The Black Water
About three years ago I moved to this abandoned farm out in the desert all by myself. I had lost my sister before that and everything around me seemed all too much to handle. I desperately needed to get away, from people, from the city, from anything that could disrupt the silence around me.
The Walking Dead
I know just looking at the title some people may already be shaking their heads saying I have no idea what I'm talking about, but just hear me out. I remember when I first came across the show back in 2010 when it first premiered. The showing I saw was featured in black and white and it was about five to ten minutes into the very first episode. Something about it immediately grabbed me. Now, this was around the time where I was still slightly terrified of all things horror but started coming around on the genre.
A Magical Night
There is nothing like so effortlessly gliding through the cold and crisp air on a cold afternoon in the middle of the winter. At least I would imagine there wouldn’t be. I actually hated the winter which is ironic because I was born during the winter in one of the coldest places in the country. But one day something made me rethink my feelings about the often hated season.
The Loss of a Loved One
I remember one night, I was running in a dream. I’m not sure how I knew it was a dream but somehow I just knew. Or at least I had desperately hoped it was. I was running down a white hall as fast as I could. Having this sense of panic in this pit of my stomach, my feet were barely able to keep up with my legs and how fast they were moving.
What I learned from 2020
So it's that time of year again, when we reflect on the previous year and set goals for ourselves for the upcoming one. Let's just say I had a lot to think about with this. First off my 2020 was actually pretty good all things considered, I know a lot of people had to face many hardships last year, and I had my own that I had to endure, but on a scale of 1 to 10, it was a solid 9, maybe even better than that. Now I don't say this to brag or to denote all the people that had suffered during the pandemic. I just say it to help tell this story and because it was my experience. In 2020 not only did I start talking to and dating the love of my life, but we got to spend a lot of precious time together. Time I don't know that I would've had if I had been working all these months during covid. And that being said comes goal #1: To simply be better. Let me explain, in all the time I have spent with this amazing man I have learned a lot about myself, just from being stuck inside for almost a full year, but we also got to talk, a lot, and it was really eyeopening. And one humongous thing I learned, even though I pride myself on being a good person, he's an even better one, and it just reminds me that no matter what, I can still work to be even better of a person than I am now. Thanks, babe!
An Airport Christmas
I was so excited. It was my first time in five years going to see my family for Christmas and I was bringing my boyfriend for the first time to meet my family. Usually, I would be caught up in work and not able to go home for the holidays. But I finally had the time off and the man of my dreams to spend the holiday with, along with my family. It was already going to be the best Christmas ever. And it came at the best time, my grandfather had been really sick about a month ago and the rest of my family were very concerned about his health. So on top of just wanting to see my family for this major holiday, there was a chance it would be the last Christmas I would get to spend with my grandfather. I think it goes without saying, that with all that in mind, Christmas this year had to be perfect, no exceptions.
Halloween in a Graveyard
I didn't understand why he would want to take me there. At the time I thought it was a little weird; "But it will be fun!" is what he said. Yes I myself am always up for some Halloween fun...but spending the night in a graveyard, well I thought that was taking things a bit too far.
Beth and Sarah
"Oh, it's that time, look at what came in the mail for you!" "Nooooo. No no no-no-no. How did they find my address?" "Okay, you realize it's just your high school reunion right? Your acting like the mafia is out to get you and they sent you a note to say they're coming." Sarah chuckles to herself while looking at her girlfriend in awe.
