Here's to you, Jamie Tworkowski

ince i bought that first TWLOHA shirt, i've bought over a dozen more. i'm an English Writing Major, a firm believer in the power of words, and a continued TWLOHA supporter. This semester i got to combine those things and write an analysis of the TWLOHA community by using the #TWLOHA10 response cards and spending a lot of time on social media. i looked at social media interactions and filled out response cards to examine what the TWLOHA community values. Nine pages and a lot of hours later, an essay happened that i hope reflects what the community is.

A Letter to December

Hello again. i've been expecting you. i know that you were waiting with patient, open arms for me to fall into you like i always have. We have such a familiar dance, you and i. You show up, your cloudy blue skies and dark afternoons and you romance me. You tempt me, telling me to let you in and let you win. You want so desperately to have me. You beg! Your spend your nights begging me to walk into the darkness, to let the wave crash over me and drown me. You want to swallow my joy, my confidence, my everything. You are hungry for everything that gives me the drive to get out of bed, hungry for anyone who could make me smile. You try with everything you have, with every minute of your every day to draw me into you.
