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”

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 Pythagorean Theorem of Your 20s

I hate being in my 20s. I do. I really, really, really do. Your 20s are all about figuring out who you are, what you’re meant to do, where you’re meant to be, who’s going to be there for you and it freaking sucks. Because here’s the thing; you have this idea about how youContinue reading “The Pythagorean Theorem of Your 20s”

Happiness

Happiness comes in all shapes and forms It’s something we’re all tirelessly searching for. We search for it so much we blind ourselves to how it even looks. We think that to find happiness we need a special map to uncover its complexity when in fact it’s quite simple. Most people think you can onlyContinue reading “Happiness”

Breathe

Breathe. The smell of roasted beans consumes her sense of smell. Her body shivers slightly by the breeze of the A/C as she walks in. The door chimes and she is greeted by warm faces. She smiles back, staring at the menu unsure of what to choose. She hums with excitement. Her usual order rollsContinue reading “Breathe”

If It’s Meant To Be…

Do you ever wonder why you said goodbye?  What could have happened if you hadn’t let go?  If you hadn’t gone separate ways?  Would you still be friends?  Would you still be close?  Still be more? Still share secrets?  It’s weird to think that there are people out there who know your secrets. People you trusted and believed in.  But you can’t dwell on those thoughts.  There’s a reason people come and go in your life. They come to teach you lessons andContinue reading “If It’s Meant To Be…”

The Truth About Friendships

In elementary school everything is sunshine and rainbows. We smile and laugh with our friends. Drama free, worry free, mentally free from the chaos of feelings and bills. We have this thought in our head that we’ll be friends forever; yearbooks filled with sappy messages promising such a thing. But here is the reality, it’sContinue reading “The Truth About Friendships”
