Hola!! Greetings from that time after Christmas. Since it has been a long time that I have been busy with other things, too busy to write anything in public, I thought I would sneak an end of year/beginning new year post in so that you still know I am trying to be a writer. Here is my fortune to tell you.

Listen, I think it’s ok to every now and then, when you feel like it, put up a picture of yourself, or talk about how good a job you did at finishing your muffin. I don’t think I come across as being egotistical when I do this because I can make jokes about how even though I have high self-esteem (known fact) I also sometimes feel like a sandwich that was left in a woman’s shoe at the goodwill. …

Let me explain… no, there is too much … let me sum up. As we all know, a‘Side-Hustle’ has become the household term for making the ends meet while also having an Etsy shop. It is a paradox of both embracing the necessity to survive and rejecting the constraints of depending solely on one’s job to do it. Yes, you need money for shelter and booze and stuff, but you also need some fulfillment damnit!

You don’t Side-Hustle at McDonald's because that is straight-up having two jobs.

When I was younger, I wished only to be in love. I searched for love down many curvy turvy roads, thick and woodsy, pushing my way through thorny unknown terrain with only a dim lantern, wondering if I would recognize it in the dark. Illusive for so long, an apparition, and a ghost, I thought maybe it was just for songs and nighttime birds. Love comes and goes and lingers in a forgotten t-shirt for just a short time. Love is a wolf that stalks me, love is just a flower that wilts, love is for everyone else. …
