story number two
I’ve started writing my second short story of the semester. It is turning out to be absolutely crazy. I have no idea where it is going and these characters are just jumping off the page! I frequently wonder where these people come from. Are they reflections of myself or are they people I see around me? and why am I so able to find them in this world? this is one thing i love so dearly...
when i was seventeen
I missed the hows whys and whats of your voice sliding to my soul when you said “this just cannot happen again” I missed the “I don’t love you” (because all I could hear was I love you) screaming out of my heart pounding pounding against the pavement running away from reality the reality where you love her and not me but the reality where our bodies find each other in the darkness where our...

i thought that i couldn’t forget him until he broke my heart. well, here i am. heartbroken. i guess this is what forgetting looks like. good bye 7 years. i will miss you, but honestly. this is for the best. no more calls. no more. nothing. i am gone. gone gone gone. goodbye austin. you were wonderful, until you weren’t. you destroyed my self confidence unknowingly. you lifted me...
I LOVE fall! The cold weather is refreshing and bites my skin when I go outside reminding me that I am alive and this life is good. I love going to starbucks and getting a pumpkin spice latte. It is a sweet combination of espresso and pumpkin. I love the changing colors in fashion and leaves. I love the foggy mornings cautioning us for the day. I love fall.
i’m more lonely than you’ll ever know.
So. I’ve been single for 2 years. Painfully single. I haven’t been in any pseudo relationships and I haven’t really hooked up with many guys. My love life has actually been non-existent. Most girls would weep and groan about this, but for some reason I find it liberating. I feel as if I know myself better than most girls/women my age. I can understand who I am and what my needs...
OKAY. TATTOO IDEA. I’m kind of obsessed with it. I’ve wanted this word on me for awhile, but couldn’t figure out how to do it. but… NOW I KNOW. Imagine a tree. Perhaps the Tree of Life with all of its curly branches or something like that and the roots go down to form the word Saudade, but the word is in typewriter font. or maybe cursive. I haven’t figured that out...
i’m my best when i’m with you.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT. i did NOT know that that was the band my ex was in. okay. wow. congrats to him. he made something of himself. and i like to think it was me that made him do that.
I just watched Whip It, it stars Ellen Page and is Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut. I have to say, it was a fun movie. It was definitely a warm fuzzy movie with the disguise of tattoos and ass-kicking chicks. The best part though was finding out that the hunky indie dude was actually a really awesome singer (Landon Pigg). I’ve thought he is dreamy for many moons and was excited to...

i lied. i think we’re perfect for each other. except for the miles and miles of distance between and all the other factors. but really. we’re either meant to be best friends or lovers. life is difficult. nothing is how it seems.
Just because he may be perfect for me does not necessarily mean that I may be perfect for him.
we never met, you and i. we were always inside, we were somewhere inside one another. And i’ll live without you. - mewithoutyou
the familiar sniffles are headed my way. i can feel my head getting light and my body aching. ouch. also, i still haven’t started that paper. i was hungover this morning and then dancing all evening. now i’m just stuck in bed… whoops. all nighter here i come!
