Impact

Smack. Crunch. Shatter. All of them end in silence. And from that, the impact resonates within us; spurring us to produce sound and action. Laughter. Cries. Applause. A determined light blossoms in the vast void of Us, ultimately taking shape as thoughts and half-baked, heartfelt nothings. Like the air around us, all impacts are mystical… Continue reading Impact

What is a hug?

In amazing human fashion, there are as many different takes on what a hug is as there are people on this planet. In my humble opinion, a hug is a place in which all is communicated and all is felt on the deepest of levels.

What have you been doing lately? (Part 2)

I shunned the idea and thought, "Pfft, why do I need to go find people? They should come to me!" I mean, that's what my family was always going on about whenever I'd have a falling out with love. Shouldn't it work the same way with friends? God, what a pompous noodle butt I was... am?

What have you been doing lately? (Part 1)

It's becoming more and more evident that, despite living out in the countryside, the virus will spread as long as people keep moving around, unaware they're contaminated. And would you believe I STILL see people not wearing a mask?

I feel heavy.

I sit here, greatly perturbed. A weight is resting heavily on me and the only thing I can actively think about is how I have this ugly urge to cry. My throat is parched, so I reach for some day-ol’ water in the glass next to me. The dreary, chunky clouds outside seem to reflect… Continue reading I feel heavy.

I want you, but I don’t need you: Personal thoughts on self-validation.

Social distancing has got me in the throes of passion. Passionate reflection, that is. Today's topic is self-validation. I might have touched on it here, but it's bothering me, so I'm going to yammer on about it again. The Backstory I have a love-hate relationship with social media. I've had a MySpace, a DeviantArt, a Gaia… Continue reading I want you, but I don’t need you: Personal thoughts on self-validation.

You snooze, you lose, Slow News.

Inspired by one of the fellows I follow here on WordPress, I thought I would type out a quick update on my life. Slow, indeed! My days seem to pass as thickly as molasses. There is no pressure to complete work and projects. I didn't mention in my last post, but school is to be… Continue reading You snooze, you lose, Slow News.

Self-isowhat?

Never would I have thought that I’d be stocking up on non-perishables and learning how to make a mask. Sure, the folks who have believed the zombie apocalypse would be coming all along have been prepared for ages, but what about the rest of us who can’t even grasp the idea? Part of me is… Continue reading Self-isowhat?

Myers-Briggs and I

Let’s talk Myers-Briggs. Just about everyone and their mom should know what this is or has had heard of it at some point. It’s basically a psychological test that puts an individual into a personality type based on the level of disagreement or agreement they have towards choice statements (i.e. After a hard work week,… Continue reading Myers-Briggs and I

Sweet Dreams are Made of These

It’s weird how dreams stick with you. It’s even weirder how your subconscious blends in with the real stuff and leaves you feeling things; confusion especially. I also really wanna go find the bird that I found in my sleep. That was freaky time slip disco right there. What did I dream about, you’re probably… Continue reading Sweet Dreams are Made of These
