Jack of all trades

I bet you've heard of the Jack of all trades expression before, but have you heard the full version? Jack of all trades, master of none, though often times better than master of one. I grew up only knowing half of the expression. Jack of all trades, master of none. The expression put such a downside to … Continue reading Jack of all trades

Home

It’s simply insane sometimes Of how much we put into our lives Only hoping the memory of us will live For others to come   I have heard stories of others Of how they stood bravely Only fighting on their hopes and dreams For the life they desired   Yet those who love, find another … Continue reading Home

Blogs without the love (2017)

Sometimes with the way the world works, not all of my posts are known well. Some of my best posts have drowned in the water before it could swim. Not many new people will look back on them anymore.

Instead of writing short stories to get my name out there, I'm writing essays over British poems in the Romantic era. Instead of editing my novel more, I'm learning about different Japanese grammar points. I'm not making connections … Continue reading Is college holding me back?

Am I good enough?

There’s one sentence that always haunts a writer’s mind. Am I good enough? The story, which is a part of us, is almost like our own child and it’s scary that our own stories cause us to wonder: Am I good enough? Even if it’s the story that needs to be fixed, the blame is … Continue reading Am I good enough?

She’s an interesting addition to our dorm life. But she’s also a handful. Being … Continue reading Writing with a demand for attention
