Things I learned in 2015 that I didn't in my first 28 years of life...

Firstly, I’ve learned what it is to be in a real relationship
Now I didn’t only now learn this
He’s been learning me since day one
Because I lived in fantasy
And he in reality
And once I sipped the koolaid
He insisted that I chug it

Now this had to come first
To set the premise and help you understand

I’ve learned that I’m a bit anal
Not that I’ve tried anal
Or that I like or dislike it
Just that I am

I’ve always known I liked things in a particular way
But didn’t realise how much it bothered me
until there was someone always insisting on challenging my every move

I’ve learned that the stars told the truth
And I’m a bit of a perfectionist
I want every aspect of my life, especially the part that I share,
To go according to the fantasy
I didn’t know I created in my mind

I’ve learned there are more dark days than I’d like
So I’m doing my best to keep in mind that every day is a new day
To remember the good and not dwell on the bad
Because there’s no benefit in dwelling

I’ve learned that regardless the distance, I really do
Have some great friends that I have taken for granted
More than I’ll admit to

I haven’t learned but I’ve been reminded
Why I wanted a man like him
I mean, I thought he was an asshole before
But when the ring went on the gloves came off
And it turns out…the honeymoon stage was the past 3 years.

Now it’s time to see if I can last until forever
Now it’s time for less fluff
It’s time to set the undercoat for the years to come
Because we’re doing nothing less than death parting us

I have learned that there are probably enough new things
To learn until the day after forever
And he will ensure that everyday I learn something new
And everyday I’ll probably fight the process
But everyday, we get closer.
So, it took me long enough but I finally submitted my 52 pieces. Started in January 2012 and it took me until April of 2013, think I'm a few months off. :p

Maybe I'll try a 30 day challenge or 4 wk or maybe another 52 next year. Hopefully my life will be consistent enough to get that done.

Either way, thanks to anyone that actually followed me for those 52 wks, that offered feedback or showed interest in my work. It really was appreciated.

started writing in high school as part of the curriculum and took a liking to it. it became a way for me to vent when something was bothering me and i couldn't find the courage to tell the person. and now serves as a creative outlet. as something that's mine
