Don't Take Second Chances For Granted

Because at the end of the day, what do you have to lose?

Second chances.

Sometimes they are worth it and other times you find yourself second guessing ever giving someone a second chance. But some second chances are risks you have to take. Especially when it comes to loving someone and having patience with not only them but yourself.

Sometimes the right person will come along but it won't be the right timing. I'm a very strong believer in "right person, wrong timing". Sometimes people have to grow apart and truly find themselves and what they want in order to be the best version of themselves.

Nothing is going to be easy when you reconnect with someone after so much time has passed. But what I have learned is that if two people love each other and want it to work, they will always find a way. The challenge will be worth the reward if you have faith and trust in each other. It's about taking chances and not being afraid to say, "this is what I want" and "this is how I feel". Because at the end of the day, what do you have to lose?

I never would've imagined my life how it is today compared to how it was a year ago, but I mean this in the best way possible. I'm so thankful for the person that I have grown up to be, and for my boyfriend who is patient with me beyond belief. Second chances mean everything when the person is everything to you. I will not take any of these moments for granted.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
