I'm a converse-wearing, jeep-driving, music-loving teenager just tryin' to find my way
Interests: I still blow bubbles in my drink through the straw. I bruise like a cantalope. I'm always humming. I'm naive, and I know it. I'm always in the mood for some sour patch kids. I'm a slow driver and a slow eater, sorry. I couldn't go a day without music. I can't whistle. I'm shy, but that doesn't mean I'm unable to speak. I could eat a grilled cheese everyday of my life. I need my Savior.

BEFORE [it kills me to see you, it kills me not to. it kills me to remember, it kills me to forget] I'm scared of becoming. It's like a delicate ball of yarn, If I mess with it too much it'll just frazzle apart. It's easy to drop, so soft... Continue reading

Reunions Because we don't have to go through the beginnings. It's the same as the same has always been. I've realized I've become even more comfortable too. I'll pass up my usual hinderance, hesitation, "I don't cares" and just say "yes." He tugs at my hand because he knows I'll... Continue reading

I forgot how great it feels to laugh until your stomach hurts. That joyful pain in your cheeks mixed with all the peeps and pipes of eveyrone's cackles. It was never where we were going, it was the ride there. Hey I heard you were a wild one :) But... Continue reading

"...through your eyes, there's a choir singin" -Lovedrug It's a peaceful happy that can't be beat. Because it's not just about when our eyes search and meet in a crowd or the delicate swift of our sleeves skimming or even when my name leaves his lips. It's the war that... Continue reading

Travels It's weird. Because when it comes to me, Nothing's changed. I'm still the same. I've still got a calm dark blue on my toenails and that cross ring on the same finger and a twiddling hum in my thoughts. I've still got my crazy wispy curls and an awkward... Continue reading

I guess I'm just being stupid. Ugh. But you know, being guarded is overrated. Holding back, acting tentative and because of others? It just seems...scared. I'm not asking for a lifetime of happinness or a white house with blue shutters and a wrap around porch I'm not asking for anything... Continue reading

Just a little poem I wrote about being a frosh haha We moved in with jitters And held our hands up to cover our ears. Those red-shirted people at the door Kept yelling, “Welcome to the next four years!” Nervous smiles enveloped our faces As we tried to remember all... Continue reading

"Butterflies?" she asks me with a giggle. Some people say their roommates are a disaster but for me, it's been the exact opposite. We're walking-skipping slowly to a small mexican place across the street and I'm carefree. Feelin-good-cause-tomorrow's-friday kind of deal. Me and Alison are having a grand old time,...

Who knew? Who knew things could literally change in a split second. Drastically change. Like turned upside down and spun three times. But you know what? It's all good because I had a great encounter with a very sweet, green apple. **** I felt stupid. I felt stupid in my... Continue reading

It's that simple harmonica. It's that soft strumming of guitar I hear basically anywhere. It's that cute smile. It's that refreshing wind at night, running though my hair and veins and thoughts. It's meeting people. It's seeing a lot of red and blue. It's being happy. It's buying a futon... Continue reading

I guess I'd put it under the "mixed feelings" category. Perhaps a "get over yourself" folder. Or maybe some "what the heck is going on" sticky notes. It's difficult to define and I'm pretty sure the whole thing in itself will be the same way for the next couple of... Continue reading
