Thawing Out

I was 20 years old when G and I moved into our first apartment alone together. It was in a... transitional part of town... but it was in my price range. The block we lived on was pretty safe. Well except for the drug den across the street. And also except for that time when…

Forgiveness?

Tonight I stumbled upon a podcast with one of my ex boyfriends as a guest host. And by stumbled upon I mean I exhaustively researched his name on the interwebs until I found something of interest. I hit play and about 15 minutes in my jaw dropped. He began discussing our past relationship: "Essentially I was…

Sister cousin 

I met my first best friend when I was just shy of 2 years old. No, I do not have a memory of this. For as long as my memory has served me, though, she has always been there. This story is about my cousin. When we were kids, we lived in the same house…

First Date Freak Out

I had a first date the other night. To say it went well would be the most gross understatement of this MILLENNIUM. Okay, Okay... not really. But it did go really well. I have not heard from him since, though, and I am freaking out. Not so much outwardly freaking out but the kind of…

Homeland.

I recently traveled to Japan. First time in Asia. Luckily made it back to the states before N Korea started launching missiles. It was pretty dope but it was also incredibly lonely. Before this, I had spent the past 10 months of my life resenting my country- resenting my homeland. I was and still am…

Surviving…

I still love the show Survivor. CBS's target audience with this show is the 60+ age group and I fit really nicely into that category.- not ashamed of it. Tonight is the second episode of the new season and I always feel so badly for the first couple of survivors voted out. They were so…

I was a distraction

I lost my virginity when I was 16. My dad had just left my mother and our house but I saw it as my dad had just left me. All of my friends were doing it and my boyfriend had just dumped me but then suddenly wanted me back and before I knew what was…

Not Interested Anymore.

"I'm afraid of what we'll do if we hang out," was an unprompted text message that I received at 12:22am Wednesday morning. I scrolled through my text stream- the last time he texted me was October 6th 2014 following the announcement of his now cancelled engagement. It was a text to follow up on a…

Kardashian pants

I have a pair of Kardashian designed pants from Sears that have a very bright, colorful, and specific print on them. They are eccentric, to say the least, but fun for when I want to go out dancing with my friends. I wore them out to dinner the first time I met Andie and I…

Standing with an army

I was allowed to have one person in the room with me for labor and delivery, beyond the mother of the child. My mom never shared this with me, but my aunts have since told me that she was deeply hurt I had not asked her to be present. This was hard for me to…
