More Face Time, Less FaceTime

Let’s stop connecting to the internet more than we actually connect with one another.


We’re all Thinking it: the Debate on College

They say we all have access to an education in America and I agree that many of us are made available to a high school education at the most. Then there is college: thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars is standard for a one to four-year education in many institutions. I just turned 16,…

Middle Ground: The Key to Improvement

Words are such a profound way of communication. When certain people speak or tweet, the world will go ballistic in response. I, as a writer, crave this power; the power to cause a ripple in time with the mere use of words. I yearn to possess the ability not to start a war, but to…

To Be the Best…

Do we really believe that liking something enough entitles us to be superb at it by default? You can like a band without knowing every members’ backstory. You can watch football without knowing all the rules. You can write a book without being an award-winning author. We can only get better or learn more about…

The Destruction of Trust is a Byproduct of Technology.

I do not trust anymore. Technology has created a mask allowing anyone to say anything without any real commitment to it. “Autocorrect”…”Someone else had my phone” A picture cannot even serve as valid proof for anything anymore because we’ve become so advanced at the art of manipulation (photoshop and editing). Whether it be a business…

Oh, How Pure Love Is.

A physical body can be of the utmost attraction to someone, and because their lover’s eyes are so bright when paired with the sun’s 12 o’clock beams, because their nose pinches itself when they’re trying to fight back a laugh, they cannot get enough of this person. But rarely does such an obsessed being question…

Before it’s too late…

Whenever my dad takes a trip down memory lane to share a story about his father or his brother, I ask God why I couldn’t have been there, or why they aren’t here now. People envy others who have what they don’t, who get opportunities they were never offered. I grow disgustingly jealous at those…

Just a Piece to your Puzzle.

Shoving a piece into the wrong place numerous times can damage it. Getting let down so many times can damage you. And making someone feel like they don’t meet your expectations is damaging to them.


I am saying this: if those with power can abuse it so disturbingly, imagine what the everyday individual would do with an equal amount of privilege. I am all for giving power to the people, but I suggest we learn to control our power now before we are given a voice loud enough to shake the entire world.
We have the power of manipulation and with that alone, we destroy viciously.

Finding Your Purpose in This Life

The what-ifs, ands, buts, and whys start when you’re only learning to talk. They’re seemingly irritating, at times just redundant and unnecessary, but those who continue to question the world and all of its inexplicable phenomena are those who will forever grow, forever live on, and forever inspire.
I am not afraid to speak my mind, to question the things I do not know or have trouble understanding. I do not coward at the consequence of curiosity, for it did kill the cat, but what is this life worth if you cannot live on even after you are really gone? Take the risk everyone else is hesitant to take and discover things no one else yet has.

“…love finds you when you least expect it.”

“Life happens when you’re busy planning other things. And love finds you when you least expect it.” – My Dad
This is a little dip into the pool of my views on “love” and the importance of realizing it no matter where it comes from. Love is unexpected.

Time is ___.

Time is what you make of it. That is simply our problem. We do not make the best out of it when the opportunity arises.
