Reflection: He Doesn’t Have a Crush on You

I sat at my computer glancing at other blogger’s posts and when I one on her crush caught my eye. I thought back to my He Has a Crush on You post and a little “Aww” went through my mind. Six months ago I felt that excitement you feel when you REALLY like someone and they […]

Alone Right Now

I remember walking back upstairs to my room after my mom dropped me off at college. She cried all the way here and as she started to drive off. I remember feeling like we were driving into an unknown. As I walked back into my room and sat down, I thought to myself: This is […]

A Day of Coming Out – My Love Letter

Today is National Coming Out Day and I am on the Pride Student Union Executive Board at FSU. It’s been hectic lately with editing videos, the week of events and with working on media on covering our Rainbow Door and March across campus. First, I have to say so much love today from a personal […]

Finding Roots – A Sweet Two Years

Today is the second anniversary of writing Finding Roots! When I started this blog, I didn’t know what to expect, or who would really read it. It turned into a vulnerable, beautiful process allowing me to be connect with others, find myself and be honest. Below are the top five posts of my blog that helped bring me […]

Or at Least I Can Pretend

I just didn’t think it was going to be this hard. I simply wanted a clean break for everyone involved. I wanted things easy. When I say break I don’t mean like forget everything, forget each other. I just wanted things simpler. I guess not so emotional on my part. And part of me questions how can […]

Crushes Past Part Two – Stood Up, Hook Up and Vulnerable

Part Two picks up from my post on freshman year crushes. You can read it here: Crushes Past Part One ———- Sophomore year began feeling like being so close to the peak of this college mountain. I didn’t expect all the old faces turning into crushes. I really expected it to be a year with […]

Crushes Past Part One – Hugs, Friends and WHAT?

In the last two years, there is nothing like that pause I’ve experienced between asking a guy out and their answer. But what makes that pause horrible is when as soon as the words come out of my mouth or that text has been sent, I can feel the rejection coming like a train emerging […]

“It’s Just Chicken”

In the Tallahassee, and more specifically Florida State University area, the Chik-fil-a debate has been ongoing for the last year with protest of allowing this establishment on campus. While I do think this is a complicated matter, what boils my blood is hearing from people “It’s just chicken” or “It’s delicious so what does it matter.” […]

This Was a Drive-By

Maybe I set myself up for an emotional failure. When rejected I want to forget it happened. A drive-by of emotions that I want to pretend never happened. But eventually, down the line, the emotions reappear. Not the hopeful ones but the hurt ones. The ones not wanting to accept feeling rejected. That wonder why […]

My Lips Were Shaking

A year ago I was definitely in my end of freshman year mentality. I didn’t see myself as cute. I didn’t understand the public relations world well and I was lost in certain ways. I didn’t even make it to the Live with Kelly semi-finalist level and it hurt. No matter how farfetched something is, […]
