Spinning Like a Top

Welp, today officially wrapped up my last official day working at the legal clinic…for the next three weeks (LOL). I’ll be back, but I know when I return for my fall classes it’ll be to a much lesser degree and not the 10-12 hour hustle days I was pulling in. It’s weird-no classes, not really […]

Gasping for Air

You know those days when you’re literally gasping for air? Today I felt like I just couldn’t catch a break, from the moment I woke up until the late evening as I was wrapping things up for bed. The morning started with a literal “oh shit, fuck, fuck, fuck” as I had forgot it was […]

Bugger Off, Mate

Out of the blue, as Pandora’s blasting some country tunes and I’m knee-deep cleaning a much-neglected pile of clothes from recent travels, I get a text from literally the last person on earth I’d want to hear from. While part of me was like “wow, he texted me,” the 99% left of my being was […]
