🤓 have had a whole lot of time to read over this past weekend ♥️📚 #barnesandnoble
I had a longer caption before and it didn't post lol so here is what I got... I wrote a book!!! I got to hold it for the first time tonight and see the way it will be shared with the world. I can't believe it!!! To my bestie @ang_angama
I couldn't have done this without you. Thank you for being the best friend a girl like me could EVER ask for. Thank you for holding me up when I had no energy to stand...I love you and appreciate everyday that the universe gives us. ❤❤❤ To @cathybueti
your art on my book is such an honor. For a person who talks A LOT, I am speechless. I dont know how to possibly express my love and appreciation for your representation of this book.
To those who are on this adventure with me...I once was homeless at 14 years old. I slept in hospital ICU waiting rooms to avoid detection. I once tried to commit suicide and it wasn't that I came from a bad family but I had parents that failed me. I have come a long way since that time in my life and when I say sky above me, earth beneath me and fire within me...I am not kidding. I am not kidding at all! 😊
Thank you for being on this journey with me and for all of the love and support! I appreciate it so much! This is the first of more books to come, but this is my first and we all know how important our first is!!!😁 I was thinking babies! Get your minds out of the gutter!! 😉😉😉🤣🤣🤣🤣😚😚😚😚❤ #book #babies #cherrypopped #snicker #writer #author #legend #bonafide #barnesandnoble #toughlovethebook #instagood #happy #love #2018 #first #premiere #booktour #comingsoon #authorsofinstagram #survivor #ididit #holycow #art #cover

짐풀고 아예 반팔 반바지만 입고 (모자, 후드집업이 세상 짐인 하와이😥) 다시 길을 나섰다!
호스텔 룸메 #시카고
에서 오신 할머니 에게 #알라모아나쇼핑센터
가는 길을 여쭤봤더니 버스 안내도랑 왕노맛 샌드위치 쿠폰 몇개를 쥐어주셨다.😃
와이키키 해변도 다시 한번 둘러보고 시내구경을 했다.
거의 열 걸음 마다 있는 #ABCstore
도 좋았지만 나는 #Cococove
가 왠지 더 좋아서 똑같은 샌드위치도 꼭 여기까지 걸어와서 사먹었다.
(셀프 이해 불가 고집 🤔)
까지 걸어가서 #theBus
를 타고 그렇게 가고 싶었던 #Barnesandnoble #미국서점
에서 원서 구경을 실컷했다.
배송 기간, 가격 때매 #wishlist
에 담아 두기만 했던 책들이 눈앞에 쪼르르 펼쳐져 있던 걸 보던 기쁨이란!💃
하와이는 어딜가든 나른한 하와이언 노래가 나오는데 쇼핑센터에서 네이티브 아저씨가 공연을 하셔서 걸으면서 들으면서 졸았다.🎶
폐장시간이 되니 사람들이 단체로 #트롤리
를 기다리고 있길래 나도 얼른 타고 야경구경을 하며 호스텔에 돌아왔다.
내일은 자전거를 신나게 타야하니까 신나게 취침!!(해라!!)
(유심 안된다고 긴장되서 잠 못잔 1월 8일 나 자신아😂.)

I wanted to take a moment and talk a little about where I am on my journey to being a better person, a better writer, and what some of my current struggles are. Talking about mental health can be really hard, but I'm finding it more and more important as I get older. Everyone wants to end the stigma against discussing mental health openly, but no one wants to be defined by their struggles either. Where can we find a balance? Embrace your struggle. Know your struggle inside and out. Be honest about it. But most importantly, be working against your struggle every moment you can. Work towards healthy choices, and self-love, and compassion, and patience. Identify and discuss what you're weaknesses are, as openly as you're comfortable with, then identify ways to better yourself. Don't get comfortable wallowing. I did. This past year has been wallow heavy for me. As much as I was saying I was taking the year for my mental health, I spent a lot of time giving in to the shitty feelings and low motivation. My self care was staying in bed all day sometimes, and that isn't self-care, that's destructive. With "Side Effects" I try very hard to create a safe space for readers to feel and relate and laugh and cry without feeling hopeless. My goal was to have even the darkest pieces have a sense of humor or hope or love in them. Take your struggles as they come, but don't let them plant roots.

Next on the list: The Last Mrs. Parrish. I’ve been waiting years (or weeks) to read this! Funny story: ordered this weeks ago, and thought I sent it home to be waiting for me al perfectly on my doorstep when we got back home after Christmas. So you can say i was shocked when to my surprise I got home, and there was no book! Naturally, my first thought was someone stole my amazing new book, and now I’m pissed. Turns out, I accidentally sent the book to my parents house in Ohio 🤷🏽♀️ and now I needed to wait for my mom to send it to me. Insert Alabama snow storm when all mail was delayed. Needless to say, this book has been around! Also, ordered it in large print and the large print cover isn’t nearly as pretty. No idea how I went so wrong 😩😂 Let me know if you’ve read it!
