The Messy Art of Balance

I like to think that humans are becoming more like robots everyday. Imagine, most of us have a routine of waking up, eating, getting kids ready (if you have any), working, eating  (again) and sleeping (maybe). It’s the same thing every day. Clock in and clock out. It gets redundant. Some people work so hardContinue reading “The Messy Art of Balance”

Reflection

I’ve been reflecting a lot this week. I’ve been looking back on all the mistakes I’ve made and people I’ve met. It’s left me in a confused state of mind. Not many people know that that’s how I’ve been feeling. I’ve been feeling sad and empty. It’s quite complicated to describe really. It’s been thisContinue reading “Reflection”

Pisces

I don’t know how to express it The attraction I feel from the moon The pull she has over me The way her light washes over me Calming me I feel at peace in her presence   I don’t know how to express it The attraction I feel from water The pull she has overContinue reading “Pisces”

Fear & Courage

She stops me in my tracks. My blood freezes and my heart stops. I lose control over my body and fear takes over my nervous system. My bones are paralyzed, my dreams stay locked in my head and opportunities fade away. Her name is fear and she is my ying. She whispers in my earContinue reading “Fear & Courage”

Period.

So whose idea was it to give females periods? Because let me take a second to complain about Eve. SO you’re gonna tell me that because Eve ate a dam apple the WHOLE ENTIRE female gender has to be punished?! YOU’RE telling me GOD decided to punish us ALL because of HER mistake?! I’m sorryContinue reading “Period.”

Limbo

I have seen to find myself in limbo…again I always seem to trail back to this corner of my mind. A small cave where I’m lost. Stuck. Confused. I sit here and ponder. Who am I? What do I do next? Should I? Should I not? The walls are filled with questions and visions. SoContinue reading “Limbo”

Creative Writing vs Journalism

Over a year ago I had to write a short paper on Journalism v. Creative Writing. I just about died at the thought of writing it. Here we have a paper where I have to write about my two worlds colliding. I loved creative writing ever since elementary school. But the amount of narrative essaysContinue reading “Creative Writing vs Journalism”

The Rise of Youth

When my mother was 12 years old she had to stop going to school. She had learned the basics of reading, writing and math more or less. But she had to stop her education because she had to help her family work on the farm. You heard me, a farm. She grew up in aContinue reading “The Rise of Youth”

2018 Fall Fashion Is Here!

Fall is officially here! So order all the pumpkin spice lattes as you can. Personally I’m not a big fan but drink to your heart’s content. I am very excited for this season, mainly because it’s finally fall. As much as I love fall I hate it. Mainly because where I live it’s summer allContinue reading “2018 Fall Fashion Is Here!”

Two Sides

I am 2 out of 1. I have two sides. One always hides.   1 ethnicity. 2 nationalities. Separated by a giant sea.   A foreigner in one. A misfit in the other. Where are my sisters and brothers?   My tongue is tied in confusion. Afraid to speak and make a mistake. I stayContinue reading “Two Sides”
