Retail therapy is a great quick fix for the blues or even the magentas (100pts if you get that). I mean, who doesn’t feel better after shopping? It’s exciting! Just don’t look at the bill or how much you spent right away. No sense ruining the buzz for no reason. Granted retail therapy is a short term solution for a bad mood and has no real therapeutic value, but at least at the end of it you have something to show for your money. Thus, I must argue that it is a far better vice than drugs (except marijuana lol), alcohol, or gambling (especially if you suck at it.) While, it none of the aforementioned proclivities can replace actual therapy, it is a great way to perk yourself up. There are some lasting benefits to shopping, too. You buy multiple items and you get excited each time you use/wear one of your new items for the first time. Then as you discover more about the items, its even more exciting. OMG, you mean this dress has pockets!?!? See? We all know women love some pockets! This blender is also a food processor? WHAT?!?! See? Exciting! Again, I’m not suggesting you use retail therapy to put yourself in the poor house or to replace actual therapy, but the next time you’re feeling a little blue…give it a try, I think you’ll discover that I’m right….as usual. *grins*

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away; Lengthen night and shorten day; Every leaf speaks bliss to me Fluttering from the autumn tree. I shall smile when wreaths of snow Blossom where the rose should grow; I shall sing when night’s decay Ushers in a drearier day. ~ Emily Brontë

Every time I close my eyes, it’s like a dark paradise No one compares to you I’m scared that you won’t be waiting on the other side Every time I close my eyes, it’s like a dark paradise No one compares to you I’m scared that you won’t be waiting on the other side All my friends ask me why I stay strong Tell ’em when you find true love, it lives on Ahh That’s why I stay here And there’s no remedy for memory, your face is like a melody It won’t leave my head Your soul is haunting me and telling me that everything is fine But I wish I was dead

I’ve tried to avoid doing photos with masks. I didn’t want to offend anyone or make light of our current situation. However, since I found out that this is no longer a one and done disease. Not only can you contract this disease twice, but the numbers are getting insanely higher by the day. So, it seems that for those of us not wanting to get sick, masks are going to be part of our lives for quite some time. Ladies are going to save a ton on lipstick!
However, I’m looking at this as an opportunity for us to really showcase our eyes. We can get super creative with our masks and matching eye shadow combinations! Okay, sure we might not do our hair with branches sticking out, but the mask and eye shadow combo are brilliant and you know it! Plus, if we have to wear masks for a while, they might as well be fashionable. Maybe if we make them cute enough we can get everyone to wear them, even those selfish assholes that think they’re too good to wear a mask.

As I was taking this picture, the sun was rising over my shoulder. I couldn’t help but think how each new day is like a new leaf on the tree of life. How it is up to us as individuals to shape that leaf into something beautiful or to let it wither up to waste away.
So, y’all gotta know I miss writing something on occasion. Should’ve known I couldn’t stay quiet for too damn long. I didn’t even make it a month. I don’t know what I’ll write about going forward. I don’t think I’ll be quite so forthcoming about my life. Sadly, there are people out there that like to hurt me and use personal information to do so. In the meantime, I hope everyone, even the haters, enjoys this summer the best you can. Let’s all eat watermelon and get sticky!
