HAIR

Let’s Talk About Hair… For those of you who have been following me, you know that I have been proudly rocking the bald head since losing my hair earlier this year. I know I come off as completely confident with it. However, I’m sure it won’t come as a surprise to hear that it’s not... Continue Reading →

Kissing After Chemo

It feels like everyone has been pressing me to write about my experience with cancer. Pressing makes it sound bad, I guess, but it really isn’t. I mean, I am the first twenty-something I know that has gone through something like this. I wish I could say I have a new, younger, and improved version... Continue Reading →

Awakening

I think that it is so difficult to face our pasts, because doing so means we have to admit that we are no longer the same person. It is so much easier to plow forward, leaving everything behind.

I’ve got this man who loves me unconditionally, and... Continue Reading →

An open letter to those who say I’m hurting…

An open letter to those who say I’m hurting… You are right. I am hurting. I have been for a long time—longer than you will care to recall.

Life’s Funny Like That

Sometimes life you leaves you crying, because it’s not what you thought it was. Things don’t go like you thought it would. Friends aren’t what you thought they were. Family isn’t what you thought they were. Dreams aren’t what you thought they were. But then you start laughing, because… hell… you look in the mirror... Continue Reading →
