Frugally Luxurious

I've never been wealthy. I've always teetered on the edges of Lower-Middle class and Upper-Poverty. Growing up, I watched my mother and grandmother use coupons and discount sales to find items we needed or wanted. I don't remember growing up ever feeling any major effects of being lower on the economic scale, but I think... Continue Reading →

Dreams of Purple

For weeks we have heard about the pleading remarks to "Go Vote, your voice counts." Tonight we hear whose voice was the loudest. And I'm scared. I'm scared that people are going to continue being angry. I'm scared they are going to attack the people who didn't vote because their choice didn't win. I'm scared... Continue Reading →

What Happens to the Lone Wolf?

I've never been diagnosed with depression, but i sometimes get depressed. I often feel lonely and unneeded (or unwanted) in crowds. There is no reason for me to feel this way. I'm aware of that knowledge in my head. I'm aware of how I can reach out to anyone in my phone and try to... Continue Reading →

I Promise, I am Going to Piss You Off

I’m not good with words. Restatement: I’m not good with spoken, impromptu words. I am better with words written down, thought over, and edited into the best form of themselves. Not a text, nor a tweet, yet not a novel, but actual words that come from a place where their meaning is so wrapped around... Continue Reading →

In the Depth of Loss

Since my grandmother passed away, I have suffered from so much feelings of great loss. But I have also dealt with this overwhelming feeling that I have nowhere that I belong. Over these past several week, I have spent both time alone, and time surrounded by so many family members, you cannot help but feel... Continue Reading →

A Freelancer’s Isolation

I'm a workaholic. Or quickly becoming one. Being a freelancer can change the way your brain works, where you are always slightly hustling. I've hopefully managed to not always talk about my job, or constantly promote myself around people. Which can be a hard thing to do when one of the first questions you get asked by...

Who Sees You for Your Soul

Spending a year looking at different relationships.

Like a Rose among the Thorns

Over the past few months, I’ve been tasked with reexamining what it is to be in different types of relationships. I’ve always observe how we interact, who it is we become attached to, and why some go by the way side, while others we will fight tooth and nail to keep the relationship going.

I’ve always been a loner. Not that I haven’t had people around me, I’ve just always been guarded as to keep from getting hurt. I found that by not letting people in, and only allowing them to see the softer sides, then I would be fine and make it through. As time moved forward I found that there’s a longing for something real, something deeper. Growing up I was always fascinated with the relationship between Cory Matthews and Shawn Hunter on Boy Meets World. I found it intriguing to see two people so intertwined into each…

Miles to Go Before I Sleep

I'm in the process of several things right now. I'm currently working on 2 different blog posts, very similar in tone, but also very personal. They take time to work out. I've been piecing them both together for several weeks now, when the emotions are right, and the words flow more easily. So hopefully those... Continue Reading →

Learning to Set Aside Wild Fear

I always wanted to stand out. Be extraordinary. Be outside the boxes of our culture. To not be boxed in, or bound by labels or ideas. I wanted to change the way the world viewed things, and not be afraid of the consequences. I wanted to help people see things that they may not have... Continue Reading →
