I am filled with rage. I remember this feeling, all too well, from about six months after my stem cells. It hit me like a cement brick on my face — I was angry that I had lived nearly half of my life (at that time) in an obscene amount of pain. I was angry that I had t...

Blaire always loved the idea of sitting alone at a bar; sipping a cocktail or a glass of wine.  A cherry red stain on her lips, her hair sleek and shiny. Very grown up.

Reality isn’t quite as liberating as she thought it would be. Sitting alone at a bar with a thin swea...

We judge the world based on our own experiences. My experiences in life have been filled primarily with a ton of physical pain. It’s so normalized to me that I sometimes don’t even register it, yet alone pay attention to it at all. My assumption, and how I’ve walked th...

It’s been a full year since I went on a legit date. I’m talking out to eat with a man to get to know him; or even drinks where the premise is “Yep. I like you and want to get to know you more.”

The last real date I went on was with a guy from the gym I worked at. He was...

Many people, myself included, carry their baggage around as a shield, while others carry...

Here we are, again.

Another year, another 365 days of rotation on a flying space rock, and I still am unsure of what it is all about (Alfie).

Life continues to be one crisis after another, with very little reprieve in between; And while the constant state of cortisol dum...

Unconditional love isn’t real.

That’s a bold statement, but hear me out.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people (my damn self included) say the phrase, “I love him/her/you unconditionally.”


Look, everything in life has a condition, if not several condition...

#Metoo by Beth Nintzel

“Hey kitty!”

I look around and I’m the only one on this section of a very crowded Hollywood Blvd dressed as a cat. Another “Hey Kitty!” is yelled, presumably at me, and so I turn towards the (pardon my expression) catcall and stare into the eyes of...

“What are you doing here?”

They both stood in the doorway, he on one side, she on the other. The air stale, yet, a seething palpability that connected their energies like a spiderweb you accidently stumble into-- sticky, surprising, and the feeling that something tangib...
