It Will Do

I’m finally almost done with┬áThe Histories┬áby Herodotus. I’ve been reading this book for months and months. It’s so hard trying to read when you’re busy at work, busy at home, and busy trying to find a new one. Now that things are calmed down, I have the time to sit and read and actually enjoy…

Games

I just had an interesting conversation with someone I never met, and it seemed like we were both trying to figure each other out by assuming the best and worst of one another. We all have different perspectives and concerns based on past experiences that force us to act and treat people a certain way….

Snowcaps

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving yesterday! I took a little trip upstate today with my family. The mountains already had snow on them, which isn’t supposed to be anything to think twice about at this time, but in the age of global warming and climate change, even little things like that can…

Vote 4/6

I haven’t been having a good couple of weeks recently. Bad luck comes in streaks with me. And things usually get worse before they get better, as the cliches suggest. This is about a certain situation I got myself into recently. When I get myself in these situations, I try to find silver linings. Here,…

Vote 3/6

I have another poem for you all. We’re five days away from the most important election of our lives. I’m reading reports saying early voter turnout for people ages 18-39 is up significantly. The blue wave is real, but we can do better. We can always do better. I hope these poems are making a…

Pick and Choose

I treated myself to a pair of headphones for my birthday, and they finally came in the mail. I ordered them off Massdrop. They buy products in bulk and sell them at a discounted price. I managed to get a pair of thinksound On2s for $80 instead of $200. I’ve never had a pair of…

What It Means to be Human

I wrote this last night after struggling all day to come up with a flash fiction piece. I’m not sure why I’ve been having so much trouble with fiction lately. Maybe it’s because I’m totally focused on finishing my novel? Either way, poetry has been keeping me consistent with my writing goals all year, and…

Trudging

I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been very busy in our lives, and that during that time, we had no idea when it would ever end, or who we’d become after it was all said and done. I, along with everyone else who’s ever had to grow up, know that with time and…

Downpours

I wrote this quickly while looking out my window. The weather has been so terrible lately. From my window, I can see the rain coming close before it actually gets here, which is such an interesting phenomenon because there’s barely anything you can do about it. You have to just ride it out and hope…

Our Roots

Sorry for the recent lack of posts! I’m getting over a stomach bug that left me back and forth between my bed and the bathroom floor. I should hopefully be back on track with the blog. I wrote this after being inspired by a conversation I had with my girlfriend the other day when she…
