Currently… in October 2018

  FEELING:  SO OPTIMISTIC. And nostalgic, but in that “look how far I’ve come” kind of way. My life was turned completely upside-down on this day last year. Right now, I’m working two jobs that I love, living in the most fabulous apartment, dating someone who adores me and who is so easy to spend time with,[…]

Autumn Wish List 2017, Revisited

  *** HELLO, FRIENDS! During a Drafts Folder Clear-Out, I came across this draft that I’d last edited on September 27th, 2017. I abandoned this post — and my blog, really — for basically all of autumn after that while I was going through a bad breakup. A year has[…]

Now That I’ve Seen Batman’s Penis, I’ll Never Be The Same

  So, DC Comics has launched a new label called “DC Black” (“why it gotta be black?” — RuPaul) which is aimed at a more “mature” audience, presumably to tell stories with more sexual content, because they had no problem grappling with extreme, disturbing violence content under their existing label.[…]

HOW Tired Am I? *THIS* Tired

  I *thrive* on being busy. I sleep better when I’m busy, drink more water when I’m busy, keep my room cleaner when I’m busy. I’ve been pretty busy lately, but it’s a delicate balance. I know that I’m too busy and too tired when THIS happens:   I think it was the night of the[…]

Back To School

  I haven’t been a student since 2007.   HOLY CRAP, I’m old!   And yet, I don’t think a week goes by that I don’t have a dream about going back to school.   I’ve been using the Dream Journal Ultimate app to log my dreams for the past[…]

After A Decade Of New York, You Will…

  Today is my 10-year anniversary of moving to New York City.   You probably know me as someone who talks a lot. HA! I do. But reflecting on this momentous occasion, and what it means to me, I’m actually at a loss for words. I can’t seem to form[…]

Currently… in September 2018

  FEELING:  Purposeful. I’m pretty busy now, but I am reaping the rewards of all my hard work and I’m absolutely loving it. Things have been a little hectic and I can’t lie, Leo season was bringing PLENTY of drama and I’m kind of happy to be in nice, organized, Virgo[…]

Dance As If Nobody’s Watching — Oh God, Are They Watching?

  You know how some people are afraid to dance because they claim that they “can’t dance”?   Hmm…. can’t relate.   Not that I’m bragging about my skills on the dance floor! Au contraire — I am openly and unapologetically an awful dancer. But I’ve always taken a special joy in dancing.   I vividly[…]

What’s Cooking?

I used to shit on cooking. Like, a lot. *looks back at that unsavory sentence* *decides to leave it in anyway*   Basically, I would run around boasting, “I can’t cook!” “I can’t cook!” like it was some kind of badge of Third-Wave Feminist Honor. No I will not get back[…]

    At any given time, I will have at least 5 tampons in my bag. 24/7/365. In the name of “being prepared.”   But that’s not all: of the 3 bags I carry with me on a regular basis (purse, backpack, and tour bag), each of them have their[…]

Hate-Watching “Snog, Marry, Avoid”

  Generally speaking, I’m not a huge fan of makeover shows anyway. in the Venn Diagram of “Things I Hate” and “Things I Watch Ironically,” “Makeover Shows” stay squarely in the former category. Maybe it’s the little girl inside me, who remembers being forced to wear way-too-uncomfortable tights with dresses,[…]

My Little Problem With The Big Sick

  So the other day, I watched the romantic comedy The Big Sick! I’d been wanting to see this movie for a long time, basically since it first came out and was immediately heralded by critics. Now, if you know anything about the movie, you know that it’s the true story of the early[…]

As you know, it was recently MY BIRTHDAY* *yes, it was like, a week and a half ago, but to me, a birthday is more like a state of mind! And when I decide I want special treatment, it’s My Birthday.   So, I was still in a Birthday State[…]
