The Walls We Build & Watching Them Crumble

I recently watched "Falling Inn Love" on Netflix. Super cute, super cheesey , my favorite. Way back when, people would hide love letters or meaningful items into the walls of their home for good luck in a practice called immurement.

Unconventional God

My guilty pleasure is pop punk from the early 2000s. Even though I am no longer mad at my father, wear less eyeliner, and blare Kidz Bop 99% of the time, I still find myself bored with conformity.

Being quiet has never been my strong suit. What happens once you discover who you are and you are ready to move on to what you know you were born to do? What do you do when you’re not quite ready?
