February 20, 2017

How can something used for protection be troubling for some people? It’s not even supposed to physically torture you. Its presence is not supposed to make you cry or fall into a depression. I can’t imagine how trauma occurs from a simple object. A jacket. A simple jacket or a coat. It is impermeable...

Back in the day, Nickelodean was popular for its green slime. All of us from home would imagine ourselves getting slimed. Celebrities would get slimed from the Kid’s Choice Awards to Figure It Out. That slime was used for fun and other times, for punishment. Childish isn’t it? What if that slime...

I was born by myself on December 15, 1995. My cousin was born five days after me. Her mom was a teenager while my mom waited a very long time to have me. We knew what it was like for each of us to be an only child. Growing up, my cousin and I would bond together to the point that we call each other...

Black vest jacket with gray fur inside, dark gray sweater with straight perfect pockets and no hood, no jewelry, regular jeans with flowers on the side of each leg, pink kiddie belt that is almost too small for my waist, pink and gray Champions, gold eye shadow. That is exactly what I’m wearing...

There are surprising things about my identity that you should know. I hate being called or referred as Sarai A. Charon. I also hate being called or referred to as Indian as in the country in Asia. I have no middle name and I am Indian as in Native American.  I was born in Yonkers, New York to Puert...
