Now Playing Tracks


So we have an Italian exchange student at our school. And he and I were hanging out and he saw a pony, and he tried to show me but he didn’t know what it was called so he just pointed at it and said “Look, the compressed horse.” 

And then he just grinned at his complete understanding of the English language.  

Help Oni Visit Mama!




My mom and I have not seen each other in what will be 3 years by the end of this month. The photos above are of my brother and I, when I last said goodbye to her on August 29, 2011 (the middle photo is her and I in 2003). As I am now 18 years old, my mom has missed out on a very important time period of my life, and various meaningful events. I have done all I can to keep her updated on what’s going on everyday and how much my face has changed, but I am not content with that.

I am sure you all can imagine, it gets harder and harder everyday that goes by where I don’t get to hug the very woman who gave me life, who was my greatest friend while growing up.

So what exactly am I raising money for?
My mom lives in California (waaaay up there, near the Redwood National Park (I mean, way waaay up there in Cali)), and I live in Illinois. Funds are shortcoming, hence the need for donations, and I cannot say this enough: I love and miss her more than anything. I would absolutely love to be able to spend next summer in California, with my mom. I simply want to make up for lost time and finally create new and exciting memories together.

Saving up to see my mom after such a long time apart is currently my number 1 priority. I am working very hard to save all that I can while also trying to provide for myself and my family, down to the last dollar from paycheck to paycheck. Donating to me means more to me than you may possibly think, even if it’s just 1 dollar. That’s just 1 more dollar closer to my goal, thanks to all of you and your sweet contributions. I could send you artwork or a personalized note, too, if you’d like. Anything to give back my thanks to you and the kindness of your heart!
God Bless, and Thank You in Advance! xx


Welp! It’s officially been just over 3 years that I haven’t seen my mom in person. Thank you for putting up with my constant reblogging of this post! So far, we’ve raised $105.00! For now my goal is set at $2,000.00!
