Don’t let it spiral out of control. Stand your ground and take it all one step at a time. Try to leave your comfort zone, but remain aware of your roots and the person you are. Spiraling downward is not the answer, spiraling into new adventures is what you want to strive towards. Live, but be cautious…for one never knows where their path will take them.
There they stood. Hand in hand, eyes looking toward the starlit sky. Moments together seemed perfect. He smiled, she smiled…life was OKAY. The breeze gently brushed against their cheeks, sending a shiver up both of their spines. This is where they were meant to be…this is where life had taken them.
A baggy sweatshirt and jeans…unkempt hair, no makeup. That’s what she liked though. She never found it necessary to have to be something she’s not. Isn’t that what life is supposed to be? You should never be afraid to look like a mess, wear what you want, feel whatever you feel like feeling. Don’t worry about all the structure, JUST LIVE.
She didn’t do it. Tears streamed down her face as the cops took her away. How is it they could apprehend the victim instead of the man who committed the crime? How could they be so oblivious to the details? She still felt as though women were simply seen as the lower sex of the nation. What was it going to take to get respect and for people to realize she wasn’t asking to be hurt?
Something I have always been fascinated by…Native Americans. It’s such a sad thing really that the Europeans came to America and began to slowly wipe them out. The Native Americans really could have taught us so much more about life, nature, family, and beliefs. Except we did what we always did…we had to dominate.

Always strive to be a person that others will find intriguing. Never feel that you have to conform to a mold that is supposedly what one might deem “attractive.” Strive to make people want to know more about you, but don’t show them everything. Make it a mystery that is worth solving. Strive to make them wonder…
Almost everyone I graduated college with is embarking on their last semester of college…and I still have this summer, fall, spring, and next summer before I am done/have my master’s degree. It’s one of those things where I am excited that I will be ahead of the game by already having my master’s degree in a field that I absolutely love, but at the same time, the extra four semesters of school is not seeming very awesome right now. Only thing I want to do is sleep, not do homework, and live in Alaska. 564 days until that Master’s degree is in my hands…here’s to hoping I can actually do it.
What’s enough? What does that even mean? Sometimes you think your funny jokes or sincere smile are all that are needed to have someone place their heart in your hands, but the truth is, those small things…they are most often not enough. It’s sad though, when you think about it. We are always wanting more and nothing is ever good enough. Everything is “improving,” but in reality we are making it all worse by trying to make it better. Can’t we just be content? Society tells us that simple characteristics aren’t good enough which causes us to hurt others. Look deeper into a person, because in the end, that is enough. You wanting to know them and care for them as an individual…that will ALWAYS be enough.
There they were, enjoying a simple evening…or so she thought. Dinner was peaceful and he seemed so sincere. They went back to his place and that’s when it happened. He began making orders toward her. He ordered her to do awful things and she couldn’t resist due to the fear building up inside of her body.
