What a crazy time, my friends. I feel like so much is happening at the same time, and this is my best shot at putting it into words. I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. I know that it can be hard to be isolated, especially when it seems like we're completely surrounded by bad news. Remember that we're all in this together :)


I feel like I'm thirteen

Upset in my room

Because Mom is mad at me again

I feel like no one understands

But aren't I supposed to be an adult?

The world is on pause

And this is everything we wanted

For the hustle to stop for a little

So we could nap

Wouldn't that be nice?

But not like this

There's literally a side panel on the news that says


An upward count

But through all this

I keep thinking about

The way my heart was racing

When I finally graced your hand

With every stroke of your thumb, it beat louder

Oh, so you want this too?

I walk you out

For an awkward and forbidden kiss

That's been replaying in my mind

But that

Just like everything else

Is suddenly



And I can't stop thinking

It's like we've got a competition going

How much shame can I take?

How long until I break?

Can't I just give it up already?

I love the burning in my chest

When I almost say it

As close as I can get to the truth

Without the commitment

Send me back

Just let me wake up for class

Let me think about skipping it

Let me drag myself to work and the gym

Let me sit in New York by myself


Out of my mind

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Things to do in October.


Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween. I love Halloween especially with all the candy and different types of goodies. Halloween is for everyone that enjoys to be a part of this wonderful holiday and also be careful on Halloween as well. It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.
