Failure After Failure

Another bad day. Boo hoo, poor me. Tough luck because everyone is going through something and my problems are not 1 in a billion. I know that so there is no hiding. Except I still do because, what the hell, every time I take a bold step towards change does not mean I can become…… Continue reading Failure After Failure

The Everlasting Search

I run the pad of my finger over the soft surface in pursuit of flat smoothness, of bumps, and unevenness. A formed habit from long ago, isn’t it strange how much I think I need this?

I’m Late = Avoid the Situation

I keep making the same mistake again. I’ll be honest about what it is, but even on this blog, I am feeling kind of embarrassed to write openly about the issue. It’s been a recurring problem that I want to change. Not to change for other people, but for myself because the choice I keep…… Continue reading I’m Late = Avoid the Situation

Body Aches & Family Drama

I am exhausted today for no particular reason. Maybe it has something to do with me staying up wide awake past the wee hours of midnight after failing to be lulled into dreamland in order to finish reading Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge. I had so many “What the hell, did that just happen?” moments while…… Continue reading Body Aches & Family Drama
