To Write Love on her Arms

Today is TWLOHA day. For those of you who dont know, To Write Love on Her Arms is a non profit organization, which raises money to increase awarness and support for those dealing with depression, substance abuse, and suicide. (more info. on their vision can be found at

Through out my years in high school and now in college I have seen both directly (people whom I know and see often) and indirectly (people whom I run into from time to time, and even people who I dont know) the consequences that all of these issues have on those involved and the people around them. Depression and addiction is a dangerous slope- one that is almost impossible to escape with out some form of help. Many people who are dealing with these issues find themselves feeling utterly alone and lost, and I feel that it is up to all of us to offer a hand in help and friendship, and say "it's ok, I'm here". That's why I'm asking all you out there in blog land to join me today in writing the word LOVE on your arms. And when someone stops and asks what it is there for, tell them about TWLOHA, or you could even give them a copy of this post, because awarness is the first step.


Help, just like healing, happens one step at a time.

We all get a big head every now and then-but you've always got to keep yourself in check. Remember, the best leaders are the ones who are willing to follow.

For the most part, I like to consider myself a friendly, confident person. And looking back at some of the things I have accomplished in my 18 years so far, it seems to fit the bill. Or at least it did. You see, usually when I get started with something, I stick it out for a very long time; but sometimes, it's easy to forget that the way I end things is never the way I begin them.

Another little tid-bit about me: if there is ever something that I decide I really do not want to happen/do, it always ends up happening. It sucks when it happens by chance, but it's even worse when I unintentionally make it happen. It's like my life is freaking Oedipus or something (well, with out the incest and far less killings, but you get the idea).

The truth is, throw me into a new situation, and I freeze - I'm talking full on ice block. It's not like I blow things out of proportion, I constantly remind myself that the worst case scenario is never really that bad. And yet there I'll be, acting like a blooming idiot because my brain got scared and decided to peace out.

It's truly something I hate about myself, but try as I might it remains a part of who I am.

So, should you ever come across me at some sort of function, and see me making a complete fool of myself, just chuck that impression out the window. Because I promise that (given the right circumstances) there could be nothing farther away from who I truely am.

Happy Blogging.

In hiding

Laying on the harsh flat ground
and looking at the sky.
No clouds or starts there to be found,
the pale white hum of an electric firefly.

While my thoughts are swelling
yet hiding from the truth.
I guess there's no telling
if I've set off on something new.

As a spider walks crossed the ceiling
a path he makes alone.
It's obvious I'm done healing,
but this is something I have yet to show.
