Bright Blue Skye

Writer. Pet trainer. Barista. Queer girl. Recovering from disordered eating, self-injury, and a whole host of other sweethearts. I love words and how they fit together. I love how it feels to hold hot things. I think crying is underrated. I know it is, in fact. My dog just might be more neurotic than me, and I’m pretty sure that’s why we like each other so much. I used to fear being crazy, but I don’t think that word means anything anymore. I’m lucky—I think we’re all lucky—for having weirdnesses. It gives the world more spice. I must admit though… sometimes it sucks being afraid of cellphones.
Thank you for glancing at my page. I hope you stay. ☺

Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box.” It’s that kind of day. <3

My protagonist is dark. I need a little darkness.

It&#8217;s cold, cold, cold outside. I&#8217;m still chilly after slipping into fuzzy socks, thick slippers, drinking tea, and lighting a candle. And I&#8217;m sitting under two blankets. :)
Day Four: Make yourself a healthy breakfast (in addition to everything else).
In due time. Right now I&#8217;m just happy the sky is white and I don&#8217;t have to go anywhere. &lt;3

I&#8217;m going to try the &#8220;self help challenge&#8221; (see last reblog). I decided to start by posting a photo with my wiry little chihuahua pup who loves me more than I think is healthy most days. &lt;3
Day one: Look in the mirror and say something nice about yourself.
To which I say, while brushing my hair in front of the bathroom mirror, &#8220;Effy, you look damn good with Bob Dylan&#8217;s face across your boobs.&#8221;
First day down. :) And it wasn&#8217;t even that hard! I remember trying this back in my sophomore year of college. I&#8217;d chant mantras (like &#8220;I am beautiful,&#8221; which I definitely didn&#8217;t believe) in the shower. Silently , of course, because it was a community shower room. Showering was always a time for me to scrutinize myself. To go over every inch of my body and find flaws. I thought the mantras would help, and they did for a while. But self-hatred goes a lot deeper than that, and for me, it couldn&#8217;t be undone by reciting a couple sentences over and over alone. It&#8217;s only now, after four years, a lot of struggling, and a lot of therapy, that I&#8217;m able to stand in front of a mirror and actually mean what I say. It&#8217;s a good feeling.

Wake up before 10am


Make yourself a healthy breakfast


Go outside for 20 minutes


Say good morning to someone


[ Rest Day ] Pamper yourself! Make yourself a nice healthy beverage and relax.


Write one positive thing about yourself


Ask someone about their day/week


[ Special ] Make yourself a wellness toolbox. Put inside all the things that make you feel good


Wear something that makes you feel comfortable, rock it!

Talk to someone (about anything!)


[ Rest day ] Pamper yourself! Make yourself a nice healthy beverage and relax.

This scene just took a turn I wasn’t expecting…we are in uncharted waters for sure.

Godspeed, brain.

Rise Against’s “I Don’t Want to Be Here Anymore.”

I DIDN’T KNOW THIS SONG EXISTED. It’s flawless. And it’s perfect for the scene I’m writing. These guys make me giddy. <3 <3 <3
