two days today

Day 7: ballad; What do you think about when you think about your neighborhood?

childhood laughter fades away
chalk outlines of make-believe towns
live unknown in our memory alone
mud soups and tag games
morph into digital pictures
in electronic frames

The first thing that came to mind was the neighborhood I grew up in, full of kids. We were pretty much always outside playing- riding bikes, pretending and making up our own games, drawing with chalk…anything. Then I compared those memories to the neighborhood I moved to in High School where a crowd of kids is super rare. I see more kids playing with ipads and watching tv than I care to admit

Day 8: Elegy. It’s supposed to be about flavor but I changed it :p literary flavor is a thing right?

Upon my shelves lie some books
that withhold their sneers and judging looks
No matter what I might need
they bring me love, escape, and even greed
I’m indebted, reliant, supported, content
any time with a book is a good time spent

About Erin Goes Blah- I rant forever

Ever heard of Erin Go Brah? The horse obviously, not the saying! I'm him, in human form but slightly less successful and well known. Perhaps you've also heard of a man named William Shakespeare? In "A mid-summer nights dream" he says, "though she be but little, she is fierce" in reference to Hermia...I have a little bit of that in my mix too. I'm a 26-year-old big kid with occasional adult tendencies just trying to figure out my place in life. Chronically single and exhausted I am the keeper of two jobs and three pets. With approximately 2 hours of free time per day, ​I tend to use it relaxing- leading to much musings and wonderment. I plan on using this blog to reach out to others, and to my inner conscience to better understand my odd habits and talk myself out of them. I hope to bring attention to those in eating disorder recovery, by being open about my hardships and hurdles. I'm weird, silly and looking for someone to share the love with :)
