Since I was eight years old, I’ve suffered from depression. Stemming from the abuse and negativity in my household since my dad remarried, my depression only grew more and more as the years passed. When my dad finally divorced my step-mom, I thought things would get better. My abuser was out of the house, I… Continue reading Depression: Where I’ve Been
Happy New Year! 2015 was a year of change for me. I started querying The First Nine. I started dating someone for the first time in my life. I moved out of my dad’s house. I moved to China. I started three more books. I decided I needed a break from writing for a bit.… Continue reading New Year. New Life. New Goals
Anxiety. We all have some of it. Anxiety over tests, over flying, over not getting homework done or waking up late for work. The list goes on, and on, and on. It’s talked to death about in psychology journals, on television, and in our daily lives. I don’t have some anxiety. I don’t experience panic and… Continue reading What if one day I can’t?
So, school. That thing. The thing that destroys all the other things. Until you leave. And then you realize that it’s the thing that you need to survive the other other thing called life. Unfortunately, until that day, we as students are stuck with homework, class, professors who don’t understand the definition of nice, and… Continue reading Is there an Elephant in the Room?

Right now, I’m sitting here thinking how easy my life would be if I could just say that. I choose you. I choose this. I choose… Continue reading Decisions, Decisions
I’m back! No more stitches, no more pain. Well, there’s some pain, but it’s not that bad, and I can type by myself and at my normal typing speed. Today I’m going to talk about something very personal to me. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. Since I was a little kid,… Continue reading Young Writing
My aunt likes to go to dance class. I think she’s insane, as it’s early in the morning and the teacher is crazy enthusiastic, but she enjoys it, and the teacher is a good dancer (he was on Dancing With the Stars and Everything). As I’m visiting my aunt, she wanted me to go with… Continue reading Dancing from Within
Finally! Sorry I’ve been gone so long. Finals were hectic, and then I had job interviews, and flying to Los Angeles, and other things like that. But I’m back to my three week schedule, with something new! A friend of mine and I are going to do this thing this summer where we read ten… Continue reading School is out and Books are in
Why do we symbolize getting an idea with a light bulb? Is it because they flash bright without warning and then stay on, never to leave you alone until they turn off and leave you in the dark? I think that’s a good explanation. After all, ideas are similar. They come from nowhere, nag… Continue reading Light Bulbs
I’ve decided I’m crazy. Despite having class at eleven the next day, my roommates and I went out at 11:50 PM to watch the total lunar eclipse, or the blood moon, until 1:46. In 32 degree weather (0 degrees Celsius). But I have to admit it was worth it. Seeing the moon slowly covered by… Continue reading Blood Moons and Writing Multiple Books
