happy anniversary dear blog!

It’s been a year since I posted my first entry on this blog. I’ve written more in this past year than I had in the preceding four (five, really). I’ve shared photos of my travels. Most importantly, I’ve gotten to connect with so many awesome people.

I wanted to thank y’all for reading, commenting, liking, & being part of my journey. I hope to keep creating & interacting with even more great people in this upcoming year.

(dishonorable) martyrdom

there were a limited amount
of times when i could be
foolish enough to mistake
your pawns for people
who have been hurt
by anyone except you.
martyrdom is honorable
& you (supposedly) sacrifice
your happiness for others –
but nothing brings more joy
than for people to marvel
at how selfless you are.
