    1. Learn to love the quirks of my body...how my hair doesn’t stay in place or how my wait is uneven . Unique is beautiful .. 2. Listen to my mother...she has had more trips around the sun . She knows a thing or two and her opinion matters .. 3. Always make time for friends . Companionship is one of life’s little miracles .  4. Don’t talk to that boy who only wants your body...you deserve someone who wants your pearly whites but also your clenched jaw...someome who will hold your hand when you

    My dentist once told me that letting go is like pulling a tooth .. When it was pulled out , you’re relieved...but how many times does your tongue run itself over the spot where the tooth once was ? Probably a hundred times a day .. Just because it wasn't hurting you doesn’t mean you didn't notice it . It leaves a gap and sometimes you see yourself missing it terribly. It’s going to take a while , but it takes time . Should you have kept the tooth ? No , because it was causing you so much

    You know what sucks about surviving cancer ? watching all your friends and family who don't ... I don't think people realize how hard it is . Sadly , as often as this happens...it doesn't get any easier . I am beyond sick of having to write "rest in paradise _______"  statuses . I am so tired of all the crying and tears that are shed from the news of their passing . I really don't know how much more I can take . I understand that people die every single day from all sorts of things...but when

    Darling let me tell you a little secret .. You know that boy you love ? He’s inevitably going to break your heart .. That best friend you planned on spending the rest of your life with ? She’s going to eventually leave .. But you know what ? That is okay .. The universe places people in your life for just enough time to shape you into that beautiful person you’ve always wanted to be .. So yes , while these people may only be temporary , the effect they have on you is permanent .. And that ,

    Sometimes you meet people who make a big impact on your life...sometimes you let them in with no questions . You don’t ask them if they are going to hurt you...you don’t ask them of their intentions...you don’t ask them if they’re planning on breaking your heart . You just let them in because they mean that much to you . They change you...sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse . You become addicted...you dream of their cherry stained lips and their bright smile...you dream of their

Now you're gone . At least you're in paradise now . With your fellow family members . I know that you , Emily , Pablo , Catherine , Laura , Natalie , Jose , and Michael are watching over all of us and protecting everyone you love . You will be missed dearly . I know you were fighting until the very end...and even

    Darling show off your teeth each one of them the chipped one and the slightly sunny ones all of them. Because just pulling back your lips will let a little light into your belly god knows we all need that. Put on the dress you bought last summer before you got the idea that it had to fit a certain way to be acceptable because it’s not supposed to hug you like it did the mannequin. You wear it like it was made to be worn .. twirling past strangers curving around your hips flowing

    Yes , I cried during the Lion King .. Sure , I still get scared of the dark .. Don’t laugh , but I still hide under the covers when I'm scared...and I can't believe I'm telling you this , but sometimes I like to cuddle with my stuffed animals and pretend it's you because that's the only thing that keeps me from breaking into tears .. I just hope , that even still you can still call me tough .

    Welcome to a place you used to call home and now is full of strangers .. The smell of coffee , forgotten faith and lost memories cling to the bronze walls...broken friendships (at least partially your fault) taste like bitter chocolate and your could-have-beens echo off the high ceilings . Upside down city lights drown in the reflection of leftover rainwater...your tires slash through them and you think quietly about the skin on your forearms . Your favorite album isn’t enough to drown the pit

    Woke up at 6am today .. Had to babysit . Been having the worst headache since I woke up . Took about 3 naps already today . It's only 2:30 -_- Im here until after 7 . It's going to be a long rest of the day for me . Gabby (who's 6 by the way) is getting on my nerves . Not only hasn't she been listening to me , she has also been whining about everything . Which isn't helping my headache whatsoever . We're at Joey's Outback at the moment . It's an indoor bounce house place .  Pretty interesting .

    When I see you , I put a smile on my face and laugh a little longer than usual at jokes that probably weren’t funny...wanting you to think that my happiness doesn’t depend on you . I turn to one of my friends and suddenly become very interested in what they have to say...attempting to show that I have other friends in my life that fill the hole you dug . I talk to the boy sitting next to me...leaning closer to him than I would’ve before so that you can see I’m completely over you and can have

    If we were to sit down here ,  on the messy bed of my room in this shared apartment ,  to talk...I would want to talk about places .. Places where you fell in love or places where you cried .  Where were you when you realized you’d suddenly grown up ? I was here .  Balanced precariously between a pillow and a stuffed giraffe named Franklin ,  reading headline after headline on a darkened computer screen . If we were to sit down right here ,  I’d want you to tell me about where you had your first

    Honestly , if I like someone , I try to stop it ..  I try to get away ; try to distance myself...I run . I try to stop noticing how his eyes light up when they meet mine . I try to ignore how his smile completely brightens up an entire room , or when his nostrils flare when he's deep in thought . “I do like him, but-” I will say .. and if there is no “but” to stop me from admitting how I feel , I will make one up because for goodness’ sake , I find it so damn hard to just open up to someone

I’m not so much stuck ; it’s hard to get out , but I’ve in the hole for so long it’s comforting .. But on the days it gets bad , I’m  not so much in the hole , but the hole is in me and it gets all flipped around and I get stuck...For real . And sometimes I feel as though it tries to swallow me whole .. This hole in soil that is of an

My twenties are teaching me that no one is ever as busy as they say they are . Like honestly , where you going

Notice the red in our mouth when you first taste us .. Say stop light . Back away . Always look at our bottom lip .. It spills the most secrets . There is always a tremble . Some a DO NOT ENTER sign . Some a siren . We are such wailing creatures .. You know what a shipwreck we make out of everything .  How to touch

    When you love someone , you tend to tell them so much about your past because you’re trying to catch up to the present moment .. You’re trying to say , my past has been bloody . My past has been as painful and pounding as an ear ache ,  but I am still here . I survived it . You’re trying to say , here I am before you .. ​I can be brutal  I can be as harsh and unforgiving as sun burn , but this is how I got to this moment .. This is who I am . I am not always kind and lovely , I am so often

    I realized I felt connected to no one . Old friends saw me as my former self , as if through a distorted funhouse mirror that made everything warped and untrue . They judged me unfairly , for I had left that person behind long ago . The new acquaintances in my life were just that .. new , and too foreign to understand the whole of my heart , or I theirs . Alone as I felt , I also felt happy that it had taken me so long to realize the empty audience in my life , for I had never felt closer to

    She’ll sit by your bed and read you your favorite story while she feeds you spoonfuls of slowly cooling soup .. She isn’t your mom , but do not mistake that for a lack of caring . Because she cares ; she cares more than you’ll ever know ... You’ve had a bad day .. a more than horrible day .. a day that you never want to relive . You slunk home and were surprised to be greeted by her warm smile and attentiveness to you . You pour your soul out to her , and between sobs and sniffles , she assures

To the boy in my class during second grade who I punched for hurting my friend .. you taught me to become brave .  To my fifth grade teacher who told me that I wasn’t good enough .. you made me believe in myself more .

Romantic gestures like writing cute
