Macros, also known as macronutrients consist of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Based on how many calories you consume and burn throughout the day, your macronutrient percentages may differ from someone else’s goals.

For someone like me that wants to build lean muscles, I consume a lot of protein. Typically, I eat somewhere between 1700–2000 calories a day. My protein macronutrients are 35% of my total goal, which is around 150–170 grams of protein per day. …

Apparently crazy seems to be my strong suit

I felt like a fraud because my feelings kept being invalidated.

There’s been many times in my life where I feel like I have not been listened to and boy, did it bother me a lot.

I felt like I was wasting my time crying and being upset about my feelings because I felt like things I told my loved ones were going in one ear and out the other. I felt like I was burdening someone with the things that were on my mind, even though I was encouraged to “open up” to them.

For you to listen to me
To hear me cry
But silence comes to stay instead

My heart bleeds
For you to hold me tight

Warmth, what does that feel like?

Is that a synonym for reciprocated love?

Goosebumps trail my body
When I think you’re going to reach for me

My fear crawling against my skin
Or were those spiders
Asking to dance with me in the dark?
Chills run up and down my spine
Home was no where in sight

The moon remained silent
I hear a voice in the distance
Yet, warmth tickles the back…

Worst case scenario? This is it.

Since elementary school, my teachers have reiterated over and over again about the repercussions of plagiarizing someone else’s work and claiming it as their own. According to my them, if you plagiarize in college you can be expelled and worst, blacklisted from other post-secondary institutions because of it.

The idea of the consequences terrified me. I never wanted to face a situation where I had to admit in front of a bunch of educated professionals that I cheated on my test or paper. …
