Q&A: Chris Nicholas

You read someone’s blog or listen to their music and you think you know their story. A million things make up who we are, a million little things. How can we possibly know everything? There is one writer, of many, that I really admire. His writing has made a unique impact on me and he […]

Feeling Lost

I went for a walk this morning, much too early for my liking. Thinking too much of too many things. Wishing someone could show me the way. Wishing someone could show me who I am. Who I need to be, what I need to do… It’s such a great purpose to pursue. A purpose much […]

If you can’t be a sun, be a star

A large majority of you that read my blogs are between the ages of 15-21 and with school right around the corner, I thought this blog was fitting. Six months before Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, he spoke to a group of kids at a high school in Philadelphia on October 26, 1967. […]

What We Leave Behind

There are so many feelings but no words. I don’t want to explain it. I want to run away from it and never have to feel this again. My life is always screaming at me. It’s so loud that sometimes I can’t hear anything else. There is always something I need to understand. Something I […]

Desperation

It was on this cold Sunday morning that I was deep in thought about my life and my purpose. I thought about everything that got me to this exact spot. Let me start from the beginning… When I was applying to universities, I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do with the rest of […]

The First Time I got Stitches…

Was today. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen since being diagnosed with a muscle disorder. Too many times to count. Most of the times I can walk away with a little bruise here or there. Sometimes I have to go to the emergency because I tore a ligament or something. Today, I […]

To Love Again…

Everything was done, The moment our eyes met. Those eyes of yours, Swallowed me entirely. You knew, I saw it in the way you looked at me. I didn’t know why I was so drawn to you, Maybe it was because I didn’t know someone like you existed, I didn’t know someone like you could […]

We’re Taught to Hate

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” ― Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom […]

January 1, 2017

And just like that, 2016 is done and gone. The first thing I felt was relief. This year was a testing one. A true testing one. And I thought to myself, why should I feel relieved? I was given a year that many did not get, many did not survive through. And I feel relief […]
