Graduation

We took so many pictures, of marching to Pomp and Circumstance. Walking down to accept our diplomas. Throwing our royal blue caps in the air. And just like that, we are no longer children. To ourselves maybe, but not to those watching. Truly, I think we’re all kinda lost. We don’t know where we’re heading, … More Graduation

Welcome

welcome to high school. this is a place where no one looks forward to life anymore. where everyone has senioritis and bored faces and we all just go through the motions. a place where people contemplate suicide daily, because no matter how beautiful their lives are, their minds are messes. where you’re labeled a “slut” … More Welcome

Inception

Change is difficult. It is also an inevitable, chaotic, and beautiful facet of life. I’ve never experienced so much at one time before, and I don’t know how to handle it or the overwhelming emotions that come with the different experiences.
