Today is International Woman’s Day so I decided to take it back to middle school English class and write a little something about my female hero. Of course, there are lots of female heroes I could write about, but why write about a stranger when my whole life I had a female hero right beside […]Read more "My Female Hero"
Hello Friend! Since we just passed a holiday all about love, I thought I would take this time to reach out and apologize for being such a shitty friend, since I love you so much. I’m sorry that I never remember to text you back and that I haven’t made plans to hang out for […]Read more "An Apology Letter for Being a Sh*t Friend"

I wake up, pack my lunch, go to work, eat my lunch, finish work, go to the gym, make dinner, and sleep. On the weekends, I do […]Read more "New Years Resolution: Fall Back in Love"
I’m a fledgling adult. I’m only about 30% complete with my human-ing. This life stage means that I’ve been able to master a few important life skills, but for the most part, I’m still a clueless idiot. Since I started my adult-ing five years ago, there have been a lot of things I’ve been improving to make myself […]Read more "Things I’ve Gotten Better at With Age, but Still Mostly Suck At"

I am half a step away from being in the most privileged group in America. I am upper-middle class, I live in the wealthiest county in the state of Wisconsin, […]Read more "Let’s Talk About Privilege"
