People Need Other People

So, May was Mental Health Awareness Month. And, boy, was I aware. It’s June now (thanks for the update, Morg), and I’m finally ready to let it out. We all know I wrestle with depression, I’ve shared stories and reflections of my struggles with this little bitch, but it’s always been after the fact. After… Continue reading People Need Other People

A Letter to the Class of 2017

It’s that time of year, kids. Caps, gowns. Parents frolicking about campus. In your apartments. Where you convince them that glass contraption shaped awfully similar to a bong is just abstract art. It’s a magical time. The end of an era. It’s a celebration of academia. A celebration marking the papers you’ve written at 3am,… Continue reading A Letter to the Class of 2017

I’m 25 Now, Maybe I’ll Stay A While

I leave early. It’s just something I do. When it comes to large social events, rendezvous, and overall gatherings, I am most always late to arrive and quite often the first to leave. It’s not a grand exit or anything; in fact, it most closely resembles a sort of Irish Goodbye, if you will. I… Continue reading I’m 25 Now, Maybe I’ll Stay A While

The Beauty of Not Being in Love

Let’s just dive right into it. The Holiday Season was a glorified dodgeball tournament. Target: Me. Object of Choice: Questions. The inquiry, of course? “So, do you have a boyfriend?” “Is there a ‘someone special’ we should know about?” Go back to the pumpkin pie, kids, Mama’s got this one. No, I don’t have a… Continue reading The Beauty of Not Being in Love
