for the love of life...

Not dead, just...quiet

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 30, 2015, 2:53 PM
Aight! I'm not dead, my lovelies! I have a pulse, warm flesh and a semi-aware consciousness. The past few months have been h-e double hockey sticks. I injured my acromioclavicular joint (AKA AC joint) during my August fight. The bad news? It won't ever heal. I believe the injury is pinching a nerve because my hand, which is connected to my injured shoulder, goes numb and gets cold quickly. I've also gained some weight since August because I haven't been training as I used to. It's incredibly frustrating. The injury stole the wind from my sails, and I've been in a slump for awhile.

There is some good, actually great, news: I'm studying in England during my spring semester. I leave January 9th. I'll be abroad for a whole five months, maybe longer? I'm overwhelmed: nervous, anxious and excited. I want to puke just thinking about it. I GOT THE BUTTERFLIES. 

I had my last day of bartending, and it was horribly sad. I'm going to miss my bar family. I plan on writing to a handful of my patrons who truly have become a part of my family. Older men who have supported me since day one. I'm becoming tearful just thinking about it. Despite all the horrible nights and obnoxious drunks, I loved bartending at the little cocktail lounge and met many great people. I will attempt to stay in touch with as many as I can. I love 'em all <3

As I begin to pack for my England trip, I promise to jump on deviantART. I love this website and the great literature community. I LOVE YOU ALL! And hey, if you have any tips for my naive self, please let me know! This is my first time traveling abroad, so all advice is much appreciated!

“The mind of a writer can be a truly terrifying thing. Isolated, neurotic, caffeine-addled, crippled by procrastination and consumed by feelings of panic, self-loathing and soul-crushing inadequacy. And that’s on a good day.”
