My grandmother and I provided endless comfort to each other.
It’s a beautiful, lonely season.
It’s a nice place to be, with no one but me.
Last week was rough, you guys.
When the songs were SO good, you can crash SO hard.
And we talk with our hands.
It’s a new school year, but we’re still getting over summer.
When the best of times are also the worst of times (aka the blurst of times).
I can help myself snap out of it.
Making myself into a cartoon is how I learned to deal with the world.
