The Verge

My clothes slowly start to fill my bag as I pack for my first trip to New York City. As I left my Pride board meeting I started to realize how much I’ll miss these people I work with in being gone just a week. I feel overcome with awe by the fact I’m on […]

#Unapologetic

When we make decisions and are even considering options, people will always try to make us feel bad about what we want. This includes the people we care about most, along with people we don’t know so well. We’re judged for how we let certain things play out and for how we want them to. […]

Christopher Robin Said to Pooh

Loyalty can be a lonely place. Loyalty to your work, and your friendships, and mainly to yourself leads to confusion. The constant struggle to do what is right towards everyone along with yourself eventually leads to choices. Choices changing the complacent present. Even though you know this choice is correct, the future looks hazy and […]

Compromising and Compromising?

We consider ourselves to be independent beings. Post job: “I’m fine. Now I’m able to hang out with y’all more” Perpetually single: “I have so much free time and it’s great! I get to do what I want to do. I’m able to sit in my bed and get crumbs everywhere.” However, the hope of […]

What We Deserve

Every school break I go home to what feels like some of the same family drama. One person has says something to annoy another, my little brother and sister of course fighting with each other and me starting out this trip home by knowing exactly how many days and hours this ordeal could last.

Freshman Turned PR Boy

I don’t recognize the PR boy I am today. Two years ago I probably had the same basic skills I have today, but now I actually have experience under my belt. As a freshman I remember how impressive the seniors were. The ones who seemed to have and know it all. The ones who seemed to be a hustler by day and rockstar by […]

He Ran from Me

It wasn’t that I still had feelings for him or really even hoped the text was true. Seeing those words was surreal. I wanted the truth. I wanted him not to be able to play my heart like it felt like the others did. I wanted to feel desirable – someone attracted to me like […]

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 […]

Risk

I want people to reflect back on me one day and think that among other things, I was someone willing to take risks – especially with friendships and dating. That even if I didn’t really know someone, but had the slightest interest in them, I put myself out there. I’ve learned, so what we aren’t […]
