existence in a vaccum | poem

to be taken to a place, a mirrorless world, to say it clearly, a world devoid of everyone save for I. a place meant for me and the colors of my brain, where busy fingers cannot tousle my hair. the songs of the north and the south are deaf to me, the writings of the…

Even MORE Doodles and Sketches By a Girl Who Can’t Draw

Doodles and Sketches By a Girl Who Can’t Draw

I kept telling myself that people are born naturally exceptional at certain skills, that some people are naturally good at drawing and I wasn’t one of them; I was denying myself the ability to try. And failing to try will always be a disservice to yourself.

Senioritis: Class of 2020

Only five full days of school have passed by and I’ve already been hit with the dreaded (inevitable) Senioritis. I would say that I’m surprised—since I have been heavily motivated and hardworking throughout my entire school career—but that would be a hilarious lie. Junior year was a complete wreck, an onslaught of projects and extra…
