Mistakes I think I will always look back on this time and wonder if I made a mistake. Part of me will always be curious about what I would have done if I didn’t end up coming to DC with him. I think part of me will also always wonder if things could have ever worked out with Cameron. I will probably forever wonder if I could’ve ever truly made it in New York or if it would have taken a toll on my spirit and soul. I will probably also always wonder if I would have liked DC if I didn’t come during a pandemic. Would it have the same sparkle? Would I still be impressed?
Everlasting friendship is the best!
Looking at those three gifts this morning makes me a little nostalgic. I like colourful gifts. My friends know me quite well. They always choose gifts thoughtfully for me, so I feel like I am spoiled. Gifts for birthdays, Christmas, and other occasions. My best friends are very dear to me. I was able to see them at least once a month before the lockdown. The current lockdown restriction prevents us from visiting each other.

Step Back; You Don’t Know Me Like That
“I like people too much or not at all.” Sylvia Plath I need a few things I’m shopping at a home improvement store. I’ve got a list of six items I need. My mask is on because I live in wild Florida. A home improvement store associate walks into my six-foot circle to ask me if I need help. I step back two steps; they step forward two steps. I wave my arms around my body in a windmill motion to illustrate that I need space. I tell her I’m looking for 116-inch blind slat replacements. Two of my slats broke. I’m trying to avoid replacing the entire sliding door blind. She checks; they don’t have them in that long length. “Thanks,” I answer, as I continue backing away. The associate follows me, telling me they could special order the replacements. “No,” I say and almost bump into a floor display, making my escape. She reaches to help me.

I don’t know why I’m like that, I just am. I’ve tried and with a great deal of effort, clear communication has become a kind of a second language to me.
