I was about to cop out of this post by listing a brief update in bullet point format, but then I thought about how my future self probably wouldn't appreciate a little more detail when I'm looking back at this post month/years from now, so here I am typing everything out. Actually, I thought I'd go back and read more of my posts more often, but I hardly ever do. I think I get annoyed by the sound of my own voice - my writing voice. It sound all fine and dandy when I'm forming sentences, like right now, but then I'll go back and read it and be like, um no. Which is kinda sad, because ultimately I come to this space to write for me, and even though I love sharing my thoughts with any and everyone who's interested enough to read them, at the end of the day, I'm just a chick who's trynna write in this here safe space, and add a few photos to go along with the story so I can come back and be like "oh yeah, I remember that day."

But, back to the update. This past week I learned that bunless turkey burgers are not satisfying, no matter how many toppings I add, but saurkraut and chipotle mayo do hit the spot. Also, the Atlanta skyline is actually pretty dope, and out of the 20 pictures I take of said skyline, there will only be one good shot, and it might not even be a shot of the whole skyline. Also, there are white wines out there that actually taste good (Barefoot Crisp White). Also, I should never use my debit card at a redbox, because they might charge you for movies you didn't actually receive from an out-of-order kiosk. Credit cards only from now on, since it's easier to dispute a transaction when it wasn't actually withdrawn from your checking account.

    I absolutely love Atlanta's skyline. That's really the only thing that draws me in every single time. And it's rare that it ever looks on pictures the way i see it with my eyes.

    I like your writing voice. It sounds genuinely human and familiar, and that is refreshing in this world of self-proclaimed celebrities. = )

    1. Thank, Chymere. Sometimes I really sit back and think "I can't believe anybody reads this," lol. But I always come back and write some more - I can't help it!

    I can honestly when I truly done with this city the skyline would be one of the few things that I will miss...... and me I mean one of the few.

    I gotta make another trip back to the Food Truck Park, I went last time but didn't get a chance to try anything.

    1. How on earth did you get out of there without trying something. The aroma wafting through the area makes me want to try EVERYTHING. Ibiza Bites & Happy Belly are my favorites so far.

  3. I feel the same way about my writing voice. There are moments when I want to just write like how I talk (with more slang and profanity) but then there are moment when I wish I had more of a vocabulary to pull from when I'm feeling poetic but lacking the words to express myself. So then I revert to my usual "in between" voice for writing posts everyday and I feel like I sound monotonous. And the cycle continues lol. Also, I've never seen the Atlanta skyline before. Is there a tall building you can go to to get a bird's eye view of the city?

    1. Yes! The sundial... I haven't been in a few years, and I'm sure the pictures I took when I went are lost on an old hard drive. I might have to fish them out, though.
