Anxiously Assertive: A Tale of Two Accidents

I still remember it like it was yesterday; it was a sweltering July afternoon, and I had just finished purchasing my weekly groceries at Lidl. I hurriedly pushed my cart to the car, anxious that my frozen food would be thawed after waiting in long lines at the checkout. I was sweaty, tired, and anxious […]

Haunted by House Flies

I sit on my green Craiglist couch, completely engrossed in the important task of watching Instagram stories when the buzzing begins.

Things I Hope Change In My Thirties

Age is of no importance unless you’re a cheese. -Billy Burke   Well, I’ve officially been in my thirties for nine days now, and I got to tell you that I feel exactly 0% different. Apparently, crossing the threshold in “old lady” territory (per my little sister) does not endow you with some sort of […]

An Introvert Walks Into A Park

Sunrise is just peaking over the edge of the trees in front of my house when I wake up in the morning to squeeze in that necessary morning workout. I sleepily lace on my sneakers, slip on a comfortable, old sports bra, and wrangle my hair into submission with a headband before heading out the […]
