My Favorite Pieces of Literature

It’s almost Friday–yes I know, this is being posted after Friday–and the taste of the weekend is dancing on the tip of my tongue like this bowl of spaghetti I definitely shouldn’t be consuming. Like that figurative language I used there? I mean, it’s subpar, but what can you expect when you’ve spent the last […]

My Favorite Things

Hello everyone. It’s Monday and I’ll reluctantly admit that I’ve been slacking on the blog. Slacking with a capital “S.” Alas, the show goes on and I’m humbly and stupidly postponing my first day of classes this semester to update here. I’m lacking inspiration, that’s the honest truth, and I have no one to blame […]

Falling 

Falling The feeling when your heart stops and the breath is knocked out from underneath your feet.  Kind of like when your vision gets cloudy and your hands search blindly for something; anything to take away the helplessness your heart seems to be smothered in.

I truly do believe that these things can be wonderful resources for everyone, whether it’s for current events, entertainment, […]

Thank You To My Best Friend

I have never realized, or paid close enough attention to the fact that I have so many wonderful people in my life. My family, they are kind, selfless, giving, and they’d drop everything to be by my side when I need them. But then again…don’t they have to? They are stuck with me, and don’t get […]

Tech Crazed Crazies

A few months ago I went to Starbucks. Now you’re probably wondering why the heck that matters…and on the surface, it doesn’t. However, something happened during that coffee break that I thought of last night. There I was, standing in line. It was a brisk, snowy day, and I was bundled up to my ears […]

My Truth About The F Word

I’m a feminist. I’ve been a woman for a long time now. It’d be stupid not to be on my own side. – Maya Angelou   SPOILER: Not the F word people came here to see. Before we all cover our eyes and run in the opposite direction like we’re being attacked by a rabid animal, […]
