    Want To Be Missed

    I've been divorced for almost a year.  I have a sense of peace in knowing that I am no longer responsible for someone else's happiness or unhappiness depending on how you look at it.  I have a very fulfilling life.  Blessed to have a beautiful, healthy daughter and the most...

    Revel By Myself

    Life As It Is.

    -I'm really posting this to get everything off of my chest.- I've come to realize that I wasn't born to be happy. I wasn't privileged enough to have a good family, or a great home. I didn't grow up with a want to become the next best physician, or the greatest astrophysicist. No...

    Distance is a powerful elixir. These days, space holds relatively little meaning to me. I feel my interests are omnipresent and invasive, yet just out of reach.
