Existing in Fear

Truthfully, I have plenty of fears; that’s why I don’t do much of anything. I fear failure and loss and impairment. And a lot of the time, that’s the number one thing that I hate about myself. I let the part of me that lives in fear take care of the part that craves recklessness and adventure. The stick-in-the-mud would rather I exist in a safe, comfortable state, than actually, really live, and deal with the lows that are sure to follow. Continue reading “Existing in Fear”

The Way I Understand Things

In school, we all are forced to learn in similar ways, if not in the same exact way. And for a bunch of us, the way we are normally taught doesn’t help as well as another method would. Continue reading “The Way I Understand Things”

Blast From The Past, Wish For The Future

One of my favorite movies growing up was this one called Crossroads.

(I know that’s a bad excuse, but oh well.)  Continue reading “Uncomfortably Me”

Turns out, it’s a huge thing that bloggers do to promote other bloggers—which, in my opinion, is super sweet.

Thankful For You

One thing that you really need to understand about me is how protective I am when it comes to family—specifically my immediate family. The way I see it is that I can shit on them whenever I want to, because it’s my relationship with them, and I’ve seen just about every side of each and every one of them, to the point where I know them probably a little better than they know themselves.

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”
