Just a Hello!

Hey guys!!

I just wanted to take the time to say a few things to everyone who follows my blog and takes the time to read, like and comment on my posts – you have no idea how amazing you are and how much I appreciate you!!!! I had only realized a few days ago when editing my page and adding an email subscription count that I had above 600 of you and I cannot thank you enough!!! I am so so incredibly honored and grateful.

A few more things:

Someone said to me recently out of the blue, “How many poets does it take to change a lightbulb? None! Poets can write from the darkest places”

Whatever that means to you, I took it the nonliteral way. My writing does tend to be a bit dark and somewhat depressing – this has been the case with the majority of everything I’ve ever written, from poem to song, since I was a freshman in high school. Sorry to be the debby-downer of the poetry world! 🙂 Also, I don’t want anyone to think that I live a depressed, horrible life, because I don’t and I love every person in it. I just hope my writing can touch your soul in some way, and even if you’ve never experienced anything that I’m writing about, I hope it can make you feel a way you never have before. Simply put, I hope you enjoy it 🙂

XOXO·A

From Bad to Fab :)

So I have quite a funny story for you —

At the end of last winter, I bought an on sale, gorgeous oversized (I bought a medium so it purposely would be too big) sweater from J.Crew. I had only worn it a few times, when having left it on the wash, someone else put it in the dryer for me and it shrunk 😦 It was at such an awkward size, it looked like an 8 year olds sweater! I saved it anyway, in hopes I could give it a stretch or give it away to a little kid. When pulling out my winter clothes yesterday, I threw it in the wash with a pile of other clothes, and being forgetful Alex, I threw it in the dryer AGAIN. Now, It’s SO small, I thought I could probably pull it off as a crop top!

So therefore, with a few fixes, a sad and wasteful (of money that is) situation turned out not so bad!
