The “I Was Wrong” Article

I was wrong. I shouldn’t have complained about my life when there are people struggling to eat, find a nice and warm place to sleep, scraping to pay rent and car insurance, and being poor. I shouldn’t have cried and ranted on about the luxuries in life while someone else was slowly dying. I should…

What I’ve Learned So Far Moving to Another State

Just because you relocate doesn’t mean your problems dissolve. In the beginning, you’re on cloud nine because you feel as if it’s a new start and you expect things to be different. You might be searching for yourself and wish to find it in another state, but that might not always be the case. You…

No Such Thing as “The Perfect Guy”

Girls play out how meeting Mr. Right will be, how their dress will look and how their wedding will seem. As girls, we often fantasize about our dream guy. In this fantasy, our guy will be perfect in every shape and form. In part, I blame this on romantic movies. They depict the guy being…

How Terrifying Life Can Be

Watching “The Theory of Everything” the other night with my boyfriend made me realize how short life can be. Stephen Hawking–who developed motor neutron disease–had his whole life ahead of him, but it was shattered when his ability to walk and talk came to a halt. In a short time, he no longer could talk…

I’ve Finally Accepted That I’ll Always Be On The Quiet Side

I was always a quiet and shy child. It would be like pulling teeth to get me to talk. Despite being quiet, I had a decent amount of friends in elementary school. But, as I grew up, I learned that I couldn’t be non-talkative forever. It would get old. Therefore, I began talking to fill…

How To Date The Guy Who’s Sensitive

Let me tell you something about guys: they’re very sensitive. I don’t give two s**** how much your guy says he’s not because it’s untrue! No matter how much they play it off, won’t admit to it, pretend those hurtful words you just said to them didn’t sting, they’re lying. Instead of telling you how…

The Emptiness Of Loved Ones Leaving After Visiting For A Few Days

You can feel the emptiness in the air of people who were once visiting, but are no longer around. You see a deflated air mattress where someone once slept. You hear the slight sound of the fan going around. You hear dogs barking outside. But, there are no voices. There’s no one talking, laughing or…

My Constant Battle With ‘Stomach Issues’

It’s not fair. It’s just not fair. I cannot delight in the finer things in life like cheese, chocolate or ice cream. For the longest time, I haven’t been able to consume dairy products because I believe I’m lactose intolerant. In high school, I noticed I began feeling ill whenever I ate doritos or cheese-related…

Getting Rejected From A Job/Internship

“Thank you for your time and effort, but we’ve decided on another candidate.” I cannot even count how many times I’ve heard or read this sentence. It hurts very badly and I never got used to be rejected. It’s never fun to receive “that” email. I often tried to play tricks on myself and say,…

Stop Questioning and Own Up to Your Mistakes

Life is a constant battle of confusion. Should I do this? Should I do that? Am I making the right decision? Should I have done (A) instead of (B)? Could I have tried more? Could I have changed or altered the situation? Could I have helped them see the light? What the heck was I…
