I finished my freshman year of college on May 9th. I made Dean’s List, which was pretty amazing – nobody who knows what they’re talking about has ever told me that I’m GOOD at school before, so that felt good.
Currently, I’m waiting to hear back on several poetry submissions and one submission of flash fiction. In the meantime, I’m working on a chapbook of love poems. I’ve never been able to write quality love poems, so this is exciting to me.
Also, I’m still doing school online! I’m currently taking a prerequisite Spanish 102 course and a gen-ed course called Contemporary Social Problems (SOCL 102). After SOCL 102, I’ll be taking Enviromental Science and the World History: 1500’s – now. It’s kind of dumb, but these classes get me out of bed in the morning.
Lastly, my family is moving! In 6 days, I’ll have left behind being a resident of Northern Virginia and will begin living in Midlothian. Pretty cool.
Those are my endeavors. Here’s a excerpt from a poem I wrote today called “The B Side”
I’m no longer in mint condition
because someone took me out of my box
