First Post!

I have yet to even finish the actual set-up of this blog, so for my first post I will treat you all to a little poem I wrote in my Business & Economics class.  It is about a party I recently went to.  I’m not sure If I get to fill out a bio here at some point, but here’s me in a nutshell- Twenty years old, college student in Ventura County, and I flip burgers and live with my parents.  More on that will come out later, I’m sure.  The poem is untitled so feel free to leave suggestions in the comments!!  


I guess I should have seen this coming,

I know I should have started running,

Saw the smoke,

I felt the fire,

Burning my throat but the drinks kept coming,

Inebriated, I won’t say sorry,


Marks up and down my body,

Cunning, stunning,

Barker drumming from the speakers,

And every hit,

From his kick,

Reminds that I don’t wanna be here,


My mind,

Hands like, “but we just wanna see her,”


My mom,

Tellin’ me, “Remember how you treat her,”



Leaves me in the dark,

With half a pack of matches,

And a note that this is art,

So I’ve been here, doing this,

My fingertips are charred,

So scared to light another match for fear of leading them too far.
