I challenge I had when dating was that whenever I would share my writings with the guy, I felt closer to them. Even if it turned out they didn't read it in the end, I immediately felt close just by merely sending it there way. Why did I connect to easily? Was my soul reaching … Continue reading Projected Intimacy
If you're just tuning in... Hi!!!!! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a good day! Also, let me catch you up on my most recent theme... I've decided for the trillionth time to rehash the dating debacles of my twenties. Maybe decided isn't the right word. More like, was called to. And, as … Continue reading I am a Sun, not a Moon!
This week, I watched The Little Mermaid with my daughter. She wanted to play, and I'm like, "No, child, we are watching TV!" Obviously, she happily acquiesced. And obviously, this wasn't my highest moment as a parent (but it wasn't my lowest either!). Being in a parent's shoes, as I have been for the past … Continue reading Ursula, No You Didn’t!: How I Relate to Ariel from The Little Mermaid
Four years ago, I arrived (pun intended) in Atlanta, bright-eyed and bushy tailed to get the hell out of NYC Well, my hubby and I took longer than I expected to get settled financially and career-wise (having our first child 6 months after we moved contributed to that!), but 4 years in and I feel … Continue reading To Arrive

#DemiLovatoConfident I used to think that some people were just lucky because they were popular and always got invited out. Like they had some sort of pizzaz that just drew people toward them. Now I’m wondering if it's more so that the universe is just giving them back the energy that they put in. Like … Continue reading What’s Wrong with Being Confident?
I love alliteration, don't you? But it only works when it's meaningful. Like "ridiculous raisins regardless" sounds cool, but it doesn't have the same "ooh" and "ahh" factor as the title of this blog post. Do you agree? Which brings me to... I believe that the dark times in our life hold treasures that shine … Continue reading Transmutation: Translating Tragedy into Triumph
I am no stranger to back pain. I had chronic back pain in my mid-twenties for 1.5 years. It was depressing as hell. And frustrating too—going from PT to PT trying to figure out the best treatment for it. All while continuing to work full time and have an hour commute each way. I marinated … Continue reading Back Pain is Back
I have Doja Cat to thank for my becoming more confident in my self-expression. When I watched her interview with MTV a couple months back she said she is doing what she loves and she is so happy others enjoy it—cuz she gonna keep on producing her style. The thing is, the video she made … Continue reading In the Words of Doja Cat…
In 7th grade we had a school sleepover and I wore a t-shirt to sleep that said "Yo quiero Taco Bell" and had a picture of the chihuahua from the commercial. My whole childhood I was self-conscious about wearing shirts with words on them. I didn't want to make a statement, make waves, offend someone, … Continue reading Yo Quiero Taco Bell
