Doubt

Sometimes it doesn’t matter what you know in your heart of hearts, doubt still finds a way to creep into your castle of strength and creativity.  You are always your harshest critic.  I know this all too well. Tonight had me questioning my ability to succeed in the English portion of my double major and though… Continue reading Doubt

Good Enough?

In some situations I simply overreact and shut down.  I avoid certain topics until it seems that the person asking me questions has moved on from waiting for my response. I have been working on remedying this trait, which strangely enough only often appears in social situations with close friends.  Asking for help has never been my strong suit.  I’m… Continue reading Good Enough?

Growing Up Sam

Even when I was a kid I thought I was a grown up. I know now that’s not true; I’m still in the process of blossoming, of blooming, of decaying, and rejuvenating.  Just like every other person on the planet I’ll be doing this dance for my entire life.  Birthdays may mark the years, but… Continue reading Growing Up Sam

It’s October

It’s October; I cannot believe it.  Granted it’s only the third today of the month but still, a whole four weeks have passed by and so much has happened.  I’m quite sure that I’ve reevaluated my life a hundred times over since the last time I wrote a blog post; however, I will not bore… Continue reading It’s October

Lost In This World of Twists and Turns

When you get lost for the first time as a child you experience momentary panic.  At least I did, for others that panic might not be so momentary.  But once you move on past the realization that you are not familiar with your surroundings or the people passing you by, a feeling of practicality sets… Continue reading Lost In This World of Twists and Turns
