I spent years and years as one of those people that felt like she was too good for swiping. I’d hear my friends tell me horror stories about online dating. Things that would keep me up at night, horror.

I constantly told myself that meeting a man in person would…


Am I scared? Yup, terrified.

I talk a lot about sex on this platform and why I love it and crave it. So it may be surprising to know that I have not had it in 12 months. Yes, I’ve been counting.

This last year has been one for the books. Well, I guess it’s…


Is co-living the new “thing”?

In about a month, I will be venturing out and moving in search of a more stable income and a chance to return to school. I will also be sleeping top bunk to another twenty-something that needs cheap housing.

Growing up, I always felt comfortable in my body. I ate enormous amounts and didn’t “watch” what I ate because I played soccer three times a week. I was muscular and fit. I always went back for seconds when dinner was served. …

I lost my cousin. It was tragic and horrific. I don’t wish this upon anyone, not even my boldest enemy. He was only 25.

This last year has been a catastrophe in the illicit drug market. The increase in opiate deaths has massively increased. The rates of suicides and overdoses…


My horrific entrance into womanhood and how it’s evolved

I was curled up on the floor, sobbing. But also intermittently running to the bathroom to catch what was coming out of both ends of my teenage body. Crying made me feel better. It probably had something to do with the chemicals that are released during my tortuous moments. …


The black hole that lives in my tummy

The other day, my best friend came over and what I thought would be a casual night frolicking about under the stars — turned into a deep evaluation of us.
