The Liberty to Fail

....a hidden treasure

The Liberty to Fail
Onehdwallpaper

The regulations of this society are truly terrifying.

We humans are subjugated to a world of...

Precision

Balance,

and Cadence.

We act for desires so far ahead of our lifetimes.

Yet we never know if we will live to see the day.

So to find life in this esoteric world...

we must find appreciation.

To view each letter as a star.

Each sentence as a sequence.

The sky begins to reflect on our papers

Our Essays, constellations.

Truly the sky's mirror.

It is when we look to the stars, we are surrounded by fascination.

It is truly one of life's greatest treasures.

It comes as it wishes,like the wind.

Never visible, only felt and heard.

Through the wind, we give the voice a physical [presecence.

It is the kind that defies gravity...floating.

We view it as its own.

Ignoring the constraints of this universe.

So when we become the wind, we are set free.

We realized that when we fail

We are only breaking the forces of this life.

So to live life without constraints, we appear to defy gravity.

Like that of a penguin who swims underwater, floating in its depths, with reason.

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."

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?

12947

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.
