Plans Far Greater Than Our Own.

  Life as a college student can be tricky and stressful. I often find myself feeling trapped and questioning my future. Am I making the right choices? Taking the right classes?

I’m Not Going To School For An Education

Last night my professor started out class by saying "I'm sure none of you are here because you wanted to take this class for fun. I am also pretty sure that none of you are taking this class just to learn something new, but instead because it is required of you."

I am not dating a racial slur.

Although they were not my table, every time I would walk by them to fill someone's drink (They were sitting in a table right next to our pop machine) they would cat call me. I started… Continue reading I am not dating a racial slur.

“Don’t let stupid little things break your happiness”

I'm seeing lots of broken people on my blogs time line this morning. Granted, I do follow some severe tags such as suicide, depression, & self-harm. I follow these tags on purpose though and check them both in the morning and at night so that I can share some of my light with those who… Continue reading “Don’t let stupid little things break your happiness”

Shedding the light onto self-harm.

Well, I have probably started this blog about 15 times now and still can't seem to figure out how it is that I want to go about this. I want to share my story, but I also don't want people to judge me. I want to help people and shine some light where there is… Continue reading Shedding the light onto self-harm.
