Write Just as an Apple

Whenever I get a headache, I eat an apple. The apple usually cures my headache, at least for a while.

Sometimes when I feel confused, I write. Writing usually takes care of my confusion. Or, if it doesn’t, it relaxes me and saves someone from having to listen to my complaints.

That is why I will always write. I may get sick of it sometimes. I may fall behind and not stick to my original plan. I may think I am past writing, that I won’t ever go back.

But I eventually keep coming back. Writing isn’t just a hobby for me, it is a lifeline. I don’t just write poems or stories or blogs, I write my thoughts. I write to communicate. My blog just might tell someone more about me than they could know from just talking to me.

Because, you see, I write to say what I can’t speak.



What I do…When I’m Supposed to Be Doing Something Else.

Right now I should be…





working out


something more productive

But who actually does the things they are supposed to do? Oh wait, I usually do.

I just procrastinate first.

You see, it is always much more enjoyable to be reading a stupendous book, or having a texting conversation, or writing a blog when you should be doing something else.

Guilty pleasures is what average things become when you are supposed to be doing something else.

Fascinating, right?

Probably more fascinating to me than to you because I really should be studying my American Politics book so that I can keep up in the class competition (more on this later). Unless you have something you should be doing, too? If so, I’ve just created a guilty pleasure…or post?

Oksana in College

Today I got a care package. It was from one of my Mom’s friends who is, incidentally, awesome! It contained various items such as candy, gum, more candy, faith folders (1 Corinthians 1:9!), a whistle, an Idaho pen (of which I originally thought was bubbles), and an Alice in Wonderland book.

Now, I realize that it is a motley assortment of items. Fortunately, I love them! The only two things that confused me were the whistle and the book. Upon assessing the package, I figured out that the whistle is a Halloween prop. I could be a referee for Halloween! My Dad has this referee jacket from his days of refereeing hockey back in 19…well, during his high school years. Anyhow, now I have a Halloween costume and have figured out the mystery of the whistle.

The Alice in Wonderland book was a bit harder to figure out. I knew that putting it out on display in my dorm was a must and decided that the desk was the place it would be most looked at. It is very cute! Then, I wondered if I could glean a deep moral meaning from the book that would not only help me ace all of my college classes and find myself but also teach me the meaning of life. So I read the book to extract said information.

I liked the pictures.

I didn’t find any deep moral meanings. I even decided that I was thinking waaay too hard. Maybe the secret meaning would come later? I decided that if the book was representative of my life right now, it would be called “Oksana in College’. Cool, huh?

Just now, as I write this blog, I’ve realized that although college isn’t an actual sleeping dream, it has been something I’ve dreamt of for a long time now and a wonderful experience so far.

I’ve certainly met many strange people and seen some crazy things.

Thus, I am now going to write a book about my college experiences, which will turn into a movie, and then become a New York Times Bestseller and…okay, maybe I’ll just stick with the blog.

The Tidbits Begin

I did not start this blog with a notion that I am the smartest or most experienced person in the world. Quite the contrary, as my G.P.A. and my Mother like to remind me, I am not the smartest person for my age nor do I have close to as many experiences as parents do. I am writing this blog because I know that most people can relate to not being the best or knowing the most. I want to provide a place where people can escape their own realities into someone else’s and maybe even come away with some new information or a grin.

I am writing this blog because sometimes it is nice to know that other people have similar tidbits to share. My tidbit topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Faith/Christianity
  • Writing
  • Working/Jobs
  • Friendship
  • Reading
  • College
  • Exercise
  • Family
  • Sports (tennis, hockey, and disc golfing are my favorites)
  • Posters
  • Texting
  • Clothes (I own quite a few)

If any of the topics listed above interest you, if you want to learn something new, or if you want to experience something different, I would humbly you suggest you read my blog. This blog is for the people and the people only. I am writing this for me. I am writing this for you.
