I am 27 and nothing is going according to plan. The last few years have had a lot of ups and downs as I navigate through a quarter life crisis.

In The Kitchen
Trigger Warning: Mentions of Self Harm I look to the left and I look to the right. Around me were rows and rows of people and plastic folded chairs in a school gymnasium. At the front there was a stage. We had all received the same text message on our phone to report here. It was abnormal that a message like that was sent with such urgency but the room was set up already. Everyone was wondering why we were here.
Above the World but Mindful of Me
TW: Suicide Dear Carleigh, You will never read this unless some miracle happens and we get back together, but I do not see that happening. I bought this journal to fill its pages with everything I want to say to you. I find myself wanting to tell you everything. I always have, you brought new ideas into my world and I am working on being a better person because of you. I hoped that you would have chosen me over your ex because I always pushed you to be a better version of yourself and toward your dreams. I hoped that there were more reasons to choose me but I guess there wasn’t, so here I am alone. Alone and reminded me that I am too broken, that I am writing in a journal because I am too much and too emotional. That I finally broke down that barrier too late and now spread open with no defenses and my feelings bleeding all over the place…
Top 20 Questions and Comments that I have heard after telling people I was Asexual.
I loath telling people I am an Asexual or Ace for short because most people do not understand it or ask me really stupid questions or make stupid comments. So in honor of pride month, I have decided to write all the stupid things that people have said to me when I have told them that I am an Ace and my internal responses. My experiences and responses are in no way indicative of all Aces and many of these questions are actually very hurtful and invalidating. So lets begin with my least favorite and the rest are in no particular order.
The Better Days Go To Boston
COVID-19 came in like a freight train and sent us all back to our homes. We are all now sick and tired of being trapped in our homes. We want to be free to live our lives, to go where we want and do what we want. However, the reality is the better days will not be here for a very long time.
Be Prepared to Protest because We Have to Speak Up For The Earth
America is a lot of things but it is also the place where if you do not like a law or if something is happening that you do not agree with then you can change it. This is an amazing thing when the government or business overstep and hurt American people.
Shout Out to My Ex
We have all heard the song Shout Out to My Ex by Little Mix. I can honestly say that we have all felt that in our lives. We all want to shove it to our ex and tell them I am so much better without you. The reality is in our heartbreak, we feel our anger like everything is out of our control and this is something that we can control we can get back at them. We can show them that they are missing out on the best thing that has ever happened to them. The reality is we are still hurting from them and we are still not over them. As long as we are still doing things for them they have power over us.
Gaylist: You might be in quartine but your Pride doesn't have to be
The quarantine has caused many college students to go home to their families. For many people in the LGBTQ+ community, they have gone home to families that do not support them after they have embraced who they are. In some cases, teens are quarantined with parents who do not support them as they are still asking questions and figuring out who they are.
Arcturus: The True Blue Hippie Van that Started at Ikea and Brought Happiness.
The true blue hippie van that started at Ikea. A little while ago I wrote an article about my 1973 VW bus titled Ikea, The Stars, and a Dying Dream. However, the dream is still living and has yet to die.
