Why I Write

It's more than just a hobby

Why I Write

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to write. I would open a blank word document and just start typing. I would type whatever came to mind. This has always been something that I enjoyed doing in my free time. For a while, I thought about going to school for creative writing, but I decided not to. I didn’t want to ruin the magic of writing. I was worried that I would get sick of it. Instead, I continued to write for fun. I enjoy writing about whatever topic comes to mind, whether it be fashion, music, travel, friends, or anything else I can think of. It’s an incredible feeling and one that can turn any bad day around.

Sometimes writing can be hard. I can face writer’s block and the struggle of not having anything to write about. I can stare at a blank document for hours and still have no idea what I want to say. It always leads to a moment of panic where I worry that I have nothing to write about. But once I figure it out, it’s the best feeling. I end up being able to write something that I feel good about, something that I’m proud of, and overall something that I enjoy reading. It may be difficult at first, but it always ends up being worth it.

Writing is the perfect form of self-expression and creativity. It’s a way for me to express my thoughts and to have my voice be heard. There is something so freeing about putting my thoughts and ideas onto paper. I am able to relax and just write whatever is in my mind. It’s a way to release my mind from the stress of schoolwork.

It may not always be the easiest to just sit down and write, but it always ends up being worth it. Writing takes my mind off of school for a while and I always feel proud of the work I’ve created. I love to write and I don’t think my love for it will ever die.

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."
