Autumn is for Quiet Days

Autumn is for quiet days

With headphones in, acoustic afternoons

With a note for each leaf that flutters from the trees,

For sweaters that comfort from the chilled winds,

For slow sips of warm tea

With hints of orange and nutmeg.

Autumn is for long poems

With mesmerizing images and shimmering words,

For dusty sunbeams

That flicker between golden trees,

For the contrast of gray mornings

And bright leaves.

Taking the Days One at a Time

Hi all.

Just wanted to put it out there that I’m going through some hard things right now with school and family. It’s making things harder than they need to be and I need some time to work through what’s happening.

I don’t know how long it will be before things are back to normal. For now, at least, my priority is to keep working my way through each day and each week, and take things as they come. I have a distinct lack of time to do things I enjoy right now, so posts will likely be extremely intermittent if not completely nonexistent for a while. I’ll just keep taking the days one at a time, and eventually, things will get easier.

Summer

I have had surprisingly little content to post the past few days! That’s not good- I was looking forward to the summer because I thought I’d have more. Oh well, it’s only the beginning.

Boring post about my life today! I haven’t done much yet this summer. An average day is mostly just summer homework and not much else. I have done some other things, including:

-Obsessive reading of webcomics

-Obsessive following of said webcomics

-Integrating myself into the fan base of said webcomics

-Baking

-Bike rides

-Training

-More obsessive webcomic-reading
