Alone in a New City

It’s not per say being alone in a new city that makes you feel alone. It’s the feeling you left a life behind that was yours. I spend a lot of time outside of work catching up with friends on their latest happenings, updating friends and answering the question, how is Atlanta? For the first […]

Laugh, Cry & Look Ahead

Four years in Tallahassee and three years at the Zimmerman Agency came to a close last week. Another chapter for friendships and new adventures await! Last week was filled with many laughs and lots of tears. I had many ugly cries while hugging friends and standing from a whole department. I feel grateful and blessed […]

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. […]

Fuck Yes or No

A friend shared with me this great article by Mark Manson , but if you allow it, this article extends beyond sexuality and even dating but to friendships and work.  I aim to stick to original content, but found this truly inspiring with great points. More vulgar than usual posts, but let’s all say, “Fuck […]

A Return to. . .

Today marks the beginning of the second half of the year and what strikes the beginning of my senior year. I walk forward into the last round of college and think back on junior year. Within this last year, I changed my job and transitioned once again while at the same company. I served on […]

The Nerves Set In

Working at a company for two years now, it’s easy to forget lessons I’ve learned throughout college. Lessons that keep me bold and ambitious. This summer I have new opportunities and projects to work on. Excitement fills me; I want to skip down the hall as I head back to my computer. When I sit […]

U-Turn

This week I turned down the opportunity to intern remotely with a start-up after initially accepting. The opportunity seemed exciting. It’d be fresh, a chance to expand my skills and challenge myself by working across multiple time zones. But I turned it down. As summer approaches, my friends and I sit together contemplating opportunities. What’s […]

Know What You Want And Why

I sat at the FSU Inaugural Gala for the next Student Government administration as the Vice President, Kathryn Porwoll, gave her outgoing speech. I searched my pockets quickly for a pen, because I knew the next few words coming out of her mouth would apply to me, along with the others in the ballroom. “Know what […]
