Day 4: “E is for “Excitement“. When was the last time you ever got excited?”
This is a hard one. I don’t feel excited for many things in my life. I have thought about it all day and finally remembered that I was super excited when I got into Colorado State University. It was hard at times, but it was one of the best experiences in my life. I would love to return to school. I have so much I want to learn so I can improve my life.
Nowadays, there isn’t anything to be excited about in my life. I feel dead inside. Stagnant. I feel alone, but I try to pretend all is well in front of most people. I am around people who don’t want to know about me and what hurts. I am around people who don’t care to let me flourish into a beautiful butterfly. Butterfly is such a weird word. It is not butter that flies. Can we make a petition in 2021 to change the name to something that is more fitting? That would excite me.
I applied to University of New Orleans (UNO) for a Masters in Creative Writing. If I get in and I am able to graduate, then I would be extremely excited. I have learned to curb my excitement.
There is one thing that is a little exciting for me. I have started a non-profit food pantry. It is a lot of work and very stressful, but hopefully it will be good for the community around me. I guess helping others is exciting because you do not know how people will take it. Some people are grateful and some are just very human.
