Haiku – The Salad Analogy

I am a salad

Tossed with the flavors of life

Fresh and colorful


And yes, I chose to display a Greek salad because, you guessed it, Greek Pride. What kind of salad would you say best represents yourself?

Scraps – Mothers Recipe

It was my first time cooking pasta with meat sauce. The only reason it’s meaningful to me, I used my mother’s recipe. A Greek mother’s specialty, “Macaronia Meh Kima.” The sauce might not have tasted just like hers, but I think I did a pretty damn good job for a first attempt. You go, me.

Revel.

Do you ever feel like you’re bigger than your own body?

The feeling that you can do so much more than you’re pinning for. You’ve been told that it’s impossible, that you’re impossible. It just won’t happen. Go to college, get a stable degree. Do something you won’t regret.

But I may just be regretting it.

I’m overflowing with passion and excitement. I want to revel. I’m trapped in a body that won’t let me. This isn’t me. What if I never find myself?

I want to be someone who people know, someone I can make myself proud of. I know I can do it. Just think of the smile on my fourth grade self, the girl who was getting into trouble like it was beer at a toga party. The girl who always tried to play on the safe side. The one who stayed on track, the one whose still a little terrified to turn off the tracks. Just imagine her face when she finds out she made it big. Or will… one day.

Today I’ve decided that I’m going to make something out of myself. But I tell myself that everyday, so what’s different about today?

Today I had a vision of myself on stage.

And I melted for it.

The Naked Whip Cream Battle

The music was pounding as I stood laughing at the top of my lungs. We were twirling around the house in nothing but a bra and sweatpants. I’m not sure where the whip cream came from, but I was drowning in it.

It’s hot and I’m sweating, the whip cream is sticky. My hair is white and my arms are frosty. I’m lying on the floor face up and the music is still playing. I’m staring at the ceiling with a smile.

I love my friends.
