However, if this kind of content makes you significantly uncomfortable, you may not want to read this.

There’s a pretty famous saying that goes along the lines of “you can’t love someone until you love yourself”. I stand strongly by this quote, which is why my first ever post will be about the most important dates you can have: the dates with yourself. I often tell those I care about that they […]

My Journey, Pt. 3.1

For a week, we tried to make it work as friends. I did my best to remain hopeful, convincing myself, “Maybe we can form the ideal companionship.” Being the weeb I was, I pictured us side by side, him with a sword, me with a bow and arrow, warding off a fearsome dragon. It was […]

(All screenshots of messages are recreations of actual messages) There are few birthdays more special than an 18th birthday, and few people more special than my sister, Amy.

Once upon a time, A boy gave me a rose. Its bright petals told me that he believed I could bloom, Its thorns told me that he could never be mine. I would always lie, “That is okay,” Yet I clutched his flower close to my heart, As I watched him walk away. “I love […]

High school is a time of transition. Most people in high school are trying to figure out what they want to do when they’re older and the type of career they want to pursue. Until two months ago, I thought I discovered my calling quite early. I loved working with computers, so I wanted to […]
