    Can't Stop Looking Back

    I can't help feeling that I want to have my past back, I feel no older than I did at 16, my whole life was turned on it's head and somewhere along the years I've lost myself in my past. I wish I could move on and remember the good times but I can't seem to do it. I'm getting...

    Life Was So Easy When Summer Lasted Forever...

    Remember that? the feeling that summer lasted forever, and there was so much thrilling potential, just around the corner - all the waterfights, camps, sleepovers, parties, family visits, and feasts that summer held in store?   I reckon its always summertime in heaven.

    I Am Growing Up and Looking Back

    Growing up makes me taste joy and pain. Looking back makes me realize who I was and what I am.

    It Took A Turkey To Realize There Are Better Choices To Be Made! :)

    Tragedy

     Today for whatever reason I think back on these past three years. The beginning of so many new friendships that quickly dissolved, the tragedies, and the good memories that brought so many laughs. I think about the Man who changed it all by bringing into my life the hero I'll...

    Looking Back At It

    I was raped 7 years ago.  The memory of it comes back randomly and when it does, I play the scene over in my head.  When it does, I feel sick to my stomach.  I don't want to cry, I don't get angry, but my stomach just feels funny.  No idea why I do that. ...

    I Love You

    In my young beautiful life as a child I played and found joy in most everything I touched or saw. In the uncertain years of being a teen and trying to find the place I belong I loved with fear of losing and cried with hurt of heart, yet found time inbetween to act out...

    Changes & Memories

      I miss living in NY. I lived there until I was 11 years old. Then I moved to Florida -___-. Here, I've become a completely different person from who I was then. Before, I was a naive and stuck-up, spoiled brat. I treated people like they should be honored that I even...
