Verona’s Summer Hath Not Such A Flower. | August 2019
Did you hear that? That huge sigh of relief? Oh nothing, it’s just me finally seeing the light at the end of this Summer of Hell tunnel. If you read last month’s column, you know June wasn’t all that cute for ya girl. I wish I could say July was a little better, BUT ALAS DEAR READER, ’twas not. Womp, womp.
But that’s not what this column is about. This month, I’ve decided to flex some of those designer/actor/creator/…gulp… artist skills you’ve been hearing me blab about for the past six months.

But at the same time, it’s the easiest to digest…word vomit, ya know? A lot can happen in a year. I always knew my time in San Diego was limited. I went into the opportunity full force, as if I was going to be there for a lifetime…because going all in meant breaking barriers and pushing myself to live in the present.

Summer Is Cancelled | August 2019
You guys, it’s hot. I know – am I really going to write an entire piece about the weather? You bet your bottom I am. Because all I can think about is that it is hot. Like, your upper lip lost three pounds of water weight hot. I realize that the majority of ELEANORA Magazine’s readership is in Texas, so telling you all that it’s hot is a bit whiny. It’s like when you hear a child crying and you’re like, why are you sad, you don’t have bills.
