A Letter To My First Enemy

Sometimes I wonder if we could be friends again.

A Letter To My First Enemy
John Sting

My dear,

I know you hate me,

but years ago,

you used to praise me;

when you had a childhood,

before you lost your innocence,

before anyone had the chance to

take your heart and break it.

You saw the beauty in me,

but then your views started changing.


I give you life.

I walk the world with you.

I love you:

so why do you want me dead?

Why do you make me perform autopsies on my past mistakes

and bury the people that get close to me?

Every day, you make me hold my words hostage,

suffocating within the walls of my throat.

They are all dead,

so I started placing tombstones to mark

everything that went unsaid because of you.

All I ever wanted was for someone to save me.

I needed you, but you liked watching me burn.

Soon enough, the flames became my friends.

It started out as occasional visits,

but now I freaking live with them.

I miss you-

the person I used to know,

but this girl, this shadow of a soul,

I do not know her.

I don't know you.

You're supposed to love me,

so why don't you?

When you're ready to talk,

when your tongue is prepared to

give me some kind of answer,

I'll be here.

I will always be here.

Just look in the mirror.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
