The Thoughts I Don’t Speak

The many people in my life blur together whenever I think back on my life as I wonder what would have happened if I said what I thought. So many thoughts. So many emotions. Too much to put books, even the clarity of writing would be futile at the vastness of it all. Thoughts buzz…

A Letter to Loved Ones

I am blessed beyond measure. I have been given a life I don’t deserve, a life I could never fully repay. My reality must be a fantasy to some. Why is it so hard for me to realize that? How can I not see how good I have it sometimes, to the point where my…

Ambiguous

My reality remains ambiguous, uncertain, vague. Never knowing, always wondering. Never seeing, always wishing. I worry what others think of me. I worry that if I don’t think right, look right, or seem like I have everything together and an exuberant personality and charm to match my life, people won’t like me. People won’t notice…

Unreachable

I’m never enough. Why must my dreams be so cut off from reality? Why is there no intersection of fantasy and fact? Life is never as perfect as I dream it to be, and I am never as whole as everyone seems to be around me. Why must I be different? Apart from everyone? All…

A Moment

This is just a random stream of thought I had late at night in the library. The library is loud with a cacophony of colors as people walk around. They are quiet, yet loud with their movement. I should be studying. Instead, I feel sentimental. Nostalgic. Melancholic. Most of the time, I surrender to my…

A Testimony of Sorts

This is random. Sort of. If you’re┬áreading this, cool. I guess I wrote for me. For a very long time, as a Christian, I had trouble believing God loved me. At least, I knew it. But I didn’t feel it. Sure, I’ve been blessed over and over with a great family, close friends, chances to…

A Stream of Thoughts – #2 – On Being Unique and Alone

It’s easy to think I’m overly unique. While I’m good at understanding how other people are feeling, it’s easy to isolate myself from the crowd and feel I’m special. Sure, I’m unique, quirky, quiet, but lots of people are. I’ve got my own gifts and ideas that can’t be shared with others. There are a…

The INFP College Experience

My first semester living on campus is almost to a close. Crazy how life-changing 3 months can be. Sorry for the late post, I’ll mention. Felt the need to both write something and reminisce for once on the experiences of the past semester, thus the purpose of this post. Like the title suggests, this post…

Aesthetic

At the college I go to, there is a “cafe” in one of the student centers that has several snacks and drinks for students to buy. Usually if I want to buy something sweet but relatively cheap, I’ll get a glass bottle of soda. My friends will often ask why I’m getting the glass bottle…

The Insincerity of Time

I am constantly surprised by how much I realize about myself as I grow older. Some days, I feel I’m as innocent as a child to the human condition, oblivious to how people think and feel. Other days, I feel wise in comparison to others around me, seeing things and patterns that hardly anyone in…
