To the one who got away, from the one who wishes you were still here

I guess all I can really do is just try to take care of myself and move on the best I can because I don't know if I will ever get you back.

To the one who got away, from the one who wishes you were still here


I know it's been a while, but I had a few things I needed to get off of my chest. I won't lie, you have been on my mind. I haven't forgotten about you, that's a fact. I'm sorry things ended the way they did. I wish it could have been better.

I wonder what our life would be like if we had started dating and if circumstances played out better. You really did make me laugh constantly, I definitely fell for your goofy personality. We had similar interests too, but in our own ways that made our relationship special. I could listen to you rave on and on about the things you love.

You were the first person I didn't feel pressure to not be myself around you. I didn't have anxiety with you like I had experienced with other guys in the past, and it was such a nice change. You made me feel beautiful and made sure I knew it even when I felt my worst. You made sure I knew I could talk to you about anything and you would listen. You were there for me no matter what. Until things started to get hard and things between us changed.

I could feel it, I didn't want you to slip away. Not you, you who was so kind to me, so caring. I didn't want to lose that. And I felt like I have.

I appreciate being able to still be in touch with you, but I feel like I can't talk to you when I'm not sure if you want to talk to me. It hurts. Even though I know we both don't want to lose each other completely, it definitely doesn't feel the same. My heart breaks a little every time I see your name, a picture of you, a post you make. Everything hurts because I feel like you don't want me. Or didn't want me.

I don't know what the case is exactly because I haven't gotten in touch with you in a while, but I don't really like how we left things. I know we both tried our best to figure things out, but there are some questions I need to get off my chest. Have you moved on? Was I good enough? Am I good enough for you? Do you still want to talk to me?

I guess all I can really do is just try to take care of myself and move on the best I can because I don't know if I will ever get you back.

From the girl who wishes she could still be with you.

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high. I decided I didn't need the extra helping, so I went to bed and the guacamole went bad.

When pursuing a degree that most deem 'useless' or a 'waste of time' there happens to be a lot of self-doubt and fear, especially with the pending doom of graduation around the corner. I remember when I was about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Acting, I was absolutely terrified.

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.
