Okay! A huge jump from day 5 to day 6. Yes, it's not ideal, but I'm not going to give up on my 100 days! This came out of a way to bring more writing into my life; I'm happy to say the reason behind me missing my blogposts is because I've been engrossed in my finalist pitch for The Emerald Prize. Today is the due date and I think I've been working hard to discover the truth of the piece I'm pitching. After some final tweaks, I am confidently submitting a package that represents my current writing style and skill. In layman's terms, I tried my best and stayed true to myself! So, while this is somewhat of a gilded excuse for me to justify my absence, I'm also giving myself a pat on the back for sticking to my pitch's timeline and creating something original and unique to my voice.
I haven't been to a bar in forever and I went out last night! It was really fun, but definitely paying for it today. I didn't remember how slow I move the next day. This morning I woke up like a little raisin. A bit wrinkled, but still a little gem of sweetness (I would say but some may disagree).
Supposed Home is becoming quite the challenge to create. I'm very excited for this story; I just need to find the conflict. Writing this piece and getting through my audition Monday are my top priorities rn!
today I got a lot writing done. I’m with friends right now and I’m only writing to get the 100!!
USPS saga continues. My most recent package was "delivered" but is nowhere to be found. I made some phone calls and pleaded with some Amazon employees to get it redelivered. Some of the items should get here today.
Time to get writing! :)
We got our bed frame! Thank the Lord we finally put in the bed frame and "at last my right arm is complete". I really underestimated the moving in process. It's been about a week and I'm finally getting into the groove of my life. (It's about time.) Rodney slept over last night which was sooo fun. I'm so happy I met him at National YoungArts Week in Miami. He's a great person to be around and I think we treat each other like artists first. A goal of mine this year is to present myself as an artist first. I am my own small business and the way I interact with people should be similar to how a manager interacts with their customers. It's time to start distinguishing between work-mode and regular-mode. Yippee!
For 100 days, I'm going to write a blog post in "Boy from North Carolina" as a way to self reflect and meditate. I've made a habit to rush away from self reflection and "move on to the next" as a way to distract myself from my own humanity and lived experiences. Work also turns into a great distraction from my fears of death and isolation. So, on that note...let's get writing. :)
Today, I woke up earlier than usual. Due to sadness, I've been waking up around noon. Today I woke up at 10:30 to try and curb it. I bought earl grey tea last night and, by some divine intervention, my vape pen broke. I would like to see how long it takes for me to want to get a new one.
