To The Boy Who Said He Was Different

You said you were different. You lied.

To The Boy Who Said He Was Different

You said you were different. You said that when you dated a girl, it was because you saw a future with her. But suddenly, you don’t see a future with me anymore. Instead, you talk about how you need to focus on your future, as if I’m holding you back from it.

You said you were different. You said that nice guys never get the pretty girl. Turns out you weren’t so nice after all. Nice guys don’t leave a girl wondering what she could have possibly done wrong. Nice guys don’t leave girls without answers.

You said you were different. You said you needed space, so I said, “Don’t forget about me.” You said, “I could never forget about you” but as I’m scrolling through our messages, or logging onto Facebook, it seems like you’ve forgotten about me already. There isn’t even a trace of our adventures or the times we’d shared.

You said you were different. You said “I love you.” Our friends thought we were crazy. Maybe we were. They said we hadn’t been together long enough to know what love was, but we were sure. We said it every morning and every night before bed, whether we were together or not. Until we didn’t. Until suddenly, it was just me. “I love you” turned into “Delivered” and “Seen at 6:12PM”.

You said you were different. When you heard about how the last few boys treated me, you were angry. You said that we would never get to a point where I was crying into my dad’s shoulders on the porch because you broke my heart. But here we are.

You said you were different. You weren’t.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
