Here's to all the love, laughs, and cherished memories to come!

An Oath To Myself As I Turn 21

As I enter my twenty-first year around the sun, feelings of nostalgia and excitement seem to overwhelm me. I feel as if this year, unlike most, I have so many plans and expectations for myself to fulfill.

Although the stigma that surrounds this birthday pertains back to lots of partying, I have much more in mind when it comes to celebrating.

This year, I want to continue to grow in my faith.

My friends have been so helpful when it comes to encouraging me to attend church and other youth group activities. Nonetheless, I want to take the initiative to push myself to grow in my faith along with my friends and family. I look up to all of their insight and perspectives on continuing their spiritual path with God and desire to obtain that type of relationship with Him.

This year alone, I feel like I have changed immensely as a person and truly care about my spiritual values. Therefore, I am ready more than ever to build a strong foundation with the Lord our Savior.

I desire to put my family and friends first.

I want to spend quality time with the people that I cherish most in my life. My family and friends are true lights in my life. I couldn't take on any endeavor without their support. Honestly, it is so refreshing to be surrounded by those who love and care about you as well.

That is why I plan on investing as much as I can into their lives as they have reciprocated to me.

So here is to plenty more laughs, happy tears, and smiles that I can't wait to share with my loved ones.

I want to be more grateful.

It's so important to remember how blessed I am to live the life that I do. I know that I take things for granted and am unappreciative sometimes. However, when I take a moment to reflect on all of the blessings that God has given me, I instantly become more grounded.

It's so essential to remember that there are people who don't have the same demographic and background that I do. I want to remain grateful and give back to those who need love and support the most.

Finally, I want to live life to the fullest.

As I take on this twenty-first year of life, I want to seize any and every moment that I get to travel, be silly, and love others. It's important to make the most of your young adult life and have fun doing it. I can't wait to see all that this year holds, and I hope to become even more wise as time passes.

Furthermore, I plan to make twenty-one one of the greatest years ever! Here's to all the love, laughs, and cherished memories to come. I couldn't be more excited!

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.
