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

Maria : A Love Story With Tattoos

I have a request. I’ve been fascinated by tattoos for a long while. I’ve been drawing on my skin for years with gel pens, Crayolas, Sharpies—anything that could leave a decent mark. I’ve spent cumulative hours digging into my skin with cheap Bics and ballpoints, trying to eke out some sort of shape. My father … Continue reading

Another Music Post – Gearing up for Finals

I saw a prompt asking what song has been stuck in my head recently, and what it says to me. The first thing that comes to mind is a song my roommate showed me. She remembered that I’m a fan of Emilie Autumn, and it struck her as something I’d find interesting. Check out “Two … 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

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

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

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
