im so so tired and cold and i work until 11 pm again and im SICK and MISERABLE
if video games arent art then explain this
oh my god its back. the light of my life has returned
I’m a writer and performance poet from Baltimore City, MD and a professional ding dong. I’ve been writing for the past seven years and performing for the past three, and with that in mind I decided it would be a great idea to just set the bar high and register for the Individual World Poetry Slam this year. Only thing is, it’s in Phoenix. Which is essentially across the country.
That’s the tricky part of it all. Now I wouldn’t register for IWPS if I thought I would solely need the help of a campaign to get me there. This is achievable on my own, but with serious budget constraints that are probably not the healthiest of options. Right now I work 35-40 hours a week, on top of biking too and from work. I don’t have a consistent work schedule and therefor fluctuate from mornings to evenings and back to mornings again, giving me a very inconsistent sleep schedule. It also doesn’t help that this summer has had a heavy mix of good and bad. June brought my house two robberies, but June and July had me open for musicians I greatly admire and get my name out into the City a bit more than it has been.
Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, and I’m asking for help with this not just because it’s something I “really really want,” but because the experiences I have to gain from attending IWPS this year are infinite and will help me grow as a poet, performer, and human. Any help I receive now I’ll be sure to always keep in mind and be thankful for. We help people not because of the perks, but because it feels good to help people achieve things. I know after all this is done, I’m going to be helping out tenfold to those around me (not that I wouldn’t regardless).
Go read this. It’s really important.
Be kind to one another.
