The last couple days, I've had a hell of a time sleeping. The thing is, I think I think the hard part hasn't been dealing with the loss of my friend. In many ways, those of us who knew him also knew this day was coming. He was an amazing man and he'd been fighting… Continue reading 232. How to… reach for the stars.
Okay, y'all, so I wasn't dead, but I've been gone for a hot minute, haven't I? The year got off to a bit of a rough start for me.

Okay, so... I spent most of the day in bed today. Bad Nova. This morning, when I woke up, my back and my neck were pretty messed up.

I know. It's been a long time since last!blog. But guys... Guys... being a new homeowner has been simultaneously the most awesome and the most exhausting thing I have ever experienced.

This is my first post this month that doesn't feature some kind of rainbow awesomeness. While I've been living it up in rainbow all month, I also understand that Pride isn't about rainbows. It's about acceptance and love and visibility. It's about freedom, and so many other things apart from what it's been commercialized as.… Continue reading 210. How to… accept what you cannot change.
Today is the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, so this post seemed especially fitting for today. When I was a little girl in school, I loved to read. I'd read everything, but I was especially interested in history... and still am today. We would get our little homework assignments to read… Continue reading 209. How to… remember what’s really worth it.
Some of y'all may not have heard this before, so it may be hard to believe, but... it's okay to have a bad day. It's okay to be sad, or have doubts.
