Writing and Exes

Writing and my ex-boyfriends have one thing in common. I have a love/hate relationship with both of them. When words find me – the feeling is almost orgasmic and nothing in the world can compare.

Thoughts That You’ll Inevitably Have as a Rookie Indoor Rock Climbing Enthusiast

Growing up little girls almost always fell into two categories: You’d have your ‘girly girls’ who loved nothing more than to play house-wife with their little kitchen set and chucky lookin babies.

Let’s face it: we’ve all been greeted by exhaustion and frustration at some point during the semester.

The Day I Jumped off a Freaking Plane

Dirty Laundry

We all have that small collection of moments that we keep deeply hidden because they aren’t deemed ‘appropriate’ by society, ranging from those wild nights with the girls or embarrassing situations that you somehow always managed to end up in as a clueless teenager.
