‘I can’t do this,’ I hated those words. I could feel them bouncing around in my skull, cracking and breaking things in their path. They were red hot irons, burning the base of my neck like a migraine. Even as the words rang through my head I fought against them. I had to do this. I had no choice.
My fingers reached for the next knick knack, ignoring the pain. I’d gotten rather good at ignoring pain over the last few years. This piece of…

I think I'm having a quarter life crisis, (you can do that right?) I have a great job, a loving boyfriend and a nice house, and at 22 that's not bad. But I feel like my life is settling onto a path too soon. Like, soon I'll be marrying and having kids and it all feels wrong and too soon! I'm starting to feel like my life isn't going to take any twists and turns like I had hoped. I want to travel, and I want to write, and I want to experience everything I possibly can. I want to have the…Continue

Basically I have to pull a cliche teenager and say that yesterday was in fact the worst day of my life or at least pretty darn close to it. Now I mean not to exaggerate but it was all pretty dramatic and confusing not to mention emotional. Let me start at the beginning... My day started out just like any other, a bright sun shining through my window and i hated it because that meant i must get up, but what I did not know was that it would not be just any ordinary day. Once I made it to…Continue

I don't know about you guys, but when I have friends who don't know each other, I like to introduce them to each other. What can I say? I like it when my friends like each other.
What I don't like, is when my friends become better friends with each other than they do with me. I don't know if this makes me selfish, or what, but I hate being left out by people I brought together.
For example, I have a friend from back home, Trevor, who came up to visit for a weekend. (The…Continue
The Moon made the girl's tears shimmer once again, which now resembled stars in a smaller cosmos.
The Moon was an eyewitness. It was an eyewitness of the girl's cries since she was a child. And an eyewitness of how she drowned her sufferings.
Ten summers later, The Moon beheld the glows of a completely full Stade de France. From the place, the purest and sweetest sound of her voice accompanied by the piano her fingers caressed, along with the bass and the…Continue

I have now officially watched every video on the vlogbrothers channel. I feel quite empty and am not sure what to do with my time.
I am dismayed in the same way I am after reading a really good book series. See, in a novel, you get to see the characters progress and explore one plot for a generally shorter amount of time than you would if you were reading a series. But, when I read a series, I get way more emotionally invested in the chatacters and when the last book comes out I…Continue

Hey my nerdy friends! today I was feeling pretty low, i sat in class after class trying to figure out why I was so sad and angry! at lunch I didn't eat anything because I just felt crappy. After school a friend came up to me and asked me why i felt sad to which i replied "I have no idea" I don't know why I was sad, i just told myself I was when I really had nothing to be sad about. It made me think of the SHAYTARDS who if you do not know are a vlogging family on youtube who are amazing and…Continue

Now I understand.
I understand why everyone loves this book so much.
This time this review actually is going to be really short, because I just don't have words to describe... this feeling. The feeling I got while reading The Hunger Games. It is unlike how I've felt reading any other book.
I cried once. And this is why there is a spoiler alert because I must tell you when I cried, and it was when Rue died.
Because I really liked Rue. But somehow I had…Continue

So, for a while we have been planning to downsize from our wonderful memory-filled house in Walters Falls. My mom sold the house, and soon after I came home for Christmas holidays, found a lovely apartment in Owen Sound to rent. It has three bedrooms, a spacious kitchen and living room, and a bathroom. MY ROOM HAS A RANDOM CUPBOARD IN ONE WALL. A HUGE CUPBOARD WHICH I CAN EASILY SIT IN, AND WHICH IS CARPETED AND HAS THIS SLANTED PART I CAN LEAN ON VERY COMFORTABLY.
This is one of…Continue

I was perusing my facebook page when I chanced upon this survey:
It wouldn't be that sad except for the fact that the number of people who voted was amazing. the vote for "0" was in the 10,000s somewhere and you can estimate the others by it.
Since this problem…Continue
we had a japanese exchange student at our school for this year. in that short time she bacame one of our best friends. we all thought we had 2 months left in her visit, we had even planned her going away weekend but it turns out that, with 2 months left, she has to find somewhere else to live. we all tried to take her in but for various reasons, none of us could. now she leaves today, most of us (including me) are unable to say goodbye and we will probebly never see her again.
Okay so it's been a while. Joined nerdfighters, started a collab. video, started college. Got all excited, but it's been nearly a month now and the magic's gone.
I do not want to be some deadbeat nerdfighter. I want to do something, anything. Jump of a cliff for charity, organize a gathering to meet new people. Heck, i'd even shave my head to stir some reaction (.... Okay not that last part).
Basically, I want being a nerdfighter to mean something, not just an empty…Continue
