They Don’t Have Cancer


Long story short: I've felt like shit over the past few days. My entire mouth hurt until today (who knew that was a thing) and everything I ate tasted really tart, including water. I feel like I've been hit by a truck, and I've thrown up a couple times. Walks around the block are a... Continue Reading →

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.

A Few Fuck-Yous…


...Brought to you by international air and train travel. 1.

I'm glad you're making an effort to smell good but we're all hurtling through the sky in a coke... Continue Reading →

Who, What, Where (A Brief Autobiography)


Contrary to popular belief, I am indeed still alive and well. It's been a rocky road (unfortunately not the ice cream, though I desperately wish it was), and I have absolutely not fulfilled my resolution to continue blogging more often, as it's been about 4 months since my last post. I've said this before (so many...

Can We Discuss Disney Princesses Though


I was on the phone with my dad yesterday crying (surprise) over my lack of romantic luck recently. He gave me some really wonderful advice, the most hilarious of which came when he said, "The worst thing Disney ever did for society was write those stupid happy endings." Or something to that effect -- I tend... Continue Reading →

Remember?


Remember when I used to blog? Yeah, I barely remember either.... I'm watching Julie & Julia, the movie that started this whole blog off in the first place. I figured if Julie Powell could utilize her writing and cooking skills through a blog, that maybe I could try my hand at it too. At first, I wrote... Continue Reading →
