A Long Overdue Update

I haven’t updated my blog in a while. I was going to say I haven’t written in while, but it occurred to me that I have, for people and for other websites. But it feels like all of those are nothing when I look back to the last time I updated this blog; almost as… Continue reading A Long Overdue Update

WORDS

I have been thinking about words lately. About how much power they have: to empower or dishearten; spread happiness or despair; create or destroy.

SENIOR YEAR CHRONICLES: UNCERTAINTY

One fact about senior year is, no matter how hard you try to avoid them, thoughts of life after school always find a way of making their presence felt.
