TRIGGER WARNING:  sexual assault, rape.       Hey gorgeous, can I take you out to lunch? Damn those legs.  My headphones suddenly becomes a mental shield.

Why don’t you want me?

Are you going to talk me afterwards if we have sex? I felt his breath on my neck, his naked skin against mine. Of course, I just can't stay the night.  That answer was good enough for me, even thought it really wasn't. The door shuts behind him after he leaves my dorm. I wait … Continue reading Why don’t you want me?

I have a chewed piece of gum on my desk.

The past few months I've received a lot of emails, Insta DMs and in-person Qs about my blog. I've sorta ~blogged about it~ before, but that was, like, almost a year ago. So, here's a refresher. Some of the Qs I've been asked are as follows: Why and when did you start it? How can I start … Continue reading I have a chewed piece of gum on my desk.

Inspiring female artists to add to your playlist.

To call myself an "artist" would be a massive stretch. Creative? Yes. Artist? Ehh. If you count off-pitch sing-in-the-shower sessions and my innate ability to doodle the f*ck out of a new notebook, then, yes, maybe I am an artist. I can't sing. I simply can't. I want a phenomenal voice, like really bad. But, … Continue reading Inspiring female artists to add to your playlist.

Mediocrity.

I didn't mean to get super personal, but I couldn't help it. "What's your biggest fear in life?" I hadn't prepped for this one. I had four pages of a Google Doc typed out, with every possible question I could attempt to predict. Tell me about yourself. Why should we choose you? What's the biggest challenge … Continue reading Mediocrity.

VLOG: Should you blog? Yes. Should I vlog? Idk, but here I am.

I never imagined myself to be a vlogger. It's like the super kewl and trendy thing to do nowadays, but man, being able to talk through a QWERTY keyboard is much easier than talking to Photo Booth alone in my apartment with Stella. For me, at least. So, when I asked myself if I should … Continue reading VLOG: Should you blog? Yes. Should I vlog? Idk, but here I am.

12 anti-Trump things to do today if you just tryna chill~

"What are your Inauguration plans?" Living in DC, the new home of our president-elect, this question is harder to avoid than most things. I have been trying to come to terms with this election ever since Trump unexpectedly became relevant in the midst of it all. For a while, his campaign felt like a trainwreck … Continue reading 12 anti-Trump things to do today if you just tryna chill~

Walking to work.

I was wearing a loose black dress from Urban. I paired it with black combat boots and gold bangles. I had been a slob all day, so I figured I'd throw something cute on to run some errands before work. I stepped on the elevator, a man stood next to me and stared at my … Continue reading Walking to work.

Here’s what I want my funeral to look like

  Inspired by Mindy Kaling's book-because she's just the sh*t. Death. A morbid subject, yet inevitable to all. I have been to countless wakes and funeral in my lifetime, sadly. Distant cousins, grandmothers, an uncle to a friend of a friend who my dad knew on the board of directors for our youth basketball league. I mourned … Continue reading Here’s what I want my funeral to look like

This is why I blog

  When I started blogging as a sophomore in college, it was merely a fun side hobby. I wrote short posts, never diving into anything too personal. I didn't want to make my journal public--not because I didn't believe in my writing, but because vulnerability is scary as hell. Putting myself out there only to … Continue reading This is why I blog
