A few years ago, prior to graduating from university, I was talking about my desire to live and teach abroad. A person sitting within the group stated, “You’re leaving us?!” I stared blankly at this person I barely knew. This person (who I had hung out with maybe three...

At some point during my childhood, my uncle gave my mother two, soft (probably cherry) wood, Ethan Allen television tray tables. She kept them looking nice by placing cloth runners over the top. On cleaning days, I would always offer to spray the furniture polish and w...

About a month ago, someone half jokingly said to me, “You know, you really are an asshole.” Because I was already (literally) walking away from this person, my response to the comment was to simply continue walking away. I can only assume the comment fell out of their...

I’ve never been the type of person to shy away from being vocal regarding important realizations. For instance, if you’ve become one of my favorite people, I'll tell you. If I think you’re being a tool, guess what, I'll tell you.

After typing the title, I thought to myself, where does that phrase even come from? Why do I use a phrase in which I have no origin reference? I understand it means to leave somewhere in a hurry, but why?

My transition back home; we’ll call it bumpy. It’s so weird to me how everything can be the same yet so different. 

Friends: Same

Their schedules: Different

Traffic intersection change from four-way stop to roundabout: Different

Vast amounts of people who STILL don’t know...

I adore ice cream. It’s obviously not something I eat often but I sincerely enjoy when I do eat it. I have a habit of buying vegan ice cream and leaving it in my friend’s freezers as a treat while hanging out. Never keeping it in my own freezer prevents me from eating...
