Spelling bee candidates not allowed definition 

Everything is uncertain. I’m starting to wonder if my fight is for nothing. Here, but not wanted. I’ve always embraced changed. I’ve always allowed for things to be taken from me. I’ve allowed myself the luxury of giving up. At least I tried, right? My capacity to tolerate an impermanence of happiness is shrinking by…

Baths are underrated 

I can hear each breath exit my mouth. The sound of water droplets from the faucet smacking the surface of the water both annoys and relaxes me at the same time. Warmth envelops every part of me, and I can feel my face turn red. I’m the type of crazy person who writes this over…

Once upon a time…

There was a girl who believed in everyone & everything so deeply. She believed mistakes were worth making. She made them without hesitation in an attempt to learn because her experience taught her that struggling was normal. She forgave without a need for apologies. She loved to no end. A part of her though was…

Why I made the decision to delete all of my social media

Instant gratification drives our entire generation. Even the best people are obsessed with themselves. No one ever appreciates what they have because they think that it could always be better. And by the looks of instagram it could. Even if you pride yourself on the level of depth you aspire to; you’re lying to yourself….

Don’t throw Steve away just yet

Yesterday, I didn’t cry. I can’t be sad or upset; you didn’t throw away our connection. We just need boundaries to build a real foundation. One based on friendship. It’s nice to know I won’t lose my friend, and even better to know you’re not sticking around for just the sex.  Don’t take away my…

Density means nothing 

Lost, and alone, I’ll just stare at my phone until my mixed up brain can make some sense of all of this. As emotional as I am, deep down I understand. I guess the truth just always comes out. I’m overly dramatic at times; I need a fantasy to get through life. Day by day…

Motivation @ Midnight

(Click the “#motivationalmidnight” link at the end of this post to watch an awesome Ted Talk from Eduardo Briceno) With this new blog I aim to get to know myself better as a writer, and as a woman. I’ll write about whatever pops in my head here, and update my current events section once every…

Learning to learn on my own terms

  Do you ever think about how much information is really out there? Or should I say here alone? As in the “world wide web.” I use a device not much bigger than my palm everyday. I use it to connect with others directly or indirectly through alike interests. I use it to determine what…

Box of Chocolates

Life. It’s what we’re all here for. Mandatory inexcusable jury duty. A work meeting you don’t get paid for. Your Amazon shopping cart insuring that credit card bills constant place in your mind. That trip you still haven’t taken. Probably because of that Amazon shopping cart as well. The time you wish you spent with…
