Even as a writer, there are times when I struggle to use my voice. Mostly, I'm hesitant because I don't want to be confused for someone who's speaking about an experience that is not my own: Blackness, oppression, grave injustice and inequality. Sure, I am a gay woman,...

On Sanity

The National Guard was just deployed to New York, California, and Washington, the states most heavily affected by Coronavirus. Healthcare workers are being told to reuse masks. There’s speculation that NYC hotels will be turned into pop-up hospitals. The numbe...

I was recently told, “If you continue to keep toxic people in your life, it says more about you than it does about them.” I’ve been reflecting on this quote for weeks now. If I keep toxic, negative people in my life, it says a tremendous amount about me, but what speci...

I’m not sure which component of our current climate status I find most depressing. Perhaps the “couture-ization” of being environmentally conscious; a fad that is more consumer-based than it is helpful. For many, if we are incapable of wearing it on a tote-bag, it is e...

This post (or any post in general) is overdue. I'm not going to make it long, either. Or I might, and if I start to spiral into an elongated, semi-angry, yet still hopefully articulate tirade about my views on the current state of the union, I apologize....

I've had a lot of conversations recently surrounding the past and whether or not it's escapable. Do we truly learn from our mistakes? Or do we keep repeating them with different backdrops? I don't really have an answer. More so, I'm curious of how in control we are of...

I often have a hard time admitting that I struggle with my mental health. Not just because I have difficulties admitting struggle, but rather I have difficulties allowing myself to struggle. What I mean is, I'm huge on, "Yeah this sucks, but others are having...

Last week, I went to a wake for a friend of mine from high school. I cannot fully explain what happens to the psyche when you see your 23-year-old friend in a casket. It is horrible, sad, disheartening, devastating, and yet humbling. You feel your feet on the ground a...

Ladies, we've all been there. Two feet up in metal stirrups, some strange body-sized, one-ply napkin around you, and your gyno prying around where you'd really rather she wouldn't unless she, at the very least, got you a drink first. Perhaps my experience is unique fol...
