Can You Blame Me? - A Poem

As quickly as you made me believe in love, I stopped believing in it again.

Can You Blame Me? - A Poem

can you blame me

If all the promises you once made

Were merely a facade

the more we progressed, the more I looked

For the man you once were.

the late nights , the times where you made me feel inexistent

don’t fucking ever tell other people otherwise

Making me out to be the bad guy

When you will never take accountability

I thought it was my fault for so long

I thought the man you once were disappeared because of me.

but that is so far from the truth

That man you once was ,

Will never be who you are

You read so far into my words,

My identity, my essence

You knew what I wanted in a man

And became the version that I’ve always wanted,

only for it to just be slammed back

In my face because you couldn’t keep the act up

I wanted the you in the beginning to come back

so badly that I stopped finding the beauty in myself

I believed all the things you said to me ; your words were like gospel to me.

since I truly did feel safe with you.

And thought that you would always be there for me.

but after showing my demons & vulnerabilities since I trusted you

not only were you shocked but you also viewed me as a burden

even though I was there through all your bullshit

I never put them against you; I just wanted you to hold my hand and love me like the way you did before

Can you blame me

If after all this time

I won’t be able to open my heart back up again

and that as quickly as you made me believe in love,

I stopped believing in it again.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.

The Madness of March Madness

Paying students is not the fundamental problem.


It is March and with it comes madness, and with that madness comes the exhausting debate on whether or not college athletes should get paid.

Things To Do In Austin Over Spring Break

From swimming holes to SXSW, I got you covered.

Spi Abroad

With spring break quickly approaching in the next couple of weeks for high school and college students, most will be heading home to spend time with family and friends, while others will be going to explore new places such as the beach or someplace new to go. Austin has been ranked in numerous lists of best cities to visit and move to in the U.S, but having been born in raised in Austin, I can tell you everything there is to do.

With spring break around the corner, it's time to look at some ground rules. We are used to seeing insane partying in Panama City Beach and other Florida locations. We have an image in our minds of what the perfect Spring Break is as depicted in countless movies. We are ready to party hard. With that in mind ... we all wanna make it back alive to continue on our path of this wonderful journey for a college education.


1. Rally. Do you really want a hangover at 8 p.m.? I don't think so.

2. Buy souvenirs. I know you want a new tank top to wear every day. 

3. Spend most of your hours on the beach. You don't want to come back from Spring Break with no color. Being the pale friend is no fun.

4. Take a ton of pictures. These will help you remember the week for years to come.

5. Remember to have #NOREGRETS. What happens on Spring Break, stays on Spring Break. (The Vegas Rule.)


1. Don't do anything in public that you wouldn't want your mother seeing a picture of. Your friends will take pictures, I promise. You don't want this as wedding blackmail years later.

2. Don't get sick in public. If you don't feel good, go back to your hotel.

3. Don't leave any friends behind. They most likely won't be comfortable with the area. They may not even speak the native language.

4. Don't get caught. Take this whichever way you want.

5. Don't break the 'Vegas Rule'. I don't care if it is 10 years down the line.
