A Letter from the Future

Hey BoBylan. I hope that you are doing well. I know right now you are uncertain, writing a whole book sounds daunting. But, I’m here to tell you that you’ve made it. The first book was rough, you put so much time and energy into it,  but didn’t get the feedback that you wanted. You…

I’m going to be a writer

A romance writer. An…..average writer.. *tips hat to name of blog Vien Huynh – 4/27/2016, 4:03PM.  

What, then, have you been escaping from?

I feel like an amateur doctor, performing surgery on herself. I know I probably shouldn’t open these doors, but I’m curious to see what’s on the other side. It’s a dangerous strategy, you see. To unlock doors into old memories my mind picked to save. I hope to find clues that could solve the mystery I uncovered last. “What, then, have…

A trip into dark places

Follow me as I go on this trip down to places I shouldn’t go too often. It’s going to be relieving and so damaging. I have egg whites smothered with cheddar cheese and avocado on top. A bowl of warm queso cheese to pair with barbecue chips, and last but most likely not all, I have Kaitlyn’s…

She Said Impossible

You’re unattractive, you’re unintellegent You’re overweight, you’re under pressure You’re wasting time, you’re wasting money You need to get your life together Put up the typewriter and the papers Get up from bed put on your shoes Trade in your creativity for excel sheets Dreams don’t come true for someone like you And that was the last thing that…

A conversation with Professor Patty Ward

I was annoyed with her simply because of her sarcasm given freely as she sat on the pedicure chair. But, eventually I took out my earbuds because that annoyance turned to admiration. She was real and full of sarcasm and jokes. When I asked her how she was, she said not great because she was turning 65…

Convo with Mom

I have so much respect for the struggle and successes that my mom and dad accumulated throughout their lifetime. But dang. Can a girl get some support on her decision and belief in her abilities? This is how I perceived the telephone conversation I just had with my mom: Mom: Your dad and I have…

Morning Panics

The first thought I have when I open my eyes after a night long sleep, is, what am I doing with my life. I get a rush of panic, I get this…caffeinated ache in my heart that I interpret as “you’re doing the wrong thing!”. I don’t know what I’m doing. I had to repeat to…

When in California, You Feel Lost

You’re on the back patio at the duplex. It’s a bit chilly but you’re protected by two layers of pants, socks, two jackets and the pink blanket with diamond patterns. You’re a bit nauseous from a cigarette. You know you should stop smoking, at the very least because it makes you feel nauseous, but you…

Dear Future BoBylan

You are such a restless soul. You touch only the tip of each possible path like you’re running suicide drills. The effort is there but the time you spend on each thought amounts to very little. Only enough for you to think you’re still suitable which is enough to unharm your ego. Don’t target this characteristic and label it a good or…
