    My Favorites This Month

    This month has been really crazy and I thought I would write a post about some of my favorite things this month. Books The Well Of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall- this fascinating read challenged mainstream society and was banned upon publication nearly ruining Hall’s career. It is not an autobiography but is very similar to Hall’s own life. The story revolves around Stephen a girl whose parents are disappointed at having a daughter. Her father quickly accepts that he has a daughter instead of the son he longed for but her mother never really gets over it. Stephen who was always more masculine and different from the other girls grows…

    Phases I Went Through

    All teenagers go through a bunch of phases (that mostly tend to be extreme, weird or annoying). We’ve all been at that phase when you don’t support the government and prefer anarchy or communism over democracy (wait was that just me?). We’ve all also gone through that phase where we want to get a bunch of piercings and dye our hair. As someone who just turned eighteen (a legal adult but technically still a teenager) these are the phases I have been through over the past few years: The mad at everyone phase– this is one of the first phases I went through as a newly proclaimed teenagers. My hormones…

    Life- A Poem

    I feel empty and cold Like an unwritten book I just want someone to hold Someone to watch As I pour out my agony Can’t anybody see How I feel inside Can’t anybody be The person to whom I confide Will anyone hold me If ever we collide Too much work Too much to revise Not enough time to be the best And to be happy You must choose now But choose wisely For you will quickly regret that road That you were once running on That you now cry by alone What was once running Will quickly turn to jogging And what was once walking Will quickly turn to…

    Living With Depression

    Many people don’t understand what depression feels like and think that people who are depressed are just being sad and pessimistic and they should just try to brighten up. What people don’t realize is that depression isn’t a choice, it’s a disease. It’s sad how psychological illnesses are not taken as seriously as physical ones. Most of the time people just think that people with psychological diseases are just “weak minded” and they should just get over it. No we are not selfish, self-centered or attention seekers. Depression is real and it effects almost 350 million people worldwide. Being depressed is like trying to swim but having a rock tied…

    5 Friends You Need To Have

    In high school you’re very likely to hang out with lots of different types of people. Even though school can seem like a total drag sometimes the best part can be all the people you get to interact with. There are some people in school that you should definitely avoid but here are some that you should stop avoiding and start becoming friends with: The book nerd– she/he is probably sitting in a library engrossed in a large book that gives you anxiety just thinking of it (unless you too are a nerd like me in which case you will feel a warm, fuzzy feeling inside). This friend probably has…

    The World- Poetry

    The world is a lonely place Bursting with life Billions of people walk by And yet we are always alone Why do we fight so much? War after war What will we have fought for When there will be nothing left anymore When the only thing you will have won Are the dead bodies of your soldiers And the destruction of the world Is it really worth it? Your bombs and tanks and guns You kill millions without even blinking And cry when your mother dies Do we even know why we go to war anymore? There is no reason great enough to justify massacre You hate them because they’re…

    Please- Poetry

    Please may I? Asks the little girl May I feel love No because it will only hurt you The voice answers Then may I dream big And hope to be famous someday She asks No because you will only end up miserable and alone The voice replies Can I find my own answers Without believing everything I hear She questions No people will judge you for being different The voice tells her Should I trust people I meet She inquires No they are dangerous, they will only hurt you and leave Could I love the opposite gender And the same gender too She asks No you’re just confused The voice…

    Book Review: Paper Towns

    *Warning: Contains Spoilers* John Green’s Paper Towns is easily a classic and officially one of my favorite books. His style of making the characters painfully realistic and relatable just makes the book better. John Green brings to life characters and plot lines that no other author could do so well. He never stops to try to make his characters perfect and pleasing to the reader but instead brings out their flaws clearly, not hiding any details. The first John Green book I have ever read was An Abundance Of Katherines and since then I have admired his writing skills. His books bring out emotions no one even knew existed. Green…

    The Darkness- Poetry

    The darkness fills my mind It chews me up And spits me out In this darkness I can no longer see I can no longer feel I can no longer move I can no longer breathe I’m suffocating In my own darkness I can see the light But I can never reach it This abyss of darkness Has claimed my life It has claimed my soul Why can’t anyone see my darkness? Why won’t anyone help me walk to the light? I can’t bare it anymore I just want to let go And let the darkness take over I can’t fight anymore I have lost the war ________________________________________________________________________________ This poem…
