Time is the most precious substance in the world, isn’t it? We are all fighting to control time and earn more time. Fighting to use our time wisely or waste it in better ways. I wish I had more time to do the things I love, but I don’t because I’m stuck doing other things I love. School is so much. I’m writing papers, but not poems. I’m learning so much, but I miss so much learning from all of you and reading your writing and books of my choice instead of assigned documents.

I really don’t have anything to say. I just wanted to check in and say how much I miss my little home here. And all of you. And just life when it was simpler but when the fuck was that anyway? Life will never be simple; it will always be broken and beautiful. I’m almost done with my semester and then you can expect more words once I’m not draining them into papers.

PS: While I was gone, I was published in an amazing new online journal. Please check out my two poems and the AMAZING and lovely work of the other artists who were featured. You can find it all here. Massive thanks to everyone at No Falling Ribbons for accepting my work as well. You’ve inspired me to find more time and write for me again. Thanks thanks thanks xx

    Oh congrats on the publication! I haven't tried to submit any of my own writing in a few months and when I realized it had been that long I felt ashamed. I need to get back on that.

    Proud of you for pushing through school though to get closer to your dreams.
