I’ve been feeling like I want to throw up all morning. My chest has felt tight too. I felt fine when I woke up. But you know what they say about being fine. I called the electric company because I still hadn’t received confirmation that they turned off the electric at the apartment we moved […]
So, if I was to write a letter to you – to all the peopleout there who feel burdened with grief, who feel less than, who are struggling to stay afloat and navigate the harsh waters of their reality, I would start with Dear Loved One.
In a perfect world it would be easy to say “this is one meal, I’m going to enjoy it,” but in the United States about two-thirds of adult Americans are considered overweight or obese and about half of adult Americans are trying to lose weight at any given time (CDC, 2018). This time of the […]
“You’ll shoot your eye out.” Not the best movie, but definitely a cult classic that I convinced JP to watch last year. “Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are things we can’t see.” The Polar Express was the first book my grandmother bought me as a child that I […]
