5 Years From Now

They tell me I have commitment issues That not making a choice, is still making a choice to let others choose for you They ask me what I want to be doing in 5 years time And I tell them I do not know. I am afraid of starting over I am afraid of starting…

A Letter To July

Dear July, I want to start by saying thank you. You were not perfect, but you were just what I needed. You took me on weekend getaways and got me out of my shell more than I have ever been before, July. I can’t imagine where I would be now without that. Just for this…

A Letter To June

Dear June, What a whirlwind you’ve been. I did not expect for my life to be going in this direction. What direction that is, I’m not quite sure. It’s new and uncertain and so very different. Everyday I am faced with reminders of how different things are from the last time. Or really, how different…

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 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…

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…

Letter to Heartbreak

How do I explain A grief that was never mine But it’s your birthday And I don’t know what to say Except I wish you were here I wonder about How different life would be If you had stayed A few weeks might have changed The direction of our lives But now I don’t think…

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,…
