A Letter To April

Dear April, I want to say this month has been peaceful but in reality, it’s been far from that. By the time you’re reading this, April, we will have closed down my office and moved everyone back to the main building. I understand why, but I still feel a pang of sadness when I think…

Having A Crisis

Having a crisis is funny, if you think about it. It’s like being drunk. All your inhibitions slip away and you’re in an empty¬†bathroom telling every girl you see how beautiful they are. Because they are but you don’t recognize yourself and the mirror tells no lies. Having a crisis is funny, really. One day,…

A Schedule Update

This last month I have been working diligently on revamping my schedule. No, I don’t mean I’m going to be switching my post days or times. I guess you could call this micromanaging my schedule. Laugh all you want at this, but I’m actually proud of myself. If you’ve been here since January you’ll have…

Winter girl

People always love Summer Spring and Fall But what about the Winter girl Who is the absence of it all What is she but silence And frozen over ponds Known mostly for her darkness And the heartbreak in her song Whenever she arrives Her presence quickly welcomed Until they realize what they’ve lost Begging once…

How To Budget Your Money

Do you find yourself constantly worrying about how you’re going to make it to your next paycheck? I know I used to when I was living alone in an apartment that was too expensive for my singular paycheck after my roommate left me high and dry. (Okay so maybe I’m still a little bitter about…

New Responsibilities

A few weeks ago I started training for a new position at work. I’m not sure if I will be moved to this job fully or if I’m just testing the waters. I suppose that debate isn’t really important at the moment. I mean, it is considering I’m doing the work of someone who would…

Strangers

Every day we rub shoulders with so many people. Not often do we see or¬†think about what their life is like. The first time we meet can leave a good or bad impression. And for some, that first time is almost a farce as they struggle to pretend to be the people you expect them…

Getting Baked: Honey Porter Glazed Skewers

Did you think I forgot about this series? I won’t lie to you, I wasn’t sure if this would be a thing. I’m extremely inconsistent and I don’t take time to actually take pictures of anything I make because I’m great at being a stereotypical millennial. But today I planned ahead! On Sunday we made…

A Review 2

I bought more poetry books and it was the best decision I’ve made on a whim in like, ever. In the last review I posted, I told you that I had 10 other books sitting in my Amazon cart begging for me to buy them. I bought four of them. Let me reiterate. Best. Decision….

This Is How We Grieve

Last night We brought out our old photo albums And spent time flicking through The sepia toned smiles of our bloodline This is how we grieve. Grandma’s middle name was the same as mom’s It was Virginia And there, That’s mom before she got sick She was beautiful Now this is all we have left…

A Bullshitter’s Guide to Landing Your Dream Job

First a little housekeeping. Sorry I’ve missed my last two Friday posts. Life has gotten in the way. I’m back though. I know it’s Saturday but we’re getting back on track. I’ll catch you on the flip side! Do you ever wonder how it seems that people just have jobs falling into their laps without…

A Letter To March

Dear March, I keep trying to write you this letter but nothing I write seems good enough. It feels like what I’m writing is inauthentic and that I’m forcing a positive outlook on the month. In reality, March, I spent most of this month stuck in my head not being able to focus on what…
