I’m currently watching The Hunger Games for the first time during a Sunday matinee. Going to the movies on a quiet afternoon will always be a way I disconnect, even if it’s only for a couple of hours.

I’d never read the books, but the trailer looked awesome. It had a lot of hype, and of course, received a “fresh” score from Rotten Tomatoes, which for me means, that it’s worth seeing in the theater.

It’s been almost nine years since this flick was released, so I’m not concerned about spoilers at this point, but for the sake of…

Here’s Why Should You Leave Your Toxic Work Environment.

It’s been a while (months to be exact) since I’ve had the time to sit down and write. As a content creator and creative in general, you should always set aside time to focus on your skills, hobbies, and general happiness that make you feel good and shit.

So, knowing this, why haven’t I done it? What was missing? What was taking up my 24/7’s that I couldn’t even jot down a sentence or a penis doodle?

My job.

I was “Joan of Arc” dedicated to my position at an advertising agency that absorbed every inch of my time, energy…

Growing up in Jonesboro Arkansas, the stories of Keller’s Chapel were always within earshot.

It was once recorded as the 13th most haunted Chapel in the US — but I can’t find the article I once read in high school to verify.

Actually, there isn’t a lot that you will find on this eerie, little gravesite so that’s why I’m here. ( and yes, I checked Reddit and came up empty-handed)

As you know, I’ve been obsessed with true crime, since, well, ever.

Ghost stories, hauntings, and everything in-between come along with that fascination. I’ve only visited this haunted section…

Hi. I’m medicated.

“oh, well have you tried taking a walk?”

“just lay out in the sun, you’ll feel better!”

“I get sad too! Everyone does!”

“Make sure to eat your vegetables”

“drink some coffee, it’s basically the same thing”

“you should meditate more”

While, yes, all these things are wonderful and every person should do these basic activities regularly, comments like these make me want to scream. Not that I think anyone is coming from a place of hate or negativity when they say these things — — but sometimes I just want to respond with,



You can probably guess that with my extreme social anxiety and

a Winston-like (the New Girl character obviously) awkwardness with tons of quirks that I have some pretty entertaining dating stories.


You would be correct!

My favorite, among a few others, would be when I accused my date of being a murderer and conducted a complete escape plan in 2 minutes in case things were to go south like I was seeing in my head.

Ok, let’s set this up.

This is our 2nd-ish date. He invited me to go walk his dog at a local park…

Hi. No, I’m not a writer.

Not even self-proclaimed.

I am pretty funny and have some shit worth saying so read along if you want.

I’m a 26 (almost 27 now, fuck) social media manager who really didn’t have a grip on life until about a year or two ago. Maybe I still don’t have a grip on life, eh, who knows. What I do know is that I am a completely different person than I was in my early 20’s. Another cool fact is that I actually love who I am. GASP!

I’m not going to bore you with…
