easing back into the blog

I’ve avoided blogging for a few weeks, simply because all I was thinking about was being miserable and stressed out. No one wants to hear any of that.

However, when your mom tags you, you oblige. So I’m back on the blogging horse, for now.

Five things in each of the following categories:

1. 22
2. A junior at Norfolk State majoring in English.
3. Mother to a toddler.
4. Living in Virginia Beach.
5. Writing a lot of poetry.

Today’s to do list:

1. Mop kitchen floor.
2. Try not to eat all day.

My bad habits:

1. I judge myself and others much too harshly.
