Pulling the record out of the album cover. Hearing the needle run over the vinyl when you place it on. The surface noise that accompanies the music. The vintage look of the albums.

Because the Texans game was less than amazing, why don’t I take this time to give you an inside scoop on Texan tailgating. Texans may not have racked up many points in the actual football game, but the fans came out in force like always. All throughout the parking lots fans were out playing games,...

That I had to be careful of my opportunities being taken away from me And due to beauty standards I had to give up the idea of someone ever wanting to be with me What I wasn’t told was that...

People like me try to place ourselves on a humble pedestal as if such a thing exists. People like me live inside our minds because it’s where we feel safest.

Reading used to be my entire life. Books were my way to escape reality into hundreds of different worlds, but recently I’ve noticed something rather annoying. Books turned into book. I had been reading the same novel, over and over, just with a different cover. Did I miss something? Most popular young...

Part I I know more than most my soul will not make it to heaven, for it is too tainted. I abused my freedom with thoughts of rage and fascinations of the unknown. I found comfort in my fantasies and peace in knowing my sins are just human nature. I'm greedy with those I love the most. I have this...
