You’re probably wondering why there have been cricket sounds emitting from this newsletter.
I've been writing my dissertation proposal, which means I’ve been blurry-eyed, overly caffeinated, and in a perpetual state of typing as I try to meet my self-imposed deadline before the summer’s end.
At least there’s an end in sight for this Psychology Ph.D. and a light at the end of the tunnel.
I also updated my website, because, you know, I’m the worst at focusing on one thing at a time and had to break away from academic writing to do something creative.
Check out my newly updated website here.

Do you want more writing prompts? More reflections on the human condition? Mindfulness? Chaos?
Earlier this year, I participated in the online workshop Poetry in All Forms with the Amber Flame, organized by the amazing people at Community Building Artworks.
The poem A Quatern About Joy by Courtney LeBlanc—Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Riot In Your Throat—was generated from that workshop using the quatern poetic form.
