So, better late than never…does that axiom work here? Probably not.
Anyways, as someone who has been busy, and I mean busy when it comes to school work, I can now officially say that on Wednesday, May 2, I will be a college graduate.
This year was crazy, as anyone would assume for a college senior! I hope you aren’t annoyed with me for leaving the blog unattended for so long.
Good news, though – two things, really!
- I was officially published in my school’s lit mag! One of my poems and one of my short stories were published. Check out my poem and story! (However, as a forewarning, my actual name – Jessica – is used on the website. It’s still me, just not my pen name). (Also, the poem is one you can find here on my blog as well!)
- This feels more impressive – after working my butt off, a few months back I was offered a position as a reporter at a county newspaper in Maine! I’ll start working there only two weeks after graduation.
Now, I want to say thank you for reading my stuff all last summer and for hopefully picking back up. I will not write as much as I did last summer because I won’t have time with my new big girl job and all, but I will try my best to add as much as I can!
One thing that will be different is, as presumably, you can already tell, the inclusion of ads on my page. I don’t know what kind of ads will appear on my page, but I hope none of them offend you or stop you from visiting my site. It was a difficult decision whether I should stop paying for my domain, and the ads tell you my decision.
I hope you are all doing well yourselves!
Here is a short poem I wrote during this semester:
(Un)Confident by: Rose Clifford
Ominous with possibilities
I sink my feet firmly into the earth
Hoping one day I am not scorched
By the decisions of my youth.
