"I know girls who spill I’m sorry’s from their mouths like they pump blood
to their veins.
Sometimes, I am one.
I know girls who apologize for asking
to go to the bathroom in class,
who apologize for everything
because they feel like they are taking
up more than their fair share of space
on this planet.
Everything starts with an I’m sorry
and ends with one too,
constant bookends that we don’t
even notice anymore.
We delete her apology the way we
delete likes and ums from speech.
I know girls with ten times more apologies
than misdemeanors
and I wonder how often they hear
It’s okay.
You’re more than okay."

One time in class, I got fed up

This was one of my favorite teachers ever, he didn't believe in homework and was just the coolest dude ever

Teacher: I won't be here tomorrow so I left worksheets for the teacher to give you.

Kid: why can't we watch a movie?

Teacher: because the school board doesn't like us to show you movies that don't have anything to do with the curriculum. They say that movies are for home and we need to keep your home life separate from your school life.

Me: then why do they give us homework?

Whole class: .....

Teacher: .....

President: .....

Miley Cyrus: ....

Me: ....

Teacher: Samantha, please. Whatever you do. Bring this up with the principal because that's the best argument I have ever heard.

"i don’t need you
to fight my battles,
i just need
for you to be there
when my hands
begin to tremble
and my voice breaks,
to help me
steady my sword
and teach me
how to roar."

"When you meet someone who tries their hardest to stick by you regardless of how difficult you are, keep them. Keep them at all costs because finding someone who cares enough to look past your flaws isn’t something that happens every day."
