Mikee likes to refer to herself in the third person sometimes.
This online journal is a collection of stories from the classroom, the corporate office and everywhere in between.
Even if it’s a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change. And that infinitesimal change ripples outward –ever forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter –maybe less than a lot, but always more than none.
–An Abundance of Katherines, John Green
It is crucial for her to find Anne through her stories, for Anne is the adult who knows the difference between right and wrong and acts after deciding carefully without letting her soft side take over. Mikee is controlled by her child self who is deeply fascinated with all things bright and beautiful. Her parent self, contemplates her actions and guides her with virtues close to home. And if you don’t know what the metaphor means, think id, ego, superego –
concepts from Psychology, a science she seeks to spend her lifetime studying.
She leaves it to your better judgment to decide if her thoughts are worth sharing and if Anne is worth finding.
She knew that I was about to leave [for my teaching class] so she jumped in her fence filled with freshly ripped newspaper and gave me this look.
Can’t you stay a little while longer?
Can we stay where you and I somewhat (sort of) exist? Can this last? Will it ever be?
I am currently obsessed with make-up and skin care! Since my job requires that I put on a face (lol), I’ve been stocking up on items that will help keep me fresh all day. A lot of what I have are lipsticks, because that’s one of two things that people usually see (the other is eyebrows!). I am not a fan of putting a lot of products on my face, but since make-up still traps oil and dirt, it is also important to invest on products that will leave your skin clean and healthy at the end of each work day. I feel like I’ve completely turned around because I used to not care about these things, even (silently) shaming people who don’t embody natural beauty. But now I see that it doesn’t hurt to try and be prettier as long as you don’t overdo it. :)
In light of recent events that caused all forms of heartbreak, frustration and disappointment in my nation, allow me to talk about something p(r)etty.
