I Just Miss You, And I Wish I Knew Why

* July’s Blogapalooza Hour was skipped by me due to a prior commitment. So I stayed up late (sorry in advance for the typos), gave myself an hour, and wrote the post anyways. Our assignment from our editors was to write about someone, something, or some place that we miss.* “Sometimes I think about you,... Read more »

Christianity And A Conscience: It's Complicated.

God and I have a complicated relationship. I’ve always had a lot of questions, and have never really been settled on my beliefs, but I never doubted His existence.

When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Drink Champagne

I’m supposed to be sober. Until the marathon. In October. Oops. SPOILER ALERT: I’m drinking champagne. By myself. Out of a coffee mug. In my bed. Have you ever been a girl? IT FUCKING SUCKS.

It Just Isn't Fair

Life isn’t fair. You hear it all the time. When you’re little and you complain, parents are quick to let you know, “life isn’t fair.” When you don’t get your first job out of college, your friends take you out, get you drunk, and you all commiserate over how “life isn’t fair.” We all know...

Thinking Out Loud

Most of the time when I write I need silence, but every once in awhile I sit down to stare at the screen and I put a song on. Usually I turn it off, but this time the song I put on inspired the whole post. I’ve been obsessed with this song since the day... Read more »

Summertime, Sobriety, Sincerity, and a Couple Side Notes, Too

It’s July 2nd. Already. I don’t know where summer has gone, but it’s gone fast. Summer used to be my favorite time of the year. I still love it for all it stands for, but weather wise? I’m more of an early fall girl. My hair was not cut out for humidity. This week I’ve... Read more »
