It seems that May was split into four parts. Firstly, there’s been a huge chunk of coursework and mock exams to get through, which despite being stressful, I’ve dealt with pretty well. The second part is this feeling of inadequacy and insignificance in my friendship group, which has become this shape shifting monster of brighter and louder voices. Weaved amongst these two things is complete laziness amongst the chaos (hence the lack of blogging) and also the nice parts, seeing Hairspray live, my brother’s birthday, National Trust visits, Manchester Art Gallery and woodland covered with bluebells.
My poetical endeavors have been few and far between, but the things I have produced are probably my favourites so far. I have also written a short story that I’m really proud of and my post ‘the natural woman‘ got so much more attention on WordPress than I ever imagined. I do apologize for not being around as much in May, but I am hoping to change that.
GOALS SET IN MAY
Share some of my short stories: I did it! I made the effort to get back into short story writing and I shared with you something called Rays and Jellyfish. If you haven’t read it yet, please do and tell me what you think.
Celebrate 400 followers: To be honest, I didn’t really know what to do, but I hope you guys enjoy the content I produce anyway. My blog hasn’t grown very much this past month, becuase I’ve only made like 5 posts, but hopefully June will be more productive.
POETRY & STORIES WRITTEN IN MAY
The hardest bit about June will be not going Glastonbury this year. Honestly, my little white privileged heart tries not to think about not going, because it’s such an amazing place and all I want to do right now is escape to its utopia of creativity. But hopefully June will follow in May’s footsteps with its sunshine and there will be plenty of other things to be happy about. Who knows where I’ll be in a months time?
Thank you so much for reading,
