Low-level Ick That Turned Incredible
To be sure, some of our idiosyncrasies may be less than endearing, but when they turn out to be a benefit, try not to gloat.
I was pretty dark, even for a black kid, and the Texas sun I grew up playing in didn’t move me any closer to what the TV and the magazines said was beautiful. In elementary school, I was the constant subject of children’s jokes that began, “You’re so black that…”
In Search of Reflection
I don't think we ever discover who we are. Identity is a never-ending book that continues to write new chapters as we experience life, and your story only ends when the pen is set down. When your story reaches a close, only you can describe everything. But there's no one word to sum up the life you lived and who you were. Others can title your story as they please and leave reviews, but you wrote every word of your story. So, on that last page, who do you think you'll be in your story? Did you become this person, or did you let this character you wanted to be, define where the story was headed?
Hospitals Do Not Care About Nurses and Why Nurses Don´t Quit
I read this quote the other day, and it hit home. There’s not a shortage of nurses; there’s a shortage of nurses who aren’t willing to put up with the bullshit any longer.
Majick Bum Majick Bum, Sit on the toilit, Tap three times, Sparckles tollit seat. Wand in hand, the girl continued her magic tutorial, guiding me through the basics of simple witchcraft.
Mental Healthcare in America
The state of the mental health system in America is a mess. I mean we know this, how could we not? But I'm going to talk about my experience over the past few months.
Happy 100 Posts (Stories, Poems, lives lived?)
Hello All, To celebrate my 100th story on Vocal I have decided I would do something a little different than my usual fiction. So what could be more different than my normal stuff than to write a purely non-fiction piece?
I Will Go Skimming, No More!
Dear People That I Have Subscribed to, Some of you may notice that I have taken a little break from publishing regularly on Vocal recently. I am hoping this will serve as a good explanation as to why.
Most recently published stories in Confessions.
I have several other items in my head right now that need attention: bills; exams to give, create and mark; trips home to plan (tickets are an easy click away); family dramas (better for another piece); other concerns… I wish I could focus on something else right now. I wish that life made some sort of sense so that this would not hurt the way it does. But that is the problem with hope and that eternal spring… Life often provides you with nothing but cold reality in the form of news that takes the wind out of your sails and crushes your heart.
The Enigma of Ashwin Manor
The ancient manor of Ashwin stood silhouetted against the twilight sky, its imposing façade shrouded in an aura of mystery and intrigue. Rumors swirled around the manor, tales of a tragic past, of hidden treasures, and of a malevolent spirit that haunted its halls. Yet, for young Emily Sinclair, the allure of the manor was irresistible. She had always been fascinated by the stories of Ashwin, and when she inherited the estate from a distant relative, she felt an inexplicable pull towards it.
Basket of Red Flags.
People come and go in life, and that’s alright- that’s part of life. The lessons and experiences we have gained from those people are what matters the most. Not every person you encounter will be a great lesson or experience. That is the whole point of people coming and going?
Answering The Call
This challenge... Identity. It has such an open prompt to write and man, that can be dangerous for some of us. Diving into the thought process of who we are can be complicated. Because really... what is your identity? Is it your name? Is it your beliefs and core lifestyle? Is it who you fight to be? We look at other human beings every day, and we introduce ourselves to each other simply by our name. And that name is who we now associate other human beings out there.
I've felt like my musical tastes have been very boring and predictable this year. I've sort of gravitated towards 90's Adult Contemporary this year, because it connects me with the past in a way that I needed. Reminds me of sitting around listening to music with my mom and Josh. Learning new artists, playing the radio game, and generally just sort of hanging out.
When I Heard about this Identity challenge, I thought to myself "This is so perfect" as I had just gone through my 30th birthday and it made me reflect on things a little deeper than usual. I opened up my journal and the blank page nearly mocked me, since I had so much, I wanted to write down.
