I walked into the sunset,
To try and settle
A once forgotten bet,
I made with my soul many years ago,
A lost and found case
That had grown cold,
I searched and searched
To the ends of the earth
To find my weary, wandering heart,
Lost in eternal valleys,
An endless row of dreamless alleys,
But I lost my mind instead,
As warm colors
Inside my head,
Then the twilight did descend,
A hollow night,
No conceivable end,
The glittering flecks of silver light,
Diamonds shining starry bright,
Infinitely, the empty shade did stretch,
As stars did fall,
And I tried to catch
But one did I succeed to capture
In my hand
My eyes held in rapture,
I saw myself
Full, of hope and joy,
Reflected in this bright clear toy
Which was not mine,
The universe did own,
And I wished and hoped it would take me home,
The light, shining light,
Burst beams into the dark,
And in that bright I found my heart,
Freedom sought and freedom found,
From a place that knew no bound,
Out of the sunset I did walk,
The sunrise met me,
But did not mock,
My foolish ways of sad despair,
But wrapped me up in gentle care.

Wrote an outline for a new article/blog post idea I came up with! Hopefully I can submit this one as well if it turns out. Plan to work on it tomorrow after I take my employment test, which is used to determine whether or not I qualify for an interview, so maybe I can eventually get this damn job! We’ll see! Definitely more excited about writing than taking this test :(
Honestly, your stance on same sex marriage really doesn’t have anything to do with your sexual orientation. I’m assuming from this message that you’re pro same sex marriage, due to what your Mom said? I am very pro same sex marriage, and pro equal rights, and I happen to be a heterosexual woman, so they’re not necessarily connected to one another. Also, there’s nothing wrong with not having had a boyfriend, there’s really no rush at all. I’m in my 20’s and I haven’t been in many relationships, I’ve been focused on other stuff, and that’s ok, there’s no rush, trust me! Your sexual orientation is truly your own personal business, not your mother’s, and there’s nothing wrong with discovering who you’re interested in and sexually attracted to. It’s ok to be attracted men, women, whomever, honestly, it’s really whatever works for you. If you’re sure you’re heterosexual, just say, “Mom, I am pro same sex marriage (if that’s your stance), and I’m also straight.” Or, casually mention to her the name of a boy you like, even if it’s only slightly, and she’ll get the picture. Or, if you’re still discovering your sexuality, that’s totally fine too. There’s nothing wrong with exploring your interests and finding what you like, who you like, and who you’re sexually interested in. If you’re still discovering your sexuality, I wouldn’t say anything to her, and just live your life, and find yourself however works best for you.
There’s no right or wrong way to live your life, love is love, and everyone should be able to love whomever they choose to love, and we should all be grateful love exists, in every way it exists, in this world :) Hope this helps dear! X
Thank you so much!!! That’s so sweet of you to say, I’m very grateful, thank you for your kind words! :)
Ooooh, good question! Top of my list at the moment is Australia. It’s somewhere I’ve wanted to go my whole life, I’ve hung out with a few Aussies in my time, and they have made me want to visit even more. There’ve actually been a few people in my life that have made me want to visit, so that’s number one right now!
I’ve also always wanted to visit the places my ancestors came from, and I’ve already been to four (England, Ireland, Scotland, and France), but there’s a few more, Wales, Germany, Switzerland, and The Netherlands, that I’d like to visit one day as well! After that, there are many, many, many more countries all around the world that I’d like to visit!
Great question, thanks! And thanks for reaching out and sending such a nice message, I really appreciate it! X
That’s a tough one! I understand how tough long distance relationships can be, I’m sorry that you all are going through a rough patch at the moment! Are you unhappy because you all are so far apart? Or, are you unhappy because there are other girls? I wasn’t sure if that was implied in the message, since you said your were jealous, or if that was a more general thing. I know how hard it can be, but sometimes there just has to be mutual trust, and the belief that the other person loves you, and will not cheat, if that’s something you’re concerned about. I know many friends of mine that have been in very long term, long distance relationships, and some worked out, and some didn’t. Tbh, it all just depends on the two people in the relationship, and their choice to stay together, even when things are a bit bad and distance becomes a problem. Honestly, it’s really your call. If you’re really unhappy, and it’s taking a toll on the rest of your life, then maybe it’s a good idea to take a break. If you’re unhappy, but being apart from him would make you even more unhappy, then maybe it’s worth working out, and staying together, despite the distance. It’s truly your call. You kind of have to decide, is the love for him greater than the sadness you feel right now? If so, I would give it another go, and work on it, tbh. I hope this helps! Let me know who everything goes! X
It was one of those days
When the world seemed at your feet
Like the sun was shining solely for you,
And dreams were starting to come to life.
It was one of those days
When everything seemed endless,
Life, love, happiness.
When dreams seemed to realize themselves.
It was one of those days,
You know the ones
When everything seems possible…
You know those days too.
When something happens,
Like a light switch in your brain,
And possible becomes
And everything is nothing
And hope evaporates
Back up into that secret place
Where it lives
In that quiet corner
Of the universe
That we’re all always searching for.
It was one of those days.
