Feeling Again

I’ve been dreaming lovely dreams lately. They remind me of what it felt like to feel alive. Most importantly, they reminded me how important it once was to write things down. Even if it’s just a few words. They resonate.

Back to Business

I needed to get my shit together. And now, for the most part, I have. I feel more confident and right about myself than I have in years. It’s so strange to feel this way. There’s a recognizable stream of energy I had completely forgotten about and after weeks of hard work–and motivation building changes […]

One Short

I’m currently working on the first draft of my personal statement for grad school. And boy is it rough. Ask me to write about anything else and I’m game. But when it comes to writing about myself, I just hit a wall. In all honestly, I really don’t want to go back to grad school; […]

The Stranger in my Apartment

There’s a stranger living in my apartment. I have him for a roommate. I can’t specifically recall when I let him move in, but I do remember bits and pieces. I guess I can say that it started out like any other relationship I have ever had: Slow. I started seeing him here and there […]

The Decision

He met him at a bar ten years ago. The man that would single-handedly change everything. Every memory and every moment of that week is still so painful and real. I had so much to learn, so much to ask, and so much to love. But this one moment, this one circumstance, changed all of […]

The Words I Couldn’t Say

So, I have this friend. And no, I’m not actually referring to myself. I have this friend who I met about six years ago. We met through a mutual friend on MySpace (Which I’m kind of hoping would make a comeback lol) and became good friends. About 2 months into our new friendship, I realized […]

To Say Goodbye

So, I love my new apartment. When I came to Austin looking for a place, I chose the first apartment I was shown. I walked in and instantly new. At that moment as I stood at the center of what would become my apartment, I knew that Austin and I were meant to be. But […]
