Some People Feel The Rain, Others Just Get Wet

Dear sleeping beauty,

When you wake up what is your experience? Is it something like hearing the beautiful noise of birds chirping, the wind blowing, or knowing that today is the day that you're ALIVE?

You're up and moving, you can breath,and you can do things. Are you aware? Are you being appreciative of the moment? Some people wake up without acknowledging the fact that they can even hear those birds chirping. Or maybe they've overlooked the bright reflection that the sun is sharing upon their window.

People take advantage of the natural and supernatural gifts placed upon their lives each and everyday. Watching the cars flow through the streets, yet still they’re not aware. Because instead of being amazed with how far mankind has came with technology, it’s the negative disadvantages that catch the eye.These people are not truly “woke”. So I say to you, if you're one of these sleeping beauties who have been taking the Earth's gifts for granted, change your ways. Do something for our planet, and make an effort everyday to leave your mark!

“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet”.

A touch of philosophy from Aryonne Genae’Link:“Challenges will arise, but it’s up to you to overcome them. Look at the bright side at least you have challenges to face, some people are dead…”

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.

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.
