Goodbye Is Harder Than I Remember


Six years ago I made a decision that equal parts changed & saved my life. Looking back, I can’t imagine any other choice, or path that I could have walked. We sat in our shared dorm room on graduation weekend – the theses had been turned in and all that was left was accepting our […]

I’ve Peaked


I’m sitting here with a celebratory glass of whiskey like I deserve it for the sole attainment of the minute task of feeling inspired to sit down and write. If you’re not a writer you probably don’t understand writer’s block, and how it builds up inside of you as you hold a million words and […]

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 […]

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 […]

This is a hard post to write, because admitting true vulnerability is actually quite hard for me. This isn’t the kind of entry that will have a punch line, be sparkled with wit, or end with positivity or a cute takeaway. I am writing today because my heart is broken, and I am sharing this with […]

Why I Go To Therapy & You Should Too


Okay, so maybe you don’t need therapy. First of all, congratulations. Second of all, fuck you and your semi-charmed kind of life – seriously. I’ve been in therapy since my early teens and in some capacity I know I always will be. Whether I go once a week, a month, or a year – you know how […]

Things I’m Willing To Admit About Myself


I could be what some people would call a “odd duck,” or “strange ranger.” The Urban Dictionary defines the latter as someone who marches to the tune of their own sequin-clad, boot-wearing, star-wars-lovin’ drummer (The accuracy there is on point for me). I have a unique sense of humor and a reputation for being the person that will always […]

Stress: IRL


Pressure. Stress. Anxiety. Worry. Woe. No matter what you call it we can all agree on the common variable that the aforementioned is not enjoyable, nor is it something we like to experience. However, it inevitably happens – and we can’t always control the triggers that bring it to be the bull in the china shop of our […]
