For once, I didn’t miss someone who I used to think of every day. Perhaps it was because I was the one in control. I had to break a heart in order to protect my own. Too many times had I given it away to those who mishandled it and allowed it to fall to […]

I remember how I used to always look for love. Any time I went to the mall with friends or with family, I’d wonder if I’d meet the one. I would be excited for school and would spend the first day looking around the class to see who I miiiight develop a crush on. It […]

Mentions of religion below. In my mind, the plan seems so perfect. Maybe God has another, more perfect plan, or maybe, just maybe, He is guiding the plan that runs through my mind. Only time will tell. I remember how he wanted to join the Air Force. Even his eyes reflected the clear blue sky, […]

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. I honestly hate to admit it, but just a week ago, as I peered at her from over the little flames atop her birthday cake, I knew […]

(All screenshots of messages are recreations of actual messages) I think I can speak for most girls out there when I say that when a best friend texts you “Gurrrrrl,” you drop everything to see what’s up.

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 […]

Typically, most of us don’t remember our Wal-Mart endeavors, especially from two years ago, but I will never forget a particular shopping trip in May of 2017. With a prideful skip in my step, my hair billowed in the breeze blowing from the powerful AC Units above the entrance, greeting me like the movie star […]
