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

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

A Little Bit of Fashion

There’s got to be some form of crack in cosmetics, I swear. For some reason, as soon as I put on a coat of nail polish, my hands go from prick-and-punctured worrying things into these graceful swan-like entities attached to my wrists. It gets worse with rings—and I love rings. My fingers are a little … Continue reading

First Week

Lately, I finally found out about the proper way to go about finger-knitting from FlaxandTwine, a wonderful creative blog. My mother learned with me, but I’ve gone a little bit bonkers since. I’ve cut up a few outgrown t-shirts that were originally headed for the thrift store and came up with this lovely bundle of … 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

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

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

5% Car Trouble by Volume – (And Not as Much Walking as I Thought.)

Let me start out by saying that I love and adore ‘Happy Accidents’. Buuuuut… Why does no one ever bother to put a disclaimer on certain days? Give me a heads up when I need to put on my Responsible Adult panties and figure out how to speak car problemese? The plan started out functional. … Continue reading
