    I came late to the love of lipstick, peace, maturity, self respect, sparkles, hats, empathy, tumblr, art, health, work, and tidy. Previous delusions include: I’m too young for that. The world is black and white. Emotions reflect reason. I’m too old for that. I can’t pull that off. I am perf...

    Rise up nimbly Take back what yesterday’s restlessness stole Come to the orchard Take no more than what will keep There is a breathing But it can’t keep alive your soul I would love to kiss you Don’t let fear trump desire The path of blame But I do’t know what else...

    It wasn’t allowed, but jenny always chewed gum in class, not because of some desire to act out or rebel, but because she always chewed it, period. It helped her keep her mouth busy, she seemed to have a problem with a bored mouth from the time she was a kid, when it wasn’t gum it was pencils, mu...

    People expect me to hate my job. But it’s nothing more than being paid to people watch without the fear of accused eavesdropping. She came off as spoiled, the type that called on her parents to pay for everything she ever wanted. She gave me a look like she expected me to get out and open the ...

    Life had never been a simple one. Anna lived as if she was searching for something that would make her happy forever, but she knew that it was unattainable. It wasn’t the sadness that was all too bad, but the fact that she cried instead of tears, liquid gold. This should’ve been a redeeming fact...

    As I lie here this morning I pray for the motivation to get up and prevent the headache induced by listening to my alarm for another fifteen minutes. For my twelve cozy, enveloping blankets to go poof. And for my cats to not think me so comfortable. Last night wishes for me that I could stay and sle...

    Not friends but friendly people stop to ask me what's happened, what's wrong, what's changed. I have no answer that won't lead to more questions and so I avoid it. "Oh, nothing at all! I stayed up late working on an essay. I'll be sure to get more sleep tonight. Enough ...

    polarities are aspects of the same thing; one side only exists in relationship to the other. without this emptiness; the hope of fulfillment in the future would not exist. tragedy is on our side against itself. If you're your own enemy then you'll be stuck with only friends. what you...

    We blame laziness when we know it's fear. Easy to say we fail because of lack of motivation. Failure's not flattering. I won't let it get to me. You know my best won't be enough. No one else has to. It's not about being your best. It's about being the best...

    In Sunday school when I was younger I learned that self-sacrifice for others was a positive thing. It wasn't until much later that I came to find it not always to be worth it. I don't believe a bit of appreciation is too much to expect. My sophomore year, I threw the first cross country ra...

    It has a name but it will not share. It is not happy. It does not eat. It sleeps as if it has taken too many lunesta. It does not work. It does not progress. It is ugly.

    1st- I woke up to my blaring alarm this morning. I wasn’t very happy with it. When I took a shower I felt as if I was going to fall asleep standing there. I decided not to drink coffee anymore because it is a crutch that I lean on much too much. I’d like a dependence on nothing. 2nd- You did...
