Sooo, I don’t normally read the “WordPress News” emails I get on a regular but this article caught my eye & I decided to investigate. To Jenny: Mrs. Bloggess, extraordinaire, thank you for giving me my daily “big laugh”… From the time I started reading your articles I knew I liked you right away. Your… Read More The Bloggess
There are two glasses in front of me, both half empty & containing different substances. One contains the sweetest juice ever, but the aftertaste is bitter & raw. The other contains something toxic… Addictive. And I’m sipping from them both.
I’m 19 years of age, soon coming to the end of my teenage years. For every single year of my life, I’ve learnt something that has shaped me into the person I am today. I can honestly say though that I’ve learnt the MOST about life in the past 2 years. This past year gone especially, I’ve… Read More These Days…

I’ve accepted the fact that I’m a strange individual… who listens to ‘Barbra Streisand’ on repeat (it never gets old!) when I should be sleeping. That’s another thing I’ve accepted… Sleep isn’t my thing anymore. At a point in time it was… I could sleep for hours. Now it seems like once I’m occupied with… Read More Insomni-Allie

I use it religiously when I’m writing. I keep a lot of tabs opened & pinned. (the… Read More 7 random things about my online time
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t in the mood to post anything these past 2 days & I’m not pleased with my current site stats -_- *thumbs down* but I have been productive though! I’ve been working on a few projects – a personal one & one for a group assignment for one of my classes.… Read More Thurs-Fri-Saturday. 🙂
This is strange. Really strange. Today I learned how to psyche myself into an overly calm state of mind. I can’t say it lasted because my thoughts are racing right now but I did tell myself to chill & I just did. Currently I’m thinking about my “endless possibilities” for change. I’m feeling really strange… Read More Cool, calm & collective Wednesday.

I was just telling a friend about how I prefer talking to strangers over my acquaintances. I really do though… To me, I always gain more out of a conversation with a complete random. Strangers don’t know me personally [obviously, they’re strangers!] so they can’t judge me. Like Kendel Hippolyte said [& I often quote]… Read More I like Strangers.
Midnight passion, soulful reaction, my heartbeat tells my story… Convoluted mental intrusions, they attack & they wound me… Reasoning of right & wrong, in poem & in song come pouring… Then the scenes in subdued tones invade my mind, exploring… A light comes from behind closed blinds that only what’s beyond me can see… With… Read More Over-thinking in Dormancy; What I Mean By “My Thoughts Woke Me Up”

Now I personally think being comfortable keeps people in the right frame of… Read More COMFORT RANT!
You know when, every once in a while some random person decides to hit you up & you’re honestly NOT in the mood to speak to them… soooo you either ignore them or respond coldly, complaining about how they annoy you so much ? Well… sometimes that person just wants someone to talk to… You… Read More Talking to Strangers…
Assumptions can kill. They drill negative holes into our minds & hearts, mentally DESTROYING our happiness, faith & peace of mind. It’s crazy the effect a prolonged thought can have on a person. Our brains have a way of over-exaggerating every thought and feeling, rendering us humans weak to 1. our perceptions & 2. our suspicions.… Read More Assumptions, assumptions…
It’s so damn difficult to stay positive these days, that’s a fact. Everywhere around you is some sort of negative entity, vibe, force, whatever you may call it that’s trying to break you down. UGH! What is wrong with people? Why is someone else’s happiness & peace a reason for YOUR annoyance, anger & jealousy???… Read More Let positivity Reign!
So I’ve moved from Blogger to WordPress & I must say the entire layout is so much more professional. It’s not as easy to customize as on the Blogger platform but I can do what I like here & I’m satisfied with the theme, colors, etc so far. Now for the transfer/edit of my posts…… Read More Fresh start 🙂
