    My best friend almost lost his life today.

    But he was rescued at sea, and he is alive. His boat is gone. I am glad I will not be giving an Eulogy; but instead a warm embrace.

    The world is a crazy place

    and last year was the hardest year of my life thus far. I'm thankful though, I made it through. I made it into 2015 and I kept a positive attitude and have become a "yes" person with friends and activities. This year has been amazing so far and I couldn't be more thankful for...

    Yeah.

         Things have been hellish.  Physically, I'm worried. Emotionally, I'm a mess.  Spiritually...OH MY GOD.  I've brought strife and poverty upon myself by being impulsive and irresponsible.  I wish I could blame my upbringing, I wish I...

    I came out to my fiance about being asexual

    last night. I was so nervous, as he is a naturally sexual person. I've heard horror stories of people getting dumped and left for someone who enjoys sex. But he was extremely understanding. And feels bad that we have been sexual, not knowing that I didn't like it. He thought at...

    Gratefulness Is a Way to Get High

    I was 9 y/o when I last saw my mom,

    and that was 16 years ago. Honestly, I stopped counting after it's 10th year, but I'm thankful, even after all the hates, it just feels great that we could see her. And what's more, I received the news after my dad's 1st death anniversary.

    to have a friend like you,

    even though your honesty made me cry it will be cherished. To truly understand myself, i will steady myself to look beyond those walls and begin to accept that 'my demons' are apart of who I am. (Let's hope they are not as scary as I think) Thank you 💓
