Surviving Life

Take each day one by one.

Surviving Life
Mountain View Family Medicine

This is a song I wrote called "Survival." One may feel that the world is against them and that they don't have what it takes to win the battles/wars in life, but in reality, everyone has what it takes to live another day no matter how hard the roads may get.

Do I have what it takes to stand my ground

Do I have what it takes, or have I just drowned

Do I have a voice that speaks from my heart

To scream and to shout for a brand new start

I know I have what it survive

How can I look forward in life

When I cannot see between their lines

The line of perfection, the line of rejection

The boundaries they set is the line of selection

My vision is blurred from all around

With hatred and fear as the common ground

They speak with direction, but I hear subjection

The voices inside are in need of correction

How can I fix the problem I see

When I can’t read the words within me

I long for acception, but I feel suppression

The face that I see is from self deception

The heart beats, but broken within

The wounds and scars as they have been

The battles that I fight, for the chance to see the light

Deep down inside, I will soar to a new height

I have what it takes to stand my ground

I have what it takes, and I won’t drown

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid,, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.

A letter to my friend I’ll love forever

“It’s sad but sometimes when two people come to the end of the road they have to take different paths”

A letter to my friend I’ll love forever

It started way back in 2014, the very first time I saw you, you had long blonde hair and bright green eyes and a smile that was infectious. You where holding my favorite cousins hand, you didn’t say much at first and neither did I.
