Yes.

Turns out that I’ll be living in a brownstone with a room to myself next year. I couldn’t be more excited about this!

The amount of feels that this music video gives me is absolutely incredible. I haven’t felt like a music video has described my current situation better in a very very long time.

An Explanation of the Past Month

     I’m not quite sure why I want to share this here, but I figure that this is the internet, and part of the internet is sharing human experiences. Here it goes:

     Over the past two semesters, I have used Tumblr to post poetry, essays, pictures, progress on music, and other forms of documenting my growth as a person. This all stopped about a month ago, and I feel like anyone that pays attention (I’m not sure if there are any) deserve to know what happened and what I am doing now. 

     About a month ago, on the night of May 22nd I was almost in a deadly car accident on a drive to a friend’s house. The car, going around 100 mile per hour almost crashed into me at the deadly speed. I drove with white knuckles to my friend’s house, watched the hockey game as planned, and drove home. I spent the entire night and part of the day after in a sense of shock.

     That close encounter with death, as minor as it may have been triggered something for me. It helped me realize that I am not going to live forever and that over all, life is a pretty fragile thing. As I have always tried to do, I’ve taken this energy and tried to put it towards something positive. 

     Over the past month I feel like I have been living more deliberately. I have finally found the courage to start working on one of my main dreams, releasing art-rap. I always let myself be discouraged by others. I always thought this was a foolish dream, but after my experience I don’t feel like I have anything to lose. I have been trying to reach out to others in my own way too. It’s hard with social anxiety, but I have been trying my hardest to be more social than ever. 

     I am hoping that I can come back to writing now. I want to start posting poetry and essays again, even if no one reads them. It’s just something that I enjoy doing. I won’t have internet access for the next month, but I am going to try my best to write things through my phone. Cheers.

the buffer law in massachusetts, that makes a legal distance pro-life protesters need to stand away from abortion clinics and planned parenthoods just got revoked today because it “it violates the first amendment for free…

Normally, I would agree that free speech should indefinitely protected, BUT the first amendment does not protect all speech and there are areas where you can’t say certain things such as: yelling “fire” in a movie theatre or “bomb” on an airplane. These are in place because it protects others. In the case of the safe zone, it is protecting people that are seeking a type of medical treatment. The same way harassment is illegal everywhere else, it should be illegal near abortion clinics as well.
