It was a Monday morning and my mental health was already getting the best of me. I was literally curled in a blanket on my beanbag crying over a good weekend that turned bad, and I was now allowing it to trickle into my week. What frustrated me the most was that I was so determined to have a good day and start it off right. I really wanted to make pancakes that morning but somehow ended up with no appetite and zero motivation.

Welcome to a new series to my blog: Author Aesthetic. If you’re subscribed to my newsletter, you’ll know I’ve been recently intrigued by the Brontë sisters — more specifically, Emily.
