Oh, You Want to Go on a Date? Please Send Me a Video Submission

Oh, You Want to Go on a Date? Please Send Me a Video Submission
I started seeing a new therapist a few weeks ago. Is she as good as my last one? Obviously not. But I had to settle. She’s as good as I’m going to get with my thinning hair and awkward proportions. I shared my many dating issues with her. How picky I am. How I obsess... Read more »

Comedy Will Never Make Me Happy, and Maybe That's Okay
It kind of sucks when you realize that happiness can only come from within. No amount of success, money, or weight you lose will make you happy.

Part I of Rock Bottom: My Experience in the Troubled Teen Industry
I started writing this blog post a few weeks ago. I wanted to talk about my experience as a “troubled teen” and my time entangled in the troubled teen industry.

A Letter to my Ex (Therapist)

Today I saw a new therapist, “Angela”. My last therapist, “Mia” moved to California a month and a half ago, and wasn’t feeling the whole “long-distance” thing, so I guess we’re both seeing other people. She was the best therapist I’ve ever had; I’ve had a lot of therapists. Angela kept bringing up Mia, which was painful. It’s like, I... Read more »
