Capturing Campus: December

In my chest
a raw, flippant beating
taken but breathing
in your smell
frost and rose red
a chill on my skin
just looking at you
petals to pupils
dilate, and my diaphragm
folds at the bend
the arch of your spine
like a branch
your arms enveloping
the moment encased
I wish to stay
forever or longer
with you

MediaScape Musings # 6 : SHEI Magazine Fall Print

Greetings everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration🦃! I am excited to announce a remarkable event:

⦿ Time: 12/6 (Wed.) from 8 to 10 pm
⦿ Location: Club Above (215 N Main St #300, Ann Arbor, MI 48104)

As a print photo editor at SHEI, our team embarked on several inspiring photoshoots this semester. We experimented with several styles, and explored diverse locations such as parks, restaurants, and even unconventional spaces like bathrooms to fully realize our overarching theme—ALL GROWN UP! While behind-the-scenes photos provide a glimpse, they do not entirely capture the essence of our work. The latest magazine issue has been printed and will be available for everyone to pick up when you attend the Party!

Welcome to join us!!

Capturing Campus: November

Everything is so loud

music blasting

eardrums bursting

fingers buzzing

a jackhammer

to the brain

chanting someone’s name

its indiscernible–huh?

indiscernible shrieking

for joy

for cheer

for love

for hate

because you feel like it

all the talking

lips moving

shifting at the gumline

saying nothing

I can’t hear you

speak louder

say it again

shout it if you have to

drown it out if you have to


I’m afraid I’ll  l o s e  you

between the ringing

in my head

and the cracks

in the skyline

Capturing Campus: November

Parking Lot

I miss parking lot you
the you that dashed on concrete
raced in grocery carts
the you that laughed
until you cried
the you that always knew what to say
to ease the angst

I miss the feeling
of beautiful hurt
like pushing on a bruise
or twisting a tooth
with the tingle and ache
that made me fall for you
without stopping

I miss parking lot you
that I’ll never meet
for the first time
or the last


I wanted to make this post in celebration of the Polish Independence Day that is coming on November 11th. Poland has struggled with democracy, freedom of speech, and basic human rights in the past years due to the oppressive, far-right and Euroskeptic government ruling the country. This is changing now that parliamentary elections last month revealed the opposition was chosen to take over, which will open many new doors for Poland on the international scene and start positive change within the country. Truly an Independence Day to celebrate.
