Opportunist, Optimist

Sometimes the most interesting moments are the ones which follow a wrong turn down a road which is not the shortcut, but it proves to be a shortcut, but you get to see the new foals and the silhouetted trees fencing in a pink sky, and a billowing crimson cloud dressed in every silver lining.

How to Say Goodbye Forever

To a friend, who’s going international and not returning, to clarify. And the short answer is, you can’t. If you know it’s the last time, you’ve just got to look at them and try and make yourself remember this moment a little better than it remembers everything else, but it can’t really.

A Stone Staircase

If the world isn’t flat, maybe it has steps and if everyone is making their way up and down the steps then one person’s triumphant step up is another’s stumble down. so when a person trips, and slides to their rock bottom, it may be higher or lower than another’s rock bottom. one person’s suffering…… Continue reading A Stone Staircase

16 Things 2016 Taught Me

1. Better late than never. If your assignment’s 3 days late, still do it. If the soccer match started 5 minutes ago and you’re just pulling up, play extra hard. If you’re 20 minutes late to brunch- thanks your friend for waiting. Actually, just try to stop doing that last one. 2. How to pour…… Continue reading 16 Things 2016 Taught Me
