She had blue hair
No eyebrows
Piercings everywhere
And I mean everywhere
She had lines down her arms
But she didn’t hide them
She announced them proudly, her own little banners
She waved them in the faces of the sneering crowds
Who dared to think they could judge her
She was immune to their poison, she’d already bled it out
And learned to love those who hated her
Because they had made her
An immobile rock
An immovable mountain
A crystal, grown beautiful in the darkness of her own mind.


New things

Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while; I’ve been working on something big! I’ll get to that in a moment, but I wanted to give you guys a little update.

I’m taking summer classes and getting very emotionally invested in naps, so that’s monotonously fun. I’m also working at the zoo again, which is better than it was last year, but still not great. My orientation for uni is next week! I’m so nervous! I know I shouldn’t be, but I’m so spectacularly clueless about everything that I might mess up something important. We shall see.
I fell last week and scraped up my legs pretty badly. I looked like I’d been in a car crash! But it’s getting better! I’m not getting as many sympathetic looks, which makes me a lot more comfortable. I’m not the biggest fan of attention. That’s probably not a good thing.
I also went to a wedding! In South Dakota! Where it is warm! I got sunburned! It hurts! I also kissed a German man! I love the mountains! I’m using a lot of exclamation points because it’s late and I’ve been stuck in this car for sixteen hours! It was an overall great weekend!
Okay, now on to the big thing. I’ve been considering starting a blogging series. As in, a novel spread out across blogging entries. I am thinking of making it one chapter a week. What do you all think? Would you like to see some of my longer writing? I’m still working out kinks, so it will probably be a while, but I want to get some feedback before I launch such an endeavor. What do you think? Good idea? Or do you think I should stick with short poetry?

Also, what are your summer plans? What is your favorite kind of sea creature? What did you wish upon a star for when you were little?
