Let’s Get Personal

Sometimes you have words worth writing down every day for months at a time. Sometimes you can’t even open a word document for a month and a half. Sometimes you tell yourself you’re doing fine and you’re getting by despite every little task feeling like trying to push a boulder up a mountain. Sometimes youContinue reading “Let’s Get Personal”

Would 7-year-old me be proud of who I’ve become?

Sometimes it feels like I’m not myself anymore. But I am, I’m just growing. And changing. I’m finding my way in the world as an adult. Not that that’s new, it’s been a good few years now, but when I was first 18, I didn’t feel like an adult. Even when I turned 21 andContinue reading “Would 7-year-old me be proud of who I’ve become?”

Snowfall | #poetry #poetrycommunity

There’s a calmness in the winter the stillness and the silence bundling up under several layers just to go watch the dog run around outside and come back inside to a piping hot cup of hot chocolate hands like icicles, wrapped around the mug, warming. December can feel like a separate world from reality, everyoneContinue reading “Snowfall | #poetry #poetrycommunity”

Misguided | #poetrycommunity

It’s notContinue reading “Forgiveness”

Anytime someone triedContinue reading “Creative Fiction Profile | Loneliness and Headaches”

Five Years Later

Being 23 is nothing like what the movies make it seem like. At least not for me. Movie-23-year-olds are at their dream job, engaged to the love of their life, and have life figured out. I think watching movies like that did not prepare me for what being 23 is actually like. Being 23 meansContinue reading “Five Years Later”

Uncertainty

Am I where I should be? Is this what I want? Does anyone know what they want? Or are they just blindly chasing a feeling? People put on a reassuring smile and say they’re happy, they’re doing what they want and “don’t worry, you will be, too.” Sure, maybe they’re right and I know I’mContinue reading “Uncertainty”

An ever-changing world

I want to grow I want to bloom I want to look back on this time and think of how much I’ve changed for the better and be proud of myself I’ve always been growing I’ll always be changing I’ll always be looking back on the past with a hint of nostalgia and a waveContinue reading “An ever-changing world”
