A Pain In the Ass

To the people that say life isn’t fair, it isn’t. In fact, I think that sometimes the shittiest people-the ones without morals and ethics who do bad things to good people-sometimes get the most breaks and encounter the fewest difficulties.  While I realize we each fight our own battles on a daily basis, some of…

Pussy Politics

With each passing day, I’m trying to be a little bolder in my choices and to do them without worrying what other people might think. I used to be really self-conscious of parking in handicapped spots with my placard, because I’d get weird stares or under the breath comments that I didn’t look disabled. Then…

After several weeks of ADA related stressors at law school, I finally had an…

I get notes for many of my classes, because when I’m knee-deep in vomit and diarrhea, I can’t be attentively taking notes in class. Sorry,…

Cyclical Friendship

Today I came to the realization, well, actually a re-realization that friendships ebb and flow like many other things in nature. This jaunt started with planning celebrations for my 25th birthday in a few weeks, and someone who I thought was a really good friend came up with a gaggle of excuses that she couldn’t…
