Red hair from Scottish ancestry Red plaid, button up shirts Vaguely she knows me, but She can’t remember me Lost between worlds Wandering among tangled strings— Tangent thoughts She can’t find that one red wire The one that tells her who… Continue reading Red Boy
"So, Elizabeth, now that you're back. How was your semester? We're all curious since you quit communicating with us." Yeah, I am so sorry about that. I'm back now.

Be proud of me. I'm making progress. I got a new book called the princess saves herself in this one by Amanda Lovelace. (There are no capitals in the title or in the book.) It is a book of poetry, and I'm in love with it. I know I'm reading like a million other books too,… Continue reading Finally. I’m doing stuff.
I AM DONE SELLING FIREWORKS. First off, let's celebrate that statement. While I really didn't want to work there, God taught me a lot. He came through and proved just how faithful He really is if I only trust Him. There were so many things that happened that could not be denied as God. To… Continue reading Just. Freaking. Everything.
