Taking A Break

I’ve been staring at this blank page for half an hour now. I feel a mix of sadness and frustration. I’ve not kept up with planning posts and getting the right blogs scheduled for the right days. I’ll get back on track. I know I will eventually but for now, if I can ask you…

Meeting The Parents

This has been a weird and surprising week, to say the least. Work has been hectic and stressful. Personal life has been hectic and stressful. And romantic life has been, a thing? I know. Even I’m surprised.  Honestly I’m not going to go into details because I’m uncomfortable with the idea of that. But in…

A Twelve Step Guide To Staying Single

Look, I know you’re all wondering how I’ve managed to be single for as long as I have. I don’t want to say that I’m an expert at this but I’ve been single all my life with the exception of 10 months. Okay, maybe I do want to say I’m an expert. Being single is…

Hair (Not Just a Musical)

I think I can officially call myself a hair professional. I have spent the last 6 months or so, completely frustrated with my hair. It wasn’t really any one’s fault but my own. Well and the fact that the person who usually does my hair decided to move to the middle of no where. I…

A Review 4

I Remember

I remember loving you like it was yesterday Your body so familiar Your smile looked like home But still out of place I remember loving you like sour patch kids Every fight left me sour But our make ups were so sweet I was addicted I remember loving you like the universe Floating like zero…

A Letter To May

Dear May, Where do I begin? It feels like just yesterday I was writing to April. Now we’ve barely had time to breath. I’m taking advantage of my three day weekend and giving myself a mini vacation. I will be traveling back to see old friends and spend some time catching up with writing. If…

Losing Time

I’m losing time and sleep And wasting ink and paper To try and figure out What’s waiting in my future I’m holding tight onto the past And begging the present not to go It’s like I’ve heard this all before Yet still I do not know How not to be engulfed In this overwhelming fear…

Goodbye: A Follow Up

I’ve officially been gone from my last job for a year (as of Sunday.) I find it so weird to compare and contrast where I am now and where I was. In a lot of ways there are similarities. For example, I have a backlog of funds in which I could quit my job and…
