Dear Complaint Department

I know what you’re thinking; what does this born middle-class and considerably privileged white girl who has access to proper food, housing, health care and education have to complain about? What do I have to say about social injustices, prejudice, bias, poverty, famine, war, sexism, racism, ageism, any-ism that is worth listening to? I am... Continue Reading →

Moving Out, Moving On

  I haven’t been writing at all because I don’t want to remember this -- any of it. I don’t want to remember the knot in my throat or the pits in my stomach. I don’t want to remember the sleepless nights and very, very difficult mornings. And even though it's just moving, I am... Continue Reading →

January

There is a reason I spend New Year's Eve alone. No, it isn't just like any other night. I don't care what you say, New Year's Eve is special. NYE may just be the only global holiday as our calendar is considered throughout all religions, all cultures, and all ages. But back to why I... Continue Reading →

Some Final 2017 Thoughts

Loves, we are right down to it: the last week of twenty-seventeen! This year wasn't a fantastic year politically or environmentally and even for me on a lot of personal levels. Although I managed to accomplish one of my biggest goals this year, I still need to find ways to comfort and console myself when... Continue Reading →
