Be. More. Invested.

On the brink of graduation and truly for the last year I’ve noticed a lack of investment in people when it comes to our platonic relationships and potential romances. I’m not naïve or lacking the idea that all types of relationships are two-way. Too often people want you to meet them three-quarters down the road. […]

Cheers to A New Story

Cheers. Cheers to the late nights dancing to the beat and offbeat with friends. Cheers to the tears shared with friends over moments we’ve grown from. Cheers to the dates we smile about and the ones we remember with dread. Cheers to the moments we wanted to quit and the successes we didn’t imagine possible. […]

Flirty Friday 12/27/13

“Flirty Friday” – Friday dating and relationship inspiration as you head into the weekend.  Say goodbye, because crushes are fleeting, and a crush is defined as an intense but short-lived infatuation. Say goodbye, because you’re surrendering. And surrendering is not your head down to the earth, but head and arms raised to the skies of […]

Background Music

I remember a few years ago I was in California and while wandering Palm Springs I went into this random shop. This guy told me my master astrology reading. He said in 2013 or 2014 I would meet the love of my life and in 2017 I would start my own business. I don’t know […]

Three Years! My Coming Out Anniversary

This month I’ve reached my three year anniversary of being out of the closet as gay and three years feels like a truly special place personally. For the past few months the thought often toyed around my mind of how I’ve never talked to my maternal grandmother about being gay, even though I’ve had conversations with […]

Simply Try

How scary and exciting this feels! To travel back to the place that four years ago represented another set of ideals and hopes. How amazing life is in that we never know where our journey will take us just a few years later. The people we will meet and the experiences that will change us. […]

Against the Dichotomy

It’s hard to keep it all together. It’s in the times things are going well but most trying from all angles that the world pushes us for more. The things going well make you want to bask in the beauty of the fall weather, while you feel the ground pulling down into the dying leaves. […]

What Is a Connection?

I walked to my scooter and contemplated – when feels like the right moment to go after someone romantically. I saw these two guys exchange numbers towards the end of our Pride Student Union open house after talking back and forth throughout the event. I thought about my crush. or as I like to say, […]

Searching Through Taxis

When I’m wearing leather Forever 21 shorts with rainbow suspenders, searching for and through taxis with older white male drivers with mustaches, I’m annoyed and wondering how did I end up at this point. One of my good friends invited a couple friends in town for her birthday party I hosted, and one of these […]

Bold Outside. Bold Insight.

After an almost one month summer hiatus, I will return to my normal schedule of sporadic but methodic blogging August 21. Sometimes you have to rejuvenate yourself, gain insight and take a peak into the next chapter before you begin in it. What’s ahead? There will be lots of exciting posts discussing a first date, […]
