“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” —Maya Angelou

Hey, uhm,

I like learning about stuff,

like self-help and life-achieving…

Strategies… Phrases…

I like to write as well as make bad jokes,

(the latter may only sometimes be in writing),

I like to think about life

and sometimes learn (some) about people weirdness,

(aka psychology/neuroscience),

as well as share my handful of disabilities.

Maybe you know me in real life

and think to yourself, “huh, she looks normal,”

then I space out for 19 minutes straight and you ask my family if I’m ok.

I also have a husband and a puppy—or maybe they have me.




Does it make you uncomfortable that this format seems to suggest this is a poem?
