Today I smoked my last cigarette. It’s time to let go of a bad habit before I get too far down this road. I’ve had a respiratory infection for over a month, and in the past 6 months I have been sick 85% of the time. Cigarettes weaken my already-lacking immune system, and my lungs can’t heal if I continue to poison them. At the beginning of this year I set some goals for myself, and I need to follow through. Step one to being healthier is ridding myself of the garbage in my life, and cigarettes are a big stinky smear on my life. Here’s to keeping myself clean of them!
Thanks to everyone still keeping up with me!
My life’s smoothing itself out once again; stress doesn’t stick around much anymore. We’re nearly halfway through Sherwood already, and thus far it’s been a decent run. I’m managing my booth on the weekends and I get about 25-30 hours in during the week coordinating fundraising for my boss’s franchise and popping kettle corn for events. I’ve got my affairs for Scarby in order, and should expect a good amount of work there. That gives me time to arrange my Colorado situation and determine where I’d like to go before TRF.
I’ve spent my spare time with my family out here, nurturing friendships and raising shenanigans in the warm weather. I haven’t spent much time on crafts, but I may take up dream catchers again. I’d like to find a cheaper, faster method to produce them so I can get some out on consignment or at Bazaar. I’m working on improving my health and fitness (albeit slowly), and brushing up on some juggling skills.
Life is good to me, folks. Spreading love to all of you in return! <3
Bloody mary and chile rellenos with my friends. Oops, I accidentally had a good valentine’s day.
I’m thankful for the small things in life.
Today I got to get out of the horrible cold and spend time indoors. I got to get some work done, take a hot shower, eat some cooked food. I got to love on some cats and dogs, condition my hair with olive oil and honey, play MTG with a deck of my very own. I got to do laundry without quarters.
Tomorrow I wake up bright and early to return home, and it’s still cold, but I’ll be working the rest of the week with friends and looking forward to a warmer weekend.
Sometimes it’s good to have a physical reminder of the good things in my day, no matter how insignificant. These moments add up, like pennies. And I’m turning all my pennies face-up from now on.

I’m having a rough time with the new self-confidence goal of mine. I get that travis chooses to be with me every day, and I am grateful, but I have seen pictures of nearly every girl he’s been with before me and they are all freaking hot as shit, supermodel-quality women and I know they are all smart, funny,etc. Like, how the hell can I feel beautiful next to them?? How can I be a satisfying person when he can get girls like that? I just can’t help but feel irrationally self-conscious.
I may have chosen a life in tents, but I sure did not choose this weather. Remember kids, while you’re complaining about the cold from the warmth of your house, a whole community is freezing outside. Just another day in the life…
I am legitimately fearful that someday all the medical problems I’ve been ignoring or that have gone undetected because I don’t have insurance are gonna put me in the hospital for days or weeks and then my entire life will be ruined by debt. What good is a healthcare system that can save your life if the thought of the cost makes you want to commit suicide? How sick is it that my biggest concern about being comatose is not whether I live through it but that I can’t afford to live through it?
After tonight I am pretty convinced that I am dating a wizard.

Watching him interact with people is like its own exhibit. There is literally no way to accurately describe what its like to watch him take over the attention of a room; much charisma. Such enchantment. It’s unreal, like a too-perfect book character. He’s this nerdy kid with weird outbursts that would make any other person a social outcast, yet he could walk 15 minutes in any direction and find a hot girl’s butt to touch. Girls who would make a male model drool painfully practically throw their clothes at him, and I cannot even begin to fathom how he does it. I mean he could probably get the keys to some kingdom just by batting an eyelash.
Today we went to a movie at the theater he used to work at, and aside from the usual flock of female employees desperate for his attention, girls whose names he didn’t even know, whom he had never worked with, were talking about him. Like…. I just…
Maybe he’s secretly a demigod or something. I can’t understand.
