My. Winter. Insomnia.

I don’t know if it’s the weather, but I find that I’m sleepy all day and then can’t stay asleep at night. I go to bed at 9pm, wake up anywhere between two and three in the morning, and then can’t go back to sleep. I end up on my phone playing the latest Wordle... Continue Reading →

It’s. Ok. To. Not. Be. Ok.

Lately I’ve been feeling inspired to try out different recipes. I like cooking my own food because it makes me feel in control of my own nutrition. It’s much easier to just order take out and be done with it, but I like the feeling of accomplishment. I like inviting people over and having them... Continue Reading →

I went through a series of emotions. Anger. Frustration. Sadness. Fear. Absolute terror. How could this be? What the hell is... Continue Reading →

Para. Los. Padres.

I was four years old when my parents split up. I don’t remember crying about it or being terribly sad, but I do remember that life changed a little bit and I would only see my dad every once in a while. Over the course of the next few years, I had a recurring dream... Continue Reading →

Words are free. Pick the best ones.

Whoever said “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” may have been a little out of touch. Words can absolutely hurt. They can heal. They can empower. They can make or break relationships. It’s why the phrases “think before speaking” and “choose your words wisely” came into existence.  Yesterday... Continue Reading →
