I know that I handle stressful times in my life by being hyper-controlling about my schedule and my other responsibilities, as if accomplishing some tasks with zeal will make me forget about the big, looming problem that is completely out of my control.
My devotions have consisted of me just writing and crying, crying and writing. Tuesday I wrote in my prayer journal, “Where are you?!!!” I felt like God was just deserting me in this difficult time of my life.
I know I have been away for a long time! But I have a really good excuse! I have a draft in which I explain everything in writing, but then I thought, “Oh wait, I’m an illustrator! I can draw my story!” So I created these incredibly awkward drawings on my Mom’s iPad. It’s kind of a long story…
“There’s no time, just drive!” So we drive fast and crazy, me, my brother, and my nameless, blue-haired friend, until we run out of gas and need to stop at a gas station.
When given the choice, I almost always choose sleep (I don’t just love my bed, we are in a committed relationship)…
I like all the things. I want to be a chef, a fashionista, an illustrator, a writer, an Elizabeth Bennet, and a book critic.
