Just a teen with a dream of travelling and writing for the rest of my life (but if I'm being realistic, maybe just a few trips a year as a journalism teacher :))
It's Because He Loves Me, Right?
Red wine poured on the hardwood floor. I look down at the mess, tears running down my face. Fear kept me from even flinching.
Make a Mess and Clean It Up
Clothes. Drawers. Desks. Books. Blankets. Drag them all out and toss them outside of your room. That sounds like a horrible mess waiting to happen, doesn't it? That is what you need to do in order to reach an organized room. Why would you make a mess in the first place if you wanted that, though?
A Letter To Myself and You
Oh, you poor thing. This stream of sadness and regret all started when you went to the basketball games on Saturday. Your best friend picked you up early in the morning and drove twenty minutes to another town just to cheer on your boy's basketball team. Even though you had a smidge of doubt, deep down you knew they would win the first game of the day.
You Don't Have To Clean Your House
I woke up earlier than most people on this Sunday morning. Around 12 pm, I headed to TJ Maxx to return a mattress pad. I bought a new blanket from Target. I got some food for me, my sister, and my aunt. I came back home and cleaned my truck for at least an hour. My energy was drained and I had plenty of time to relax.
For the TV Show Binger
The amount of TV shows available is astonishing. I could open Netflix or Hulu right now and there would be hundreds of options at my fingertips. This is the best part about technology, but also the most daunting.
Meet Vivien Thomas and the BT(T) Shunt
For a long time, black innovators, artists, and entrepreneurs have accomplished amazing feats, yet never get recognized for them. I'm sure you can guess why.
The Stars Aligned And They Were Correct (For the Most Part)
My middle school self was obsessed with astrology. As soon as I met someone and became acquaintances with them, I would ask them their zodiac sign just to see if they matched their given traits. Sadly, I have grown out of the astrology phase and have forgotten the basics of it. I can barely even remember my own traits for my zodiac.
Due to Covid-19, a lot of schools have gone completely virtual or hybrid. In my opinion, those are the best options for students to have in order to eliminate the chances of contracting Covid-19 and spreading it amongst their peers.
