Poetry On Odyssey: Puzzle Picture

Will the puzzle create a beautiful picture or a horrible disaster?

Poetry On Odyssey: Puzzle Picture

To be honest, when I wrote this poem, I didn't know what it was about, and when I went through and reread the original, which did not have the slashes and additional words, and I decided to put a twist on it. I added the opposites of some of the words throughout the poem, to give it a whole new meaning that anything in life, and in this case, a relationship, never turns out perfect. Although, if you try really hard at something and experience trials and failures, in the end there will always be light... a picture at the end.

I pick up the puzzle piece / whole,

Bring it to the one in my other hand,

No / yes it doesn’t go there.

I put it down, pick / reject another.

It has to be a perfect,

Otherwise, it won’t / will fit.

Another one//the same one,

With inconclusive / conclusive results.

The next piece I pick up,

Is a corner / middle piece, oh,

I know what to do.

Build off the corner

To create / destroy a picture,

Connect from the base,

From border to border / center,

And from / to corner to corner.

The picture I want to make,

Is of him, my love / hate.

A picture perfect / broken dream.

I drew it myself, to construct

What I want, what I need

For him to be / not to be.

Back to the puzzle.

I find another piece / the entirety,

Bring it to the one in my other / same hand

Oh, joy / sadness it fits,

A start to a new picture / picture / picture.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
