Rays of Grace XXXI: Looking Back

I’m one month into senior year. It’s weird how fast time goes. A lot of days, I still feel like a freshman; yet, in less than eight months, I will be walking across the stage to receive my diploma. Recently, I have been thinking about how I’m really going to miss my school years.

Rays of Grace XXIX: Standing Up

It has taken me to the end of my junior year to realize that not everyone has to be my friend. And not everyone will appreciate me.

When this season began, I was in the best shape of my life. Then something didn’t feel right. I …
