I feel like my past 5 posts have started with the same thing, making excuses for where I’ve been.
And you wanna know something?
There shouldn’t be excuses. I have time. Massive amounts of time. And you know what I do during that time?
I’ve decided to start a new part on my blog capturing the adventures I go on creating art as a college student. My awesome roomie and new best friend models and two of her photographer friends came up for the weekend and let me tell you, it was a kick ass thing.
Dear An Abusive Ex,
I refused to let anyone touch me for six months after we ended things. I didn’t even let my mom hug me. I can tell you exactly when I was when I told my mom why I didn’t like to be hugged anymore.
I work in fast food, everytime one of my co workers hands something to hand out I say thank you. It’s not necessary how I was brought up but I’m one I’ve molded myself into. Don’t get me wrong, my family taught me manners but I’ve still realized a lot about the importance of saying thank you.
