I made it you guys! I officially have a graduate degree in creative writing. I never thought in a million years that this would happen. But, with the guidance of my mentor and support of my loving cohort, I did it.

Gosh. I just love when Madinah does my make-up. She wanted to try a soft face with a blue lip.

She also wrapped my turban for me. I love the new style.

I got a letter in the mail telling me that I no longer have health insurance. I need allergy shots. Glasses. My yearly physical. My monthly birth control pills. And I was going to enroll in therapy because I need it again. I did break down this morning. But, I will not allow life’s inconveniences to break me fully. But instead mold me. Because with hardship is ease. Because pain is temporary. Because things are falling apart for a reason, a grander scheme and I have to move with it or get crushed in the process. I arrived home last night, and my former roomie took me to get tacos. It was so nice to catch up. I explained to him the woes of moving from his cushy home. That it was a mistake to leave. Because I’ve been going through it. I told him that I’ve cried more in the last two months than I have in the last two years. He said, “When you first moved with me after your divorce, you were in a similar situation. You got through that. How can you get through this?” He was right. I had gotten through that. I thought back to what I did. I know I cried a lot. I beat myself up. Told myself that I should’ve been okay being abused emotionally and whatever else he was doing. That I deserved to be battered because I was a bar person. I also submerged myself into creating. Videos and makeup and stories and narrative and I posted all of that here. That’s how I wrote my whole book. The one that’s being published in October. It wasn’t about money or popularity. I was creating because it felt right. It gave me something to do. What has been that one thing that has always saved you in times of desperation? What’s your motto for when messed up things happen back to back?
