Moving on

Moving on

I can still remember my first apartment like it was yesterday.  A cute one bedroom, two blocks from the beach, close to restaurants and bars and all of the essentials. My rent was next to nothing compared to these days.  Having my first apartment, meant independence, I could do anything I damn well pleased! I [...]

An Interview

An Interview

We've all done them, interviews, I seriously doubt any of us really enjoy the process. I can hold my own for the most part, it's when they start asking questions, like, "tell me about a time you overcame an obstacle?" or "what's your biggest weakness?" and "why should we hire you?" Ha!  I become a [...]

48 HOURS

48 HOURS

My ride to the airport arrived at my home in the early morning, it was both strangely familiar and surreal. As he rushed to toss my bags into the trunk, he informed me “I was listening to the news, but I turned on the music just for you” this made me laugh. Our banter picked up where [...]

Let's face [...]

Wading in the deep end

Wading in the deep end

I found him...or, maybe he found me, the universe works in mysterious ways...actually, it was a mutual friend who decided to play matchmaker. With an 8 hour first date and a 4-hour second date, most would consider this a successful beginning, right? Me being me, I couldn't help over think this, what?! Yes, it's mind-boggling to [...]

L.$.D.

L.$.D.

Love, Sex, Dreams...do I have your attention? Thanks to A$AP Rocky, I'm obsessed with this song, finding myself googling the lyrics and hitting the play button, again and again. "know I dream about her all day I think about her with her clothes off"  A$AP Rocky is rapping about a woman whom he has evident feelings [...]
