I Don’t Call Because I’m Lonely

I am lonely. Or very close to it. So I never call to hang out. I believe it was Rupi Kaur who said “Loneliness means you are in desperate need of yourself” and holy shit is that ever true.

Artist Dissociation

As an artist, I’m not all that excited about the things I make after I have made them. It’s not that I’m not proud, or that I don’t care. It’s more that, once it is out in the world it no longer belongs to me. An idea is like a baby, it needs attention and […]

The “NOW” Diet

Originally posted on Quaintrelle:
Sat nam…mtherlvrs… Why my restricted diet didn’t work: I grew up in a controlling home; Mum and Dad were eastern Europeans and followed the mantra of “finish what’s on your plate before you can leave the table”. Food was served to me, and I rebelled growing up by ordering chicken fingers…

High Expectations vs Negative Expectations

We have them for ourselves, people who love us the most have them for us, and even people who seem to have only the most basic interest or understanding of us do too. They seem well-intentioned, say that they see all the potential we have, but realistically it […]

Trying To Be Good

Trying to be honest about yourself in a public way is very challenging. For me, it’s not about the introspection. It’s more about getting over how people are going to react once the story changes. Self-improvement, self-understanding, self-anything is not set in stone. There are days I write from the highest point of my experiences; […]
