Supernatural. Where you fall in love with certain angels, demons, vampires, and humans because they’re all capable of being really freakin’ good people.

This dang show.

I used to hurt
because I’d search
the Earth for traces of you.
There was ne’er a photo,
and barely a memory,
within my desperate view.

But in this new world,
I see you and her
no matter where I turn.
I’m not with your smile—
can’t feel your warmth—
yet for you still I burn.

Must’ve jinxed Spring with all my warm weather talk. Sorry guys.

April showers bring May flowers.


You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).

Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.

Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?

People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
