Love, heartbreak, happiness, sadness, hopes, dreams & ideas all transmuted to a common medium - the written word.

I love getting questions, submissions and requests so don't hesitate!

I have nearly driven myself
mad on countless occasions
attempting to decipher what
sets you apart from 7 billion.

You are highly intelligent
but there are individuals who
possess greater intellect.

You are funny
but I have met people
who are more gifted in wit.

You are handsome
but there are many in the world
who lay claim to this trait.

You are brave
but you do not deny
that you possess fears.

You strive for perfection
but you don’t profess
to be perfect.

You are merely a human being
with a beating heart and a
restless soul like the
rest of mankind.

Why then, I ask, do you appear
as the brightest sun amongst
ceaseless darkness?

simplikiing asked: Are you a major in anything? My goal is to be a major is music, I want to graduate college with my docerate.

When people ask me this, I usually joke and say that I feel like Four in Divergent: “I don’t want to be just one thing. I can’t be. I want to be brave, and I want to be selfless, intelligent, and honest and kind.” My current major is listed as Biological Science. I am fascinated with the human body so I’ve thought about going on to become a doctor or a mid-level (NP/PA). I’ve also considered careers in engineering, journalism, acting and crime scene investigation. So yeah… You can see my dilemma ;)

Thank you for your question!

Anonymous asked: I sent u an ask with name but u haven't answered it yet :( i don't know what was it because i sent it about two weeks ago. Did u get it and ignored it or what? x

I have quite a few “asks” that I’ve been wanting to write back to but each is deserving of time and thought and I haven’t been able to get to them quite yet. I am sure I still have your’s. If you write me back and tell me which it was, I will be sure to get back to you as soon as I possibly can.

I am so sorry for the delay! I look forward to talking with you.

If truth be told, the truth is rarely told.

Anonymous asked: How do i know your real?

I have heard it said that if you seek to truly understand something, you must first view each of its components in their most simplistic form. Only then, they say, will you gain an appreciation for the intricate mechanisms that work diligently in unison towards a common purpose.

I have found this to be true.

It was not until I had broken your heart that I was able comprehend its magnificent capacity for selflessness and unconditional love. I was able to understand and appreciate you in ways that I never had before. What I hadn’t realized at the time was the tremendous effort that was needed to reassemble all of the parts necessary to recreate the original whole. Immediately, I realized that I had made a fatal mistake. I lacked the ability to put all of your many complex pieces back together. I was ashamed of myself for breaking something so beautiful. I held my breath, closed my eyes and walked away. The only solace that I have found is knowing that someday, someone will come along with enough patience, love and knowledge to remedy what I could not.
