The Reason is ‘You’

You’re the reason for the tears I desperately try to hide from my pillows. You’re the reason I hug my pillow so tight and put one leg over it. You’re the reason I sleep in an uncomfortable position. You’re the reason I’m hurting. You frustrate me. You’re irresistible. You ignore[…]

MvL to SS (The Battle he Won)

Walks towards the stage. Goes up to the microphone. Testing one, two, three. Tapping the mic afterward. It’s been two years since he came to the WordPress community. We started at WP around the same time but met in August because of the daily prompts. I found his hilarious take[…]

MOBAs and the Promise of a Good Year

It’s January 8th. That means just a week until the next payday! And I can’t wait to share with you what I have in store for my year. It’s almost the middle of the month and I plan on finishing my new year’s resolution list before then. So back to[…]
