- trigger warning for self harm mention I guess? - 

so there is a scratch right across my wrist and it has scabbed and it is reminding me of 2009 and it is reminding me of 2010. But I got this scratch from working at the farm, an errant thorn from the raspberry vines scraping across tender skin. I got it from picking fruit for others to eat. I got it from being part of the chain of growth and food and I got it from getting my hands dirty with the earth and with juice and with sunburn. I got it from enduring and waking up early and earning money and keeping going even when my legs hurt. I got it from finishing my shift. I got it from raspberry thorns. I got it from life, not from wanting to be dead. It won't scar. 

I'm getting another poem published soon, I'm being a bridesmaid soon to the wedding of a man and a woman who were my best friends during my gap year. I introduced them to each other and they're very happy and I am happy for them. I've finished my first year of university and I've done really well because I am studying what I love and that makes it worth it to me, even if I have no idea where I'm going after this. Even if my field will never be hiring. I caught up with an old friend recently and he bought me chips. I'm getting there with my driving, even when it's frustrating and my anxiety gets on top of me. At the end of this year I'm going to be moving out with a friend and we'll probably make a lot of terrible mistakes but we'll probably have fun too. 

2015 was a big year. I don't know if 2016 will be big, too, but things are happening and things are moving and I'm sure when my next bad dark day rolls around it'll all seem terrible, insurmountable and I am absolutely sure that those bad dark days will pass too and life will just be a big patchwork of shit like it always is. Hope you're all well! Much love.
