Welcome to My Resurgence


Why am I blogging publicly, rather than keeping everything in my journals? By putting these written experiences online, my diaries have purpose. I’m breathing new life into my experiences.

  • Diary5Part3: DancingQueen
    “March 27, 2008: The past week has been mid-terms. In dance, we’re supposed to run rally choreography, but the freshmen aren’t getting along so well today. Mom sent Ms. Rogers an email. It’s ok. The experience only made me stronger. “ I downplayed my experiences with the other freshman. They were very disrespectful and madeContinue reading “Diary5Part3: DancingQueen”
