C’est la vie! I can’t control the cards that I have been dealt, just like I can’t control how other people act or think. I am trying to make the best of a bad situation.

I’ve been having a hard time processing Wade’s death and I couldn’t figure out why. I mean, yeah, he was my godkids father. So, yes, I feel beyond horrible with what they are going through, and with what my best friend is going through, but I just couldn’t […]
I had a boringly eventful day. One might ask how something is boringly eventful. Well, what I mean by that is that I have had a pretty boring day (I spent about 90% of my waking day writing and doing outlines, and finding new articles to write for […]
I am slowly starting to get my life back. One day at a time, one piece at a time, and one moment at a time.

The Adventure Begins I am finally getting back to normal, and I love it! I was in such a bad spot with that depressive episode. Sleep was impossible, but that was all I wanted to do. I couldn’t sleep because my mind would not stop racing with […]

Another one of my articles got published on Vocal today and I thought I would share this one on here too. Please check it out and let me know what you think. You can leave a comment here. I am always up for some constructive criticism because I know that is the only way to improve my writing. I know it’s not my best work, but I don’t think it totally sucks either.
Introduction to my article “Families Who Survived The Odds”
I feel kind of ridiculous now for posting about how going on vacation is going to be hard for me because of much I am going to want to drink. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it still rings true. However, I found out this afternoon that my […]
