A Day in My Life: Mar. ’14: Bling


You may or may not find this surprising, but as a writer I’ve never been much of a journaler (I like making up words). I’ve always kept writing, sketching, and poetry notebooks, but I’ve never really liked writing about myself. This monthly post is my attempt at rectifying that and is an opportunity for me to get a little personal, as I share a single event from my life.


March 2014 – Bling

There is so much going on, and not going on, in my life right now. I’m in a weird place. I’m struggling to promote a book no one seems to be interested in buying. Everyone just wants me to give it away. I’ve been overlooked and ignored by so many and yet I keep a smile on face and act as though all is well.

In spite of my feelings, I make a point not to hurt others with my sorrow.

I try to be loving and supportive to my family and friends whenever possible- in the end, I always feel better when I’ve done something good for someone else.

My sister and her friend, a new business partner, have started an online jewelry boutique with a unique twist. It’s called, December 10. I recently had the pleasure of going to a party in horror of this endeavor. The food was wonderful, the laughs were plentiful, and the jewelry was economically priced and dazzling. It was a good time!

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords
