I am a great believer in the power of true beauty. Ignore the media’s definition of “beauty” as being reserved for tall supermodels or having sleek hair, and think about the examples…Continue
This is my first blog everybody and right now I just need to express my views of growing into an adult! As I'm getting older I'm starting to realize different things. I value my education more so than ever before. I feel like my life is speeding right by me and I can't even stop to look…Continue
I'm not sure if there are words to describe how phenomenally crazy the year 2012 was for me. At least it feels like there aren't any. It was like my favorite song of the past school semester, "Rollercoaster of Love" performed by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. There were huge peaks in this rollercoaster where I almost flew out of my seat and lost all control. It was "no bueno" and you know what that leads too. Then, there was the adrenaline rush and the high hopes. Finally, there was…Continue
"Oh but it is not my fault!"
I am not going to post a blog about life saving techniques, how to make your high school life easier, why I havent been on, more or less, whatever you can think.

There's times when the world gets too noisy and then I wish I could float on a cloud and watch the world happen from above. Today is a cloudy day and there's puddles on the ground. Driving down roads, I love the breeze my lowered windows invite in. My thoughts are left for the wind to blow away, but there's always those souvenirs of memory that live too deep inside the cushions of my brain. I've never met a boy who invited me to take his hand on an adventure. There's times when I want to…Continue
