Today is a bittersweet kind of day. Some people that have been there for me since my first days as a college student--helped me create my home away from home--are graduating and moving on to bigger and better things. I've never been so struck by feelings of loss or sadness over the ending of a chapter and the beginning of another than I am in this moment, watching one of my closest friends walk across the stage and accept his diploma. I'm bawling like a baby--in public, out in the open--but I don't even care because that means that these ...
Sometimes thinking optimistically is a lot easier said than done. I woke up this morning frustrated once again that I couldn't sleep, even after staying up until 1 or so in the morning. At first, I thought, "Ugh, this is just going to ruin my day." But instead of laying in bed and being grumpy about it, I decided that getting up and doing something productive might be better. . Surprisingly, I ended up going to the gym and got to snap this picture of the gardens I passed on my way. Not only did I spend a little time ...

Singing is hard when you're trying not to bother your neighbors at 1 am... 🤔 This has been one of my favorite songs lately: "The End of the World" by Sharon van Etten! . #ukelele#ukelelecover
it's 1:27 in the morning and all i can do is think--about you and you and you, the turntable of travesty, tragedy, sanity. tell me, tell me, when it spins where does it land? . @thewritersturf #thewritersturf#globalpoetcult

i still think of your delicate fingers in mine. your tender touch making the breath catch in my throat. twisting in my fingers, curls soft and gentle as the accent decorating your words with a fascinating complexion. - someday, my sweet Sappho. . @thewritersturf #thewritersturf#globalpoetcult

Decided to do an early #thoughtoftheday today since I apparently can't sleep anymore 😫😪 I'm still adjusting to my new medications and that means I haven't been able to fall asleep until around 1 or 2 am and then somehow I'm wide awake at 7. Well, it could be worse. I'm seeing my psychiatrist tomorrow anyways so we'll be able to discuss where to go from here. . In my sleepless hours, I've been writing.
