This week has been a busy one for your Maryland poet. Firstly, I’ve been published on SpillWords for a THIRD time. My poem “Where I’m At”, takes a look at what I’ve gone through lately and why I am the person I am today.
Here’s an excerpt, and you can read the rest here (http://spillwords.com/where-im-at/)
I hate exercise
because no girl wants me anyway
so what’s the point in losing weight
I eat too much
because I love and hate…
Secondly, I was nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award, this time my fellow spectrumite in Marisa Ulrich. She’s a regular on my blog, and I’m grateful for her contributions, as well as her own outlook from an autistic life(https://brokencookiessite.wordpress.com/2016/12/19/they-gave-me-a-mystery-blogger-award/).
So, what is the Mystery Blogger Award?
The “Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion. Created by Okoto Enigma.

So, three things about me? For one, I love cats. They are the sweetest animals, and they provide a TON of entertainment. I live with two, and there’s nothing like getting licked on the face to start the day. They also steal your food, if you let them. Secondly, Fall Out Boy is my favorite band. “Immortals” was the very first song I listened to of theirs, and ever since I’ve been hooked. “Infinity On High” is my favorite album, and while I listen to This Ain’t A Scene the most, I can’t decide between Dance, Dance/Tell That Mick He Just Made My List Of Things To Do Today/Disloyal Order Of Water Buffaloes/Grand Theft Autumn as my favorite. Patrick Stump has grown a lot on me. I’m not a big fan of his voice early on, but he’s improved in recent albums.
I’m nominating https://myrandomrantings.com/ for this award. Her poetry is outstanding, and I really enjoy the hope that emanates from her words. I hope you’d check her out.
Here’s the link to my best post (in my opinion), one of my older posts. It didn’t get a lot of likes then, but…https://marylandpoetblog.wordpress.com/2016/09/06/the-mess-of-it-all-a-poem-of-loving-remembrance/
