Questions

Q1-Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because my sister did, well kind of. I guess I got the idea off of her but the real reason is because of Cystic Fibrosis (Cf). I needed an outlet where I could talk about it and give others advice, where I could spread awareness and also my art.

Q2-What is your favorite thing to post about?

I love writing about Cf stuff, whenever I see other bloggers who have Cf it makes me feel like I’m not alone in this fight. I like giving advice, talking about my own experiences and story’s. Whenever I’m in the hospital I write and draw, it helps keep me sane 😀

Q3-Favorite movie?

Ready Player One. I’ve never read the book but I want to, the movie is great and the graphics are amazing.

Q4-Favorite song and why?

My favorite song is High Hope by Panic! At The Disco. I like how its upbeat.

Q5-Favorite holiday?

Christmas

Q6-What most inspires you to keep blogging?

What inspires me to keep blogging is myself. It’s a way for me to express my self in art and writing. 

Q7-If you could invite one person to dinner, dead or alive, real or fiction, who would it be and why?

I would invite my great grandma, she died sometime after I was born but my mom said she loved me and my sister, it’d be cool to meet her. 

Q8-What’s your greatest passion?

Art

Q9-What is your favorite genre of book?

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

DSC_0345

Yesterday I was happy. A little girl that was innocent, with the whole world on her shoulders. A ray of sunshine. Not a care in the world. Full of energy and joy. She loved to play. Letting her imagination run free. Playing with friends and climbing on monkey bars and trees, doing cartwheels all over. Going to school and loving life. Jumping in chalked squares and jump ropes. Riding her bike and feeling free. Feeling the wind in her hair and the adrenaline in her veins. Not caring what others think or others opinions.

Today I am struggling. Not innocent anymore. Having my whole life stresses on my shoulders. No energy and not normal. Definitely not normal. The hospital is my second home. Depression, Anxiety, Stress. Panic attacks weekly. Reality slowly replacing the happy girl I once was. Seeping into all the cracks. Today I experience the reality of my disease. Creeping up to me when I least accept it. Having bad days more than good. Instead of loving being around people I like being alone. Finding comfort at night. The stars shinning just like I once was. Letting my thoughts run free, even though I feel trapped in them. Loneliness and guilt comes and goes. Writing my feeling out. Painting them away. Blocking them out in music. Feeling as though the only ones who truly understand are online.

Tomorrow I accomplish my dreams. Travel around the world. Sell my art. Spread awareness. Pursuing my dream job and loving life. Although I still have bad days I am more positive. Although I still struggle I have lots of support. I do crazy stuff. Go cliff diving, maybe skydiving or get a tattoo. Living my life to the fullest. Falling in love or filling my house with pets and art. Going to London, Italy, New Zealand, France. Learning about different cultures and art.
