a small piece snipped off; a small bit, scrap, or fragment: an anthology of snippets.
I have been writing. I have. It’s all been coming to me in tiny snippets. Whatever it is, I’m not sure I’ll ever know. I’ve been more hesitant than usual to share, and I’m not sure I know why that is either.
I’ve been searching the internet for ways to hide my awkward hair. I spent two hours trimming a scarf last Saturday. It felt absurd. Also, I bought a new swim suit. Even though the very hope of vacation is months away. Even though I’ll only get the chance to wear it probably four whole times this entire summer….I bought a new swim suit. Because people need things to look forward to. They just do.
I’ve been comparing myself to other people. Because, regardless of the self-destructing nature of this habit, it’s one of the only things that has ever come naturally to me. You might be thinking, Just because something comes naturally doesn’t necessarily make it a good thing. For example, obesity comes completely naturally, but leads to heart disease and other less-than-desirables.
