I know that this time in your life seems shaky and perhaps unstable at times. Welcome to your mid 20’s. I also know that there is this constant unwavering reminder to feel like you must have your life “together” (whatever that even means). I don’t care weather you admit it or not- almost EVERYONE that graduates uni has this small period where they feel they need to “establish themselves” and let the world know what they’ve done with that VERY expensive degree. Well let me tell you, it is completely normal to compare yourself with people you’ve graduated university with and to feel the need to measure up to them. That is okay, but also realize your journey is definitely not the same as everyone elses so don’t be so hard on yourself if you’re not exactly where you want to be. I have...

You need to chill. Seriously. Chill. You are the most aggressive person in our neighborhood and everyone knows it. If we can hear you when you’re yelling at your son and husband, and you live two houses apart from us, imagine how loud you get when you’re right below our balcony screaming at my dog! First off I would like to apologize that my dog barks. He’s a dog, and if you’ve never met a dog, that’s what they tend to do when someone mean and aggressive starts yelling at them. And it would make sense that when your dog is being yelled at, the owner would come out of their house completely confused and defensive. My mom just wanted to know what was going on, you could’ve told her that our dog barking was annoying you in a nice way. It’s not like he barks all day and night (we only let...

I have never written an open letter before but am amazed by its ability to get voices heard, that being said I hope I am heard. This letter is for the amazing mystery man who, while walking his dog, noticed smoke coming from my twin brother's house and without hesitation took action towards getting my sister-in-law, three-year-old niece and their 3 dogs out safely. My twin is a dedicated army man who was deployed when the fire took place (he is now thankfully in route to be with his family). What many people fail to realize is that the army wives have to find the energy to act as both mom and dad during deployment. With this being an extremely exhausting feat, along with raising a toddler, it would be tough to wake anyone from the state of a much needed deep sleep. As if being...

Dear Nikki Haley, The America First narrative that is emphasized under the current administration is disastrous for the state of the world. As a leading world power, America has a responsibility to take action to aid countries that may need assistance. The problem of arsenic poisoning may not be a pressing issue in the United States at this immediate moment, but it is prevalent in other poorer nations who cannot afford the same methods to keep their countries safe. America’s power and influence leads to an obligation to take action in order to combat issues affecting undeveloped nations, such as arsenic poisoning. Arsenic is found in rice. Of course, it also is found in places that one might think of more typically, such as rat poisons and wood finishing substances, but where is is...

If you're reading this, that means you've successfully (or unfortunately, depending on how you view it) made your way to my letters. Maybe you're the person who sits across from me in study hall. Maybe you're a stranger living halfway across the world. For those two and everyone in between, please understand that this is quite possibly the most vulnerable I've ever intentionally been. Writing is scary. I often feel that writing (or any kind of art, for that matter), is not given enough credit for how petrifying it truly can be. Running a mile can be scary, sure. Chemistry can be scary, too. Opening yourself up in any form of art for the world to see is scarier. I joined this website to have a place to put my potentially controversial and fundamental opinions. Sometimes, I believe, things...

Woah, here I am writing this letter to you, an "Open Letter" if you will. You know I am not good with words or expressing certain feelings so here's to hoping that this helps not only you and I, but others as well. As you can imagine, this took weeks to accomplish (you know how my mind races) and I can hear you saying, "I am so proud of you" your voice always did get me through the toughest battles I have in my head. Like so many others before us and after us, we have our moments, moments of anger and irritability. Man, you really can drive m up a wall. I'm sure you feel the same about me at times. And then, Husband, there are the other times. You know the times when you hold me because I am hyperventilating. Those times when you tell me "It's going to be okay" when I swear it wont be...

Dear Mr. Connelly, I write this letter in hopes it meets your eyes one day, or doesn't perhaps. I also hope it finds you in great spirits and all is well in your life. This is my open letter to you. You see, for some unknown and selfish reason you felt I was very undeserving of my closure. Closure on the brief moments you and I were romantically involved with each other. I want you to understand I don't write this open letter to you to gain public pity nor do I do it for you to be humiliated. It's also not for others to see how you severely victimized me, even though you did. You should know of the multiple ways your presence in my life made one of the biggest impacts I've ever come to know. This is me - as me. Nothing more, nothing less. So if you find yourself mentally, psychically...

Open letter to humans with humanity! This is to all my friends, all the people in the world I know and those I don't, this is to each and every single human being for the sake of humanity! Let me start point blank clear that I am asking for any sympathy whatsoever or need you to pity me on whatever I say. Rather, kindly understand and have patience to read the letter and later think on it! Yes I am an autoimmune patient suffering constantly 24*7 autoimmune disorders which a fatal and life threatening. Yes it is a fact that no one can help me with fighting through the battle against fate. You might not be able to as a friend do anything more than just sit by my side and listen to whatever I want to say, just be there until I need, when I don't have the strength to do it anymore myself...

I want to be clear about the reason that I am writing this little letter. This is not the opinion of one of the Bertha's or Gertrude's or other blasphemous wrongdoers you have mentioned in your blog. I'm writing this letter for two reasons. First, I think an example of decent writing is something you need in your life and second, I need to break something down for you. I'm going to paint you a picture here, so use your imagination and put yourself into my shoes: I wake up in the morning ready to get my day off to a great start. I grab my Cinnamon Toast Crunch, grab a milk carton out of the fridge, and pour away. That's when I realize...the milk is bad. Morning ruined, total catastrophe, I'm sure you can relate. Ironically, this exact feeling of dissatisfaction and disgust is how I feel...

The story was about a boy who got stranded in the middle of the ocean. The story tells about the adventure he goes through. How he manages to survive in a boat with some wild animals. As the story goes on slowly the animals attack each other. A Tiger was the last of them and survived being stranded. Pi later is being asked questions about his experience of being stranded. The reporters did not believe some aspect of his story because it was unrealistic. Pi then later confesses that there weren’t any animals. That he survived being stranded with Cannibal who killed the others including his mother. We attend to find comfort by not excepting reality. Some of us like to just believe in higher power because it can show us there is hope. The issue I came across is not wanting to face...
