Miles-a-Minute Challenge #40: Seasons of Life

Here is my challenge answer for today's Miles-a-Minute video, "Seasons."

Discuss/Describe, using the seasonal climate as a metaphor (spring, summer, fall, winter), what season you are in right now.

I'd say I am in fall. My life seems dry and cold, without much to hope for. Sure, my troubles are nothing compared to what some people in the world are going through. But at the moment, my life seems stagnant; basically, it kinda sucks. I have a job I don't like, which has great benefits but which doesn't pay much. I'm living with my parents instead of having a place of my own. I don't have a driver's license or a car.  I'm not dating, nor do I really have any prospects of dating anyone. I want to travel really bad but I can't afford it.

Hopefully a spring or summer time is coming soon for me! But I guess maybe I need to make it happen.

Like that song "Almost There" from The Princess and the Frog:

And I'm almost there, I'm almost there!
People down here think I'm crazy, but I don't care
Trials and tribulations I've had my share
There ain't nothing gonna stop me now cause I'm almost there

I remember Daddy told me : "Fairytales can come true
But you gotta make 'em happen, it all depends on you"
So I work real hard each and every day
Now things for sure are going my way

Cause even Tiana became a princess in the end! "Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a very powerful thing," as Mary Margaret from Once Upon a Time would say.
