Hi. Remember me? I’m the girl who used to write on this blog consistantly. I’m the girl who used to be here, making you laugh. Well, I know I’ve been avoiding you all lately. I’ve been avoiding this whole thing, actually.
Just know, it’s not you. It’s me.
It sounds so cliche, but it’s true. I’ve been going through it and I figured if I didn’t come on here, I wouldn’t have to talk about it. Probably why I’ve been so stuck like chuck when it came down to the nitty gritty. But, now that the ordeal is over, I think I’m ok to talk about it. I’ve gotta let it off my chest to start letting these creative juices come back to me.
My name is Rachel Tan, and I am a cancer survivor.
Chemotherapy, radiation, medication and lots of sleep have had me feeling less than myself, but more of the person I want to become. The people in my life have been nothing short of amazing and this thing called cancer is SO SOOOOO STUPID. But it’s gone. And I’m back. Or at least trying to be.
So cheers to the freakin’ weekend, I’ll drink to that. Let the Jameson sink in, I’ll drink to that! This weekend, I’ll be celebrating love, friendship, and most especially LIFE! Partake.
