Her brightness first started in her heart before spreading up to her fingers and then out into the world, touching everyone who needed a bit of color in their life.

Heroes

Photo by Christina Morillo
You can't just denounce someone as a hero, it just means that they're not a hero to you because they don't fit with your own personal values. A hero is different for everybody, and there could be more than one. And that's what a lot of people (especially on my Facebook feed) seem to forget because they're busy undermining someone's value because it doesn't fit with what they personally believe in.

So my message to you is that just because they're not your hero personally, doesn't mean that they're not a hero to someone else.

Heading back into it... kind of

I didn't realize how many things changed til I came back to it. For example, whenever I read YA literature, I can't help but see the teenagers as kids because that's exactly what they are. Kids who suffer and must overcome their suffering in some way or learn to deal with it like any other character in literature. After all, that's what makes stories, stories.
As mentioned before in a previous post, I'm starting to get back into my old hobbies, writing creatively being one of them. However, throughout the years, the only way I could write creatively is either through being really inspired, it depends on my grade, or if there's a challenge. Since it's summer that challenge happens to be Camp Nanowrimo. It's like the regular National Novel Writing Month challenge in November. However, I didn't realize until this year that you can set your own word count goal or that it was in July. The last time I've done the summer challenge was back when I was in high school, so approximately fours ago.
So in the middle of the night, I've decided to get back into it. I don't have much of a plan, which makes it all the more fun. All I know so far is that it's going to be a bunch of short stories based on a bunch of writing prompts that I've collected throughout the years on tumblr and that it's going to be in this fantasy world that I've created way back when I was a weird/random jr. high schooler. And just saying that makes me feel old.
However, it will be a good way to start writing again. Hopefully, this will help me build more dedication and a motivation to start writing again on my own once the month is over, without any challenges or grades looming over my shoulder.

forgetting

i forgot the meaning of me.
i forgot what my joys, my hates, my loves, my mind are anymore.
i forgot to follow up.
i forgot the purpose.
i forgot to enjoy the challenges of growing up.
i forgot to reap the rewards of adulthood.
instead, i retreat to the familiar corner of my mind and relax, dreading the eventual end that will come if i-

Who am I writing this for?

This blog has always been for me. For me to post some thoughts that I can't let waste away in some journal somewhere that will probably end up on eBay being sold for $30. However, writing for myself only gets me so far.
It's nice to know that there are actual humans who aren't spamming bots from a weird Russian or dentist site reading my work. And it's nice to hear some of you compliment my writing whether it's through comments, emails, direct messages, or even just listening to it out loud.
As time goes on, it's kind of easy to forget that I have you all wonderful people. So I apologize about that. Honestly though, thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Without you all, my blog would not have made it this far in the past seven years.
Without you, my blog would have probably turned into a weird journal that some random person decided to impersonate and then sell on eBay for $25 (not unless that's not already being done... if so, please message me so that I can receive my respected royalty at some point.)
Thank you again!
