    Better Hair Care

    Ok so about a week ago a few of my friends cornered me, you see we had all been trying out new hair colors for a while trying to find one we liked. Unfortunately this meant that we all suffered a similar fate- dry hair that was a bit damaged and the colors washed out too quickly...

    Dream Within A Dream

    Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is...

    I Respect Him...

      Once in the 11th grade I did a report on him. Then I realised..he's not a weird'o with creepy poems. He's a man who eventually lost every woman he loved. I can't imagine everybody I possibly love, end up dying-as if I was a curse....

    Awesome

    Love Edgar Alan Poe, I must say. So morbid and twisted right up my alley. His writings remind me alot of my own, although regrettably, the novel I'm currently working on is nowhere near his twisted greatness. But yes, I love his style. I love the morbid, twisted, deliciousness...
