    ...Anzac Day. Shame it's only taken the UK one

    hundred years to catch up but better late than never. Today is the centenary of the start of the Gallopolli Landings. 58000 Allied troops and 87000 Turks all killed in the bloodiest event of World War One that lasted an incredible 8months. Looking forward to seeing the Queen...

    My life feels like a jigsaw puzzle often (but

    then again; who's doesn't? right).... I just found a part of me that's been missing for a long time now. It came to my realization a couple days ago that I am friendly....what I mean is that I do seek friendship and alliances.....for the longest time I believed in a lie about...

    Silent car rides across the plains of Kansas

    when I would curl up in the passenger-side floorboard in the warmth of the heater and let my imagination run freely till I heard the wheels hit the rocky road that led to my grandmother's house.

    In infant school when I was around 5

    or 6, there was a little boy called Jason in one of my classes. He wore glasses, was very shy like me, and had a patch over one of his eyes. One day I blurted out something silly over what the sticker on his face was for, and since then we became the best of friends, and I used...

    I remember when I used to be

    so fragile, so naive, so caring and trusting. 14 years old, aching to be 16 because I thought age labeled a person. I thought it would label me just as mature as I felt on the inside. I thought, that when I turned 16, I would be a woman. I was wrong. My 16th birthday opened a...

    Dear Professor, I'm posting this letter here,

    because I know I'll never have the courage to send it to you directly. I doubt you'll ever read it on here, but at least, I'll feel much better knowing you might eventually come across this letter, one day, when I'm gone far far away. For the past three years, the three years...

    It has been such a long time

    since I've seen you, but I can remember everything about your face. No one talks to me like you did. I hope wherever you are, you know that. I hope you revel in the fact that since you've been gone, no one has come close to taking your place. I sometimes think you were the last...

    Before all the drugs,

    before all the alcohol, before ruining my life. I was so hurt, and depressed, and I wanted to shut everything out. That’s the last thing I remembered before I began my discovery with drugs. I wanted to escape the feeling of pain, heartbreak, and …that is the real last time I...

    Mum hated spiders, so did I.

    As a particularly evil punishent when I was a child she'd make me go outside into the garage and use the end of a broom to remove cobwebs. It made me absolutely hysterical. I'd be crying and begging her, anything but that, but it was futile. As you walked in there was a dank...

    Ever remember a moment you like to stay in.

    Mine was when I was much younger than I am now. I was walking through the field fenced in on two sides by trees. As I walked I followed a crow gliding upward to the tops of the tree line south of me. Instead of following the cawing bird with my gaze, I continued to look up into...

    if I could, I'd walk with my people if I could find them, and I'd say that I'm sorry to you. I felt like crushing you, I took for granted you were with me.
