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 […]

Don’t Take On Other People’s Shit


I talk a lot about surrounding yourself with positive people – not letting other people ripple your waters and if they do; to keep paddling on. I realize that this isn’t always easy, because it’s just not realistic. We don’t always get a choice of who we are in the company of and even if […]

An Open Letter To Myself
