I feel alive.


"Lana called me. Is everything okay?" Zeke asks Blake.

"Not exactly. Something really strange happened last night. It was almost like someone was in the house, but we could never actually see anyone," Blake responds.

I freeze. Zeke is going to know. Their conversation doesn't last long before he exits the bedroom and faces me.

"What did you do?" He asks angrily.

"Me? Zeke they have files on you and I. They have files on other people. They're STALKING people," I raise my voice.

He opens his mouth to speak, but quickly closes it. He walks past me down the stairs, not saying anything else.

"Why can't they see me?" I ask him.

"You're dead Tesla! How do you not realize you're dead?" He snaps.

The words hit me like a ton of bricks and my entire world crumbles down. I feel like crying, but no tears form. I have no tears to form. The pieces began to come together. No one can see me, no one can hear me, I can't sleep, I can't eat, but I can feel. I feel alive.

"How can you see me?" I ask, broken.

"Because you're haunting me. I don't know if you're even real or just a figure of my guilty imagination. I don't know. I don't want you to stay, but even more I don't want you to go because I love you more than I could've ever imagined. I don't think I could bear to lose you twice," he chokes on his words.

"I love you too," I say saddened.

How can I really be dead?

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
