So it goes

There are times in my life where I’m really unsure of my self. Those are the times I tend to take the biggest jumps. Where I’m completely terrified and totally lost and have no option of choosing to chicken out. I’m always scared of my fears actually terrified . I don’t know why I go…

Dear 16 year old me

Wow it’s been a while and a lot has changed. You have long hair now & few tattoos. Oh Karina the things you wanted in highschool are nothing compared to what you got later on after. You went beyond what you thought you couldn’t do. You accomplished things you never thought of and the things…

L.A to the Bay

Dear San Francisco,  When I think about the places that make me happy and feel like home your the second half to my first thought. I never thought I could be so in love with a city. Practically for my entire life you are a consist place I always go back to. Every time I…

You are

Lately there has been so many harsh and cruel things going on around the world. Things that we don’t need to have. Some of those things have affected us mentally and personally. Regardless of what’s being done and said that’s negatively. There are just a few choice of words you might need to hear to…

They knew

She knew. Nothing was said but you could feel it. The way they were towards each other. The emotions weren’t the ones she would normally feel. She thought she was strong enough to finally let him go and go on with her life. Truth is she hurt so badly she kept in the tears felt…

The best compliment

Over the years I’ve managed to learn a talent I was ALWAYS terrible at.  LEARNING HOW TO TAKE A COMPLIMENT. If you know me there’s one thing I was horrible at that was it. You would thinks with the amount of compliments I gave out I would be a pro at taking them well HAHA…

Every little thing

Today is monday. Honestly I’m so dead even with the amount of coffee I’ve already intaked. How are you? Is been a while. I’m sitting here wondering why I haven’t managed to post something up like I usually do. Trying to not get sidetracked all over again. I’ve been so wrapped up trying to get…

Cb…..Be here

It’s hard to shake you out of my life, not because I always think about you, it’s because I rarely do. It’s all a memory, I remember it too well still so raw and sweet after all these days. Remember the moments we had just looking at each other and could have an entire conversation…

It’s okay.

There are things in our life that we’ll never have control of. If I made a list will that will never end. So here I am late at night (when I have to wake up in 4 hrs haha oops) writing about something that terrifies me. One of the things I learned in my 21…

A little more than that

When the word beauty comes to mind what do you think ? Is it physically, mentally, or verbally. For me it’s a little deeper than that. Beauty for me is the soul. Ever since I could remember the soul Is what captures everything about you. Its what makes you, you. The soul can be Such…

Redefining a new year

Lately what I’ve been seeing is around talking about a new start. New year new me I hear it EVERYWHERE. Don’t get me wrong I’m not here to judge upon that But for me that doesn’t exist, it never has.  I grew up in a household where if you wanted a new start it doesn’t…

Beauty of Literature

I can remember it like it was yesterday. The day I realized what made me feel alive. I could say it was music first but I’d be lying. I can remember not wanting to put my pencil down. Sitting on a chair for hours writing well I’m not quite sure what it exactly it was…
