Hello

I’m Sammy! You’ve stumbled across my personal blog Literary Pixie! I’m so happy the internet has connected us together. I have started to think that the internet is actually part of the spiritual network and is doing wonders to bring people together who are meant to meet each other.

I wonder why the internet brought you to my site? Here’s a few guesses:

  1. You don’t shave your legs or armpits, and may have also dyed them pink.
  2. You also love books, especially poetry!
  3. You are a big fan of the Beat Generation.
  4. You or someone you know has been raped, ghosted, or cheated on.
  5. You suffer from anxiety, depression, or both.
  6. You are interested in mental health.
  7. You are also trying to help the refugees.
  8. You heard about my blow job anniversary party.
  9. You like to think of yourself as a feminist, or at least someone trying to make the world a better place.
  10. You met me while going around the planet and have added me on social media, and now – shit, you can see everything I post! Not quite who you thought I was, huh! Well, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Or a human by their appearance. Thought I’d spell it out for yaaaa. You’re welcome!

If it’s anyone of those reasons, then yay! If it’s not, then SURPRISE!

As Virginia Woolf says in A Room of One’s Own, “So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say.”

On my blog, you’ll find all the things I wish to write! I wrote when I was five that, “There were too many words in my head and I just had to put them down.” So basically since I was literate, I’ve loved writing. I kept a daily journal since I was 12. I wrote so many things and never shared them.

Then one day, I was talking to my therapist. She asked me, “do people know you are a writer?”

I cried, “No! No one knows. I’ve only published like 98% of what I have written. No one knows me…”

She said, “Well then, maybe should should start publishing what you’ve written.”

And I said, “Yeah, that’s probably a good idea.”

Boom. A month later and midway through my mental breakdown, I started publishing my first blovel, How to Value Your Own Thoughts. That was a time. Calling it a blovel really helped the perfectionist in me because well, isn’t blovel just the most ridiculous word you’ve ever heard! Just sounds so dumb, it’s hilarious.

I’m still recovering. My life has completely transformed and I will never be the same. I have learned so much about myself, as well as the way the world works. I’ve been sharing bits and bobs about what I’ve been learning here. I hope they support you on your own journey into finding out who you are and what you are meant to do in your life!

I’ve identified my five core values, and thus, they are now the five core values of Literary Pixie. Everything I post / all the decisions I make are centered around these five values. They may change over time, that’s natural, but for now, I’d like to share these with you. I hope they will inspire you to identify what your five core values are, too! It has really helped me in trying to plan my future in my 20s. It’s ridiculous that we’re supposed to have a five or ten year plan and make financial decisions that will shape the rest of our lives in our 20s, but that’s the current state of societal expectations. I’m trying to cope, but, yeahhh – I need support. This blog is a space for reaching out and finding that support, while also trying to support others.

I hope it comes off that way, even though it may look like me just talking about my life and my problems. I like to think of it as sharing, sharing bits of me with you, gifts! And I like to look at your sharing and responses in the same way.

Well lots of love and positive energy! You can read my five core values below, as well as an outdated bio and my contact details.

Yours sincerely,

Sammy


5 Core Values of Literary Pixie

Empathy

Being able to connect with others on a profound level of mutual understanding and concern. Not sympathy, but relating through shared human experiences that transcend time, place, and diversity. 

Loyalty

Giving firm support and remaining committed through dedicated and consistent action. This can be shown both to institutions and people. 

Growth 

The process of continual and infinite learning and development physically, mentally, and spiritually. 

Zeal 

Great energy, passion, and enthusiasm in pursuit of a vision, dream, cause, or objective! 

Uniqueness

I think Hesse says it best, “The very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world’s phenomena intersect, only once in this way and never again!” (Demian aka the book that changed my life)
