"Fathom your soul to speak more beautiful words." - Audrey Silver

As a writer, I am both equally in love and afraid of words. Words are funny things. The wrong ones can destroy everything. The right ones can heal the most broken hearts. The thing about words though... Is sometimes the right words to say, hide away where your feelings stay, and it's scary to go that deep.

As a writer, I feel that words will be the most important thing that I will leave behind. When you love someone, you should tell them. When you miss someone, you should tell them. We are all just trying to get through life, to find success and happiness. Holding your tongue is not going to help anyone.

I've always been somewhat of an introvert and making friends wasn't always easy for me. My best friend was my grandmother who read novels and wrote poetry no matter how much pain she was in. Before and after she passed away, writing and words meant more to me than ever before. When you know someone is dying, you choose your words a little more wisely. I guess what I'm saying is, you never know when someone will no longer be in your world, and shouldn't the last words you say to someone be as beautiful as you are?

The feelings we feel are never out of place. I know you're scared to send that one text message, make that one phone call, tell that one person you love them... This is your sign to do so. Life is too short. We pick our words before they come out of our mouth, choose them wisely.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
