Quarantine Chronicles: Special Edition

Today, I watched along as one of my closest friends married the love of her life, via Facebook live. In the midst of her and her love vowing their hearts and souls to one another, I was overcome with emotion. All of them. I felt the spirits of other brides who are weathering this unprecedentedContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Special Edition”

Quarantine Chronicles: The Importance of Hobbies

Recently, I’ve been seeing a lot of memes and posts about “Fuck the people who tell you now is the time to find a hobby, start a new side hustle, etc” You know the drill. We can’t ever seem to find any balance in this society; either we’re working ourselves to death or we’re self-caringContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: The Importance of Hobbies”

Quarantine Chronicles: The Plight of Older Gen-Z

I was born in the summer of 1996, which makes me 23 years old, an olympic baby, and a part of one of the most hated generations in America. I’m one of the oldest of what we call Generation Z; the entitled, ADHD children that everyone loves to rail against. Us older Gen-Z’ers are notContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: The Plight of Older Gen-Z”

Quarantine Chronicles: Dating During a Global Pandemic

When I met my partner last September, at Dragon Con in Atlanta, I really wasn’t thinking that less than 7 months later we’d be navigating our relationship and a global pandemic… I mean don’t get me wrong, accepting a swig from his random Pineapple juice bottle filled with (I don’t even know what alcohol) wasContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Dating During a Global Pandemic”

Quarantine…

So here we are, once again… It’s been a while. But there’s no time like quarantine to start writing again. I’ve fully exhausted all other options: I showered, ate all the snacks, caught up with all my Netflix shows, downloaded TikTok and even interacted with the rest of the people in my house. I literallyContinue reading “Quarantine…”

Life

Well it’s been a while since I’ve shared my inner monologue on here. I guess crippling anxiety and depression will keep you busy. Jk. Not really. It’s fine I’m in therapy. But life has indeed been very busy. I mean it has and it hasn’t. It feels like I do a lot of things thatContinue reading “Life”

Trauma

Trauma is bullshit. Anyone who tells you otherwise is dumb. There’s nothing beautiful or redemptive about trauma. There’s no strength in trauma. It just is; it’s trauma. It’s complex, and simple, but nothing more. The strength is what comes after the trauma. It starts when you finally are able to muster up what little strengthContinue reading “Trauma”

The P Word: Plans

It really is funny how life turns out sometimes, isn’t it? What do you do when the person you’ve become looks nothing like what you expected, but maybe she’s better? I’ve always been the girl with a plan. Growing up lists, schedules and white boards were my best friends. I had anywhere from a twoContinue reading “The P Word: Plans”

The Privilege of Perspective

“I always tell my mom, there’s no such thing as balance. Balance is the sum total of how you prioritize people, things and situations in your life…” As many of you know, I recently graduated college, moved back home and have no job prospects at the moment. By today’s standards, I should be preparing toContinue reading “The Privilege of Perspective”

The Hardest “See Ya Later”

College and relationships go together like Social Media and deep insecurity. Whether you’re making friends with people who are just as miserable in that 8am as you, or possibly getting to know your life partner, it’s just easier in college. On your first day of freshman year, it’s like you’ve been invited inside this bubble.Continue reading “The Hardest “See Ya Later””
