I am a writer, a poet, a student, a teacher, a social activist, and a hopeless romantic. All before breakfast.
am obsessed with music, poetry, fiction, and with seeking out beauty,
in all its forms, in a world sadly deficient of both beauty and dreams.
I recently graduated from Kennesaw State University with a degree in
secondary English education.
Everything you need to know about someone, you can tell by what they believe.
believe in honor and chivalry; love at first sight and the purity of
shadows. I believe that if there is a God, then God has better things to
do than worry about gay marriage or whether the ten commandments are
posted in an Alabama courthouse.
I believe in good and evil, right
and wrong, karma and destiny. I believe that patriotism is not blindly
accepting what the government tells you, but having the courage to
question authority and the status quo.
I believe in poetry. I believe that the pen is mightier than the sword.
I believe in heroes and villains. I believe in Spider-Man.
believe in Holden Caulfield and The Great Santini, Joe Kavalier and Blue Vanmeer, Jubal Harshaw and Scout Finch. I believe that if you know
what books all these characters come from, you might be my soulmate.
I believe in my instincts and my dreams.
believe in my family, both those I was born with and the friends that
have become family through the things we've overcome together.
believe in giving a hand up, but not a hand out. I believe in helping
others. I believe in random acts of kindness. I believe that willful
ignorance should be met with deadly force.
I believe that writing is the only thing that keeps me sane.
I believe that there is no more beautiful place than Asheville, NC.I believe that snowball fights are good for the soul.
believe that if I could communicate with the world entirely in haiku, I
might be more coherent. I believe in the primal power of a bonfire.
I believe that if I was in a situation where I had to lay down my life to save the life of another, I would not hesitate.
believe that life is too short to drink cheap beer. I believe in
boobies. I believe in the concept of peace. I believe that some things
are worth fighting for. I believe that puppies, butterflies, and little
girls exist to be beautiful.
I believe that we all hold within us
the power to create beauty somehow. I believe that art is more important
than anything else, because it is a creation that can transcend even
our own lives, our own civilization.
I believe in the dream of someone reading something I wrote a century from now, and feeling then what I felt when I wrote it.
I believe that love is all that matters. I believe in banana pudding. I believe that we were all meant to shine.
I believe in you.
