Let's Start Off on the Write Foot
Hello. This is my first time writing a blog, as one could probably tell from this whole production, XD. The blog, I mean. It took me like, way too long to come up with the pun. I'm pretty sure whomever this concerns is only concerned with this because they have nothing better to do than watch the dust accumulate on the bookshelves and wonder who else would clean it up but themselves. I get it. Things have gotten pretty rough the past couple of months, with the whole pandemic issue and the Floyd riots. But then, the Sun rose yesterday, will rise tomorrow, and again the day after that. That's science. And there is not a doubt in the world that it will rise again and cure us from this night, even in the figurative sense. Well, I can't say that there aren't any doubts, and I can't say that I haven't contributed in dry humor nor with earnest worry. But it has to get better. I know that's not really science so much as faith.
Anyway, I think that everyone's probably heard enough about pandemics and protests, and as long as I'm on the topic of things I don't understand, let me introduce myself. I am Ellen, named after my father's mother. Not Ellen DeGeneres, the lady with the Ellen Show. Not Elizabeth, courtesy of two puckish eighth graders I'd befriended (it's a long story). Just Ellen. I am the proud person of five cats, an insane dog, and a bearded dragon still with me in the spiritual sense. The only things I love are my family, friends (not that those two are really separate), and art. I love visual art and I love the written word, hence the reason I am writing at twelve-thirty in the morning... Yep, that's right. Twelve-thirty in the morning. The time stamp is a liar (if there is one). I have no discipline at this point in my life ridden in COVID and riot related memories, and I really need to work on that. So, I will. I look forward to our one-sided conversations in the future.
