It's FINALLY Autumn (Sorta)



I can't believe September is here. I know I have not been as diligent as I should be regarding this blog, but I promise I can explain (but I cannot guarantee this will be the last time this happens. Haha!)


When we last spoke here, I was having a bit of trouble picking myself up after life really knocked me down. And to be perfectly honest, it just continued to spiral deeper and deeper into a negative space. To say I was down between March and now is an understatement; I was straight-up depressed. I found myself completely ruining my sleep schedule, I was incredibly unmotivated, and I wasn't taking care of myself.


Depression is kind of funny in the way that it sneaks up on you, settles in, and you have no idea that it is there. For as long as I can remember, I always had these small spells of the "morbs." They never lasted long, and I could usually pull myself up by my bootstraps and find a way out of these episodes with a bit of ease. But this time...that was not the case.

Unfortunately, I couldn't hide what I was feeling after a few months. My friends and family started noticing; I was isolating more and more. I wouldn't return calls and I didn't want to go anywhere. I just spent my days sleeping and my nights at home, constantly distracting myself and trying to avoid feeling like a complete and utter failure. It doesn't help that unlike most people who deal with seasonal depression in the winter, I get smacked with it during the summer.


But here we are and it is September. I am feeling tons and tons better. And I have been making sure to take care of myself, work on my book, and go on little adventures.


As I mentioned, I have been tackling my novel in full force. I am hoping that I will be finished with the first draft come November (fingers crossed!) It has been really healing to put this story on paper, as a lot of it is pulled from my own life experiences. It centers around family, death, crisis, heartbreak, and addiction. Plus there is a fun supernatural element to it that I think a lot of people will enjoy.


September has always been a month of rejuvenation for me. For one thing, it is my birth month. Second, it signifies the coming of autumn (but let me be perfectly clear: spooky season normally starts when the first Halloween decorations come out after the 4th of July. And no, you cannot convince me otherwise.) I woke up on August 31st feeling like I had a shot of adrenaline to the chest and the good feelings have only continued from there.


So for all of you sitting back and waiting for me to show up, thank you for being patient. Thank you for your calls and texts, DMs and memes, love, and support. It means the world to me when I am stuck in that inner world of hopelessness, fear, and shame. You make it possible for me to lift my head up and climb out again.


I look forward to sharing more with you, more frequently as well. Be sure to follow over on Instagram for more nonsense!


Happy Hauntings!
