Dear Me….

Inspired by Solange’s beautiful letter to her teenage self, a Facebook friend asked, “What’s ONE thing (or more!) you would want tell your ‘freshly graduated’ self?” Here’s my answer… I’d tell newly graduated high school me: Stop being such a people pleaser. The most important person that matters is you. Do not forsake your comfort […]

On growth…

A few days ago two friends on Facebook asked questions that really piqued my interest. And if you know me you’ll know I rarely meet an inquiry that I don’t like to answer, so of course I had to weigh in. Neither question posed was related to the other, but they both had a common […]

On being too hard on myself…

I didn’t think I was previously, honestly. But this weekend I came to terms with the fact that I am. Like…extremely so. Not to the point of demanding perfection, but it’s damn near on the horizon. So if you follow me on social media, you know I did the Shamrock Shuffle on Sunday 04.02. The […]

On dating…(a-fucking-gain)…

I came across this meme yesterday and died laughing. Then I promptly forwarded it over to three friends, declaring it to be me. All three agreed, with one even going as far to say that’s why she never pays me any attention when I lament my single status. In her words, “Whenever you mention it […]

On knowing my limits…

I can’t sleep so instead I’m choosing to take the time to blog. This will likely be rambley and very stream of conscious. So…like every other blog entry in this space, lol. I recently had to make a pretty tough decision and I’ve been beating myself up about it. You see, I’m a pretty ambitious […]

On Adore You…

This may get rambley.  It’s stream of consciousness…just some thoughts I’ve been mulling over. I didn’t write a book to become an author.  Now that may sound strange to some of you reading this because the idea of a person who pens a body of work and an author are synonymous, but in my crazy […]

On vulnerability part deux…

Can I be real a second? For just a millisecond. Let down my guard and tell the people how I feel a second…? I turned thirty-four on the eighteenth. It was a fun day. I had a good time with even better company. But toward the end of the day, I had a semi-emotional breakdown […]

On my problem with demanding humility…

I will never begrudge anyone for being cocky. This sort of attitude is expected from me due to the traits associated with my star sign and our alleged inability to be humble. [insert eye roll here] This has been a thing on my mind for quite some time. Whenever someone is being honored for excelling […]

On two halves making a whole…

This morning I was driving to work and one of my favorite songs (that I hate is one of my favorite songs because of who introduced it to me) shuffled on, Amel Larrieux’s “Make Me Whole“. It’s a beautiful love song. If you’ve never heard it, click that link up there and let it accompany […]

BONUS: Fiction (A Short)

I was talking to someone about short stories on Twitter (Hi Brandon!) and remembered this. So I decided I wanted to share. Feedback is awesome or whateva.
