She had tried to put the moves on him a few weeks prior. He had told me. I was upset of course, but thankful that nothing worse had happened. I was dealing with it. At least I thought I was. … Continue reading
No. If I go through those doors and work that twelve hour I have fallen to weakness. I will have let my fear of not having a job overwhelm my sense of dignity and priorities. My self worth even. But, weak is exactly what I will be. Fearful is exactly what I’m going to be. I’m going to do my time. Come home. Go to bed. Then do it all over again.

Black Friday us upon us, and I’m not at all excited about it. I have to work from 8pm Thursday to 8am on Friday. For what? It feels like just a bunch of greed really.

I have a friend who is very anti-feminist. The story is vague on details, but he often likes to play it up continually. Constant posts about being a “menist” often come into my Facebook feed, and as a feminist our … Continue reading
I’ll keep it So close to my vest You’ll never know If it’s tears in my eyes Or glitter on my eyelashes
Christians are upset that Starbucks didn’t put holiday decorations on their cups. I’m over here like: “I’m just happy they gave me a clean but festive canvas to doodle on.” Let’s calm down people.
Am I really okay Documenting my life Through windows Within four walls Of plaster Pretending that I’m protected? Am I not made to weather The storms in the world? Is my own skin not Enough protection? Is my mind so … Continue reading
I can’t say exactly when I noticed its sudden appearance, but it didn’t bother me much to know it was there. I do recall I first noticed it, and I left the cat to deal with it as she pleased, … Continue reading
