To The Person I Know I Can Trust

Thank you for being my person.

To The Person I Know I Can Trust

I seem to come off as a really trustworthy person because I am an open book, but that's truly not the case. I have had people stab me in the back, pretend to be my friend, and take advantage of me. I have been hurt and bruised by people who I once thought I could trust. So really in reality, I don't trust people easily. That is, I don't trust people with my emotions, body, or life. It takes a long time for me to feel as if I can open up to someone. Then you came along. It was like you were sent to me to prove that I can trust someone completely.

Something about you is different from what I am used to. I feel protected when I am by your side. I know you would not let anyone hurt me. You hate seeing me hurt, and you always make sure that I am safe and alright.

I trusted you right from the beginning:

-You walked with me in the dark one night so I wouldn't have to walk alone.
-You always make sure I'm okay emotionally before you say goodbye or leave.
-You have me text you when I get home safely (whether I walked or drove).
-You make me feel comfortable in your presence. I am comfortable sleeping by you, which is one of my most vulnerable physical states.
-You hold me tight, and deep down, I know you wouldn't let anything bad happen to me because you love me.
-You hate seeing me cry, and you don't always understand my emotions, but you listen anyway.
-I don't drink, but if I did I know you'd make sure I was okay and nobody touched me. You'd protect me. I know you would.
-You have even distanced yourself from me because you were worried you were going to hurt me. But let's face it, you were worried about getting hurt as well.
-You check up on me and ask how I am everyday.
-You let me vent to you and I know what I say stays between us.

You have become my sense of home. My home away from home, if you will. I always go to you because I know I can trust you. I know you love me and will do everything in your power to protect me. I love you so much. Not only for that, but also for being the way that you are.

You care about me and make me so comfortable. My comfort does not come easily, but with you it did. I've never felt so safe with another human being before. I tend to have the idea that "people suck" because everyone tends to hurt me in one way or another, and sometimes people betray my trust in them, but you've created an environment where I feel comfortable and at home. I have your back as well. I'll always be there for you and provide you with comfort. Thank you for being the person I can trust.

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
