I’m An Adult


I think I have a really skewed view of what it means to “feel like an adult.” Most of my friends who consider themselves “adults” do things like buy houses or get married but fortunately for the sake of this blog’s existence – that’s not been my experience. Yes, instead of settling down, I chose […]

My Actual Dating Life


This isn’t the first time I’ve devoted an entire blog entry to the topic at large, and I’m sure as shit it won’t be the last. The people in my life seem to like me and as a result I am constantly showered with the sentiment of; “But you’re so great! I don’t understand why […]

Baby I Was Born This Gay


The other day I made the mistake of perusing the Gay & Lesbian section of Netflix. What exactly will follow is yet to be seen, but I’m pretty sure it goes a little something like this: I fall into a big, gay black hole and I’m never seen again. Tell my parents goodbye, and please […]
