some stuff i've written about Write31Days
day 6: particularly in between
Anne of Green Gables once said about how happy she was to live in a world with Octobers, and I respectfully disagree.
day 5: daaaaaamn I gotta write some shit
what’s point of being holy if you’re not going to be happy while you’re at it? Also, why would god make butterflies and puppies and sunrises and nachos if (s)he didn’t care about our happiness?
