Struggling with Mortality

I start my new years resolution on my birthday, December 29th of every year. Usually, I take that day to reflect on my life and how far I’ve come in 365 days and start to set goals for the upcoming year. A few days before Christmas I got some disheartening news about my Grandmother who…

On being sick

It sucks. *throws tissue* I’ve been sick for a bit over a week and I’m at the stage where my nose is raw, eyes are swollen and running and my chest feels like it’s caving in on itself. I haven’t worked a full day in a week and I’m quite frustrated and depressed since I…

Remembering my Great Grandmother, Susan

Her name means joy, I try to keep that in mind every year as I remember her on the day that she passed. The day rushes back to me vividly and suddenly I am 12 and I’m rushing home from school because my Grandmother called the Principal and my teachers and told them I needed…

No writing errors found

There is nothing as satisfying as completing a blog post or a piece of writing and getting that message after you run spell check.  

Faithfulness of Mind

Sometimes it takes more than a firm hand to correct a wrong. Sometimes it takes a glimpse of what you’ve done shown in the tears of a lover. I never wanted to cause you pain and here I am hurting you. I never wanted to be this torn from you. We’ve put ourselves in this…

I Remember 9/11

Everyone I know that was in New York at the time of 9/11 remembers exactly what they were doing the second they heard. I was getting ready for school, fresh out of the shower I turned on New York 1 to check the weather as I usually did in the morning. Waiting for the weather…

Memory

I remember smells and tastes more than I remember faces and names. I could tell you the kind of day it was when I had my first kiss but not what I was wearing, I could recall the first song I ever sang for an audience when I was 6 but not the last time…

Sizing Chart shenanigans

Today the mission was simple; use my one hour lunch break to pick up the missing summer essentials that were so desperately needed for my July 4th celebrations. What happened? Went into a shop I like to pick up some shorts. Shorts are a main staple and if the 96 degree weather is any indication…

The Point of it All.

I feel guilty when I don’t blog post as much as I used to, want to. When I do have a writing spell, I feel awesome that I’m able to be cohesive and make a post that maybe reach someone or validate a thought they had. When I don’t write, I feel like I’m denying…

Why I dislike 50 Shades of Grey

When the books got popular I had no choice but to get them, I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. The content was supposed to be steamy, leaning to the BDSM route, how can I resist? I read all three books back to back in the space of 3 days. I was…
