Bold Touches: Brunch

Sunday brunch is one of my favorite activities to catch up with friends over, especially as a twenty-something. One of my friends interned in NYC this summer, so we decided to catch up over brunch at her home with her roommate. I wanted to soak in all things big city from her, even though my […]

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 […]

Reoccurring Characters

I turned around, and there he was. I pushed a, “Hey,” out of my mouth. She Facebook messaged me to call her, and I couldn’t remember the last time we talked. I stood in the host’s kitchen and coming down the stairs I saw him – a blast from the past. Like a book series […]

I remember walking back upstairs to my room after my mom dropped me off at college. She cried all the way here and as she started to drive off. I remember feeling like we were driving into an unknown. As I walked back into my room and sat down, I thought to myself: This is […]

A Day of Coming Out – My Love Letter

Today is National Coming Out Day and I am on the Pride Student Union Executive Board at FSU. It’s been hectic lately with editing videos, the week of events and with working on media on covering our Rainbow Door and March across campus. First, I have to say so much love today from a personal […]

Risk

I want people to reflect back on me one day and think that among other things, I was someone willing to take risks – especially with friendships and dating. That even if I didn’t really know someone, but had the slightest interest in them, I put myself out there. I’ve learned, so what we aren’t […]

Finding Roots – A Sweet Two Years

Today is the second anniversary of writing Finding Roots! When I started this blog, I didn’t know what to expect, or who would really read it. It turned into a vulnerable, beautiful process allowing me to be connect with others, find myself and be honest. Below are the top five posts of my blog that helped bring me […]
