driftwood (part deux, because i’m french like that)

I don’t mind being sad. I actually kind of like it. I like feeling all the things, any emotion, mostly because for a long time, I didn’t think I had any. In college, my sister Tessa and I used to joke in a “no,…

driftwood (part 1)

As December 31, 2017 rolled around, as per usual, I claimed to be so over New Year’s Resolutions, yet still felt compelled to author a list entitled: 2018: Year of Done Better with the rationale of, they’re not so much resolutions as they are…

hallmark holiday for one, please

Auntie, T, Auntie T, do you wanna play school with me? You’re the teacher. Auntie T, let’s play yoga. Auntie T, let’s play gymnastics, be the teacher! Auntie T, let’s play tag! Auuuuntieeeee Teeeee! I’m hiiiiiiiding. Auntie T, will you do a floor puzzle…

awkward encounter, like…super awkward

When you buy a one way ticket to anywhere on the premise of working for a family business in exchange for room and board, you are taking a gamble of sorts. What if you don’t get along with the other volunteers? Or hate the…

“it’s just not that easy for me”
