Pre-Chemo-Brain


I start chemotherapy on Thursday and I'm feeling rather restless in the meantime. My partner Deejay and I went on a Costco/Fred Meyer run (disinfecting wipes, Purell, soap, more soap, blah blah sanitary blah my immune system is gonna be garbage) this weekend and spent a while cleaning up the apartment. And by that I... Continue Reading →

A Long Awaited Update


It's strange to finally be blogging again (after almost two years) when I have such unexpected, shitty news. But here I am, here we are, and here we go: I was recently diagnosed with stage four lymphoma. I'd been really sick since March, constantly throwing up, feeling nauseas, and missing work. I underwent all kinds... Continue Reading →

A Few Fuck-Yous…


...Brought to you by international air and train travel. 1. Fuck you for wearing your skunk perfume on a plane (also on the train...I'm looking at you, passengers of renfe who showered in old man cologne). I'm glad you're making an effort to smell good but we're all hurtling through the sky in a coke... Continue Reading →

Or something to that effect -- I tend... Continue Reading →

Webs


Three spiders have made their homes outside my apartment windows. Sometimes, I watch them spin their webs in the dark, orange streetlights barely illuminating the fibers. Usually they're sheltered from the rainy Oregon weather but every so often, when it rains sideways, huge holes appear in the meticulously symmetrical designs. I'm always so amazed at the...

Think Less, Live More


Cosmetology school is hard. Not "bachelors in psychology" hard, not "this statistics class is so confusing" hard, not "I live in India and have had E. coli for 3 weeks" hard, but it's hard. It's a different form of learning and living. I don't always want to touch people. A lot of times, my anxiety... Continue Reading →

Moving


I found an apartment in Portland! I'll be living at 1326 I'm Not Telling You Lane, What If You're A Creeper City, OR...But whether I tell you the area or not, I'm so excited to be moving there. It's nice to have a better idea of what my life will be like in the future... Continue Reading →
