Cloud Chasing

I’ve been a fan of Lewis Carrol since I was barely toddling. My father probably wasn’t pleased, but I colored in the pages of his copy of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass with too much enthusiasm for him to deliver a memorable punishment. I still have that copy, with its bluepinkgreen Hatter smear … Continue reading

Personal Undergrowth

They ask, “Do you see the forest, or the trees?” and I look up. I blink, maybe, once or twice. I try to process what it is, exactly, that I’ve been asked. I must look stupid to them, because they attempt to explain. “It’s like a metaphor—” And at that point, I just can’t let … Continue reading

Some Sass

From my birthday breakfast. 🙂 A while ago.

But What to Fry?

Good news! I’m finally starting to feel better! Of course, I’m going to credit part of that to the arrival of a last-minute post-Christmas surprise. My mother told me that something I’d been craving for a while would be late for the gift-giving season and asked if I wanted to know what it was. I … Continue reading

Well, This is Late

  So this is that post I was vomiting pretentiousness about last month.   There should be pictures…eventually.   –   On Friday, I went to class and came back to…well, I was nerding over something or other. It might have been Harvest Moon: A New Beginning. I can’t recall if I’ve had it for … Continue reading

The Bra Can See Into Your Soul

Can someone please remind me why it’s social sin for people to glimpse my bra strap or a bit of lace? I’m not saying that I don’t understand the whole ‘don’t be trashy’ thing—because I do. I know loads of trashy ladies. Sometimes we hold summits about trashiness and drink trashy drinks and moon over—what … Continue reading

The Advent of the Dinahsaurus

So I’m pretty sure it’s time for me to stop wheedling like a whiny little shit and actually start caring about my body and how I handle my diet. Which is pretty much nonexistent so far. Thus, change. I’ve been diagnosed (on top of so many other glorious problems) with the dreaded acid reflux, destroyer … Continue reading

An Open Letter to Every Math Teacher I Have Ever Had

All I want is to write and create and live inside my English brain. I don’t want to waste time being made to feel stupid and inferior over vague philosophical math. I’ve always been horrid at math. I know it. I’ve known it for years. Teachers have been telling me for years. It’s not funny. … Continue reading


This past Saturday was certainly eventful. It’s a little intimidating to hear just how many festivals are going on in Atlanta at a time–and so close together! Anyway, I started the Saturday fairly early (at least for me) when my wonderfultastic roommate, Miss Tesla, crept in my room to pry me from my mattress. We … Continue reading

Things That Are Sweet

I’ve been having a nice, relaxing time so far. I’m getting ready to head to a writing retreat in Sedona with my mother, so there’s still quite a bit of packing to do, but I thought I’d share some of the little details in the meantime. 🙂 Before I left for Fort Lauderdale, I realized … Continue reading
