First Rains

March 5, 2018


2018 has been spectacular for me– opening up to a new romance has been so many things. I’ve been dating my special person for over 8 weeks now.   I have not spoken about it with many people. Usually, I talk people’s ears off when I  first start dating someone new. I want to talk […]

You’re good enough when you say you’re good enough – #ColorsRNotShame

October 17, 2017


You’re good enough only when you believe you’re good enough. Let that thought sink in. Relying on outsiders for validation is a dangerous thing. Yet, that is exactly how society functions.

Top Five Ways To Get Shutdown

May 24, 2012


Who doesn’t love to hear about a good shutdown?! I realize its narcissistic to have a laugh at other people’s rejection stories but Sam from lip service’s rejection of the woman she’d picked up from a bar and fucked and then kicked out right after came up in conversation with a friend so I decided […]

Rain + Shagging

April 29, 2012


I’m now convinced rainy weather was made for Shagging but of course this is amongst a host of other important reasons. When I was a kid and it rained those thundery showers in the Motherland, you were advised to stay put if you didn’t have somewhere urgent to be.  I thought it was the perfect time […]
