A chaotic room of stories. My curiosities lead me in all types of directions, creating a chaotic writing pathway. I want this place to be for experimenting, improving my craft, and sharing new ideas with anyone willing to read them.
Learning How to Be Okay with Failure
Over the years I have realized that the biggest person who gets in my way is my own self. My comfort zone has kept me from going out and doing adventurous things that I later regretted not doing. When I try and fail at something it usually ends in me quitting altogether due to sheer embarrassment. Because of this, I have lost opportunities that would have put me on a different path if I had taken them. I am happy with where I am today and don’t necessarily regret my decisions but they have made me learn a huge life truth; failure is not a bad thing.
The Safe Sex Talk They Should Have Given in School
I don’t know what you were taught in school or if you were taught anything at all, but even as a teenager I was extremely aware of how ridiculous sex education was. What is even more ridiculous is the fact that some schools don’t even discuss it or that they are even allowing calling the class sex education. While I might not condone minors engaging in sexual activity it does not change the fact that they do it with or without permission.
The Benefits Coconut Water Has on Your Skin
Paradise is a word that has one definition but can still mean something different to each individual. A common theme is sitting on a tropical beach while hearing the rush of waves hit the shore. You’re sitting on a sandy towel, an umbrella giving slight shade, and a coconut with a straw held in one hand (SPF in the other).

Have We Lost the Meaning Behind Independence Day?Top Story - June 2018
Fireworks have never been my favorite thing in the world. They are loud and potentially could blow my hand off or worse. My brother, on the other hand, loves fireworks like most Americans do. People shell out thousands of dollars to blow up all the products within 24 hours. Most kids these days only know this as one day: the 4th of July. We have stopped calling the holiday what it actually is to the point we now communicate the day with just that; the day it is.
Why We Need To Stop Using the Term 'Daddy Issues'
My father is a sociopath; maybe not clinically proven as such but all the traits and qualities of a sociopath, well, my father has had since a young boy. He was emotionally and physically abusive to me and my family for 17 long years until he walked out on us. Then one day he walked back in expecting us to worship him and has had a stalking relationship ever since.
Being Comfortable Talking About Intercourse
“I’m so glad I have you to talk to about this, no one ever wants to talk about their sex life, so I don’t know if this is wrong or not,” a friend commented in a car ride after a long discussion about a pain she was feeling during intercourse. With a nurse for a mother, maybe talking about uncomfortable topics has become comfortable. Maybe it is because I was raised in a very open communicative environment. Either way, society has a problem with keeping sex (and sex discussions) behind closed doors.
101 on Living a Self Care Lifestyle
Life is chaos. This is not me trying to be deep or poetic; this is me being simply real with you. The list of things we have to worry about in life could fill an entire planet (for each of us!). All the choices we have to make, the chores and errands we have to accomplish, and all the emotions that bump around in our mind makes each and every individual a hero in my eyes! Being a hero requires us to do so much for others that we sometimes forget the most important person in our lives: ourselves.
How to Help a Partner Who Has Anxiety Disorder
From firsthand experience, I can tell you anxiety is not a laughing matter. I used to think that anxiety and depression were all just a state of mind; that you just weren’t trying hard enough to be happy. Not only is that incredibly rude of me to think, but it was incredibly naïve. The first time I had a panic attack I truly thought my heart was going to burst through my chest. It felt like I had just run a marathon while being suffocated at the same time.
How To Be a Decent Human Being
Seems pretty simple right? Well I have at least 20 experiences to say otherwise. With all the chaos going on in the world today it’s as if people kind of lost what it means to be a nice person (or maybe they are being that way on purpose?). Either way, this post is a refresher for everyone. Even I have days where I forget how simple acts of kindness can go a long way. If you are reading this thinking “these are stupid, no one cares,” well then you might as well put yourself in the bad egg category.
My Not-So-Future Husband
This is the horrific recap of #MyWorstDate in all its terrifying glory. *** High school is filled with dreadful memories and embarrassing hiccups in judgment. When it comes to having a high school crush, all judgment is thrown out the window. Sure, he might have a bad rap and every grown-up within a 20-mile range hates him, but he is THE ONE. Right? After months of trying to get into his clique of friends and spending hours trying to look perfect for a chance encounter in the hallways between classes he finally did it. He asked me out on an actual date.
