{miss you}


/via tumblr/

i crane my neck and tiptoe, hoping to see you. a steady stream of people pool out of the bus and onto the gravel lane. but none of them are you. i sigh despondently as the bus slowly creaks away.

my senses heighten when another screeches to a halt at the bus stop. eyes roving over the exit, i search for you. and…there you are. we spot each other almost at the same time. wide grins break across both our faces, and i find myself pushing past people and running to you.

you drop your bag and you’re scooping me up into a hug. i’m tearing up now.

“i’ve missed you,” i say. your eyes are sparkling with joy and unshed tears.

“i love you,” you mumble, burying your face in my shoulder.

we’re locked in an embrace, enclosed in our own little bubble. and for that one moment, all was right in the world.



good news, my writer’s block is gone and i have tons of things i want to write. bad news, i don’t know if i can find the time to write them.

but. it’s been less than 3 weeks since i last posted, and i think that isn’t too bad ??? =)

ps stalk me on instagram @ayyy.rika if you wanna. i’m more active on there 😉

it’s daytime
and i’m holding myself together
with good sense and ego
pride is the glue i use
to hold together my shattered pieces

it’s nighttime
and i can finally breathe
i let myself go and
fall into the blissful oblivion
of sleep and shadows


hey, guys. i hate not being to write and blog stuff. i’m really tired. can christmas come soon, please? thanks for staying with me. y’all are the best.

au revoir.


goodbye, summer


/via tumblr/

whew, it has been one heck of a summer.

on one hand, i’m just really pumped to start studying again and having a proper schedule (this is always me at the end of every summer tbh). unfortunately, this excitement never lasts long. i give it two weeks this time, tops.

on the other hand, i’m definitely going to miss my books. and my shows. and my writing. and my art. and just going out (who am i kidding, i’m mostly too lazy to go out anyway). and OH yes, sleeping in.

but honestly, i think i’m just looking forward to writing notes and making them pretty (plus super cool anatomical drawings for bio, let’s go!!).

i actually really want to do well this year, so i’m going to try super hard to not be (too) distracted by stuff. which might mean less posts on here (i’m so typical ugh sorry, guys).

but i promise i won’t neglect all of this. even if my posts might be a lot less frequent than they are now.

anyways, i hope y’all enjoyed your summer breaks!! mine was mostly unproductive, but it wasn’t bad:)) but press on, you guys!! christmas is practically round the corner!! i can feel the cold…the snow…oh, jokes. we don’t have winter here. nor fall. which sucks, because i think those are the prettiest seasons.

i need to stop rambling. and sidetracking. i do that a lot.

okay…well, so. enjoy the last of summer, y’all!!

the harsh, grating sound of wheels against stony ground drew attention to a grand-ish sort of carriage, not extraordinarily so, but decorated enough to show its owners’ wealth. a pair of birds looked up from their pecking, before hopping away hurriedly as it trundled past near them.

there was a girl in the carriage. her arm rested against the window sill, pushing past embroidered curtains. she gazed longingly out at the wild fields passing by them bathed in warm, friendly sunlight.

she envied the birds their freedom. they got to fly free, unopposed in clear skies while she, well, was on her way to her possible betrothal. she had never even met the man before, she thought bitterly. and she was going to marry him.

“come out of the sun, dear. you’ll ruin your complexion,” her mother fussed, tugging at her arm. she relented, if a little hesitantly, and leant back against her seat.

she allowed herself one last glance outside, as her mother pulled the curtains shut.


hellooooo, guys!! i’m not actually sure what inspired this, but i did think a bit of alice in alice in wonderland. ya know, the first movie? the non-cartoon one? remember her at the beginning? yeah.

anyways, i don’t have much to say today so:

sparklers 1

i have seen your words
i have heard your stories
and i wonder how
you could bear to
leave your vivid imaginations
those colorful worlds you dream up
in exchange for this drab one
this dull place we call reality


hey, friends!! okay, remember when i said i was obsessed with sparklers? i still am. so here’s a nice picture of one. because sparklers mean celebration, right? which means i probably have some good news (which i do). yay!

OKAY. so. i’m going to be a contributor on mytrendingstories.com !! so i’ll be posting on there, as well as here. this is kinda like a big thing for me, because i never thought my little blog would receive any recognition of any sort, so i’m actually really happy.

anyways, authors get their own profile page for their articles and things, you can find me here. it would really mean A LOT to me if you would show me some support there (maybe give me a follow? hehe)

well then. i was going to post something this week when i (coincidentally) received the email from the my trending stories admin, so i decided to combine my planned post and my happy news announcement post together.

it’s a warm summer’s evening
gravel roads dewy with last night’s rain
wind caresses my hair gently
i’m staring up at the cerulean sky
can’t help thinking about the way
it almost fits the color of your eyes


okay. to be entirely honest, i think i expected to be posting a lot more this summer. obviously, i haven’t been. i mean, i have been writing. i post a lot more on my side tumblr blog over here at onascribbledpage.tumblr.com mainly because it’s super convenient to post directly from my phone (i use my laptop to post on wordpress) and well, now that school’s out, i don’t really have much excuse to use my laptop much. so. there you have it. my excuse for not posting as much as i said i would. :))

well, that’s pretty much it. i’ll be on again soon, and THANKS FOR STAYING WITH ME.

au revoir:)



holding hands


home is when he held me in his arms
we sat together in the grass
and gazed up at the stars

home is when we sat at the same table
we chattered and made jokes
and laughed like there was no tomorrow

home is when i stayed by my lonesome
at my corner of the small library
with a small mountain of books to keep me company

home is when we laugh
at inside jokes that nobody understands
enclosed in our own little bubble


hello, y’all.

it’s been fast, hasn’t it? june is almost over now. soon enough, we’ll be looking back at july, then august. and looking towards september and…school.

but i’m pretty excited for school. summer’s a little…dare i say, boring right now. there, i said it. i can’t even count the number of books i’ve read so far this holiday (actually, i probably could. i just didn’t bother to HA)  non-HD movies from the internet? check. weekly trips to the library? check. extra music assignments? check.

well then. i’ll stop my complaining there. hope y’all enjoyed this:)
