Cheers to Being a Quitter


I am quitting my job. It’s happening. This is for real. I’ve been joking, dreaming, pining, wishing, hoping and crying about it for a while now, but the moment has…


Silence or instrumentals — same stuff as when I read. Tempo and volume will vary but almost never anything with words. Weirdly enough unless I’m divinely inspired (which happens all of never) I usually have to try to clear my mind before I start or else it feels like I’m writing drivel. No thinking, just writing.


The Love of a Great Woman

Writers, poets, painters, and artists have spent lifetimes trying to get the words or image just right. But time and time again they have come up short. I won’t flatter myself by implying I’ll be able to accomplish anything different but I’d be remiss not to try.

10 People You Will Find at Any Bar

  1. Awkward First Date — You can spot these two from a mile away. They met on PlentyOf-OK-Mat-inder. And at least one of them looks nothing like their photos. The awkwardness is palpable. Just looking at them can make you feel like you don’t know what to do with your own hands. They are drinking to fill the silences between “so…do you have any siblings?” and…

I love reading. 2014's goal was 40 books and I should hit that with…


26 Pieces of Unqualified Advice on My 26th Birthday


  1. Friends are worth their weight in gold. Maybe even more for those skinny bitches.
    I cannot sing the praises of my friends any louder or more obnoxiously. Seriously, they are nothing short of beautiful, majestic miracles sent by the universe to make sure I don’t fall apart at the seams or end up in jail on a regular basis. When you find…

A Man’s Guide to Menstruation.


Listen up, fellas. It’s time you get the low down on what you likely find to be the single most disturbing thing about the fairer sex: periods. Roughly every 28 days our uteri try to secede from the union that is our body. Always successful and never without causalities, when you do the math…
