I'M SORRY my depression consumed us. I'm even more sorry yours didn't. If it had we could have been over a lot sooner. Not that I wanted an end at all. But because that's where we ended up anyways, we might as well have saved us a lot of time. People talk about cherishing or focusing on the good stuff... and let me tell yah, having been outside the good stuff for a while I really wish none of it ever happened. This isn't usual for me. I like to think I'm rather the optimist. But with you babe, I spent all my optimism. This isn't to say I didn't have a blast, feel love more intensely then ever imaginable... that's the issue really. I believed you were my one, my soulmate, twinflame, kindred spirit, partner in crime, better half, companion, lover, any other names I'm missing? Someone I've been with in many lives before this one maybe... (I don't know if I believe that sort of thing anymore, but with you I did.)
This article is about different types of intelligence, commonly known as 'Multiple Intelligences': a theory designed by a psychologist and professor of Harvard University named Howard Gardner in his book 'Multiple Intelligences' in 1983.
Why you should be keeping a journal
When we're younger, we often keep a diary where we talk about our crushes, how annoying our teachers are, our parents, and our dreams. As we get older, many of us stop keeping diaries, and some of us go on to the adult version -- journaling.
Long before Kylie Jenner released a widely criticized clothing line that included a blue puffer, my mom bought a teenaged me an even bigger, blue-er, shapeless puffer.
Multipotentiality and All That Jazz
I learned a new word this week: MULTIPOTENTIALITY. Honestly, I don’t even know if it is a real word, but as I sit here and type this into a word document and it isn’t underlined in red, I am inclined to think it is. It was just a comment someone left on a social media post, and probably meant to be relatively empowering yet casual, but let me tell you- that word hit me with the weight of a thousand stars. Multipotentiality.
The Rolling of the Waves
It’d be so easy to say that tonight I just went for a dip and got some dinner, but I won’t. Feeling a little low after rediscovering the soft, warm touch of a woman last night, I take the bike and cruise down to Cua Dai with 50k in my pocket. The lady who I pay to park keeps offering me coconuts until she was shown that I had a beer in my hand. A walk in the dark along the shore shows me what quiet is. The waves crash down so gently as a breeze almost sneaks by. There’s a young couple hanging off each other's arms and laughing before they settle in a wooden lounge chair to make out under the moonlight. I find a seat nearby just hoping to be seen - hoping that a beautiful woman will stroll by and want to have a beer and a cuddle with me. The rolling of the waves settles my maladjusted thoughts that swirl in a pool of wonder. One wave comes in to meet the sand, and another follows, and another…
Should We Always Be an Open Book?
One thing that I have learned over the last several years is that I shouldn’t be too honest or vulnerable with just anyone. In the past it was nice to be able to say that I was an open book. I was to the point that people knew I’d basically answer any question. Over time people around me realized this, and would ask me all sorts of personal questions that I felt obligated to always answer. Talk about painful! I have learned that we shouldn’t be a completely open book to just everyone. As the old quote goes, “Don’t cast your pearls before swine.” That quote is appropriate when thinking about sharing your heart and soul with people. I think it’s important to seek the right people to be vulnerable with because when you do, it builds relational intimacy. I think at the end of the day we’re all seeking meaningful relationships, not heartbreak, right?
The Good Burger Quandary
“You’re sleeping in the bathtub tonight!” You don’t have to worry about any spoilers for Good Burger 2. This delightfully absurd movie is worth watching, especially if you have kids, because like the first one, it’s so bad it’s good. But this essay is not about the movie, so I won’t put the above line in context lest I spoil the joke. What’s important is that it was this movie from which the line came.

How Do You Know When You've Found the One?
1. When you are comfortable in any setting with them. I encourage all couples who are interested in furthering their relationships toward marriage to explore lots of different types of settings before tying the knot. Spend time with your significant other's extended family. Try going to the mall together. Professional sporting events. Birthday parties. Go overseas together if you can. The more places that you are able to spend time together the better because you will be able to see how your significant other responds to his or her surroundings. Ask yourself, do I admire the way my significant other takes in the world?
Their Asylum Case
In the labyrinth of immigration, where hope collides with bureaucracy, the phrase "Their Asylum Case Seems Strong" resonates as both a lifeline and a testament to resilience. It encapsulates the struggle of individuals seeking refuge, their stories etched with hardship, desperation, and an unwavering pursuit of a safer haven. Beyond the legal jargon and procedural intricacies, lies a human narrative that tugs at the heartstrings, inviting us to empathize with those navigating the treacherous path to asylum.
Her Name is Star
Dear H, Many of us look up to those who inspire us. Not me. I look down. I didn’t find my idol in a book or a newspaper, in a classroom or on the TV. I gave birth to you. You’re sitting five feet away as I type this, licking icing off your fingers from the cinnamon swirl you made yesterday, and wiping them on your blanket, eyes fixed on an inane series of YouTube shorts. Not inspiration material? Sometimes seeing all the cogs makes our heroes all the more inspiring, and you inspire me every day.
"Multipotentiality Unveiled: Embracing Limitless Potential in a World of Diverse Dreams"
"Multipotentiality Unveiled: Embracing Limitless Potential in a World of Diverse Dreams" Introduction: This week, a single word, seemingly innocuous yet laden with profound meaning, entered my vocabulary: multipotentiality. Its authenticity as a legitimate word may be questioned, but as I type it into a document without the red underline, I find myself drawn into its weightiness – a sensation akin to a thousand stars descending upon me. The genesis of this revelation was a comment on a social media post, meant to inspire and uplift, but little did I know the impact it would have on my perception of self and the diverse pursuits that have defined my life.
