Studying

I am angry already. I hate studying. I don’t even have anything I need to study, but just the topic pisses me off. The simple thought of being told what and when I need to learn something disgusts me. I love to learn. I am continually becoming interested in new...

Jacob Vaughan- “I was going to be a father…”

In the Fall of 2016, I found out I was going to be a father for the first time. I was out of breath with normal day to day activities and seemed to always be low on energy. I had a lot of aches and pains, too. Primarily in my back. While at the doctor one time, my...
The Moon

The Moon

I didn’t see the moon last night. Does it even exist anymore? It has been a few nights since I have paid any attention to the moon. I love to gaze at it when it is full, and it lights up the night sky. I appreciate the moon for all of the things I am told it...

The Right Thing

The Right Thing

I do not want to be writing this today. I don’t want to do anything. I’m fatigued, I have been eating poorly, I am sleepy and I have no motivation. I just want to lay in bed and hope that life will deliver happiness and prosperity to my pillow. That...
Pillows

Pillows

“There is no pillow so soft as a clear conscience” –French proverb My pillow is a destination. At the top of my bed, there is a base, a place where I go to check-in on myself. Within the two softness of the rectangle lay the area for the silent...
