We’re already more than halfway through September! I gotta tell ya! It’s not going how I planned!
I didn’t expect my cat to die. I didn’t expect to tell the world with what I’ve been struggling with. I didn’t expect to be too sick to be in the group shots of the event it took me months to organize. I didn’t expect to have to move my New Orleans trip that Maura got me for my birthday. I didn’t expect I still wouldn’t have money for my landlord today for September’s rent because the bank is holding all the money in a one in a billion chance trap.
But guess what? 💛 I’m still here! 💛 I still organized amazing event. 💛 I still got to meet some incredible people. 💛 I still keep tapping every day. 💛 I still have a great support system. 💛 I still have great ideas and the desire to make them happen! I am so glad you are here and that we can keep going together!
Thank you all so much for your support on my recent struggles. From my power going out, to losing my cat, to sharing my mental health struggles in 2019, to supporting my new YouTube series. It’s all been really helpful. My dad has been loving the mail you’ve sent him, and I got a bunch from you all yesterday, too. You’re all really sweet. To catch up on what’s been going on, the main stuff is below, and of course there’s my Instagram, too. Thank you again for being here. I honestly couldn’t do it without you.
