Falling Apart

Firstly, I want to express my sincerest apologies to all those who follow my blog, or enjoy reading my articles. The absence I took from writing was not entirely by choice, though I wouldn’t say that I was without the option to write. For those of you who don’t know, I have 2 jobs, one…

Life’s Hurdles

The past few days, I haven’t really been writing, or keeping up with my socials. I also have felt the all too familiar “weight” returning to my life. Which honestly, as I’ve written before, scares the absolute sh*t out of me. Yet, through what I have learned in therapy, I think that I will be…

I know I said on Twitter that I wasn’t going to write a post today, but I can’t help it when creativity strikes. Yesterday, my mind felt blank, which is something I’m getting used to, slowly but surely. I also am trying to avoid some mistakes I made with my prior blog, namely writing when…
