Day Two

3 Apr

Symptomatic 

 

The symptoms of catastrophe,

a recipe for disaster,

is the mixture of a sickness 

and widespread disbelief. 

Day One

1 Apr

It’s national poetry writing month again! I’ve decided not to do it this year….April Fools! Here’s my first poem.

The Beaten Path

To find the beaten path
is not as easy as it seems.

What’s beaten for you,
may not appear the same to me.

Though I’ve travelled through the woods,
it’s getting clearer everyday.

The beaten path, it lies ahead,
almost within my reach.

Guess Who’s Back?

9 Aug

Has it really been three months since I’ve posted? I’m ashamed. I fully intended to maintain this blog even after I graduated. In fact, I intended to maintain it better after I graduated.

It’s been a busy three months full of changes. For starters, which you probably could have guessed by now, I graduated from college. If you recall from previous posts, I was supposed to start graduate school this fall…today in fact. But that didn’t happen. It was a choice I made, however difficult, not to pursue it at the moment. Some things are all about timing, and right now just wasn’t the time for that particular step.

BUT…good things still came my way, miraculously. I had been accepted to go to graduate school for College Student Affairs and Administration. And though I had to decline, I knew that was still what I wanted to do. I wanted to work with college students, and I was fortunate enough to get a job doing just that. I am now working as an admissions counselor for a college in Augusta, GA.. and I love it! (after the whole moving to a new city in only 2 weeks thing that is.)

After the initial shock of how fast everything went, it was everything I hoped it would be. I get to do something I love everyday, and still have time to write when I get home. I’ve been here for almost a month now, and I’m thrilled.

So, now that I’ve taken the plunge back into my blog, hopefully you’ll be hearing from me more often.

Weekly Treasure #11

6 May

The essay that I read this week was just beautiful. It’s one of those essays that can take something so small or simple, and turn it into a really great story. The essay is called Mildred and it was written by Felda Brown. You can read it here!

The author of this essay turns a simple situation, like finding a family of raccoons in her house, into a beautiful work about trust and kindness.

She really humanized the animals, something that I really appreciate as an avid animal lover, by naming them and viewing them as “mothers” or “babies” and not just pests.

Throughout the whole essay her descriptions and comments are fantastic. I really enjoyed reading it.

Day Thirty!!

1 May

I guess I’m never satisfied,
because I hate to wait
for things to come my way.
But when these things arrive,
I only want to turn back time.
I need to learn to appreciate
each moment of my day,
and thankful for the things that come.

Day Twenty Nine

30 Apr

Easy

You make it seem so easy
to play the victim.
Always convincing everyone around
that you’ve been hurt.
But now we’ve learned to see beneath the lies,
to know that we’ve been hurting all along.

Day Twenty Eight

29 Apr

I’ve Had Enough

I’m done listening
to all of your excuses.
I have had enough.
