seasons end

I’ll keep summer, though, thanks! I’m not particularly great at a stringent routine. I think its because I lack practice?, my roots have been uprooted for the better part of a decade and my transient life has required I not get too comfortable in one setting. School ended for me a week ago, started for […]

rising

“I was the type of person that held onto things too tight.  Unable to release my grip when it no longer felt right.  And although it gave me blisters and my fingers would all ache, I always thought that holding on was worth the pain it takes.  I used to think in losing things I’d […]
