    Is the way I secretly feel when something is so good and then I sabotage my feelings undetectable to other people? I tell myself it is, but what if it isn’t?

  • Evelyn commented on the post, simple 6 years, 3 months ago

    It was a simple choice. I could either choose to stay here, or choose to go back. And I thought going back was the answer, but then I realized, the past is the past and I am where I am for a reason. It’s simple.

  • Evelyn commented on the post, object 6 years, 3 months ago

    The object of my affection. Isn’t that a movie or something? I think it’s called something else, but do you know what I’m talking about? The one with Jenn Aniston and Paul Rudd? It was basically the only non-funny movie that Paul Rudd was in.

    Under the moon, under the stars, under the great big sky. It’s literally been forever since I’ve just laid down outside and stared up at the never-ending sky full of beautiful stars and designs and mysteries and wonder. That’s one of the few places I am truly at peace and in awe.

    I always hear people talking about shopping locally and giving back to the community by shopping with local vendors. There is this awesome local art shop in Normal that I’m obsessed with. I’ve bought a few things and I’m obsessed with them. Yay for me, giving back to the community!

    Soon I will be free. Soon I will be an adult in the real world with no college to hide behind. Soon I will have to take responsibility for myself and get a job, pay all of my bills, figure out what I want to do with my life, fail, succeed, balance myself, and be happy. Soon. I am free.

    I volunteered at this event for The Baby Fold called Festival of Trees. It was through the club I was in at the time, Circle K. I was in Circle K back in Ohio but the ISU version of the club in Illinois just […]

  • Evelyn commented on the post, odds 7 years, 1 month ago

    Everyone wants to beat the odds. and in general, people use the phrase in the most generic sense. “i’m going to beat the odds and graduate from college”, when in reality so many people graduate college. i don’t know. that phrase bothers me. it’s not about proving people wrong or proving “life” wrong. just work […]

  • Evelyn commented on the post, princess 7 years, 3 months ago

    Princess Kaley, oh how you are a character. You were very unpredictable to me at first, with your seemingly innocence and good girl vibes, but your story got my brain moving. Something didn’t add up to me, but I let you be. And then I saw what you became. Still a princess, but conformity engulfed […]

    I think of that gorgeous blue gown that Cinderella wore. I thought all of the dresses that all of the disney characters worse to the ball were gorgeous. My most favorite of all, the gowns that Drew Barrymore wore in Ever After. I want my wedding dress to be inspired by those gowns.

  • Evelyn commented on the post, beckon 7 years, 3 months ago

    Beckon sounds like a very poetic term. It simply means a gesture, to get the attention of someone and urge them to come near. I guess it could be poetic when someone writes about love. Sometimes you need to beckon someone to your heart, or be beckoned to someone else’s.

  • Evelyn commented on the post, platinum 7 years, 3 months ago

    I used to be obsessed with No Doubt’s album “Rock Steady” and one of the songs was “Platinum Blonde Life”. It was one of the more rock-ish songs on the album. I miss the older pop music. I feel like it was actually good, that it was actually pop as in popular. Now, pop is […]

  • Evelyn commented on the post, return 7 years, 3 months ago

    Return to me. A song by Needtobreathe. I love it. I love them. Not relating to the song, I wish I could return to who I am. I don’t feel like me anymore. I feel lonely, I’m not outgoing, I care about what everyone thinks, I don’t let loose. If I could return to Baldwin-Wallace, […]

  • Evelyn commented on the post, deserve 7 years, 3 months ago

    Everyone talks about how they are so deserving of something, as if they deserve it more than other people. It kind of pisses me off. It sounds conceited. However, not one person should be denied the right to happiness. Regardless of how your life plays out, we all deserve happiness.

  • Evelyn commented on the post, stable 7 years, 3 months ago

    I’m watching The Soloist. I can’t believe I’ve never seen this before. It’s kind of interesting to think that with such an unstable mind, music is the one thing that makes him feel stable.

  • Evelyn commented on the post, slouch 7 years, 3 months ago

    My mom always yells at me for slouching. She says it makes me look fatter. She’s always on my ass about standing up tall. I found that if I stand up tall and put my shoulders back, my boobs stick out really far…and I have HUGE boobs…so I’ll try to stand up straight, but there […]

  • Evelyn commented on the post, anywhere 7 years, 3 months ago

    Anywhere but here. Anywhere but home. I’d like to be anywhere, where I am understood, where I have passion, where I feel free. I want to be anywhere that I can be motivated, anywhere that I can find something or someone to dedicate my life to. Anywhere but here.

  • Evelyn commented on the post, skyline 7 years, 3 months ago

    My adrenaline always begins to pump when I drive into Chicago on 90 and I can see the city skyline. I love driving on that twisty, curvy road. I feel alive driving with the traffic, living in the fast lane. Seeing all the different kind of cars, all the different types of people. I crave […]

  • Evelyn commented on the post, dim 7 years, 3 months ago

    Coming on this site today, I feel like everyone is going to write about lights or emotions dimming. As I was about to write, I tried thinking of something insanely profound and artistic, but then I realized I was trying too hard.
