My Month

Of all the trying times in my life, this one happens to be one of the more daunting. I may lose a friend and it would be a lie to say I’m not equal parts relieved and sad, but at the very least I know that it’s coming. We both discussed it. The current Covid disaster didn’t cause it, it mostly exposed what the underlying problems have always been. I don’t know if I’ll write about it just yet, I would hate to put my friend-troubles as “content”, but it’s also a learning experience as well, so I don’t know. But if I do decide on it I would want my friend’s permission if I were to go into more detail.

On a less personal note, what would you think if I changed the color scheme and maybe added a logo? As much as I kind of hate the whole “everything is a brand” mindset, it does gather more attention. I want this blog to be successful, but I don’t want to lose authenticity.

Other than that I’m also back in school and trying to juggle everything somewhat unsuccessfully. I’m trying to have a social life along with school and it never really worked out for me in the past, so I’m not sure why I think it would work now except for that now all my classes are online. Am I being too chatty about my month? Feel free to stop, if it’s getting to be too much. I’ll just close out by saying this month was a bit of a mixed bag.

Plant update

I bought two new plants and created a propagation. I named them accordingly. There is a ZZ Plant in my collection called Philip Coulson, a Marble Queen Pothos named Amelia, and the propagation’s name is Frank N. Stein (because I enjoy jokes).  Anyways here is my green family photo.
