There is not a single soul in the world that hasn’t been called weird at least ten times in their life. The human race is not meant to be “perfect” like society preaches to us. Always have your hair brushed, always have makeup on, always look presentable going out into public, always like the same s...

It was 2 am. I woke up to the sound of objects hitting the wall and people yelling. Half asleep, I rubbed my eyes and tore the knitted blanket away from my body. The yelling and banging continued as I searched the wall for my light switch, finally finding it and flipping it on. I opened my bedroom d...

I’m sorry. I’m sorry that you wanted so desperately to help others when your own heart was breaking. I’m sorry I drove you to the brink of exhaustion for an expectation that is simply unobtainable. I’m sorry I didn’t care about you like I cared for others. I’m sorry on the days that it hurt to get o...

Hello Friends, it's Julianna again. I have been doing some serious healing recently after some physical and emotional struggles, and something hit my brain like dodgeball in middle school gym class. Music, to me atleast (and I am sure to many other people too), is very healing. My personal music tas...

Love 
Fear
Passion 
Dreams
The journey 
I want them all 
I need them all 
I want my love for someone 
To grow and grow 
But not before 
My love for someone else 
Breaks and shatters before me 
Leaving me with nothing but tears 
And the memories
It’ll make me stronger 
And love you 
Just that much mo...

If you ask a high school student what their biggest issue with school is they will most likely than not say that it's the start times and their lack of sleep. Why? Typically you'll hear that it's the students' fault and that they need to make themselves fall asleep sooner so that they’ll wake up ear...

The silent killer
The deadliest of them all 
The thing that strikes out of nowhere 
The thing that makes your skin crawl 
Depression 
I was happy two minutes ago 
Laughing and joking around with my mom and dad
The laughter settles 
I lean back in my seat 
And 
Immediately 
My entire mood 
Shifted 
I...

    Understanding something you don’t have isn’t an easy task. I realized that I never really addressed my mental health and how it truly affects me and the way I operate on a daily. I have mentioned it may affect my ability to focus or react to certain situations, however I never addressed the...

We can spend every waking moment with a loved one and still not know a single thing about them. The truth of the matter is the face we present to the world may not always be authentic. Laughs are easy to force and smiles don’t need a cause. Each effective to mask the emptiness that is felt inside an...

Sometimes talking about things from our past can be too difficult to put into words, but after having to write a letter for my AP Lang class about the things we carry with us, I kinda started just spewing out random thoughts that to my surprise, turned out pretty inspiring and was even empowering fo...

You can’t solve a puzzle if it’s not in pieces
The point is in the fact
That all of these small pieces
Fit together so perfectly
To create a masterpiece
The pieces fall
As you dump the box
Onto the table
Inspect each and every one
Find the corners
Put them in place
And rummage through the rest
Sitti...

The Heavens are weeping for her as she stands outside in the dimly lit day. They know she has lost all the built hope in her again. They pour down their tears in hopes she’ll remember that they watch over her everyday. They’ve watched her smile and grow through the hardest days. After 12 hours they...

Throughout our lives, we experience so many hardships. Whether it be stress from school, family issues, or mental/emotional obstacles, we all face them, and sometimes, it's hard to cope with it alone. We may resort to talking to the people closest to us, such as our friends and family. But sometimes...

Do I forgive?
I was told you cant move on if you dont forgive 
But can I forgive this 
My life was stolen 
The girl I was 
Was stolen 
She was replaced 
With me 
I am not that girl 
Everyone grows up and changes eventually 
But I wasnt ready 
I wanted more of my childhood 
That was stolen
Freshman y...
