Before I Was Phoenix Crimson

Back in middle school, I began writing a book. It compared me to my alter ego, a version of my childhood imaginary friend, Alexa. I would write about something that happened to me at school and how I reacted to it and then follow it up with what Alexa would have done. I think IContinue reading “Before I Was Phoenix Crimson”

Does “Adulting” Ever Become Genuine?

Today’s Theme Song: “Neverland” by Zendaya I don’t remember where I saw it, but I read a quote that said something along the lines of, “There is no such thing as an adult.

Slight Brain Dump

Question: What am I doing with my life? Answer: Everything and nothing all at the same time. I am a complete master of “thinking” and “dreaming”, But “doing” is not my strong suit.

If I Had A Writing Room…

(Prompt: Writing room: A genie has granted your wish to build your perfect space for reading and writing. What’s it like?) … it would exude the aroma of Mandarin Orange Spice Tea.

A Book Of My Life…Would I Read It?

(Prompt: “This is your life. If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.”) Simply put, NO! One of the most beautiful things about life is that it is so unpredictable.
