I Don’t Want To Write About Love Anymore

I don’t want to write about love anymore. Well, it’s getting harder and harder to write about the love in my own life. Before… It was easier to write about the things in my head. Love didn’t live there. Not for anyone but me. I never really had a partner who had the patience to…

Donuts are the Sweets Equivalent of the F-Boy

As of today, I have tracked everything I eat, and have had at least some form of physical exercise for over 165 days straight. I have dropped three pant sizes and my boyfriend’s jeans are falling off of me. My boyfriend is a fit fellow with the perfect little waist and abs to match. He…

“You’re in love…”

My friends state this to me as a fact from where they stand… on the outside.  This is the first time I have not let anyone in. There’s no play by play. There’s no “Facebook Official”. There’s no #MCM. This is the first time I haven’t needed any of that. My friends catch me off…

Getting My Life: A Year of Words

Write it down on real paper with a real pencil. And watch shit get real. – Erykah Badu I know, before you get at me like: “what words?” because I haven’t posted on the blog much this year, let me clarify: This year I poured a lot of words into other projects, and I honestly…

Attachments

I get attached to the smallest things, and those things almost always make an impact on big decisions.  I realized that, as I watched my cat try her hardest to stay close to me as I found myself detached from the outside world lately.  She would sleep in my bed in my favorite spot or…

Just Friends

  We went from hand holding to high fives No more I miss you’s because we talk more than ever Better as friends? Or a needed pause with no pressure? No longer walking in the ordered footsteps of courtship because I’m floating Further away from who I’m supposed to be and closer to who I…

Say Something I’m Giving Up On You

For every person who waited for words that would never come When a blind eye was given to the actions leading up to the moments When an instant connection begins to sound like static When the hugs feel one sided When the last kiss felt strained When the last goodbye felt permanent Constant communication goes…

NY Gal, Southern Comfort

You know those coffee commercials or the latest one about lotion where the people getting ready in the morning are just jumping into their clothes, and are happy to start their day. Sometimes the montage shows them skipping in the streets and greeting neighbors and strangers. Some of these commercials have the nerve to be…

Occupational Hazard: Trying to Date When You Write About Dating Online

The only thing I like about online dating is that you get to be sort-of anonymous. Assuming you’re not about that Catfish life, you are using your real picture, and if you care about actually meeting someone who will like your personality you try to display enough of it on the essay portion of your…
