Land, Wasted

When I was in year 11 and striving to meet the requirements of a good English student, I signed up for the extension English class. I was really excited about it; I considered myself to be a word person, and even though I only received average grades in English, I knew I could do it. […]

Write in Childhood

I love reflecting on childhood. I love stories of childhood and the way they impact us all. I love how, even though childhoods contain both good and bad, we can all look back and reminisce on what once was. While I love romance and adventure and the beautiful every day of adulthood, I love novels […]

March 2020 Reading

March wasn’t the biggest reading month, but I’m still happily making my way through a few books I’ve been reading for a while. One of which being The Woman in White (Wilkie Collins). I’m really enjoying it, but am only getting through a few pages a day due to the small font and heavy writing […]

Change / Poem

I wrote this poem during a recent quiet time with God. Usually when I write creatively about Jesus I won’t post it on my blog because it’s not neat, it’s just words that aren’t edited or properly ordered. But today I thought I may as well. We’re all human, and things get a little messy […]

a perfect life.

I want to write something really good. I want to write all the words that mean something important. I want to publish all the words that mean something important. I want to write about everything that means something to me. I want to write about everything that means something to God. I want a room […]

A Dive into Independence

Time is a funny thing. On one hand, it feels like I’ve been ‘moved out’ forever. It’s very normal, even though it’s only been two weeks. While my time has been up and down (down being knocking my bottle of olive oil on the floor and spending twenty minutes trying to make the floor not-slippery) […]

Lost / Poem

Seedlings planted in soil, Bees prepared for pollen. The promise of a rainy season. Hope comes with each beginning, This no exception. Growing requires dedication. But they bloomed too early, Thinking it was spring. Left yearning for sunlight, a drink. You tried to make things right, But nothing seemed to stick. Is there a love […]

always learning, always laughing

One of my units for this trimester at uni is a communications course. We’re studying media and film techniques. I didn’t think I would enjoy the course that much, but yesterday morning I accidentally watched ten minutes of a movie with mute on. Not on purpose. I was watching the movie, thinking about the actors’ […]

Apology / Poem

A poem about apologies: recycled words sit in my mouth / grate like sandpaper against my tongue / I’m sorry / only they are not my words / but what everyone else is whispering / I pick up apologies and carry them home / they marinate in the kitchen / but they do not hold […]

the other side of myself

I wonder what my day would have looked like had I still been living at home. The tea would taste the same, probably. My stress over the start of this trimester at uni would be the same, probably. The knowledge that I have friends scattered in different directions is the same, most definitely. I’ve moved, […]
