Don’t Text Angry

We’ve heard the expression “don’t drunk text.” But have you ever heard anyone say “don’t text angry?” It’s the truth.

There Should Be An Empathy Class in Schools

I was talking to my friend Jess, and she is a sensitive person like me. Unfortunately, there is a lack of empathy in our school system.

Self Doubt is Part of My Life

I am full of self-doubt a lot of the time. I’m not sure entirely why this is, but it’s been around for as long as I can remember. Since I was a child I have second-guessed myself. I doubt my abilities even though I know inside I am capable of doing stuff. I am good at acting, writing, […]
