I know there are a lot of things I worry about that I shouldn’t. I know there is a lot of weight I voluntarily carry that I should probably put down. I know I spread myself thin at times, and that’s my fault. I know this is how I am. But, in all of that,… Read More Always Here
She stands in the corner with her head down, trying to hide the demons that dance in her eyes. Her body is barely trembling with the fear in her mind taking control of her limbs. Her eyes are closed as she tries her best to calm her breathing and slow down her heart rate before… Read More Elevator from the Past
Can I be honest? I’m a first-generation college student coming from a pretty traditional Asian-American household. Instead of pursuing a career in the medical field like my many aunts and uncles, like my parents wish, and my older sister likewise, I am finding a place for myself in engineering and computer science. Let’s just say… Read More This Is Me…as of Today
Something recently happened…and I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind. I’ve been talking to this classmate/friend of mine, who I just met this summer in class. (Let’s call him Ace.) I’ve been getting frequent phone calls from him asking for help on the codes we need to write for homework. I’ve… Read More “…genuinely sweet…”
I watch my back. What do you expect? I may have my earphones in but the music is soft enough to the point that I can still hear the footsteps behind me getting closer. I may be in the middle of a time-sensitive project but I will still pause when I hear an abnormal sound… Read More
I remember their words, so clearly. “Your sister is smarter.” “You won’t be successful being who you are.” “You care about people too much. Don’t you know none of them genuinely care about you?” “No boy would want to marry someone like you.” “Don’t cry! Are you pathetic?” “You’re just a piece of trash.” “I… Read More Past Words Carried to the Present
There was something I had once said, probably four years ago: “If you want to leave, I won’t make you stay. If you don’t want to go, I won’t be able to push you away.” I look back and still want to believe it to be true. Let’s be honest, we’ve all been lied to,… Read More Is It True???
I’m going to quote myself from last year. My post titled I See You reads: I don’t care how many times you screwed up in your past. I don’t care how much you messed up. I don’t care what things you regret but can’t take back. I don’t care as long as you’ve learned from… Read More Please. Please. Please.
I don’t know where I would be today, if not for you. Through your eyes, my flaws are beautiful and my passion is my drive. Through your eyes, my scars are my stories and my heart is a warrior that survived the storm. Through your eyes, there’s no boundaries blocking my potential and everything that… Read More Precious, Aren’t You
Starting from the time I open my eyes to the moment I finally let myself rest and sleep after a long day, my heart smiles. It loves the ‘good morning’ texts I receive and deliver to you, knowing maybe, just maybe, it’s making you smile too. I hope it reminds you that someone thinks of… Read More Smile, Love
Her smile is beautiful. Her little laugh is adorable. Her heart is magnificent. I know that, every day when I wake up, she is either heading to work or to school. I know every day, how much she cares about me and loves me. I know she wants, more than anything, to be there for… Read More Love, Her
It’s always been one thing to have parents against children on topics such as do’s and do not’s, curfew, television time, etc. but it’s another thing when the silent rule is to remain separate. A father who used to work nearly all hours of the day never saw his children as much as he would… Read More A House Divided
She sits in the chair, leaning back against his chest as he wraps his arms around her waist. She smiles as she makes herself comfortable in his arms. The rain outside pours down, the smell of the weather rushing in from the opened doors. She smiles, she feels safe for the first time in a… Read More Singin’ In The Rain
She sits by herself. Darkness engulfs her from all sides. The one and only source of light shines brightly from the corner. The light shines blue. She stares down at her hands. She is trying her best to hold it together. She is trying not to tremble. She is trying her best. But she can’t… Read More Her Best, Remembers
I wake up, my eyes opening wide taking in the very minimal light that’s in my room. My body wants to bolt up, sudden fear crashing through my mind making my heart race, but I fight it to stay on my back. Closing my eyes, I try to calm myself down knowing it’s just another… Read More Nightmares Disappeared
