Writing from the heart about love, life, and everything in between.

love is a four-letter word
While I was a little girl, I was obsessed with the idea of true love. I had always daydreamed of white horses and bouquets of roses; my prince coming to rescue me.
Dear Mom, I know things are tense between us, but I hope that you know how much I love you. Having children at a young age changes you in ways I did not know until I had my very own two kids.
I hope that you find this post when you're lonely and in need of a friend. There are so many beautiful ways to express your love for someone. Writing is one of them. There is so much power behind words and I have always loved that. You can gently caress someone with loving words or cut them very deeply.
Dear Doctor Who,
Dear Doctor Who, Years have flown by us. I have tried to write you so many letters over the years. It feels like just yesterday that I was sitting beside my awkward high school best friend. I always want to say more than 'hello' to you whenever I run into you. I wonder if you drink Code Red Mountain Dew like it is your morning coffee. As I sit here and write you this letter, my own cup has gone cold.
Oh man, do I ever have a story to tell about my cat named Steve. We always had a strict no-pet policy growing up. Gerbil? Nope. Cat? Nope. Dog? Nope. We did have a few pet fish in a large tank for a while until they all somehow mysteriously died. My stepfather was not a fan of animals unless they could be outside on the farm.
How Nintendo Saved My Life
Growing up as a child, I was always fascinated with Nintendo, specifically the Legend of Zelda franchise. I've always loved the storyline behind video game plots. In my childlike mind, I used to compare it to a high-quality movie that you could control. I started gaming out young, sitting beside my mother as she would play different games on our good ole trustworthy GameCube such as Harvest Moon, Final Fantasy, and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. I loved watching my mom play her video games in the late quiet of the night.
Dear Majora, I've been struggling with my words after your death for a very long time. Things have been worse for me since my mother stole a little bit of the peace I had made with your suicide.
Musings of a Recently Single Mother
Why is dating a single mom considered to be an achievement for some men? Just because a woman has children, she is automatically seen as a caregiver, or wifey material which does not make sense to me. I even chose to ask a male friend of mine about this.
