Three Years: Poetry Book Anniversary

This will be a slightly different entry on the blog, which I’m slightly nervous about. I rarely do this, if ever, but I’ll be sharing the links to both of my little poetry collections at the end of this post, to celebrate the third anniversary of my second writing project, A Cryptic Human Entity.

It’s been a journey, a lot has been going on since then, not necessarily of the creative sense, although, I look forward to the next chapter of my writing’s progression/era.

A Cryptic Human Entity in particular, that collection means a lot to me. It was the first time I’d felt brave enough to show a lot of poems that were darker, many of which I always wanted to make public in some way.

When that project was being created, I was still coming to terms with the passing of my grandmother almost two years prior, there were a lot of suppressed emotions and feelings. I definitely wanted to get out of my comfort zone, no matter how uncomfortable it made me feel.

It was an emotional experience, but so liberating at the same time.

Hard to believe it’s been three years already. I still remember how happy I felt receiving my copies of the finished product in the mail. I’ll never forget that moment.

Said this many times before, but I do understand that I’m not the best at writing, yet I will say that I write for me, first and foremost. If anyone likes it at all, it’ll always be so appreciated.

I’ve spent too long seeking approval from others, and the older I get, the more I am finding confidence and acceptance within myself. I am a work in progress, and so are my thoughts, feelings, emotions and poetry/stories.

As mentioned at the beginning of this post, I’ll leave the links to A Cryptic Human Entity & Lay Your Hands Bare down below, feel free to take a look (or not) and thank you in advance.

Sixth Anniversary Of The Blog

Today is the sixth anniversary of my beautiful, little sanctuary on this side of the internet. To say that my blog means the world to me would be a complete understatement. And to think that it has been a part of my life since I was 19 is emotional, to say the very least.

DAYDREAM MADNESS was the beginning of a long and complicated journey, it was created before I started independently publishing poetry collections, and as I embark on writing for my third, I can’t help but feel an enormous sense of gratitude for how it has shaped my life and who I am as a person today.

It can feel so weird to look back on certain times in life, yet, it is great to see how life has changed for the better.

I look forward to seeing what the future has in store, but until then, I’ll see you on the next post tomorrow. Have a great day!

And again, happy 6th birthday, DAYDREAM MADNESS. I love you.

Rambling Type

It feels like half of my recent blog entries are often not as interesting as they could be and I do apologize about that. Since it’s a personal blog of sorts, yet very open and transparent, I do feel like it’s a strange mix of the two.

Although, I’m always so grateful to anyone who reads any of it. Definitely encourages me and inspires me to keep going. This blog has been a big part of my journey as a person and that is incredible.

Next month marks six years of this blog (many name changes but we’ll ignore that)

Hard to believe that I’ve kept this active for so long, I never stuck to any other blog or website like this. I’m dedicated, for sure.

Where this will lead further into the future, I’m not sure.

The only way is forward, with time.

I spent most of the day focused on studying for this exam, which is a big achievement for me as I usually don’t like it at all. However, failing would honestly disappoint me, so there’s that.

Will try and find an interesting topic to discuss tomorrow, if my schedule will allow an early post.

I’m also waiting for a piece of furniture to be delivered, plus there’s phone calls to be made, a webinar to access at 11am, a lot of math revision because I will try my hardest not to fail this exam on Friday.

That being said, I hope you all have a good rest of Tuesday.
