Conversations With My Body​

Learning how to love while still using logic.


The moon is a lonely candle illuminating the ocean as the waves roll in and out.

I have wandered away from my sheets again like a zombie stuck in a trance.

"Where am I, how did I get here, why. am. I. here?"

These were the thoughts wandering around the intricate mazes of my mind.

Heart then commanded my hands to excavate the sand and retrieve our memories that I had buried; she wants me to dig up what has already been done because she cannot move on.

Do you mind if I call you everyday just to make sure you're still breathing?

You know this world is crazy...and I promise this ain't no excuse to hear your voice, I just wanna know your safe because even if I can't have you this world still needs you.

Brain and Heart tried to figure out your ways, but boy you were a locked vault and a guarded dungeon; the thoughts of your mind came and left without a trace and you had the power to disable the primary function of your heart.

These two dominant organs within me can never agree and they are always bickering and arguing about what I need; they are like a married couple trying to raise me.

But tonight as I was digging, all of the stars wrote my name across the deep blue sky...

Then Brain spoke to me:

"Your past memories are no longer of any importance. Your soul is wandering at night in search of you. Oh how we yearn to be reunited with you again in the purest sense reviving what is dead and feeding you in ways that only we can. We are in search of you while you are in search of him.

We need you; save us."

I listened to logic.

Look, I Don't Want Your Boy, But 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' Makes Me Feel Incredible

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.


I have seen so many thoughts and complaints that Ariana Grande's new song, "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored" is shallow.

Some are even saying, "this song just perpetuates everything that is wrong with dating and relationships in society today."

But, girl, I have to disagree.

You see, just because I sing this song at the top of my lungs in both my dorm's shower and alone in my car, I am not going to steal anyone's boyfriend.

I am simply pretending like I am some kind of bad chick that no one should mess with but in reality, I apologize for walking in someone's direction.

And, let's say, if I were to say something lighthearted or friendly to him and he responds with actions that propose cheating, he wasn't a good boyfriend in the first place.

Listen, girls: stop being so insecure.

You have a boyfriend. He loves you. He chose you. If another girl comes by and his eyes dart her way, his heart wasn't in it all the way.

Not everything is deeper than the skin.

Now, let me be clear, I am not saying that it's OK for girls to go around and try to steal boyfriends. Actually, that's a pretty trashy move that no one should attempt. I know it happens, though. I know it is everyone's worst fear.

However, there is no life living within fear of rejection and being left. If those are the things that linger in the back of your mind, you will never taste the freedom of living.

Truly living.

So am I a bad person, considering that 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' is my anthem?

It makes me feel empowered. It makes me feel my best.

So no, just listening to Ari's new bop doesn't make me a bad person or a boyfriend stealer.
