Hey guys, I am the small town girl that moved to NYC to follow her dreams to be a writer.
Finals week! The hardest week of a college student's life. The week that drives you mad. When I say mad. I mean crazy. Full on crazy. We are stressed beyond our limits and try our best to be okay, but really we are not okay until this week is over and our summer has officially started.
Random Shoes On The Subway
Have you ever just taken photos of shoes that are being worn by people on the subway? I find it very interesting what type of shoes someone wears. It tells a story that no one knows but the owner. It shows where they have been, how much they work, how far they go, how much money they have, how much they value brands and much more. If you really think about it, it is amazing to know all the stories a shoe can tell.
As the waves crashed near our feet, I looked at the soaking wet girl that I had just saved. I had no idea who she was or how she ended up in the harsh current of that river. All I knew was I had to save her and I didn't want to let her go. I didn't understand why, but there was this connection. A connection I had never experienced before, but one I knew I could not lose.
The river flowed faster and faster the cold seeping down to my core. I was out of hope. There was no way I could possibly survive this! I knew I shouldn't have gone on that trail at night by myself. I should have known that it would be flooded at the end with the current of the river. I should have known!
Going Home For The Weekend
I have been going to college in NYC for the past few months and for the first time in my life have been more than a mile from my family. Instead of choosing to go to an easy college that was closer to home, I chose to go to the hardest college I got into that just so happened to be over 900 miles away.
13 years ago I followed my dad into a door. Behind this door there were multiple dogs of all ages barking and crying. They wanted to be adopted and have their own home. They wanted to be loved by someone that would care for them and become their best friend.
Feeling The Covid Blues??
Let's be honest. Covid is taking way too long to be over and we still have so much more to go through until we are back to some kind of normal. I truthfully don't think normal could ever be the same. We have all been through too much to be the same or do the same things we used to do. If our lives do go back to the way they used to be, then at least out mindset will be different.
You Can Fight The Pain!!
In the depths of the darkness depression knocks on the door, slowly pushing it open by force into the many tracks of your life. The pain is damaging, life threatening.
