June 17, 2021: There's No Place Like D.C.

Updated: Aug 10, 2021

Have to keep it down or I'll definitely give Mom another reason to pick a fight with me. But it is late as hell o'clock, so she should be sleeping. But I wouldn't put it past her to be waiting for me downstairs. So I guess it's back from where I went out. The upstairs back window. Now let's just hope that Mom hasn't put Dad in one of his moods. After all I've been on a killer streak, and I can't afford for it to be ruined on the one night in a long time that I was with KRU. Especially since where we went was D.C. Where being celebrated for being who you are is normal. Where being a part of the LGBTQ+ community isn't something to be ashamed of. Where marijuana is not only decriminalized, but also legal. Where the nearby smell of it doesn't prompt D.C. police to stop and frisk me as I proceed to throw away my trash after eating outside of SakuRamen. Where walking down the streets of Washington, D.C. is more refreshing and fulfilling than whatever the internet has to offer. From the artwork and murals on every street and corner, to the aroma of cultures that invades every inch of my foreign nostrils. Because when I'm in D.C., there's no place like D.C. So please God, if you're real, let me have this one.

For the last month or so I haven’t felt much like myself. Seems like every week the blackouts get much much worse. And although I hate to admit it, I’m honestly starting to get worried. I sometimes wo
