I recently read Nobody by Susan Warner. While it is technically in the romance genre, I really enjoyed it because there was a deeper question and theme that wound itself through the whole book – is it possible to buy happiness?

I sit down at my computer to write a post on something that I didn’t think I’d get another chance to write on.

Where did June go? Man, you guys, this month just flew by. I blinked and the calendar had switched from June to July. It doesn't really feel like summer. It's hot, but it's also been insanely rainy.

You’re lonely in a room full of people. You watch companionship from a distance and feel empty arms embrace you. Sometimes a single tear, sometimes a torrent, rushes down your hallow cheeks and stings your bruised lips. As you walk by rows of perfect people, you hang your head but still feel their stinging eyes … Continue reading To the misfits, the outcasts, the broken and the scarred
I absolutely love apple cider vinegar. It has a very acidic, unique taste and I don't know anyone else who likes it like I do or who likes it at all now that I come to think about it.

Once upon a time, I took a walk. I was restless and searching for something – I didn’t know what. A few minutes from my house, I passed an old man. His right hand trembled.
