I’m Not Sure Why I Feel Compelled To Share When I’m Not Ready

I haven’t written anything in such a long time that I feel like if I even tried to begin writing, like I am now, it will end up becoming a large pile of crap that stares me in the face for years to come.

Saying Goodbye To November & Hello To December

Welcome to the end of the month wrap up that never happened, and the beginning of the month intro that is currently not fully formed. Here’s the thing, November ended in a dysfunctional way.

I Didn’t Remember Your November Tovascopes Until Last Night at Midnight!

They’re late, but they’re here. Apparently, I didn’t get the rush of energy in Scorpio season because I was too busy stressing out over the midterm elections. So sue me.

IContinue reading “I Didn’t Remember Your November Tovascopes Until Last Night at Midnight!”

Conflict Resolution For Your Meyers-Briggs Personality Type

During the Friendship Issue, one of the things that I really wanted to discuss was the way in which we handle conflicts as friends.

However, the process of handling conflict also entirely depends on the person, for some aggression and argumentative stylesContinue reading “Conflict Resolution For Your Meyers-Briggs Personality Type”

I Don’t Want to Subscribe to Instant Gratification Anymore.

I think the most difficult thing about being a writer is actually writing. For any writer, but mostly just myself, the task is something I thoroughly enjoy and loathe with my entire being. It’s like pulling teeth, literally—because the process is pain and torture, but in the end, it’s good because the pain goes awayContinue reading “I Don’t Want to Subscribe to Instant Gratification Anymore.”

Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really, Want.

I was listening to a podcast the other day about artists being honest with themselves and answering the question, ‘what do I want?’ At first, I was completely thrown off by the question because the host was talking about it in such a narrow way. He basically was saying, if you’re not working on yourContinue reading “Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really, Want.”

Feeling Stuck & Unmotivated, What the ‘F’ Do I Do?

Some mornings I will wake up, motivated to get the ball rolling and find myself hours later caught in a tidal wave of doubt, distraction, and indifference to my lack of motivation. Working from home lends itself to all sorts of weird conundrums that most people don’t have to deal with because they have theContinue reading “Feeling Stuck & Unmotivated, What the ‘F’ Do I Do?”

What I Realized After a Sleepless Night

My weekends are usually spent wandering around this new city Austin, finding new places to eat, and attempting the art of staying cool. This weekend was not unlike any other, except that for the first time, in a really long time, I was eager to get it over with. On the surface, I played itContinue reading “What I Realized After a Sleepless Night”

It’s BeyoncĂ©’s Birthday So Here Is Your Goodie Bag!

Can we just literally do a temperature check? Like, is it still 90 degrees here in Austin, Texas while clearly being BeyoncĂ©’s Birthday, and like, September? I’m sorry, but this Californian is definitely not used to this weather. Also, like, what the hell is up with the severity of the rain here? I can’t. I’mContinue reading “It’s BeyoncĂ©’s Birthday So Here Is Your Goodie Bag!”

August is Officially the Worst Month Ever

If August taught me anything, it’s that the best laid plans of mice and men, oft’ go awry. Remember that old saying by Robert Burns you were forced to learn in Literature class in third grade? ‘No.’ Just me? August has taught me exactly that. As intentional as you want to be and as optimisticContinue reading “August is Officially the Worst Month Ever”

I am What I Say That I am

For whatever reason, a memory came up the other night of a moment where I was on a date, with a now ex, when a woman came up to our table and started gasping. Clearly intoxicated, she was staring, gasping, and struggling to form words when she finally introduced herself as a psychic—then proceeding toContinue reading “I am What I Say That I am”
