When you're thinking of what could've gone wrong.

Poetry on Odyssey: The Best You've Ever Had


How can one brush off

all of the memories,

all of the feelings,

all of the struggles,

into a dustpan and toss it out?

Did it hurt to pick up the pieces?

Was it hard to resist the urge of putting it all back together?

Were they painful to pick up?

They say love is a crazy thing.

But what makes it so crazy?

The way it makes you feel invincible

And way it makes you feel helpless?

Is it the euphoric sensation of free falling into what you call love?

Or the way it drives you insane because you’d do ANYTHING for it?

I bet it feels nice to finally feel like you are out of control,

Because if something goes wrong, at least it isn't your fault, right?

Love may be crazy, but it is also beautiful.

But what is the definition of beauty?

It’s open for interpretation, it is different for everyone.

Unfortunately, we did not meet eye to eye with this.

Beauty is not only seen, but felt.

Beauty is not only felt, but heard.

Beauty is not only heard, but touched.

Beauty is not only touched, it is priceless.

There is no definitive value to beauty,

And so, it is nearly impossible to indefinitely know how much it is worth fighting for.

But do not count the money wasted,

The future plans,

The tears shed,

The hours awake,

The nights out,

And the kisses given.

Pain is temporary.

Love is endless.

Do not expect yourself to get stronger,

Each time you put someone down harder,

Because in the end,

You will be the one running from the pain,

While you leave another in vain,

Saying you’re off to find better,

To do better,

To feel better.

But how will you have better

When it was "the best you've ever had"?

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.
