i updated my privacy policy

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’ve never really talked openly about my relationship because I’m terrified of jinxing it. This far into it and, yes, I keep thinking about messing it up. Besides, there’s not much I believe in […]

that thing you wish you could say goodbye to

forgive the sentence ending preposition, but it’s time i ‘fess up. i wanted to do this series differently. have articles of varying points of view lined up. share and promote the voices of women i love and care about. crack open the door to vulnerability and show you are not the only person in that […]

“i’m not here looking for absolution because i’ve found myself an old solution”

on doubt, inspiration, and doing better.

‘got my vices in a vice again’

i collage’d my face yesterday because sc was/maybe still is under a state of emergency due to all the weather and flooding (i don’t actually know; i stayed in bed all weekend) and i had writer’s block but also allergies so why the hell not? (there are fifteen pictures of me in this one photo […]

5.

at a snail’s pace, i’ve been filling up my moleskin but it’s the only story that’s held my attention for this long. the muse is pretty loud. when you have to distance yourself from something you actually really like to the point that your pavlovian response is abivalence or even negative and you have to […]
