An update

Just to start things off, we hit 40 followers! I know that might not seem like a lot to some bigger bloggers, but to me this means everything. I  started this blog as a way to relieve some stress, but now people are actually reading some of the stuff I write. Im not going to lie, thats both terrifying and exhilarating. Anyway thank you.

Let’s talk about school:

I joined a writing club at school. It’s really informal and my english teacher is just letting kids come and write poetry, but I really love it. I’m entering some of the things I’ve written on this blog in a poetry contest. If anyone has any feedback on any of my poems that would be very helpful.

Junior year has been hard. Pressure from my parents to do well has increased to a point where I can’t do anything without thinking about my future. I’m taking the SAT soon, so let’s all cross our fingers that I do well.

Another note:

I’m not as depressed as I was. I’m genuinely happier. I write about a lot of depressing posts, but I write those when I can feel that little dark part of my mind grow. When I write, that darkness seems to shrink into a manageable size. Thank you all for reading.

An Explanation

I haven’t been writing as much. In some twisted way, the only time I can come up with something I deem relatively ok, is when my mind shuts down and I don’t feel. Luckily for me, my world has been better than it has been in a long time. I might even go off my anti-depressants as well. This blog is a way for me to put my thoughts out there so they don’t attack me. Now I have control over my mind and My Bird Cage isn’t as necessary. I’m not sorry that I haven’t written as many posts because, for the first time since elementary school, I feel happy. Anyway, to the nineteen followers who’ve stuck around, thanks. I will still write, but I can’t promise I will as often as I have in the past.

Thanks for understanding ❤
