INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION My ultimate hope in putting this out into the world is that someone will love these words and this fractionned, fraction-of a story in a way that I haven’t quite figured out how to yet. This is by no means an exhaustive account of my thirty years of life and experiences. Some of the... Continue Reading →

New Year, New Fight

It's officially the New Year and for the past two years I have rung in midnight at home, alone, in tears.
