A Dire Request
My Open Letter to Bernie Sanders: Bernie, Based off of the incredible efforts we have seen from you in the past, and all of the positive changes you want to make for the future, a majority of us younger individuals believe you have what it takes to save our deteriorating planet from further destruction. You have fought for minorities, marched for equality, defended those who weren't being listened to, pitched your ideas toward a better life for all, and essentially demanded that everyone is allowed to have a voice. You've done all of these amazing things for society, but what we wish for... need most from you now, is your authoritarian stand in the fight against climate change. Too many world leaders tend to make a mockery of the young climate change activists that are doing nothing but trying their hardest to save our environment, and it is unacceptable.
Go Vegan! Why Not?
Vegetarianism and veganism are two lifestyles that aren't typically or thoroughly thought about, and that's a problem. I know... the scary V words. Growing up, my parents put meat on my plate just about everyday. I had never thought about it until just recently. As one grows up, they grow apart from traditions they were used to and lifestyles that they once pursued. When you're growing up, you step back and look at the world with a realistic point of view. Riding your bike turns into driving to high school, television shows with your parents turn into hour long talks about your future, reality strikes and you're not a kid anymore. I think while one is maturing, it is critical to think about your diet. What are you putting into your body? Animals. The same things that you lay in bed with, the same creatures that you play ball with and walk in the park beside. Think about that.
For those of you who don't know much about me, or don't know who I am at all, I would tell you but I can't promise you that I truly even know who I am myself. One thing that I do know for sure is that I do a lot of disassociating - disconnection and lack of continuity between thoughts, memories, surroundings, actions, and identity. This agonizing mental disorder consumes my life.
the wind is whispering into my ear through the tiny cracks between the window and the wall knocking at my window as if it is some friendly,
The night time and all that comes with it is the hardest time for me, and for some reason, it isn't until the morning that I can find peace and comfort within the night.
A Rough Year
A rough year comes along with many fears. The fears come along with many tears. Two surgeries, one stomach disease, one flu, one near death experience, one loss of passion and self identity, and a series of mentally damaging events were the beginning. Having a relationship where you are completely and utterly happy. This is where the damage is started. Because here, your heart feels full. You feel warm, and comforted. He makes the words that those girls are throwing around like a baseball hurt less. He makes them mean nothing. Then, the sky comes falling down and your world is torn to pieces. He broke your heart. So. You move on. It’s fine.
Searching for Stability

The night of the carnival that everyone had been so anxiously waiting for, for months now, had finally come. The thrilling annual small-town carnival that my friends and family members get so hyped up for. My mother, my father, my two sisters, and their friends all piled in the car, ready to go, getting crazy-excited to ride the salt and pepper shaker and the swings. Only, there was one thing.
