NYC

I can’t sleep tonight Thinking of New York City And how different It is from my little town Three thousand miles away

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…

Getting Baked: Cheesecake

This week on Getting Baked, we actually bake. Lately every time we have a get together we make this cheesecake and I figure I could exploit that even further by using it for my blog. It’s very good. The only downside to making cheesecake is how freaking long it takes to make. I always forget…

A Review 3

Maybe I have a problem but honestly, I’m not even worried about it. As usual, there are 4 books that I ordered this month. I’m going to say that is because it averages to about one book per week, even if I read them in one sitting. I wanted to savor these books when I…

Between

I feel caught between Loving you and knowing that I deserve better All the while, wanting both And neither at the same time Sometimes all you need a short little poem to get your thoughts across. Happy Monday to you!¬†I want to just say thank you so much to those of you who continue to…

How To Create A Schedule And Stick To It

Last week you may have read that I was making a schedule that was a bit more strict and I figure why not talk about how I’m doing it. (Even if I did immediately skip a day. I’m calling it a vacation.) Be passionate about the thing. Make sure you really care about what you’re…

A Secret Project

For those of you who might not know, April was National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) in which many artists take part in a writing a poem every day for 30 days. I secretly decided to take on this project because I want to push myself further as a writer and I thought this would be…

You And Me

You so often like to tell me It’s you and me against the world But it’s not the world that is my worry It’s the demons that unfurl In times of insecurity When our voices turn against The ones that we hold dear Cutting quick in false pretense It’s what will happen When the spark…

Wanna Bet?

Well, well, well. What do we have here? You guessed it! We’re starting another series and I’m a bit excited! In this series we will be challenging ourselves to do something. Maybe it will be a 30 day challenge, or maybe it will be a one and done challenge. This is where I need your…

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…
