    TW // Childhood trauma, self-harm, suicide

    Back before my parents met each other, both of them were in previous marriages. My dad had a wife named Veronica, and they had one child who came into my dad's possession after Veronica passed away. That child's name was Bryce, and when my dad re-married, he legally became my half-brother. For most of my life, I didn't really know much about Bryce aside from what I've already stated here, and that he went…

    Back in March of last year, I had a conversation with my friend Billi, who I'd known for about a year and a half at that point. The first wave of COVID had just hit, and suspicions had only just begun to arise that we were going to have to quarantine.

    ★★★★

    Hard to put something so knowingly transcendent of the boundaries of language into…yknow…words, but I’ll try anyway.

The implacable communicative…

    ★★★★

    Captures the feeling of not knowing where you're at in any facet of your life so succinctly and with such immense tenderness. Nothing feels right and anything could change at any time, so the only thing left to do is latch onto the fleeting moments of beauty you find while working out your own insecurities and identities. The only certainty is that there's love somewhere out there in the world, and it's okay to seek it out. If the sun's…

    ★★★★★

    There's so little that I remember about my childhood. I'm still not entirely sure why, but every time I try to look back on my past, it feels like I'm stepping on shattered glass. There's no way to make one cohesive piece of it anymore and there's little beauty to be found in any of it. There are a few memories though - ones that I hold extremely close to me because I know they're some of the only ones…

    Literally the perfect embodiment of everything I’ve been trying to orient myself towards for the past year. Short-circuiting rn, give me a bit.
