    The simplest thing I could say is I love you A

    truth in my life I can't even begin to explain but that's a lie, I know exactly what I'm going through. I spy with my all seeing eye, this entity that is love, an infinite being I breathe as I long to weave this thing to a beautiful tapestry of a future with you and my dreams...

    Think About It...

    Dear Cali, I don’t know how exactly to

    explain this to you in a way that you might understand. I’ll try to start from the beginning, but even that might not be enough. You see, when I was little, when I was growing up, throughout my childhood, my parents ignored me. They never showed any interest in what I was...

    It's weird sometimes how we can't let go of our

    fragments. We instinctively and unwillingly hold onto the broken bonds we once forged so long ago. The memories stay aflame despite the efforts of time and space to douse them, and in doing so remind us of what it's like to be burned. My mother had a double mastectomy yesterday...

    It's depressing to keep applying to jobs and hearing nothing back. I so badly want to work, to get out of the damn house and do something that means the world to me, but the world isn't letting me, at least not yet. Sometimes I think I should just give up and apply to law school...
