Necto nightclub

I was startled by the flashing lights

that bounced to the beat on that cold night

their flickering, fidgeting rays

emitting the rainbow pass the thoughts in my psyche.


The dance floor mirrored the lights

lingering bodies filling the floor with

passionate hips, swaying on and off the beat

grinding bodies moving pass my lips.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Even though the holiday created in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. is only technically one day, many people spend the whole latter half of January honoring his amazing legacy. Aside from the countless Instagram selfies posted with an MLK quote as the caption, many places hold a slew of events to commend the effect of his work on the world. The University of Michigan undeniably takes part in this practice.

I’ve loved to read for as long as I can remember. Words paint pictures, paint moments, paint stories for me. And man, do I love a good story. The more fantastic, the better. Don’t get me wrong, the real world is great (occasionally), but the worlds of fantasy are even better. Anything is possible. Anything is supposed to be possible.

I planned my dream wedding when I was 6 years old. I had met my soulmate in my kindergarten class, and I was positive that our love was going to last forever. Because of my deep passion for organizing, my only clear option was to figure out every nitty-gritty detail of when and where we would tie the knot.

Summer or Winter? Summer. The wedding will be outside, so it must be gorgeous out.

Big or small? Big, with everyone I know in attendance.

Last year, a friend of mine, who had been searching for a girlfriend for a decade, finally found someone. When I heard the wonderful news, I texted him, “I’m happy for you.” His reply was odd but familiar. He wrote, “aww thanks, it’ll happen for you one day, don’t worry.” I was slightly irritated. I had never expressed that I was searching for a relationship, and his assumption that being single was not my choice bothered me.

What is self love?

It’s not just spa dates and candle lit baths.

It’s not just mani-pedis and facemasks.

It’s not just what the media claims it to be,

But it can be all of that too.


In fact, it’s whatever you want and need it to be.

It’s sleeping in until noon, having breakfast for dinner,
