Why Writing?

It isn’t unusual for people to ask me what I love to do, and of course, I respond with “writing or literature”, and it is even more common for people to ask me why. And truth is, there are so many reasons why I right, that I don’t even realize them half the time. The…

New Beginnings

If you’ve been keeping up with my posts, then you know I have a tendency to constantly explain how badly I want and need a new beginning. What I didn’t realize though, is that you don’t get a new beginning. You get new beginnings. You can’t start completely over, forgetting your past and who you…

8th Grade Ending

Middle school is coming to a close for me. In just 13 days, I will never attend another middle school. As hard as these past few years have been, and as much as I have wanted to leave them behind, I can’t help but miss some of the memories already. I have had some amazing…

Frontyard Photoshoot

Where I live, tremendous-weather-mood-swings are an everyday thing. Thursday, my little sister Ellie and I were lucky enough to find ourselves in a perfect weather day, which are very rare.
