What It Feels Like To Love Yourself

What It Feels Like To Love Yourself

Filed under Tom Tom, What It Feels Like

I used to wake up every single morning and look in the mirror, only to see a reflection I  despised; one so cold and unfriendly that if it had the chance to run away from me, it would. I used to spend every single morning dragging my lifeless body to the scale to weigh a body that seemed so foreign...

They were arguing again. How could I take it? Every time he was home, they argued. The arguing didn’t even make sense. It was stupid, taking out the mail shouldn’t be that hard, they didn’t need to argue all the time. I couldn’t stop it, I couldn’t get them to stop it. It was just so loud....

When I was born, everybody was ready. My parents were ready to have their third child. My extended family was ready to assist in any way they could upon hearing another Petty kid was about to be born. My sisters were ready to have a baby brother, the first male sibling they would experience. Friends of my...

Working at a school can bring about a whole new perspective on the way different people live their everyday lives. When I had first heard about a student who had been bragging about going to McDonald’s three nights in a row until dark, and not just to indulge in a Happy Meal, but to keep warm and not ...

This one time at band camp, one of the trombone players left a gallon of chocolate milk in the band room. Little did he know at the time, the gallon of milk would sit in the band room for weeks. Months later, it would spill, making not only the band room smell, but the entire school reek of spoiled mi...

E4 specialist to E5 promotable of the US Army to Lieutenant O’Brien of the Antioch Fire Department, but one thing stayed the same: defend the red, white and blue. I knew when I turned 18, I would defend the red, white and blue for the rest of my life. It all happened so fast. I was moving from diff...

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...

Filed under Tom Tom, What It Feels Like

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. ...
