One Time I Wrote Fanfic


It was awesome. There's something really exhilarating about writing absolute tripe on the internet...maybe that's why I like blogging. Anyway, it's some of the most ridiculous nonsense I've ever written but I thought I'd share it with you here, because...because it's Downton Abbey fanfic and Carson is sassy in it. So you're welcome.   Midnight... Continue Reading →

Mating Rituals


My roommate fed me a cheese curd from Dairy Queen earlier today and I told her I loved her because...cheese. She just stuck it right in my mouth cuz she loves me, and now the feeling is mutual. Then...then she utteredĀ the funniest, truest thing I've heard all week: "Before you mate with the wild Cappy,... Continue Reading →

Henrietta


I'd never liked antiquing before -- my mother half-dragging me around rooms full of musty nonsense that nobody wanted, my feet tired, my nose stinging a little from all that dust and "history." History in quotes, of course, because much of it seems to be weird plastic crap from the 1970s that got tossed out... Continue Reading →

Good.


I never know how to explain this place to people when they ask, so I always just awkwardly say "good." I thought maybe I hated it before, which was mostly due to the fact that I was basically living on a toilet dealing with some serious E. coli. But now, since my stomach is no... Continue Reading →

God Bless You All (Day 3)


Religion in India is a way of life, and the people here practice it with an intensity I've never experienced before in America. We went to a Catholic cathedral today and I was almost in tears because everyone there was so focused on their devotion. It was a truly beautiful thing to see. The churches... Continue Reading →

First Impressions


...aka a whole bunch of babbling about this beautiful, crazy city. I sent my family an email and figured instead of writing a new post, I'd just post parts of it here (lightly edited for clarification purposes) because I'm exhausted and it's only 8 pm. The sun sets here around 6:30, so...it's hard to stay... Continue Reading →


Dear Friends, Well, 2013 sure did fly by -- like me, on my private jet, flying off to Morocco. I have, once again, had an amazing year that was probably much more exciting than yours. As you probably read in the tabloids, my new lover Mickey and I were swept up in a whirlwind romance... Continue Reading →

The Rebirth


It's been two years, either today or yesterday, since life meant very little to me. Two years since I broke and my mother had to take a plane at 6 a.m. to be with me, to keep me safe and protected. Two years since I started rebuilding. I never expected any of that to happen,... Continue Reading →

An Ode to a Pencil
