What It Feels Like To Have A Friend Move Away

Filed under Tom Tom, What It Feels Like

When you told me you had to go, I thought it was just another one of your jokes. The ones that are meant to be nightmares and you would laugh about how I reacted to them. But this time, that nightmare that you told me was a reality. All of my favorite memories together don’t feel the same. It’s l...

When I first started to teach it was work, eat, sleep, repeat. There is not that much free time at the beginning. I was drowning in the workload. To balance the work I have to constantly  reprioritize so the things that need to get done get done. Sleep is last on the list otherwise I feel guilt towards...

I had always had this feeling, this assumption that something was different. I felt that I was a part of my family, but I also wasn’t at the same time. I had always questioned why I looked nothing like my mom and dad, and neither did my brother or sister. Little did I know that my questions would soon be...

I was about 10 years old when I was told by the doctors there would be no more dance practices or long weekends filled with soccer. I never really understood. I would constantly asking, why me? Why was I diagnosed with Marfan’s Syndrome. The one thing I did know was my life was going to be changed fo...

I feel like I just opened up really. Kind of like a butterfly coming out of a cocoon, just like “bam,” that’s who I am. An extrovert is the person that you either love, hate or just put up with in class. They’re the person that shouts out an answer to any question. They’re the person who can ma...

Tick. Tick. Tick. I knew it was going to happen. Tick. Tick. Tick. There was nothing I could do about it. I knew the pain she was going through and for months, I knew the time was coming. She was eventually going to leave, head for that better place. The most bittersweet feeling I’ve ever felt. ...

Filed under Tom Tom, What It Feels Like

I open my eyes, roll over and check to see if I have received a text from my best friend. Usually, I don’t have any notifications when I first wake up, but I just have to look. As I get up and get ready to start my day, a slight feeling of emptiness sets in; the morning is when I feel the most alon...

Filed under Tom Tom, What It Feels Like

I am stuck in this hell that you have forever created for me, and I will never be able to escape because you will always be a part of me. I loved spending time with you because you are my mother, and who doesn’t love their mother? I would always love you and thought you would always love me. It never ...

My softball journey began seven years ago. I didn’t realize how many bumps I would face along the way to achieve not just my goal, but my dream. It may just be a game for some people, but to me it is something that I love. There were multiple times I considered just giving up, but one amazing oppor...

We lived a happy life among the hilly landscapes of a traditional Austrian city. An average day consisted of my going to school, coming home on public transportation and eating lunch. After our large midday meal, I did my homework and played outside with my siblings. Our family shared this lifestyle wit...

Filed under Tom Tom, What It Feels Like

When I close my eyes, the world is such a big place. With my imagination the possibilities are endless. My mind races as each corner of the world is filled with thoughts that if other people could hear, they would interpret them as insanity. I close my eyes and the world is still. I am the world, the w...

“Middle school was the best,” they would say. When you looked like a beaver who dyed her hair one too many times, that statement changed. Because when you looked at me - which I doubt you had, cause man oh man, I surely wouldn’t have - you saw a girl who craved popularity. A girl who strived t...
