on life goals

unedited. taken on the bridge to school.

currently listening to: walk the moon
currently reading: the catcher in the rye

but mother, can't you see
she's the one that ties me to the mast when the siren songs of shower heads
ring between my ears?

i thought that being happy required a certain set of rules. of goals set. i was going to be a graphic designer in some big city, maybe new york, have my own blog and fanbase to follow, go to school somewhere renown and have a double major, aesthetic apartment. macbook pro, cats. interestingly enough i never thought about my relationship status. skinny.

dog on stage, or, my poetry got published!

Monday, January 12, 2015
Around October the school hosted a workshop with the amazing spoken word poet, Neil Hilborn. He would give us prompts and we would write poems, share them, and generally have fun! It was such a great experience and I really hope we get to do it again, someday.

a true sign of writers: peace signs

Additionally, Neil did a show! And a poem with my brilliant classmates!!


The school's literary magazine, dog on stage, was so kind as to publish one of the poems i wrote during his workshop! Feel free to check it out here!!!!!! And check out the rest of the issue, which includes a poem from one of the greatest writing partners ever, misha, and other great things!!! wow so much fun!!!
