how to be beautiful AND a slut
I am beautiful. I am kind, I am sincere.  I am not princess perfect body, face, hair.  I used to envy that, but turned out I only envied a combination of luck, makeup, and money. None of which I had particularly much of.  None of which I needed. It hurt to be told, in so …

picture perfect Love vs. Love
It’s a funny little thing, love. Or so it seems. There’s a poem, you see, floating around the void about Love and Motherhood. How love for one’s children isn’t just about how one talks about their child, or the hugs and kisses they post pictures of on their various accounts. But that it’s also about …

pieces of communication
Communication is necessary. Communication is the first step. Communication is not the end all and be all. You know, it’s not only what you say, but how you say it. It makes me think of a moment when Portia De Rossi’s character speaks to her underlings, I mean, employees, and her right hand man says …

social media, in its sincerest form, is a mirror of our lives
“Social media isn’t real, anyway,” my friend shrugs. It’s true. It rarely speaks to our realities. Nobody wants to hear that kind of thing, at least not in that context. Time and place, as with everything. I do not spill it all on social media. These people are not my therapist. It’s unfair of me …

love isn’t everything
Sometimes love is casual/less/etc. But it’s still love. It is always, always Love. Look, I’m not an idiot. I know that not every love will look like the love that sleeps next to me every night. If I have a love that is far from me, that I never/rarely see, that lives in another country. If…so many …

why not allow a little more beauty into this world?
A little piece of my mind tells me I must be truthful, always, always truthfully, what matters more than honesty? That voice says, be truthful, share the bad and ugly, as well as the good, beautiful, fantastical. That piece of my mind isn’t wrong, or I don’t believe so. I could share the nearly humorous …

do i want the happily ever after?
I’ve never had that overwhelming life defining moment. Things just kept happening. That was all. I’ve never had the wedding day, nerve wracking graduation (yes, I graduated, but just bachelor’s, nothing special), or the birth of my child. I’ve had very good days and very bad days. Or I’ve had days I floated on my …

seeing them for who they are shouldn’t ruin them
There’s this scene from Bojack Horseman with the titular Bojack gazing into his publicist, Anna Spanakopita’s, home. She’s making dinner. He watches from outside, from a distance, and thinks, It’s so sad that when you see someone as they really are, it ruins them. But he’s not saying it’s sad when you see someone reveal …

choose to be kind in an unkind world
I choose kindness, compassion, and warmth. Being the one to bring a smile to your lips- rather than tears to your eyes- makes me feel…full. Gentle. Soft. Welcoming. The one that attracts the pups and kittens and littles, who perhaps sense that I won’t hurt them. The one that you know will hold you, sharing …
