A List of Goals

Learn to longboard. Get in shape. Or at least become reasonably coordinated enough not to kill myself. Read more books. Actually review them on time over at Literatease. Figure out what I want to get tattooed on my body, no take backs. Stop being a wuss and actually get it done. Draw more. Doodle. Sketch. … 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

When I Grow Up, I Want to be Happy

Do I know where I’m going? That’s the question. Everyone’s been asking it. The answer is something like, “Well, not at all.” And it’s not uncommon. We’re supposed to know these things by senior year, but we don’t. We’re still so stuck on ‘What’s My Major’ that half of us still haven’t even figured out … Continue reading

Festivalpalooza

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

Crying Games

Lining Up

“…you know that a good, long session of weeping can often make you feel better, even if your circumstances have not changed one bit.” – Lemony Snicket, The Bad Beginning I don’t even know how the conversation started, but suddenly we were talking about crying. It might have been about our fathers–we’ve both lost them, … Continue reading

Sour-Mouth Maintenance

“So, I heard she had a religious experience.” “…Again?” You wouldn’t believe the things you can hear—or worse, the things you’ll catch yourself saying. Examine any number of little gems—little silver casings rolling off of your tongue. Really think about what you’re saying. It’s a new effort for me. Linguistically and intentionally, I wonder, When … Continue reading

I’m Taking the Fire Escape Up to the Roof

As much fun as I had reading Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day as a kid, it’s not always enough to just point to Judith Viorst and say, “That! My life is that, but with more x and y and screaming and less dorky shoes and lima beans and talk of … Continue reading

Today, I Am a Lemon

Getting a little bolder here, I suppose. Today is our Big/Little party for APO, and the pledges have selected a ‘Spring’ theme. Which means pastel colors and an easter egg hunt. Unfortunately, I don’t really own anything pastel. (As far as I can understand, it means ‘that awkward, muted color palette unique to nurseries and … Continue reading

To All the History

Upon realizing that my paranoia about sounding a little bit like a self-help book instead of a human being was not entirely unfounded, I thought I might try to share a little bit more about personal things. It’s not really opening up if I don’t share the me that I am right now. Anyway, you … Continue reading
