A year ago today, I became an aunt for the second time. The first time, I was a 16 year old kid. I had just graduated high school and just about to leave for college in another country. I would turn 17 in ten days. I had never witnessed my mother going through pregnancy or... Read more »

I Can't Dance And You Probably Can't Either

I am a terrible dancer. Probably. I have all the symptoms that would suggest it. I’m tall and awkward, so I can’t hide my long lady wingspan. I’m incredibly uncoordinated.
