No Regrets

I like to joke that my degree in Film and Video Production from Full Sail University (AKA Full Sail Real World College – when I went there) is the most expensive piece of paper I ever got. My mom hates that as she took out a parent loan to pay tuition. I was trying to…

Monster

Content Warning: Graphic details of sexual acts, nudity, molestation, sexual predator, sexual acts with a minor I have told this story a thousand times (maybe less) and I have never told its entirety. Maybe to convince others it happened. Maybe to convince myself that I was a victim. Maybe because I am scared that what…

Don’t you hear the children scream?

On NowThis Politics, a poet slams congress for inaction with gun laws when tragedy after tragedy has occurred in this country. He mentions scary statistics like gun violence being 20 times higher here than in any other developed country. Another statistic I heard, not from his video, is that there have been 18 school shootings…

Greg :: Trust Issues

Sometimes people bullshit and you have to learn how to bullshit a bullshitter. I feel it’s a skill I have come to possess. And sometimes, if I am lucky, I find the person underneath the bullshit to be more interesting. This is how I became to know Greg and eventually adore Greg under all of…

Gregory :: Bad Intentions

I was 14 when I first met Greg. I was friends with his girlfriend of the time. She and I used to hang out in class and make fun of our peers. She was in love with Greg. But it wasn’t until freshmen year of high school where things got messy. All the fault being…

Fifty Shades Flat?

Last night, after I had dinner with me, my girlfriend called me up with the need to go out for a girl’s night. And what better way to celebrate a girl’s night than going to see the third and final film, Fifty Shades Freed? So not long ago, I wrote a blog post in response…

Dating Me

A good girl is better than millions of bitches But one bitch can leave you with millions of stitches And I don’t want to say I’m A bitch but I’ll never be a Mrs -Olivia O’brien The other day I watched a TEDTalk on dating yourself and inevitably marrying yourself before you ever commit to…

Remembering

I am going to write about something I don’t think I have written about before. I am hoping I don’t make it too depressing as it is kind of a somber topic, but I think I might gain something by facing it. After the dreaded hotel party, I made a friend. He lived in my neighborhood and he was a troublemaker. He was a rebel without any real cause, but he was also a good listener. We began dating and my mother wasn’t having it. I can remember one night where I really wanted to go see him, but being…

I got a little too good at breaking hearts

Every time I fall in love I go and fuck it up right when it gets good Don’t you think it’s funny Don’t you think it’s funny And I know I did all the shitty things to you That I said I never ever would But baby, that’s so like me Yeah baby, that’s so…

Everyone is a Critic

I follow a few authors on my Facebook page. I even chat with them through comments and I feel it is kind of cool since they are actually authors — something so admirable to me. And though the beginning of this post sounds vapid when typed aloud, please stick with me because what I have…

I don’t mind, I don’t mind this wasted, shaded daylight

I could learn photography. That could be something to want. So last night I wrote up a post entitled Possibilities. It was my third post yesterday. It’s odd, it seems the more solitude I collect, the more content I produce. Well, before I get too off track, I have more to share that touches the…

Period Post. Period.

The crimson wave has plagued me monthly for 22 years minus the two years I was on Depo – the shot – that made me blissfully happy that flow was an absentee. Until one day I forgot and had an oops which turned into a just kidding which turned into a surgery to avoid hemorrhaging…

Bipolar Disorder: Simplification the Answer?

Not only does Bipolar Disorder along with other mental illnesses have a stigma, but Bipolar Disorder can reduce a person’s life expectancy by 9 to 20 years, schizophrenia 10 to 20 years, and 9 to 24 years in heavy drug use/addiction.¹ Ironically, even though society looks down on drug addicts, there is generally more help…

Goodbye

Goodbye I don’t wanna Feel the need To hear your voice Goodbye I don’t wanna Feel the need To see your face I can’t live with All these things I would say I can’t live with All these things that I say Goodbye, goodbye Goodbye, goodbye Like the first time Goodbye, goodbye Goodbye, goodbye Like the first time You never really knew me Never ever, never ever saw me Saw me like they did You never really loved me Never really, never really loved me Loved me like they did With some time I might wanna See the way That…

The struggle is real

Hello. I am Sarah and I have Bipolar Disorder. Last night was a bad night. This morning I awoke dreading my shift, but I put on my big girl pants and sucked it up. I got home a bit ago and called my mom. She’s my support system. She encouraged me to call my doctor and get a prescription for the medication I had sampled when I was feeling similar just three weeks ago. It’s ready to pick up at the pharmacy. I have a confession. I could blame the stigma of having a mental illness, but I feel that’s…
