November has thus far been a busy month for me. I’ve been finishing up a project for submission before a December 1st deadline, preparing for another submission before a January 1st deadline, and participating in Project REUTSway. My writing career seems to be heading in the right, positive direction.
Why does it seem that whenever things in one area of our lives are going well they turn to shit in another? It’s like you accidentally walk through a curtain and see something you weren’t meant to see, a layer of grime you hadn’t noticed before. As a result things change. It seems like people always let you down in some capacity.
That’s why my song of the week is a bit melancholy. It’s a great song by the Canadian band, Sum 41, about the need for space, to be yourself. I think we all need to figure out who we truly are and stick to those principles even when life seems intent on trying to break them, and you. Sometimes we really are better off on our own. This song does a great job conveying that. I’ve been listening to it a lot this past week and wanted to share. I hope you like it.
