Masculinity, The Bachelor, and a Few Golics

Okay, boys. We need to talk. The four scariest words a woman can possibly utter in your direction. But it’s time. It’s time for a chat. We’re living in a weirdass time right now. Politically, socially—shit is upside down. Our pussy-grabbing president is being accused of having a sleepover with Russia. Women have been marching… Continue reading Masculinity, The Bachelor, and a Few Golics

Pain and Monopoly

So, I struggle with depression. Sometimes I’m fine. Great, really. One might even go so far as to say “happy.” But other times I’m not—I’m not fine, I’m not great, I’m not happy.

Thank you, Mr. Trump

In middle school, we had this absolutely brilliant history and religion teacher. I mean, she was the bee’s fricken knees. You’d sit in her class and actually, like, listen.

Today, I shan’t lament the goings on of what can truly only be described as the most agonizing three months of my markedly-shortened life.

Life in the Hood Vs. Life in the ‘Gram

Back in the day, me and the homeboys (neighbor children from our cul-de-sac) would regularly mount our hogs (10-speed bikes) and head out on the open road. Most days were your average 9-5. A ride through the hood, rinse and repeat. But once in a while, business—well, business got a little complicated. Some days it… Continue reading Life in the Hood Vs. Life in the ‘Gram
