Remember Kathleen, I wrote a post about her a few weeks ago titled ‘Human’. This is just another reason why she is amazing,  constantly putting a smile on my face. It’s the little things people ♡

Again/10 months

Just 29 days left in this program. 29 days and I graduate and head back home. 29 days and it’ll have been 10 months. Boy does time fly. I mean,  a month and I’m home and a month from then and I’ll be counting the seconds until it’s a whole new year.

They don’t kid, after 21 time waits for no one.

I’m nervous about going back home. Because instead of utilizing the experience I’ve gained over the past 10 months, I’m going home to my family because they need me. Back to the same room, to the same house, to the same city where it all started. Given things will be different, I will be different, but the place will still be the same place.

I’m afraid I’ll lose all the progress I’ve made over the past 10 months. So much has happen this year. I’ve grown infinite amounts and learned so much about myself and life and what I want from it. Yet I still have so much more left to learn and experience.

I need to keep moving forward even if it feels like I’m going backwards.

It’s going to be hard, I already feel the coolness of the black cloud waiting to surround me. I’m going to have to fight. I’ll need to do it alone. I almost wish I could fade into the background once I’m home, but something tells me that won’t be possible. Nonetheless, I’m going back to the same place but things have to be different.

I’ll find a way to utilize everything I’ve learned in the past 10 months, even if it’s not in the way I thought I would.

I’ll keep moving forward even when it feels like I’m going backwards.

Is it possible to miss something before it’s even gone?

Top Ten Writing Mistakes Editors See Every Day

Confessions of a Creative Writing Teacher

Goya -The sleep of reason produces monsters (c1799) recut

In addition to writing and teaching, one of the things I do for a living is to evaluate manuscripts for their suitability for publication. I read fiction (and non-fiction) across several genres, and write comprehensive reports on the books. I try always to guide the author towards knocking his or her project into a shape that could be credibly presented to literary agents, publishers and general readers. You know how Newman and Mittelmark introduce How Not to Write a Novel by saying, ‘We are merely telling you the things that editors are too busy rejecting your novel to tell you themselves, pointing out the mistakes they recognize instantly because they see them again and again in novels they do not buy,’ well they’re right; I am one of those editors.

However good the idea behind a novel, when the author is still learning the craft of writing – like any…

Again/AJ

I’ll admit at times I can be shallow, I’m human and although that’s no excuse, I can’t help but be drawn towards beautiful people. But every once and and a while I meet a beautiful person and they’re equally as beautiful on the inside, and what as joy that is. This young woman here, I’ll admit I was first drawn in by her beauty but after time I realized it was her infections spirit that kept me intfactuated. Some people just walk with a natural light inside of them, perhaps they haven’t been tarnished by the darkness of the world, or maybe they outshine that darkness. Regardless, I’ve found a light in my dear Hajar and I hope it never dies out.

sometimes you just know, you meet someone and there’s just an instant click, like you’ve found a missing piece of life, and then all of a sudden things just start to fall in place… ♡

Again/50 never sounded better

Aside from tumblr and WordPress I don’t have any other social media. I find it to be a bit to self absorbing at this time in my life. I’m trying to build a self that’s stands strong on self confidence, worth and acceptance. Social media, while it has good intentions, it doesn’t quite promote those things. I justify tumblr because pictures can be therapeutic and I find it relaxing, as long as I don’t become obsessed and manage my time spent. It’s like a treat at the end of the day on my hour carpool back to lodging. WordPress, I never looked at as social media because it is like an online diary to me. I don’t talk to anyone on the site and while I may follow other blogs and comment here and there, that is was the most contact I make. With that being said, I use WordPress with no boundaries or limitations, I am not trying to impress anyone, obviously if you go back and look at my grammar. I’m here to express me, who I am and what I’m thinking, a lot of my post aren’t even relevant to current events.

With that that being said and a picture just for shits and giggles, I am genuinely humbled to have 50 followers, even if you just pressed the button because I did. If you’re following my blog, it’s not because it’s full of pictures of me and you think I’m attractive. Nor is it because it’s associated with someone else you know, actually whatever the reason it all stems down to the fact that you have found something I’ve said amusing or insightful or relatable or just so absurd that you keep coming back for more.  Nonetheless I am honored to be worthy of your follow. I feel like I have more of a friend in you 50 followers that I ever did in those 500 Instagram followers. You people actually know the things I’m think and by some miracle you’re still here. There’s no filter on the blogs, what you see is what you get and I’m proud to say I’ve been real and if you follow me, it’s for me and nothing less and that’s a good feeling, a really good feeling.

So, thank you 50, for making me feel good.
