An Old Draft.

There was sorrow in her presence or maybe there was just something sad about her. It hung over her head as she walked by and followed her every step. It lived off of her and she embodied it. Sorrow so sad that it took all of the air out of the room and replaced it…

L.L.S

I have lost. I have lost in ways that words can’t capture and songs cannot soothe. I have felt loss bigger than nations and governments who have stumbled and crumbled from war or starvation or at the hands of their own leader. I have lost something so precious and pure and rare that diamonds nor…

This is my solitude. I am confined to this space and cannot seem to break the shackles. This is my prison. I have locked myself behind these walls for so long that I forgot that I own a key. Well, I owned a key. I once had the ability to let myself out, but I have become…

You’re a piece of work.

I am a complicated masterpiece. To some I am just a simple piece with asymmetrical lines and colors they do not recognize. To some I am a piece of confusion with lines that have no meaning and colors that hold no potential. People that call themselves artists glance at me and try to sum me…

Two months ago, everything changed in my life. I experienced a ton of loss and then I lost some more. While others were enjoying their holidays and bringing in the New Year with their loved ones, I was burying my father and making plans for two major changes in my life. I had so much…

And They Said Blondes Have More Fun

Life is all about making quick, dramatic, drastic, crazy decisions and hoping you do not regret it in the morning. The other night, me and my friends got up the courage to dye our hair. Well, correction; we got up the courage to highlight each other’s hair. So while I was at work, they brought…

Silence

I have moments when I want to revert back into my shell because the world is not the place I want to be at the moment. These moments occur when I pile up all my emotions and never say anything. I usually do this when I know that what I have to say is hurtful…

Back to the (new) Basics

College has made me lazy. Lazy in the sense that my hair suffers but not my grades. I recently had to cut a few inches off because I was not taking care of it the way that I used to. I was not upset, because I am definitely scissor happy; but I was disappointed that…

My Puff

My favorite go to style that I can always count on is the puff. It’s simple and easy to manage. It also keeps my hair stretched for later on when I want to style it later on. I create a high puff by pushing the back of the stretchy headband up while the front stays…

One Step Closer

We have finally set a date. It was weird having people come up and ask when was the wedding when we had just got engaged but now I can finally have an answer. We set a date close only because it was what we have always wanted. Being engaged has really forced me to grow…
