We Are Not Shields

May 25th, 2022 Let’s give all the children guns. The people who have guns, who love guns, who make money off guns, are absolutely unwilling to do anything about guns, so the only solution I can think of is arming each and every child who has to enter a school building. If you’re thinking, “That’sContinue reading “We Are Not Shields”

Second Act

April 13th, 2022 I did the math. If I live as long as my mom did, I already hit middle age at 29. I think about hills. What it’s like to get to the top of one and then roll, fantastically, without fear, down the other side. It’s what I should be doing. Hands upContinue reading “Second Act”

Kicked To Death By Rabbits

April 4th, 2022 A few years ago I did an escape room on my birthday. It was designed to look like the interior of a spaceship. I looked up photos of the room online and spent weeks getting excited for it. When we arrived and my group finally got inside, the room was tiny. IContinue reading “Kicked To Death By Rabbits”

Potholes

March 29th, 2022 This fucking pothole. Normally I would ask you to excuse my language, but then again, you don’t know this pothole. You can’t see it? I can still feel it. Week after week, I would fearfully drive past this very spot; here lived the deepest, most gnarly pothole I had ever set myContinue reading “Potholes”

[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace

March 24th, 2022 I freaking love Star Wars. Always have. There is, to me, no such thing as bad Star Wars. I’m not of the original generation of fans (because they are old and I so clearly am not), so it always existed in a peripheral way to me until the Special Editions were releasedContinue reading “[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace”

So Long, Farewell

March 21st, 2022 I’m probably just in a mood, or maybe the algorithm is joyously targeting me, but I just keep thinking about good byes. Sure, there are the big ones that social media seems keen to keep reminding me of, like I don’t think about my big good bye too often already. But it’sContinue reading “So Long, Farewell”

Black Like Gold

March 16th, 2022 I’ve been trying to talk this idea out for a while now, but I should just try to write it down. Because I am an absolute idiot when I talk, and I am slightly less an idiot when I do not. So very slightly. There’s this oft-repeated warning about good people; it’sContinue reading “Black Like Gold”

Everything Just Is

February 25th, 2022 There are bitter things in this world that we’d like to think have lost their taste. We are humans, look at how far we’ve come, a society that believes that we are post-what-we-used-to-be. See how we have evolved and that history has been written, the future not a reflection but a brandContinue reading “Everything Just Is”

The Song That Never Ends

February 14th, 2022 I feel like today is a good day to talk about vulnerability. Because I feel like every day is a good day to talk about vulnerability. I can’t even count the amount of people who have been reading my posts all these years and then ask me some variation of: “When isContinue reading “The Song That Never Ends”
