M.V.P

Most of us grow up with someone look up to: someone we admire for all the things they do for us, or the things they’ve done for others, or for accomplishing things that we want for ourselves. I just happen to be so lucky to have that someone be a person that has not only been in and around my life forever, but also help raise me.

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.

Some things just click for us, and we take a second (whether it be in that moment, or afterwards), to think about the best things in life. Why do we go through tough times, even when it feels like they’ll never end?

Six Months Down

2017 has been an interesting year so far, to say the least. For one thing, it’s been flying right before my very eyes. I’ve been told that as you get older, the years seem to get shorter. Whoever told me that (sorry, I can’t remember who did) was so right.
