The best advice I’ve ever gotten is to write on a regular schedule. This is my attempt to produce a new piece every week.
This past week, I decided that it was finally time to revisit my NaNoWriMo project. I was feeling excited about the idea, and ready to do some editing with fresh eyes- and then I opened the word document, and immediately got smacked in the face by my old nemesis Writer’s Block. So I did a … Continue reading “Variations On The Theme Of Writer’s Block”
I’ve never been the kind of person to commit to a religion. In middle school, I thought I might become a Catholic nun because it looked a lot less scary than trying to figure out how sex worked. I don’t actually remember why I changed my mind, but I bet it had something to do … Continue reading “What A Friend We Have In Satan, As It Turns Out”
Do you remember that “Three Fictional Characters Challenge” that was popular on Facebook a few years ago? The point was to post a photoset of the three fictional characters you think are the best representation of yourself. At the time, the three characters that I picked were Hermione Granger, Leslie Knope, and Wednesday Addams. Very … Continue reading “It’s Black History Month And I’m Back On My Bullshit, Y’all”
The past year has been a real doozy, right? And I’m not just talking about the pandemic, or the civil unrest, or the beloved celebrities dying, or the fucking election. Apart from all the crazy shit we went through collectively, I’m pretty sure that everyone individually had a hellish year in some form or another. … Continue reading “Maybe You’re Mentally Ill, Or Maybe You’re Depressed Because Everything Is Terrible”
The bar is so low for President Biden. So. Low. All he has to do is not lead a riotous mob in storming the capitol, or get himself impeached twice, or allow 400,000 American citizens to die of a largely preventable pandemic in less than a year, or tweet out insane ramblings in the middle … Continue reading “Joe Biden Has No Excuse Not To Be The Best Goddamn President We’ve Ever Had”
A few nights ago, in the middle of watching a four-part docuseries about the Night Stalker, my husband asked me what the deal is with women and true crime. I’ve been thinking it over ever since. I mean, we all know that women are obsessed with true crime television shows (and podcasts and books and … Continue reading “If We’re *All* Obsessed With True Crime, Then It’s Totally Not Weird, Right?”
Deep down, in spite of everything, I guess I really do love America. Or at least, I love the idea of America. The land of the free, home of the brave, truth, justice, and the American Way- you know, the whole bit. I still want to believe that’s the real core of our nation, no … Continue reading “The American Experiment Was Nice While It Lasted”
I’ve spent the last few days hemming and hawing about whether or not I want to make a New Year’s Resolution. On the one hand, I’m the sort of person that won’t get a goddamn thing done, ever, if I’m expected to self-motivate. An arbitrary deadline is literally the only thing that gets any results … Continue reading “New Year, Same Bullshit (But In A Shiny New Package)”
Every few months, I seriously consider deleting all my social media. I picture it like the closing scene of a classic Western: a cowboy dropping his six-shooter into the dirt and sauntering unburdened into the sunset, his dueling days behind him and a world of fresh possibilities ahead. Just think of it. To live a … Continue reading “But If You Take The Blue Pill, You Still Get To Look At Memes”
This year, I finally gave in and admitted that a girl cannot subsist on Billy Joel alone. So I’ve spent the last few weeks scoping out some new music, and along the way I uncovered a vibe too groovy not to share. Do you have a moment to hear the gospel of Dreampop Surf Vibes? … Continue reading “Move Over, Spotify; I Discovered My Own New Music Genre”
