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: Mental Health

So yeah, the whole blogging everyday thing didn’t last very long; in all honesty, I wasn’t expecting it to. At first, it was something that would take up some time everyday, and then it was something I looked forward to and had all these ideas for, and slowly but surely it became something I dreadedContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Mental Health”

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: Comparison

I’m sure you, like myself, have seen your “screen time” exponentially increase in the past few weeks. Now, more than ever, we’re desperate to connect–I watch more people’s Instagram stories everyday than I do Netflix. I think it’s equal parts curiosity and boredom that have lead me to this almost voyeuristic lifestyle, but like notContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Comparison”

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”

One Year Later…

Today I’m taking a little break from skincare to talk about something that’s been on my mind lately. It’s been almost year since I blew up my whole life, and in that time I have been able to reconnect with the person I missed so dearly: Myself. Stepping out over a cliff, not knowing ifContinue reading “One Year Later…”

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”

[Good] Hair

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been keenly aware of my hair. Hating it. Loving it. Straightening it. Spending tons of money on it. My family fighting about it. And this was all by the age of 5. By 10 I started straightening my hair everyday. And last year I finally fulfilled my dream ofContinue reading “[Good] Hair”

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”
