A day off from work, away from the stifling heat and humidity of the beach store means the day unfolds before me like a vast, blank canvas. Summer has always been my favorite season, especially since moving back to New England. The winters are long and dark, and I feel a sense of almost, guilt, … More SUMMER 2019| Mood board & Playlist
On my flight down to Florida, on an unseasonably warm afternoon in Boston, my sister and I were seated next to an older man, in his late fifties, flying down to see his second wife. After about four small bottles of gin and one can of tonic, the small talk my sister had been fielding … More SAY SOMETHING| why we can’t always speak up…
Today, and the fact that it is (at this writing) International Cat Day really got me inspired to share something that is so important to me. Mainly, the importance of Emotional Support Animals.
I’m a Mess…and that’s Okay. I like to think that I look good ‘on paper’. From Instagram to Facebook, I like to think that the average viewer would think I know what I’m doing, or that I know who I am. I like to seem steadfast in this path I’m on, and for the most … More I’m a Mess…and that’s Okay.
I always think about how cliche it is to talk about how much I’ve “changed” in a year. Every time I try to reflect, I measure it in terms of change. What have I started doing more of, and what have I stopped doing? Have a shifted my views, or my principles? Do people really … More A Year in Review: 2016
The more I think, the more I write. The more I write the more I turn myself inside out trying to understand the things I’m thinking, grasping at concepts and feelings that have passed hoping to make sense of them in lengthy phrases and words. I understand what Rupi Kaur meant when she said she … More On Writing
This post was inspired by Emma’s post on The Messy Heads blog. After reading hers I couldn’t wait to collect my thoughts and write my own. All decisions I’ve made in this life have brought me to this point; my life at age twenty. I’ve lived in 4 countries and 7 houses, and still dream … More A Picture of My Life at 20
Flipping through my journal is like getting a one way ticket into my innermost feelings. My journal is filled to the brim with mindless doodles, a copious amount of lists, short poems and musings about what I see, hear, and feel. I’ve been wanting to share more of my writing with the world, which is … More Monthly Poems | August 2016
“She’s not hot” “she looks like an ugly baby” “how do you think she’s hot?” “she’s disgusting” We hold one of the most powerful weapons with us at all times. We seldom realize the destruction we cause, carelessly and without thought. All of these remarks. In one conversation. Made by one woman about another. Over … More Woman vs. Woman – No One Wins
Sometimes I’m not sure if I’m 20 or 12. I feel like both, and I feel like neither. I had, for so many years wondered who I would be, what I would look like, and what I’d be doing by the time I entered my 20’s (that was surreal to type). The glamorous, picture-perfect life … More 20 Things I’ve Learned by 20
