memories of my youth

I try to shop local, I really do. This is mostly because I used to work at a local, independent store in Los Angeles a few years ago that despite being around since the 1990′s, had to sadly close. Working in retail comes with its own set of challenges, some of which I wrote about […]

I Speak Simpsons

The Simpsons just began its 25th season and I haven’t seen a new episode in about 10 years. But I still speak the language.

Fat.

This was taken around ’07 or ’08 before I dyed my hair dark. I remember when this was taken. I hated my body and thought I was fat, so instead of wearing a bikini and getting in the pool, I’m wearing track pants and posing goofily with a pool net. Being silly was my default. […]

DO-OVER.

I have no regrets. Sometimes I need to constantly remind myself of this, because it’s easily to slip into that terrifying moment of, “Oh shit, I’ve ruined my entire life with that one decision.” And that’s ridiculous and I know that. I need to feel good about my decisions, and if I made one I didn’t like, […]
