• You do[have creativity]. It is only temporarily diverted because it is looking at LOLcats. Or you know, whatever creativity likes to look at. ;)
  • I wish to you all the strength and energy to pull through, but i already admire you in so many ways, you are such a bright light. You and your family are in my thoughts
  • Taylor, I am sorry for your loss. I appreciate your imagery and your tone in this short passage. You are an excellent writer. Hope you are well.
  • I have gone through a lot of the same things. Just stay strong with who you are. You are a wonderful young woman.
  • Why? Because you’re the type of person who deserves to get everything you want out of life. So you have to fight for it.
  • you are an amazing photographer
  • Sounds like you are being honest with yourself about what you want to do. Nothing wrong with feeling like you don’t want to write something till you feel like you are ready.
  • i know you think you don’t write anything worth saying, but even the simplest words you just put together speak to me at certain moments when i’m on here, sad or upset…and it’s like…wow <3 someone relates. someone gets it. it’s a nice feeling :)
  • I run into that a lot. Just continue to write your words and eventually you discover a voice all you own and no matter if they are words used before they have a rhythm and a way that only belongs to you.
  • Well, even if you don't consider it "writing," this sounded really nice the way you've phrased it. Just sayin' :)
    • 'and somehow I manage to make schedules in my head

and cut time into little squares but none of this matters! Time doesn’t really exist, it’s all just the same. It’s a shame shame shame that most don’t understand this. I’m so tired of society.'

  • I know how this feels but hold on to the moments you have even if brief to write and just try to get to that point where you can live free and write and let this beautiful world inspire your words.
  • This is very beautiful. And sad. But I don’t mean that in a pitying way.
  • That was seriously beautiful. I'm assuming you're the one who wrote it, and if in fact that is correct, you should know that you are a truly wonderful writer. The flow of that piece was amazing. Too little in high school I was exposed to peer edits that had a decent flow about them. This actually really makes me want to read both of the books mentioned. Perhaps I will now :)
  • I hope you know that you're very pretty and that your posts are pretty grand. :) Have a great night/day
  • Hey taylor,just wanted to leave a note saying how sometimes i think it's uncanny how similar your posts are also of truth to me.. feeling everything deeply, the stress and fear.. All I can hope, is that we can hope that within a year we will be in much better places, and all of our work will have paid off. My thoughts are with you <3
  • But I just wanted to let you know that you aren't alone, and that your "word vomit", albeit long, was hardly tiresome for me to read. It was real, it was raw, it let me know as a follower of yours that you are as real as can be. And I thank you for that, and I wish you luck with your words. I know you must miss them as much as I miss mine.
  • "Taylor, I am so happy that you will be continuing your study of literature. You are talented and creative. I know how hard it can be to focus with the stress you have described. But I also know that you should feel confident in your own abilities, and please know that you never have to face life challenges alone. Best of luck to you, and I hope you stay in touch!"

  • "Taylor you are an amazing individual to have deal with what you had to go through i am nothing but awe at your inner strength you carry the burben of many and yet still you press on i wish i was more like you"
  • Taylor you are an amazing girl...I dreamt that everyone in the world died and when I woke up I was scared that I had lost you...I realized how important you are, how significant you are to my life.
  • Hey girl, I just want to let you know that I'm thinking of you. I can tell you're going through a rough time, and i want you to know that I'm here for you. I hope the sun will come to your horizon soon (you'll have to pardon the terrible metaphor). Try to keep your chin up, you're beautiful and talented and smart and creative and lovely and not only should the world be able to see that, but you should too. <3 <3 <3
