I am stronger than my past.
I am stronger than my disorder.
I am stronger than my depression.
I am stronger than my anxiety.
And I am stronger than their judgments.
So are you.
Don't give up.
Let me love you.Today I talked with a woman who's daughter I knew since we were kids. This girl was always introverted, really shy. And half the time I figured people didn't even notice she was there. But I noticed. We became this awkward sort of 'friends' our sophomore year of high school all the way up to graduation.Let me love you.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Her mother told me today that she is still backwards and pretty awkward around people but she's getting better. I assured her that I tried to bring her daughter out of her shell, and she smiled and said to me, "Oh I know—she talked about you everyday after school. Kayla did this, Kayla said that. Kayla brought me into this prank…"
( Sidenote: We taped printed out pictures of kittens all over our history teachers classroom.)
I always figured she thought I was annoying and merely put up with me.
But now, all I can think is, "Wow—someone thought I was awesome enough to tell the closest people to them about. MEEEEE."

For A FriendIts ok to cry.For A Friend2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Its ok to let your feelings out.
Its ok to speak your mind.
It's ok to let the words issue from your mouth.
It's ok to let them leap from your lips.
Being strong is not always the best for you,
Bottling the pain in brittle bottles.
'Cause those bottles always break and what they once held;
can comeback stronger.
The feeling immersing you in grief and sadness.
Robbing you of light and casting you into darkness.
Making your heart become cold, causing you to fade.
Don't be afraid darling, we will guide you.
You are safe. <3
Feel like self harming? Committing suicide?Stop there. Don’t do it. Do not pick up the blade, don’t pick at your thighs, don’t pick at a certain spot until you bleed. Put down the scissors, lower your hand and stop for a minute. Think about what you are doing. You’re already hurt enough aren’t you? Someone, somewhere has caused you a lot of pain. You’re hurting enough aren’t you? Then why? Why hurt yourself even more then you need to?Feel like self harming? Committing suicide?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don’t self harm, you are lovely person. You have a heart, you care about other people. You know, we all push people away, especially when we need them the most. I know, I get it, I have been there. But that’s life and if they really cared as much about you as they said, then they would stay by your side no matter what. What will self harming solve? It will only cause you more physical pain. I get it, I get how self harming can release some sort of adrenaline rush and I get that after cutting for so long you can’t just stop, but
The Meaning of 'No' and Where to Go From ThereFor my AP Language and Composition class, we were supposed to write an essay on a controversial topic. I chose Rape Culture.The Meaning of 'No' and Where to Go From There2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An important line that seems to be blurred when it comes to sexual advances and the act of sex itself is the idea of "when does no mean no". If a woman is blackout drunk yet still asks for sex, even though she might not remember it in the morning, surely it isn't against her will? Or if a girlfriend says no, maybe she's just playing hard to get, right? Wrong. No matter the innuendos and no matter the situation, 'no' does in fact mean 'no'. Regardless of how drunk the person is or what they are wearing, there is never an excuse for rape or an 'invitation' for sexual assault. But the question is where did this mindset begin and why is it acted upon so often and without reproof?
The catalyst and the enabler of rape is much more complex than just a man's lust: the crux of the issue lies in the idea of "Rape Culture". Rape culture is a society in which people of all a
Just something I wrote out of hope...She pulled the sleeves of her jumper down, a loose thread caught her eye drawing all her attention and then she remembered it all. The blood in front of her seemed as real as the thread and just as red. She loved red. But blue ran down her cheeks from her eyes at the memories. Why, why, why? ran through her mind. An all consuming fire which destroyed all joy she had ever known; all the people, places and things she had loved seemed like nothing against this wall of black, black memory. A salty droplet hit the thread and she was suddenly pulled back into the murky light of the daytime.Just something I wrote out of hope...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Can anyone else relate to this?When I was growing up, I didn't really know much about being popular or cliques or anything like that. In elementary school and middle school, you start to kind of realize what it's all about. There are cool kids, and then there's you, and you're just trying to figure out where you fit in.I learned a lot about acceptance and rejection,Those are the themes that you'll find spread throughout my music and weaved in throughout all of the lyrics. I really know what it's like to be accepted, and I also know what it's like to be rejected. And those are lessons I learned in Wyomissing."Can anyone else relate to this?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

ContinentsVios Terra: The ContinentsContinents3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Welcome to Vios Terra, a world dominated by four segregated lands. Each continent is aligned with one of the four elements: Water, fire, air and earth. About half of the world population are born as adepts, naturally inheriting power to manipulate their native element, though all control is weak unless specifically trained and honed. For the ones who are born without, weapons and various tools have been created to channel these powers.
International trade and commerce is restricted solely to the neutral land, located at the intersecting paths of all four countries. Foreigners are not permitted on the separated islands, as powerful barriers are in place as an extra measure against pirates and raiders who aim for each country's treasured gem.

boys that want you, boys that love you.1.boys that want you, boys that love you.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
there are four kinds of love.
the first is honest.
the first is messy.
it's smeared makeup.
it's tears over a martini.
it's people dancing alone.
it's off-key singing, at the top
of your lungs.
it's unmade beds.
it's the hickey on your neck.
it's the gasp he gave
when he first saw you,
how he missed your lips
when he tried to kiss you.
after he made you cry.
the second kind is what you feel
for the boy lying next to you.
there's cigarettes in the ashtray,
panties on the floor,
a lump in your throat,
and he does not love you back.
the third kind is when you'll meet
and that little moment will stretch
into something huge and permanent,
into a month/six months/a year
of a million glances that you'd thought
it's when you'll say nothing
and neither will he
because there will be no need
because he'll very nearly smile
and you'll know.
the fourth is when you asked him,
"do you love me?"

1. Leonardo da Vinci spent 12 years painting the Mona Lisa's lips.
2. Gothic was originally a term of criticism among the Italian Renaissance artists who coined it. The term implied that, compared to superior classical buildings, the Gothic medieval cathedrals were so crude that only a Goth could produce them.
3. On 3rd December 1961 Henri Matisse's painting Le Bateau was put the right way up after hanging upside-down for 46 days without anyone noticing at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, America.
4. Roman statues were made with detachable heads, so that one head could be removed and replaced by another.
5. Paul Gaugin, the French painter, was a labourer on the Panama Canal. About 25,000 workers died during its construction.
6. In ancient times, it was believed that certain colours could combat the evil spirits that lingered over nurseries. Because blue was associated with the heavenly spirits, boys were clothed in that colour, b

Anyhow, I injured my left foot, ankle, and leg on an accident this past spring and pretty much became a full-time couch potato (eating junk food and watching a ton of movies) throughout the summer months. Once the good doctor cleared me for low-impact exercises, I hit the gym and started riding my bicycle just in time to enjoy another colorful autumn. With proper physical exercise routines and a strict healthy diet, I'm now back on my feet and no longer need ankle wrap or stabilizer.
I've been busy working on outdoor photography projects this autumn (most of them were weddings and portraits). Now that's getting freezing cold out, I'm gearing up to hike couple nature trails and hopefully catch some of my favorite s

Halloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi
