Disciple of the damned.

Within our lives, we are continuously basing our actions off of the opinion or guidance of others. As children we are told what to do with the hope of us all growing up to be strong and obedient citizens of society. It has been shown that with a lack of guidance in our lives, we…

Love at your disposal.

Love within the city seems to be more of a myth than Santa Claus. It seems as if we are all running in circles looking for “the one” that we seem to miss the true point of it all. Every day as you walk down the city scape, you pass hundreds of potential suitors waiting…

Stress leads to early alcoholism and grey hair.

Stress management has become something within my life that is growing to be quite difficult to handle. It seems as if this is a unified problem in which people my age are actively facing, yet we really have no one to blame but ourselves. Stress can be bought on by a variety of factors such…

Listen with your eyes.

Listen with your eyes and you will hear all. Within our young lives we are given plenty of opportunities to listen; but it is not until we learn to see with our eyes that we are opened to the truth. A train in which we are all capable of, yet very few have is the…

Live like a Cockroach.

The cockroach is one of the oldest living species on the planet. With it’s hard shell and rather disgusting outward appearance, the bug is dated back to the prehistoric ages. One may wonder how these bottom dweller creatures have lasted all these years, but the answer is rather simple…change and adaptation. Within our lives, change is something…

Turning pain into words.

Dressed in sweatpants and an oversized University sweater, I lay upon my couch and watch the Grammys with my mother. It has been a very difficult 24 hours for me and I did not know if I could have survived it. As I left his apartment, I was left speechless by not only what was…

Amelioration & the rise from The Cave.

As I sit at my kitchen table and watch the snow flurries glide past my balcony, I am left speechless over the events of the morning. As it so happens, once you begin to publish your feeling onto the internet they are easily accessible by everyone… everyone including “Him”. He has now read my blog,…

One scent for a story.

Do you know the feeling where you you breathe in, and recognize a certain scent that is in the air? I do not know what this is or how it is done, but your brain recalls this scent and takes you back to a moment within your life where you first came in contact with…

Glimmers of light & Double stuffed Oreos.

I am not sure if I am the only university student out there who feels lost, but I am currently on a train to nowhere. Seated cross legged on my bed scanning through two of the required readings I need to finish, I feel as if I am at a sense of loss. It truly…

To cease and to end.

Closure, the act of finding peace within a situation. Closure is definitely an important aspect of letting go, for it is rather impossible to fully let go without achieving some form of settlement. Closure provides a denouement for any situation, as it provides you with the answers to questions that have been nagging at your…

High rises and skylines.

Last night I had the sudden urge to head home. I made the walk to the city train station, purchased a ticket and hopped on board. This was my first time taking the train since moving to the city. As riding, I learned that I am absolutely thankful that I am no longer commuting. Upon…
