It’s only been a few weeks, but 28 feels better than 27 ever did. I spent much of the previous year preoccupied with my own mortality – even quit smoking for good and abstained from alcohol for several months; it was a dry summer. On my way to a job interview, a deer hit me […]
five films I adore. If you ask me my favorite movies, I generally default to Heathers, Romeo + Juliet, and A Goofy Movie. However, these are five that would make, like, my top twenty for sure. (Mind, these particular stories are very heteronormative and pretty damn white, but beyond that…) Comet (2014) – currently on […]
It’s been two weeks since I’ve spoken to the one person I’ve communicated with almost every day for nearly two years.

i have a lot of thoughts about a lot of things. situations i’ve been in, people i’ve known, the mountains of feelings i’ve left unsaid… there is so much i want to say, apologize for or justify and not apologize for. i want to publicly talk about things i’ve been harboring so i can cut […]
There will always come a day where you can’t live up to being the girl that they want you to be, because that girl is a figment of their imagination.
