Perhaps some of you are wondering where I’ve been for the last few weeks…then again, maybe you haven’t. I can assure you I haven’t gone far, but I have taken a bit of a hiatus.
Writing is my escape. My problem-solver. It’s what I do when I’m ecstatic and loving life, but it’s especially something I do when I’m feeling down.
I’ll be frank: I’ve been feeling pretty down lately.
I’ve been (and still am) feeling pretty discouraged about a lot of things, many of which spiral from my lack of employment. It’s overwhelming. I’ve isolated myself, I believe I’ve hit what they call “rock bottom,” and I am finally working on pulling myself out of this pit I’ve been buried in.
I’m far from “recovered.” Some days, I’m just proud of myself for getting out of bed. It’s been a challenge and it’s going to be a long process, but for the first time in a long time…I’m feeling optimistic enough.
My two main points of focus right now are getting a job and maintaining this blog. It’s ridiculous, actually, how much I’ve written and not published. The way I write best is old school pen and paper, which is why none of my alleged writing has made it online. I have journals and folders filled up…and just from the last few months…so it’s not like I don’t have anything to say!
Well, that ends now. I can’t see myself ever feeling inspired by staring at a screen, but I can start editing and publishing what I’ve got and what’s to come.
So stay tuned, y’all. The bitch is back.
