Things to wear every day that make you feel kinda cool. The watch was my grandfather's, it's a Girard-Perregaux that is self-winding. The ring is from Greenland and is made of walrus tusk. The gold hoop earrings were from Etsy (I don't remember what shop). And the tiny skull necklace is from a vintage mexican charm bracelet. It's tiny jaw is hinged. It's amazing.
And another thing you need is friends. Ones you can call or email or tweet, or furry companions who twine around your ankles taking your eyes off the computer screen. Even if sometimes you want to yell at them, "Get off my lap! I'm working and it's hot out!"
