October 25, 2019
Memories you think have left, can still linger in the back of your mind. Anything can trigger it, a smell, a touch, an object...in my case a trust from a precious young girl who opened up to me not long ago and expressed her personal experience very similar to mines. That's when it happened, the&...

    October 24, 2019
    Why does life hit you right where it hurts? I feel so devastated after applying for 8 different positions, going to the interview, and then get the news "NOT SELECTED". I get my hopes up and a boost of motivation at these interviews, I give it my all for what? So I don't get the…

  • Alternative Education Program
    December 13, 2018
    Working at an alternative program isn't easy. You see the students everyday and somehow they become apart of your life. You hear the stories, the jokes, the good and the bad. It can be so overwhelming. A lot of the students love that one on one connection with me and I appreciate that from the&he...

  • Sick/vacation
    December 7, 2018
    Most of the students are out sick with flu/cold and now I'm here at home also sick. Not where I want to be. I have itchy/sticky eyes, watery nose, scratchy throat, lips swollen and dried out, and my body aches. I tried going back to sleep but I can't so I'm here. It'll be two…

The smiles, the laughter, the wild conversations, it feels,..I don't even know, beautiful! This is my first year as an instructional assistant a...

  • What challenge in your life was actually a gift in disguise?
    November 18, 2018
    My BIGGEST challenge was surviving sexual assault/abuse. Not an easy topic to talk or write about but I learned a lot over the years. After the assault I was completely lost, didn't want to talk to anyone, didn't seek help, I was a walking zombie. Empty. Dark. I blamed myself and that lasted for ...

  • Toxic People
    November 18, 2018
    To talk about people who are no good for you...it's hard, especially if those people are the ones you knew your entire life. When is it time to say "enough is enough"? How many times will you be taken for granted and be used like a rag doll every single time they ask for a…

    November 15, 2018
        Its sad­čśó┬áthat I forgot the email I used for this website. I had entries from when I was in high school. I would of loved reading my entries and walk through memory lane! I am glad however, that the site is back and brand new. I guess that means opening a new account…
