#NYCPride March 2016 exclusive pics

My cousin is one of the managers of the parade this year! She and the rest of the managers were conversing with the NYPD and getting everything in formation.  I hope everyone there has a fun and safe time.  It's going to be the most important march to date!

A Room of One's Own

I haven't been keeping up with my paper journal.  I have done some writing the past year but I wound up losing most of my work since it was on my old laptop that crapped out.  I have most of it backed up, but since then I haven't worked on it at all.   I haven't done much writing of any significance in 2016.  I've been reading a lot and hanging out on twitch and laying low.

Right now I'm reading the diaries of Virginia Woolf.  I am realizing that we have a few things in common, our battle with mental illness being the main one.  I don't have suicidal tendencies, but we both have had nervous breakdowns due to the trauma we have endured in our lives.  Considering what mental health services were like during World War I and just the little information on mental illness in general, let alone in women, added with her having been a child in the Victorian period, I'm sure she had it much worse than I.

I suppose in this house it is very hard to feel like I really have a room of my own if I am to write.  I am rarely alone even when I am in my own room.  That is one of the hardest things to deal with from day to day.

There are days when it gets bad.  Then worse.

I feel these days like I did when I was in the hospital.  Instead of walls that keep me from taking a breath of fresh air whenever I want, I have walls that keep me from doing the most menial tasks.  They feel like Herculean efforts.  It makes me look as though I don't care.  It makes me look lazy.  Ungrateful for what I have.

There are days when getting out of bed feels like I will fall off the edge of the Earth of I take one step off.

The only true respite I receive is through medication.  To calm me within the hour.  To lessen the burden.

To turn the world I see into a lighter shade of grey.

The Maze Runner

Anyone read this?  I watched the first two movies and I've gotten the audiobook to The Kill Order ( I think is the name) and I was wondering if there was anybody who has read them so we could chat.  I saw an episode of "Superstore" where America Ferrera's daughter was reading it and suddenly was interested for some reason.  I guess I'm feeling a gap in my life because there's no more Hunger Games movies coming out and the last Divergent movie will be out, so I need some new dystopian fiction.
