and I’ll split apart. It’s the bi­b­li­cal story about how they [threat­ened to] split the baby in half be­cause they couldn’t de­cide whose it was. I feel like real life is like that. 11.30AM When I can I go to Jack’s Wife Freda or to the Smile and get scram­bled eggs with cheese and av­o­cado. In New York, I’ll take cabs, Uber, the sub­way, or when we’re go­ing to a num­ber of dif­fer­ent things around the city, I get on the back of my as­sis­tant’s Vespa. 1.30PM Real­is­ti­cally, I’m a jour­nal­ist, but I want to do TV again. Some­one said to me the other day: “Name some­one who ex­celled in more than one arena. Alexa, you need to fo­cus on one thing be­cause you can’t suc­ceed if you do it si­mul­ta­ne­ously.” I won’t al­low peo­ple to limit what I do. In the af­ter­noon, I might go back home and do some work. My as­sis­tant sends e-mails that say, “from the of­fice of Alexa Chung” but my of­fice is es­sen­tially my bed. That sounds re­ally un­pro­fes­sional, but it’s usu­ally just us two in bed crank­ing out e-mails. I go on Astrology Zone once a month, and I love the Se­cret Lan­guage of Birthdays. You put in your birth­day and it comes back with a sur­vey of peo­ple born on that

day and their at­tributes – it’s so spot-on, it’s in­sane. I’m a Scorpio and from the Week of Depth. I think it just means that I over­think things, and I’m re­flec­tive and dark. 7PM My friend Ten­nessee Thomas has a shop called the Deep End Club in the East Vil­lage, so if I’ve fin­ished my work I’ll stop by. I’ll likely be hun­gry at that point, so I’ll pick up a cap­puc­cino and a sand­wich from across the road and take it in. I have a close group of friends, and if I in­vite one some­where, I know that they’ll in­vite the rest. I’m out ev­ery night with them – I don’t like do­ing it for work. Half my life is spent at a dive bar and half is spent at, per­haps a Valentino din­ner. Usu­ally I’m lament­ing that my shoes are ill-fit­ting. Last night I went to karaoke, but I can’t talk about it any­more be­cause I’ve be­come like a car­i­ca­ture. I went a num­ber of times a week for about a year. When I like some­thing I be­come ob­sessed with it, even, say, string cheese. Right now it’s Lindt choco­late balls. 1AM I come home, get some wa­ter, wash my face and brush my teeth, get into bed, and fall asleep. I al­ways sleep naked. I’d like to be in bed with a boy at 10 pm, but un­for­tu­nately, that’s not what hap­pens.
