“This One’s For Me.”

Each of us are fighting battles, tending to wounds, and accepting scars; this year I’ve been on an intensive journey of self-love, awareness, and acceptance, and even though life is getting better I didn’t realize how much compassion and patience I’d need to give myself.

Goodbyes and Creativity Time (November Goals)


In the final days of October, Giovanni and I squeezed in as much time together as we could before I go to Washington for the month. This is the longest time we’ve spent apart since working together, let alone dating. Besides snuggling and binge watching Scream, we took a spontaneous trip to Berkeley (known as the most vegan-friendly city in USA – is it true? I don’t know).

So thank you for both nominating me and inspiring some civil-blogger-rebellion!

The Future of My Books (Part 1)

My story, G.D. (initials), started back in seventh grade, and I completed two books and started a third. I stopped writing regularly until freshman year, when I revamped the story and started typing it up, opposed to keeping it scribbled in numerous journals. On and off I added to the draft, until senior year sent the story souring with NaNoWriMo. I won, but the 50k seemed to only mark halfway into the story. Today, G.D. is at a dribbling pace. I broke the hiatus with the first days of July’s CampNaNo but haven’t dabbled with it since.
