The summer of 2013 will go down as one of the most emotionally tormenting of my life. Knowing that I’d be graduating with my M.A. in May, I started applying to jobs late February/early March, [arrogantly] anticipating that I’d be employed by May or June at the latest. I was excited to see how […]
All day, every time I’ve turned on the TV, news outlets have been completely appalled that a half naked (okay, more like 80% naked) man is on adverts for some kind of salad dressing. SERIOUSLY??
Last week, I found out that my biological dad had been in a coma in the hospital after some kind of altercation. Not surprising news, as he’s always had a pattern of getting himself into these predicaments, but the family was talking about things like taking him off life support and having funeral plans in […]
You make me want to puke. Fuck you. Your face makes sick. Fuck you. I don’t know how you have this hold on me. When your name pops up, my stomach flips every which way. When you’re brought up, I hold back tears. i always wanted you but could never have you. I hate your […]
I don’t think I’ve ever felt as alone as I have the last 6 months. It’s pathetic, really. I blog and I tweet because I truly have no idea who to talk to.

I admit it. I’ve been a huge violator of posting political crap all over my Twitter and Facebook. I care. Sue me. As the election gets closer, I’m getting more and more anxious. For the better part of this calendar year, I kept thinking, “Obama’s got to win. He will. There’s no way the majority […]
Eeesssh! I’ve been terrible at updating this thing. I’m sorry. Quick update: Romney scares me. Obama 2012. School is stressful. Life is good. I’m working on improving myself. Physically, mentally, emotionally. I’m happy.
Twitter has really enhanced my life, in that it’s brought me back to a heightened level of learning about issues, talking to people I wouldn’t otherwise “know,” and networking on a level that really makes the world feel smaller and change feel more tangible! I follow Nicole Clark, a social worker, consultant, and activist. She […]
I apologize it’s been a little while since I last posted. Wait, no, I don’t. Because this is my dang blog and I’ll post when I want. But, still, I’m sorry. You see, I get into a funk sometimes. I guess you can blame it on a past of depression, insecurity and loneliness. I go […]
