Bio

I bought my first plant in 2014 in a bid to improve my work ethic.

As I stare at it now, two years later, I think ‘yes, maybe I could do something with my life’

 

I bought this plant in 2014.

In 2016 it’s much bigger and I’m still waiting on that work ethic.

 

I bought this plant two years ago

When I was 20

I’m 21 now, nearly 22

 

It really does mean a lot to me

 

I bought two other plants late 2015

One is a fern and the other has red leaves and I can’t remember the name

Someone else has the same one

I wonder if theirs has grown

 

The fern looks thirsty but apparently it doesn’t need much water so…

 

I care about my first plant way more than these new ones

 

I just took a break from writing about my plants

 

Is this work?

 

2017 and the fern died a long time ago

My first plant is thriving and I’m much happier

 

Still waiting on the work ethic
