I'm FIIINNAALLY getting back to this topic on my blog! For those unfamiliar, earlier this year I was introduced to the KonMari tidying process and began blogging about it. Due to some serious life changes, much of my tidying process, and especially blogging about it, has slowed to a crawl.

About a week ago I just quit. The daily poem challenge finally beat my ass and I surrendered. There's no possible way I can continue to write a new poem every day for a year and not go absolutely crazy. I'm dealing with health issues and emotional issues and I'm just so exhausted. Making sure … Continue reading here I am
