So, I'm a junior in high school right now, and as you know, college is beginning to loom across the horizon, blocking my sight and somehow breathing down my neck the deadlines I'm up against. I figured that I should do the least inventive thing and blog my way out of here. I am terrible … Continue reading College Admissions Process- It Starts Now.
I write this post feeling slightly sorrowful for myself and a wee bit lost in the world. I guess it is normal to feel like that, but I've been feeling like I don't have many close friends at all. I'm not sure why, honestly, but I'll explain it as I go. I moved across the … Continue reading Confession/Thoughtstream: I Don’t Have Many Friends IRL.
Sometimes you feel this hollowness in your chest, something you can't describe. Like you know that this moment, in the story of you, will be remembered- most of the time, because you did something wrong, you hurt someone you cared about.

A second glance through told me that I … Continue reading Second Blogged Thoughtstream: On Birthdays…
Once again, in English 1117, I was required to write up an essay. Here it is; In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight! You’ve missed out on the American experience if you aren’t able to place those iconic lyrics where they belong. Lion King was what Hamlet would turn out if … Continue reading The Not-So Mighty Jungle.
Can you ever truly figure out who you are as a person? I don't mean this in a strange, thoughtful way- I am dead serious. I spent most of my summer arguing over the the entire Theseus' ship idea- is Theseus' ship always his ship? Or does that change? I learnt one thing from that; … Continue reading First Blogged Thoughtstream.
Hey there, stranger! My English 1117 teacher gave me a prompt to write about and it made me really think about something I just went through. Please leave your comments behind and like and review.

Being a teenage girl on social media, like everyone in the world says, really does suck. There's always this external force that tempts you to appear happy and perfect; like you have a better life than those of all your other friends.
