I’m A Writer, Part Two

I started writing at a really young age. I remember my teachers from elementary school submitting my assignments for contests that were held throughout the school year, and finding my work on the walls, in different halls. I always had a vivid imagination, consumed with the ideas of magic and grandeur, life always moving on and throwing you around. I started out as a little girl with a lot of things to think about and say, and paper just seemed to be the perfect place to do that. Continue reading “I’m A Writer, Part Two”

A 20-Something Reject

The Liebster Award

What is the Liebster Award exactly? Well, I didn’t know, either, so I did some quick research. Turns out, it’s a huge thing that bloggers do to promote other bloggers—which, in my opinion, is super sweet. It gives everyone involved an equal opportunity to find more content to read, and to connect with others in the blogging community. And what kind of blogger wouldn’t want that?

Daydreaming And Confused

You know what’s a weird feeling? Thinking about one event for so long that you’re no longer sure if it ever actually happened, or if it was just a dream. Continue reading “Daydreaming And Confused”
