For this month I actually managed to put together an “editorial calendar” and wrote down stuff I wanted to blog about. But then my life had other plans. On the 4th of July just after sending my momma a bd text I sat down in the park to read for a bit before I had to work (picking up kids, I’m a nanny). I was going to write a post that day, about my mother, and how she is such an inspiration to me. As I was reading my book I noticed this man, who sat down a couple benches from me starring. I probably sat there for 40ish minutes before I was to leave, and he starred and watched me the whole time. I knew he was watching me, I could feel it on my skin. I had to walk past him when it was time to go, and thats when he started talking. Vile things really, and when I didn’t stop or looked at him he tried to grab my arm. So I ran.
I ran out of the park onto a busy road and called my boyfriend shaking because I never been that scared. Ever.
I really thought I was tougher than this, that in a situation like this I’d fight back or something but all I could do was run. I was so shaken up I had goosebumps on my arms and legs.
I obviously called the police, and they were honestly amazing, an officer came out to talk to me a couple days after. I wanted to report it so if anything weird happens there again, they have another case.
I’m not sure I can go back to the park and sit and read there anytime soon again.
I just wanted this post to explain the absence and why I’m super behind on everything and will be uploading posts slowly.
