I dreamed of doing a high school program at To Write Love On Her Arms. for over two years. Last year it became a reality and this year we had our first term. Today is the final day for all our Spring 2012 schools. So thankful for all of their support and hard work.
“I’m here.” “I’m not going anywhere.” “I will prove myself.” And yet…I haven’t heard from you in weeks. I don’t need you to ever talk to me again, which is what I said back in December when you decided to show up (again). I told you I didn’t believe anything you said. And I had been content with where things imploded the...

spacestationsandrocketships: Sometimes I feel as if certain friends only talk to me when they’re in need of advice or just want to rant. While I say that ‘if you need to vent, call me’, I don’t mean only talk to me when you need to vent, and not other time. I feel as if I hold too many other peoples problems. Well, I know I hold to many others problems. Problems, secrets, the lot. I don’t mind...

“Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call. Go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone. Don’t wait for them to give you a sign, because it might never come. Don’t let people happen to you. Don’t let me happen to you, or her. She’s not a fucking television show or a tornado.

I have a “Verse-A-Day” Bible app on my phone. It gives a verse and followed by commentary. I loved yesterday’s commentary so much. It was so applicable later that evening when I got some frustrating news about my student loans. It was a perfect reminder. I love how God works like that. Ecclesiates 7:8-9 The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better...

What was the point of it? The point of you and me and those summers? I know during the days and nights I kept thinking how all of it really mattered. I felt like I was on the inside of a rare story. It seemed so one of a kind. But now, when I try to go over the significance of it, I fail to see any. It was a girl and a boy who whispered, “I love you,” and “Always,” and “I miss you,” but only...

My most serious ex and I have been broken up for almost 6 years. He’s had the same girlfriend (mind you, a former friend and coworker of ours) for 5 of them. In the three years we dated, which included a year of living together, he couldn’t be faithful for more than a few months. We’d break up for a little while and inevitably get back together. They haven’t. It’s...
