Never forget your first.
I still remember the first time. The warmth of your body on mine. How your muscles flexed when you held on tighter. How your beard tickled my cheek and your cologne lingered after you let go. I remember how your lips were slightly turned up in a smile, and your eyes half closed making you look sleepy…dreamy. We only embraced once, but it was enough to make me wonder when next time will be.
Late nights on the yoga mat
I keep thinking I’m letting time pass me by. I’m wasting my “good” years. I’m taking things too easy and I’ll regret this when I’m older. But I’m 19, I’ll be 20 in October. I suppose it’s possible that I’m rushing things. Maybe I’m trying to grow up too fast. I just don’t want to be 25 and naive because I never...

This little boy about 3 years old sat next to me on the train. His father gave him a banana. Through the reflection of the window I realized the little boy was having a hard time peeling the banana. I looked at his dad, he obviously noticed but didn’t offer his help, so neither did I. The kid kept struggling and struggling but eventually found a way to peel the banana without ripping off the...

The Three Am Rants: The Archipelago of Kisses →
thethreeamrants: We live in a modern society. Husbands and wives don’t grow on trees, like in the old days. So where does one find love? When you’re sixteen it’s easy, like being unleashed with a credit card in a department store of kisses. There’s the first kiss. The sloppy kiss. The peck. The sympathy kiss….
Mi pequeña Rocio...
I think about the future a lot, and I can get pretty cheesy and overemotional. This is one of those times. Bear with me… I absolutely adore children! I think that if there is one thing that will make my life feel complete it’s motherhood. Obviously this won’t be happening anytime soon, but the thought of having my own children and having more nieces and nephews will make me just...
Today was a day full of mixed emotions. I was frustrated and defensive in the morning, then peaceful and inspired in the afternoon. I ended the night with joy and a sense of satisfaction. Fortunately I’ve come away with one good lesson from all these emotions. Practice. I need to practice, that’s what I’ve been missing this whole time. Without it I won’t ever move up, I...
So tonight I was at the ultimate Dominican baby shower. It reminded of the one thing I truly love about D.R….the happiness/carelessness that seems to embody everyone despite their age. Women who were over 45 were dancing with so much energy and style. And although you knew that’s not how you dance salsa, you couldn’t help but smile because they were having such a good time just...

A good pen is a beautiful thing.
So I’m a bit unstable. I blow up or break down without warning. I’ve been so concerned with being in control that I don’t realize what I’m suppressing. I need an outlet… I haven’t written in my journal in a really long time. I haven’t read a book, or tried some creative writing in a while either. I’m beginning to get restless, so I’m...

killingcharlemagne: The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of quote ‘hopelessness’ or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square.
