30 Day Challenge – Day 17

Day 17 – Highs and Lows of the past year

Low – My ex was starting to be distant for no reason. I suspected that she was interested in someone else, but she denied it and said it was work. Put a pin in that.

Low – I was getting evicted for using a hot plate to cook my food. I never got the lease, but apparently it was in there.

Low – I wasn’t going to graduate because I didn’t have enough done to do so.

Low – Could barely afford to pay rent because my work permit expired. My ex paid the full rent and said not to worry about paying her back. Put a pin in that.

Low – Pin 1. Found out my ex was cheating on me from a mutual friend. I went dark that night. I was at the carnival village (it’s like Coney Island) and after I heard the news, I couldn’t stop drinking and laughing. I broke in the bad way. Pin 2. She wanted the money for rent back after it was all over. She isn’t getting a dime.

High – I had a great time at carnival. The best ever. I spent every day with one of my brothers, Khallid. We had a blast. 

High – I got job offers back to back. I had to turn down people to get the job that I have now and another one that was a pilot study.

High – I got over my ex. Completely. Yea, I don’t like what she did, but I have gotten past it. It’s like ever since she left, only good has happened so far. She was what was keeping me back.

High – I fell in love with me. I left people alone and stuck to myself. I started reading to get sway from life. I started watching new shows to keep me busy.

High – Started back up an old friendship. I was spiraling out of control and she saved me. Everything started with a show we both liked at the time. Didn’t know what was coming next.

High – We became an item. I’ve never been so happy and content in my life. I love her.

High – I’m moving away with her to hopefully better opportunities and a better life.

You can’t have lows without highs. Life balances itself out eventually. This too shall pass.

High on Love

Each night she would inhale his love

Her eyes would close and she’d drift away

There isn’t just one place that she stays

She flies over the moon

Goes to distant galaxies

Off of this interstellar high

When she comes down

He catches her in his arms

He was on the same high with her

Opting to land first with arms wide open

You can see it in his eyes

That he wants another hit

Another fix

Another taste of her high

They’re both addicted to one another

No intervention will come between them
