He smiles as she dances.
As she moves to the beat of the music.
He looks at her with a sparkle in his eye.
As though he had seen her for the very first time.
She sways, her long brown hair fallen across her back
And eyes closed.
As he watches her he thanks God for his perfect angel.
He wants this moment to last forever.
As sudden as a flash of lightening -
She stops and looks over at him.
A smile comes across her face
As she walks over and extends her hand.
For this short poem, I really wanted to capture the beauty and passion of true love. How little things, like dancing, can be the most magical moments in a relationship.What do you guys think?

I graduated this week, so today I thought I would talk a bit about my experience. I guess I never thought High School would be the way it was. I always thought that I'd have the perfect friends, go to the most fun school, have the perfect boyfriend, and simply have a good time. That's what I'd always dreamed of, at least. But, as it came to an end, I realized that I didn't exactly enjoy my time whatsoever. High school was NOT for me. In fact, they were probably the worst years of my life. Depressing? Yep. But I really want to be real with you guys. The point of this post is not to talk about what bad things happened during this time..but rather to tell you what I've learned. Hopefully my mistakes and what I've seen in High School will help some of you out, or at least encourage you to be the best you, you can be.
Firstly, the word "Friend" is a big word, so don't use it like I once did, very freely. A friend is someone who loves you for you. Who helps you when you need it. Who is loyal.
Secondly, following trends is one of the biggest traps that people fall into, and one of the biggest mistakes. You only live once (Please don't think I agree with the whole "Yolo" thing, because I really don't haha), and I truly believe Kurt Cobains words when he said that being someone else is a waste of the person you are.
Thirdly, don't just fall for any guy my lovely lady viewers. I fell into this trap once or twice, and I saw so many girls fall for any guy, and let me tell you, it got them in trouble. Falling in love with a man is so much different than simply being attracted to them. Get to know them before you commit!
Fourthly, speak out about your problems. I had and still have a tendency to simply write instead of talk to people and get help on them. It was one of the biggest mistakes in the world. I went through so much pain, with loved ones dying, and yet I fell silent. My smile was only on the outside, on the inside my world was falling apart.
Those are probably the top 4 things I would say were a big deal for me or the other people in my life in High School. Although in a way, they were good things. They made me realize what I didn't want to be like someday. They made me stronger.
What did you guys learn during your years in High School?

I guess I just wanted to touch on the topic of being unique today, since it's something I think a lot about. It all started in early Jr. High, when I was friends with a group of girls that constantly were putting me down and taking their drama filled lives out on me every single day. (Thankfully I've now learned what a true friend really is.) During that time, I felt that I needed to dress and talk a certain way to please them. I now look back on it and realize wow, how could I have been so stupid?
One of my favorite quotes by the amazing Kurt Cobain says it all. "I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not."
I'm always telling my beautiful freaks (From my fashion blog) to be who they are in their style. Your style should reflect that. You only live ONCE. So what's the point of being someone else and following trends your whole life? It's a hard journey to actually being yourself wholeheartedly, and you will get hated on by more people then you ever imagined, but for me, it's totally worth it. Sure, I deal with people who judge and criticize me all the time for what I wear, what I listen to, who I am. And sure, sometimes it stings a bit. But I don't want to look back on life and regret being someone I'm not. Even if it's the little things like my fashion or what like.
So to those who wonder why I have a love for weird & unique people like Johnny Depp, now you know. I love them because they are the brave souls of our world. They are the people who have taken a leap of faith, even if it might have been scary at first. They are the ones I look up to most of all.
So friends, what do you think? I would love to hear your opinions on this topic.
