Spending my night with some YA fiction and The Atlantic. Also working on my first short story with actual dialogue in it (how am I just doing this for the first time?!) and working on grad school applications. (this probably has a lot to do with my mood today, actually.)
I’ve been feeling kind of down today. Trying to figure out how to make what I want what I have is exhausting. Everything is exhausting to me lately. I’m trying to stay inspired. I keep finding all of these amazing blogs that are making me realize that I really need my life to be different than it is now.
I pass by here every morning when I wake up way too early to move my car from one side of the street to the other. It’s such a nice oasis from the trash and boarded up buildings that line the street. It’s tucked in between two apartments, so if you blink you’ll miss it, but it’s one of my favorite things in my neighborhood.
