You like make-believe and butterflies? No.
You don't want to believe in what you know.
Pretend we're happy so long as a smile,
Though, it feels like I've died for a while.
You don't care, you won't care. I know that true.
Because I know I mean noting to you.
You can pretend, I know that you will
Keep going to see how long it takes to heal.
It was clear now that you didn't love me.
In love you can't be as mean as you'd be.
You demanded all of me without words,
And expected me to know what you'd need.
If I was wrong, or forgot you'd leave me
Empty so I'd run to meet your decree.
You'd know exactly how to make me beg
To give you one of my arms and a leg.
Sip me, drink me dry. Take all of my heart
And leave me to die. Just tear me apart.
It's not like you were one to be polite.
I'll know you'll get what you want anyway.
You wanted all of me and gave nothing.
I'm not your queen, but you're my tyrant King.
Well, immediately following the quarantine, life was looking a little bleak. I mean, I work at a summer camp with little kids. We weren't even sure if that was going to open this year, which meant I would be out of a job. Fortunately it did. And my social life was also looking a little sad. Outside of not really getting to see my boyfriend, my friends were all afraid to leave their house for fear of catching the contagion! But at least I got to try some really good foods. Psyche! There are a lot of food chains missing in the little town that I go to college in. So whenever I go home, I can't help but indulge my cravings. But most of my favorite places had modified hours that conflicted with my work schedule. No good food for me.
However, I'm not here to only spout sad news.
Because this summer, I got to do a little work for myself. I created some fabulous prints that are now available in the print shop. Click the SHOP button above to get there. And I got a whole lot of writing down. But like I said in my Recent Updates post, I won't putting out any written publications in 2020. But with all the progress I've made, keep a look out for some stuff early in 2021. Of course I'll make an announcement here and on all of my social medias so make sure to go follow me!
On top of all that I've gotten to really take a look at myself. I had a chance to evaluate my goals in both my career and my life in general. What is it that I want? And how do I make that happen? Am I doing it for anyone other than myself?
Despite the catastrophe at the beginning of the year, I would say that this summer has been an overall success. And with all of its success, I am very glad that I will beginning again in classes every soon. Next week in fact.
Until next time, stay safe!
