I still cling to this idea that when I meet you, I won’t be able to scare you off. I won’t be too much. I won’t talk too much, or say the wrong thing. You won’t grow tired of me after too much time together too soon. And I won’t have to convince you ofContinue reading “A glimpse of you.”

The first time around, I was struck by his beauty. He was sleek, fashionable, and just a touch dark and edgy. He was full of personality, but at times overdid it. He had his moments where he made me so proud, but I never trusted him 100%. There were countless times he embarrassed me, increasingly so towardsContinue reading “Puppy love.”
It’s a strange phenomenon I’ve been experiencing lately. I often find myself looking back on my younger self, And I smile. At her naïveté. At her willingness to fall in love with strangers. At her drunken bathroom best friendships. At the way she danced the night away. At the way she allowed herself to beContinue reading “Here now.”
I don’t really know what’s next. I have a lot of different ideas. All of them a little out there. All of them scary. But all of them are also way more exciting than anything I have going on currently, and I think that’s worth the risk.

Plans we’d talked about allContinue reading “Just another night.”

I want that “i can’t wait to see you” | “me either” kind of love. I want the kind of love you never get tired of. I want the kind of love that doesn’t tremble. I want the kind of love that you never question. I want the kind of love that makes everything else aContinue reading “Kind of love.”
Once upon a 500sq foot apartment I shared with my ex-boyfriend.
I loved this teeny tiny highly functional apartment that happened to be the first spaced I shared with a boyfriend. I was always impressed with our ability to collectively build and live in such a tiny space without it ever really feeling too small. Located in the West Highlands neighborhood in Denver, CO, circa 2013.Continue reading “Once upon a 500sq foot apartment I shared with my ex-boyfriend.”
Not for lack of trying.
I have been trying so hard. Trying to accept my circumstances. Trying to be grateful. Trying to stay positive. Trying to imagine a new life that excites me.
