to do:

August 20, 2021

i. set aside time for yourself:
in a day where you go from school
to class to homework to play to eat to study again
in this endless cycle of working towards the future
let yourself slow down--
let your brain just stop for a while
take a book, a cup of boba tea
sit in the garden, enjoy what matters
ii. set aside time for others:
show your friends that they deserve love
and show them that you love them
give him a call, leave her a text
remind them now and again
that they matter
iii. never stop writing:
Don’t stop penning down your thoughts
because no matter how old you become
your thoughts matter
iv. be grateful:
for every breath you get to take

    This is so cool, and I definitely feel like I should follow these. The last one was my favourite. It was so simple and pretty that if felt like a breath in itself

    what a beautiful to-do list. i've never loved a to-do list more. also, that quote by Victoria Erickson in your message board is incredible. this reminds me of the checklist for being human in "Every Word You Cannot Say" by Ian S Thomas.
    congrats—you deserve this recognition!

    Re: No, I think I agree. And I was remembering a FF video/tutorial thing I'd watched at first to get an idea of how to better handle the genre, and one of the tips was to put a lot of meaning in the title, so I think a longer one is good. The piece was a lot different, and I'd just kept the old title, though a fresher one will be nice. Thank you again!!

    Re: Oooh, thank you thank you thank you. You're seriously saving my butt here. I really love those ideas. DO you have thoughts of an traitors/echoes thing vs The Smell of the Air?
