I am a 30-something, NPR listening, BBC watching, woman with three fur-babies and a plethora of dilemmas on my plate. In other words, I am a mess.
Dealing with an anxiety for the past 4 years has tampered with my lower middle-class ideologies as well as my temperament. I spent $100k getting a Master’s degree in English, which I refer to as my glorified hobby and currently spend $81/month, paying down the massive debt.
My life changed when I left my fiance of 7 years, in late April of 2017. My biggest dilemma then became: what about my kids? Leaving my fiance meant leaving my three step-children, all of whom had known me half their lives.
In August of 2017, depression impaled my reality for the first time since I was fourteen years old. It comes and goes, but mostly comes and stays. Bear with me and my fragmented reality.
In my undergraduate career, I received and undergraduate degree in creative writing and loved every second of the experience. I have short stories galore and have also written and entire crown of sonnets at one point. I love writing. I love what it does to cleanse my soul.
So here I am, opening up to anyone who feels like taking a break from their drama to help me learn how to giggle about mine. Life is full of numbing, idiosyncratic contemplation and with this blog, I hope to grow and accept the hand I’ve been dealt.
So, thank you, for reading.
