I Have A Complicated Relationship With Mercury

This morning was not unlike many other mornings in my life where instead of waking up at the usual time of 7 o’clock, I woke up at 3 am. I needed to pee, I needed water, and I needed to wake up from an insane dream of me standing in temple reciting Torah, completely unawareContinue reading “I Have A Complicated Relationship With Mercury”

It Took A ‘Friendsgiving’ Dinner to Make Me Realize I’m Still Affected By the Friends Who Dumped Me

I know some asshole who didn’t have a heart said “time heals all wounds,” and “you’ll get over it eventually,” and “you’ll meet someone new,” but it’s been over three years and I am still affected by the friends who dumped me.

The New Activists To Do List

Enthusiastically, I decided to make November, The Giving Issue, primarily due out of a lack of complacency and a desire to get out and about here in Austin and meet new people, and while I can say my intention was clear, motivation is an entirely different thing. Since the presidential election, which is a whoppingContinue reading “The New Activists To Do List”

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. Regardless, I’m feeling sassy, strapped in for adventure, and ready to take on the month with all of you lovely creatures like never before. IContinue reading “I Didn’t Remember Your November Tovascopes Until Last Night at Midnight!”

Every introduction to the month usually starts with either a story or anecdote introducing the theme, to which, I proclaim proudly, the need and desire, to keep said theme—what proceeds is usually a combination of both striving and lazily meandering through the subject matter.
