Let It (Fucking) Go


There is a fissure somewhere deep inside me as of late, with slow moving lava spilling through my cracks and igniting me. This is a fitting analogy as I’m a fire sign, and a triple fire sign at that. At my birthday one year, my friend Jenica let me know this and I’ll never forget […]

Letting Go Of My Mother


Today I want to talk about my Mother – and not in the carefree and lighthearted way I have mentioned her prior. Yes she is funny, often texts only in rhyme and limerick, and I’ve painted her character to showcase the brightness and hilarity she encompasses – a part of her I very much appreciate. […]

Stuck In A Rut & That’s Okay


Writing is hard. Writing that sentence was hard, and it wasn’t even a sentence – it was a mere three words. It took me about 1.5 seconds to put my fingertips to the clicking of a keyboard to articulate that emotion and I feel utterly exhausted. Literally, I could do with a nap right now. […]

Just A Couple Of Dicks In Love


Last week over cocktails, a friend asked me if Bridie and I ever argue. I racked my brain before almost settling on the fact that we really don’t – we have one of those annoying relationships where we communicate effectively and get along most of the time. Suddenly, the metaphorical light-bulb above my head went […]

She Was So Loved


It was 2006. I was 21-years-old, a senior at Keene State College, and my sister was in town visiting from where she resided in Burlington, Vermont. We were engaging in one of our favorite pastimes: a nice casual visit to the Humane Society in Swanzey, New Hampshire. I put an emphasis on the word casual, […]

I’m In Love & Shit


We were lying down on the twin-sized mattress she claimed as a bed in the loft space she shared with two other roommates. Our bodies were on top of a bizarre dinosaur themed quilt she’d picked up second hand years ago and insisted on carting along with her on her travels. I couldn’t help thinking […]

I’m Garbage With Girls


There’s a cute girl who works for UPS that comes by my office almost everyday. She makes my gaydar ping so last week I decided to be bold and finally say something to her. What suave statement did I make to get her attention? Did I tell her the color brown suited her? That it […]

WTF I’ve Been Doing


It’s Tuesday night at 5:30 PM and I’m exhausted. “How?” you wonder, “You don’t have a job or anywhere you need to be except a yoga class right now.” You’ll continue: “And I don’t feel particularly bad for you and your extreme first-world problems…in fact, I find you rather annoying and I don’t even want […]
