In a month I turn 26 (cue mid 20s existential crisis). I'll be closer to 30 than 20 and if that's not enough to make me feel old I don't know what is. Lucky for me, I like getting older. I like growing and learning and evolving into the best possible version of myself. I… Continue reading 25 Lessons I’ve Learned so Far
For those of you who are new here- I struggle with anxiety and depression (although it's way better than it used to be/ I manage it better now). But, In the past year I've leaned on alcohol quite a bit to numb anxious feelings and quiet my busy mind. What started as a glass of… Continue reading What Happened When I Stopped Drinking Every Night?
I don't remember when it started. And by it, I mean that 5 o'clock glass (or 3) of wine to "decompress" after work. I don't remember the last time I didn't have a bottle of wine in the house.

This can… Continue reading Things You Probably Don’t Know About Lesbians Trying to Have Babies
I remember it vividly. I think I was in the first or second grade. We were asked to dress up as the profession we wanted when we grew up. I, without hesitation, began planning my costume in my head. An artist. It was simple. I wanted to paint, and make art in whatever way possible.… Continue reading What do You Want to be When You Grow up? At 25 I still have no idea.

First off- I'd like to start this post by saying I love my wife VERY much. I remember when we first started dating I was blown away by her ability to open her mouth and project sounds that didn't resemble a dying animal (Note: I really cannot sing). I was even more impressed when she… Continue reading Being The Wife of A Musician: The Things No One Tells You
I've been wanting to write this for a while but wasn't sure where to start. My first book, Waves, took years to write. It was a bundle of poetry and prose written over the span of 7 years. It was a representation of personal torment and growth. Honestly, it came easily. It was burning inside… Continue reading Why I Stopped Writing my Second Book
It's no secret many of us lose sleep due to stress & anxiety. When our parents checked for monsters under our beds, I wonder if they were thinking to themselves "silly kid, they're inside your head."
