What the heart wants. 

There’s no right path,

Nor a rule book that dictates,

What the heart can and cannot desire.

There’s never a right person,

Nor the right time,

Two hearts simply come together when they do.

There’s no right kind of love,

To each his own,

Some last and some don’t.

And the ones that never make it,

And their memories that lie buried deep within,

Are ironically more cherished.

Music

Tip tappin of the toes

Swaying heads with satisfied smiles

And all the hearts are full,

From the memories that come rushing.

All that we’re looking for,

Is a voice in the dark.

A whole fire lights up,

From that little spark.

When the words you hear,

Hit so close to home,

And you’re walking on common ground,

Its not so lonely any more.

Complete 

Have you ever felt so complete?

A heart so full that it could explode,

Into little pieces of nerve wrecking joy.

Sometimes it’s a good thing

To feel the weight of the world on your shoulders,

If it is your little girl asking for rides on your back.

Sadness can be a happy emotion

When it is felt for the loss of a loved one

You are lucky to have loved and lost.

Shot up nerves is the rawest of passion

When you’re on that first date,

And you can’t get over his smile.

BEING A DOG OWNER – 101

Finding that perfect little ball of fluff to take home must feel like the greatest joy in the world. And it is! 🙂 But, there are a few things I’d like to bring to your attention before you drown in a river of excitement.

  1. If you look at that teeny-tiny-drooling-marshmallow in your arms, it might seem like he’s as cute as a teensy button. But it isn’t for long. You cannot possibly imagine how something so small can eat SO MUCH, and more importantly POOP SO FRIGGIN’ MUCH! So get a shovel and be prepared. They go from marshmallow to giant beast in months!
  2. Do you fantasise about those dreamy walks you long to take with your pupper? Well, they’re all gonna come true. Except you’ll be doing it about a million times a day ‘cuz he is always gonna need a wee.
  3. How soft is his shiny mane? Don’t you just wanna cuddle up against that cozy fur? Well, you can do a lot of that ‘cuz it’s going to fill up your house. You don’t even want to know how much worse it can get in shedding season.
  4. The kisses you love now will soon turn you into a slobbery pile of mush. YUP. Imagine getting slobber over your prom dress. Ain’t so pretty, is it?
  5. The jumping up and down to welcome you home soon turns from cute to traumatic when he shoves you to the ground with one little hug. 😀 They’re almost ALWAYS excited.
  6. If you’re eating and he’s not, you’re going to have to make it through a lot of begging. A LOT.
  7. If you’re overwhelmed already, what will you do when you get to bath time? Shampoo everywhere. Wet dog hair everywhere. Your house is now your pupper’s pool partaaay! He will give you a bath before you’re done with his.

So yeah, getting a dog = a lot of work. But there’s something else you should know. He will be the best thing that ever happened to you. He will make your make your life so amazing that the amount of work won’t seem like much. Because you just found yourself a best friend. 🙂

Here’s a picture of my adorable, little munchkin.

He’s not very little anymore, but he is still just as adorable. 🙂

Parting of the Ways

The worst kind of fall,

Is when you give your all.

It shatters your bones

And muffles your moans.

In a lover’s way

Comes unexpected barriers.

For the heart that swears to stay,

If often the one that wavers.

As if promises of forever

Are only made to be broken.

There is no hope for love

Unless time stands frozen.

A Guide to Teenage Survival

  1. Make yourself a cave. I’m serious. Build a fortress of solitude to wait out the hormonal phases you will be thrown into. It could be anything! Your room, a small hallway at school, a tree house in a dingy park. Just make sure it has Netflix and a popcorn machine and you’ll be fine!
  2. Develop deaf ears. It helps in dealing with all the haters! It should work in most cases. If not, just feed them to the first bear you can find.
  3. Driving is a very very important skill. When the struggle is real, you can just drive away from all your problems. It’s easier and faster than running away from your problems.
  4. Music is your one true friend. No matter what, a pair of head phones can fix anything. Use it like a shield. Turn up that bass and drown out the noise!
  5. Relationships are complicated! So stay away from any human contact. I told you your cave would be useful, didn’t I?
  6. Make a sign saying, “Go away” for when you run into mind numbingly stupid people. Yeah! You know the ones. It will happen a LOT! Now you won’t have to waste a single breath on them.
  7. When your parents ask you a question and it’s about you doing something you shouldn’t have, just tell the truth. Seriously! Chances are they already know. Parents get real crafty as you grow up!
  8. When you’re given advice, the right thing to do is to nod like a bobble head! If you’re planning actually paying attention and reacting to everything you hear, good luck dude. See you in the afterlife!

I hope that was useful 😀 if not, I hope you had a good laugh at the least! What are your thoughts? Please leave a comment. Thank you for reading!

WordPressing – 101 (Tips for new bloggers and old)

Hello there! 🙂

You may have just started a brand new blog, or you may have been blogging for quite some time. Congratulations on that! 🙂 It’s an amazing feeling, isn’t it? To have a voice. But what good is a voice when what you’re saying isn’t reaching the right audience?

Here are some tips to increase your stats and get the readership you desire.

  1. Keep it short. The longer your post is, the less likely it is to get read. Even an interested reader might get discouraged by the size of a long post.
  2. Tagging your post is really important. You can add tags to your post in the post-settings area. The WordPress reader is the best source of readers and tagging your post under the related topics will help the right kind of readers find you. But no more than 15 tags (including categories) otherwise your post will not appear in the reader.
  3. Reposting is not a crime. Think of the wordpress reader as a stream of posts. Your posts gets a mere 10 minutes in the limelight. Reposting it simply gives you a little longer.
  4. Interact with other bloggers. Every relationship needs some give and take. How can you expect others to read your blog, when you’ve never given them a reason to? Develop a few friendships. Like and follow new blogs. Leave a few comments. Socialising is key to improving your stats.
  5. Reblog at least one post every day. You might make someones day. And its a mutually beneficial practice. It get’s you your views when you don’t have ideas of your own and you’re helping out a fellow blogger by sharing their content.
  6. Quality over quantity. I have seen bloggers who post once a month having over 10k subscribers. So, spend the time you’re not writing, socialising on your blog. And do the occasional repost of your old posts.
  7. Posting at the right time. Check your stats, which day do you get your best views? What time is your best hour? Schedule your posts to be posted at times you get high traffic. Set your post up for success.
  8. Add visual aid. Pictures and videos supporting your content, will give it that extra spice and reel more readers in. But be sure to credit your source for the pictures if you found them online! And also personalise your blog with strategically placed widgets and a nice clean design.
  9. Make your blog everything you are. Don’t niche your blog way too early. Write what you feel like. People relate more to blogs that represent a real human being rather than static sites that post about the same thing all day, every day.
  10. Catchy titles really make a difference. Make your titles reflect the style of your blog. The title of the post is the first thing anyone is going to read. Get that right and you’re halfway there.

I hope these tips were useful. 🙂 Please leave a comment if you have any new tips or if you have any questions. Happy Blogging!

The Break-Up

She decided to bite the bullet and return his things.

T-shirts, Keys and a lot of memories were packed.

Just as she started to walk away from his door where she had dropped off the boxes, her phone chimed.
