A Life of Imperfections

She inhaled deeply. Deep breathing is suppose to relax you, right? Who really knows, her mind was still racing as she exhaled strongly. Should she eat? Maybe study some more, she can never study too much; but she was fairly tired. She also needed to shower; but it was time to get dressed. If she…

Time Wrap

Nothing is taken for granted more than time. It’s wished to go by faster, it’s wished to be rewound, to be paused, and to be deleted. Time is one of the most valuable aspect of life and it is always wished to be tampered with. Stress is endured when one thinks about the future and…

Dear Friend:

Happy Birthday to you It breaks my heart, that you couldn’t see past twenty two I know your love shines down from the moon; the stars too Happy Birthday dear Nett All the memories The laughs The support The love And your smile, I will never forget Happy Birthday to you    

Music: The Safe Kind Of High

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.” -Plato It all started with one band. One song. One show. It’s nearly impossible to put into words how music changes me. The atmosphere of a live…

If You Can’t Convince Them, Confuse Them

Months ago I was constantly apologizing or explaining myself and my actions, I can’t even tell you what put me in such a small mindset that made me think, I HAD to do this. This world is fighting so hard for such beautiful issues like animal rights, love, gender, and race equality. All of these…

Dear Little Brother

Dear little brother, I love you; is the first thing I want you to always know. Also know, there is never a day gone by that I don’t think about you or anyone else in our family really. Everything I do, I think of how it affects me and I think about it affecting you…

I See Dead People

Believing in the after life is an argument in itself, but for times sake I’ll make it known that it is something I believe in. For the record, the last thing I plan on doing is pushing my faith in someone else’s face. Everyone has their own view on the world and that uniqueness is…

Are You Afraid of the Dark?

That’s the way the cookie crumbles. That phrase, to me, is absolutely the worst. Not only has an action I attempted failed or I come across an undesired result, I also don’t have a cookie. I always try to remember how many fully intacted cookies I have rather than the old, hard, crumbling ones. But…

Sex, Drugs, and Rock n’ Roll

There is a reason why music is constantly evolving, why it’s in such high demand, and why people can make successful careers off of it. There isn’t rational reasoning to many things in life but I can say with certainty there is reasons for music. Music, lyrics, guitar riffs, harmonica solos, they all at some…

No Offense me, but What Are You Doing?

So, I was laying down on the floor of my bedroom looking at my ceiling. Singing along to the music that was rolling so smoothly off my vintage Toto vinyl. By “vintage” vinyl, I mean the vinyl that I stole from my mama and papa’s house (thanks guys). Anyways, as I am looking very much…

Ode to Big Sister

It started in 1992, then 1994 gave off some life, and finally 2000¬†brought it all together. Before 2000 it was just me and my big sister against the world, at least that’s what it felt like for two young girls. I had her there to play with Polly pockets and Bratz dolls. We watched Barney…

What am I Fighting For?

Back in the day (two months ago) I involved myself in this very interesting act of kindness and weirdness called GISHWHES. For those who don’t know that stands for “Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen”. GISHWHES pushes you to dive head first out of your comfort zone. I, for one, am extremely…
