Everyday I Live in Fear

“Homo sum, humani nil a me alienum puto. I am a human being, nothing human can be alien to me.” ~ Maya Angelou Every day I live in fear for two main reasons that are separate but not mutually exclusive. I’m gay, and I’m black in America. Some homophobic person could physically attack me for being […]

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. […]

The Caterpillar

Welcome to spring semester and the new year. It’s time to look around those classrooms for cuties; elevate our careers to the next level; meet teachers; and catch up with old friends. I’m not the best at balancing all friends throughout the semester, but I’ve made the effort in the few days before classes to […]

2013, Which Way?

Every new year, every school semester, I imagine all these goals and resolutions that will come true. I’ll be in better shape. I’ll make moves career wise. I’ll be dating this great significant other. This year though, I don’t have those goals. I feel like I’m on the brink of something big I can’t quite […]

He Ran from Me
