time for an update on the awkward bird

Hello my favorite BFF's! Welcome to my new BFF's and it's good to see my old BFF's. I figured it would be a good time to update you on what is happening with "The Awkward Bird", especially if you know that we've moved, which was supposed to bring me closer to my bubble map of dreams. While we were preparing to move, I read something that compared big scary moments in life to diving off a cliff. That is exactly what it felt like to me. We had been brought to the edge of the cliff and were about ready

more bon-bons please

Hello. Is it me you're looking for? I've been thinking about you all summer and wondering what kind of summer fun you were up to. My hot summer weather started late but it has lasted a long time. It has been a super hot and rainy season and the trees and grass are still very green, not fall-like at all.

i love inventory

That's right. I love inventory. There. I've said it and I feel free.
