My ode to the beauty of solitude

My ode to the beauty of solitude

I am constantly composing in my mind. Sentences. Images. Fitting stories together in the quiet of my skull. If you’ve ever wondered why I like to be alone all the time it’s because when I am alone I can think. And thinking to me is like what water is to our bodies. It keeps me […]

What I read….

So this year has been terrible for me reading wise. I am no where close to my #95books challenge, like I’m talking I’m only at 20 (!!!!). There are only a few months left in the year and I will endeavour to read hopefully ten more but still, that will make this the worst reading […]

When I grow up

You know what’s kinda cool? I realized today that I am doing the things that I dreamed I would be doing when I grew up. I always wanted (secretly) to be a writer but I thought because I was so bad at spelling and grammar that it was an impossible dream. Getting back essays with […]

One small thing

One small thing

So I’ve decided something. The only way that I am going to be able to do the things that I want is to just start doing them. For some reason I had this belief that everything has to be perfect before I can start something. But I am just starting to realize how ridiculous that […]
