Pen and Paper.

Read these now, learn from them later.

Pen and Paper.

Having gone through my fair share of heartache, I’ve learned that sometimes the only way that you can express your true feelings, is by writing them down. The pen and paper on which you express you utter most inner and raw emotions allows you on some level to feel closure. But in order to heal, and move on from the dark cloud that becomes your mind is to learn not only from your pain, but the pain of others. Feeling the despair, or joy, or love from someone else's lives makes you realize that yes, you are not alone, and that we all to some extent reach a point in our lives where we are a mess of beautifully tragic words on paper.

I’ve read, and written quite a few works of art that for me depict what it is like to live in today’s world. A world that is full of love and hate. A world that is filled to the brink, of terror, joy, passion and pain. And in this moment, I want you too as well to read what we are.

About a thing called Love.

"There is a place in the heart that
will never be filled
a space
and even during the
best moments
the greatest times
we will know it
we will know it
more than
there is a place in the heart that
will never be filled
we will wait
in that space."
--No Help for that, Charles Bukowski

About a thing called Strength.

"i am water
soft enough
to offer life
tough enough
to drown it away" --Rupi Kaur

About a thing called Pain.

"Sometimes my
become a pile of broken glass
they do no come out
without hurting;
dripping blood
and i forget
how to speak." - Difficulty, Noor Unnahar

About a thing called Growth.

"...So keep calling me crazy 'cause I never learned
you should stop loving fire because you got burned
Now it feels like I'm living some sick deja vu
Like the answers were there when I started into you..." -Ryn Weaver

About a thing called being broken.

"The loneliest moment in someones life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly." F.Scott Fitzgerald

About a thing called life.

"It always shocked me when I realized I wasn't the only person in the world who thought and felt such strange and awful things." -John Green, Looking for Alaska

About a thing called Living.

" I wanted to stay locked away from the pain and destruction.
I didn’t want to be strong.
I didn’t want to be the ‘smart girl’.
I was so very tired.
I just wanted it all to be over." - Ruta Sepetys, Salt to the Sea

And after you have read these I hope you pick up the pen and paper. Go and write, write about what he did, write about the sky or how it feels to be in love with the one person that you will never have. Put the twisted radiant words on paper so that someone else can learn and know what you know now.

And then send them to me, I want to learn too.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
