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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Look Back: Pride, Cows, Diamonds & Good Eats

A look back at Pride, Cows, Diamonds and Good Eats Rihanna has released the first single from her upcoming album and I couldn’t be more excited! The mood of her songs always seem to fit me where I am in life. I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t on repeat a lot sometimes. While […]

Prince Charming

Early on in college my friend diagnosed me with fairy tale syndrome. Sure she was right. I had high expectations and believed when a guy came along, it’d be a great story. He might be in one of my classes and one of us asked the other out on an actual date. It’d be an intimate feeling restaurant […]

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.” […]

Save Me

I don’t want to be hurt. I really don’t want to be hurt. I know no one wants to be hurt, but I really don’t want to give a guy the power to hurt me. I don’t want anyone to hurt me. It’s taken me too long to make it to this point and I don’t want […]
