A New Type of Christmas...

This is the first Christmas my sister and I have had as a split family. Our parents are in the process of going through a divorce, and that's a whole other story. But, that's beside the point... We spent Christmas Eve at our moms and spent Christmas Day at our dads. It was weird not having that "family unit" together, and on top of that this is our first Christmas without our Poppy. So not only did we have the double Christmas's but we also were missing a very special person. My mom and grand...

What's My Next Hand?

Laying in bed staring at my ceiling makes me think... If I could re do high school there are so many things I would change. I would change my group of friends because all it caused was tears and fights.. I'd change the people I went after for the ones I had in front of me the whole time... I'd change things I did... I'd change situations that happened... There's a lot I'd change. But sadly it's not possible.. Why do we think about the past? Isn't it something we are supposed to move on from? ...

Public Shaming of Children

Everyone makes a mistake at least once in their lifetime whether it be a big or little one. Parents have been moving away from corporal punishment as a form of discipline, as fewer parents are finding it acceptable. The amount of public shaming has increased and is taking the place of other forms of punishment. In the past, deviants used to be displayed in stocks within the town square, were tarred and feathered and made to walk through the city streets, or in some cases even labeled with a ...

For Noelle...

I'm going to share something I wrote with the help of my best friend Noel Peceu after my cousin passed away. This song means the world to me, and I feel as if it's time to share it with the world. It's only the lyrics but it describes my feelings and it shows who my cousin truly is. I miss you so much Noelle Johnsen and I hope that people appreciate this song as much as Noel and I do. Ride in Paradise my beautiful angel... There's Not a Day Written by Danitra Calderon Co-Written by Noel Pece...

Taking Charge of my Life

"Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don't." -Steve Maraboli. I have recently decided to take charge of my life and make decisions that will benefit me in the long run. I can’t keep living in my past because what’s done is done. I can’t change a single thing that happened and as hard as that is to face sometimes I have come to terms with that. I am attending Stetson University in Flor...

Letting Go

My inspiration Steve Maraboli once said “The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.” And he is completely right. Unless we let go of what was, we will never move on to what will be. What's done is done. You cannot change something once it has happened. As much as you wish you could. Sometimes something better is just around the corner. You have to take a deep breath and...

The Past is the Past

As I lay awake staring at the ceiling above me.. Many thoughts race through my head. Visions of my past flash before my eyes. I know you're supposed to be able to move forward from the past and not worry about it, but my past has so much to it that I wish I could go back and redo it.. When I dream I dream of past events. I remember times that I had that I'll never get back. I don't regret one single thing I did, but sometimes I wish I could go back and relive moments. I wish I could go back a...

My World

Ever since I was a little girl the one constant in my life was the love I felt towards my grandfather. He was always there for me when I needed him and he taught me most of what I know today. He's the man who taught me wrong from right. He's the man who taught me how to drive. He's the man who made me who I am today. If it wasn't for him I don't know who I'd be today. He's literally my world, my everything, my hero, my role model. I could write a novel about all the times we spent together. W...

My Pride and Joy

This would be Bentley! He is my pride and joy. He always puts a smile on my face especially when I'm having a rough day. He really is my miracle. He is someone who is always there whenever I need him. I got him in April of 2013 and ever since then he's been my baby. He is such a Mommys boy. He loves to cuddle and keep me company while I do my homework. He really has helped me through a lot because of how much he can brighten your mood. Yes he's a cat but he's my cat and he's my baby. I've had...

That First Year

My first year attending Stetson University was a very interesting one. The feelings of leaving home for the first time and being over 18 hours away. And being on your own. It was something that was hard to get used to. Watching my parents drive away and leave me was the hardest thing to watch.. When you think of a first year of college the typical party scene pops into your head? Right? Well for me it wasn't anything like that. I barely went out and I focused on school. I joined the shooting ...

Tears of My Past

My life hasn't been as easy as I make it look. I put on a smile each and every day to make it seem as if everything is alright. When deep down I have tons of emotions running through me. Who am I? Where am I meant to be? Can I do this? Why does this always happen to me? Some of you might have those same questions running through your heads.. You're not alone! My life dramatically changed in January of 2012. I never thought things would be okay again. It felt like my world was crashing down ar...
