poetry: sunday

Lines scribbled on a Sunday and reformed into Monday's poem for class. The Sunday sunlight in my living room is TOO GOOD in the morning. sunday bring your to-go cups and farmers market flowers. the cold wine from the sink. give remembrance to your 2am songs, your light beer cheers and the brewery dog named...

New Year, More Writing!

It's been a while. I haven't felt like anything I have to say has crystallized and I've been so busy in the "growing" phase of life that I felt like I couldn't speak to it yet. Everything was moving so fast that at many times this fall, I was simply doing my best to hold... Continue Reading →

The Apartment Gremlin

In another piece of writing, this was a name I gave my roommate, Ben. In this mini-essay from my "Warmth" series though, I'd consider him anything but. Working from home alongside someone, and spending such extended periods of time in quarantine together creates a unique routine. I think we've all developed habits with our roomies...

Monday Mornings + Mary Oliver

  Musings from this spring. Sage and peonies, Monday mornings are yours. The bakery doors locked, the Insta-mommies running errands and too busy to post. An alarm that finally doesn't need setting. You trim flowers in the sink as their stems splay out across old cereal bowls and semi-rinsed recycling. The local news hums quietly... Continue Reading →

Stella

In an effort to write more often, our professor assigned us to keep a journal of things we observe in our world. Based on Ross Gay's Book of Delights (which I HIGHLY recommend), we chose a word to focus on through writing mini essays every day. Given that the semester started in a polar vortex,...

5:47 in North Beach

Photo by Eduardo Santos on Unsplash The semester has begun, and I'm already in love with my Groundings in Creative Nonfiction class. The reading list is a marvel within itself. A class of incredible writers to surround myself with doesn't hurt, either. Our first assignment was so much fun I decided to share! This piece... Continue Reading →

No.

I was scrolling through Pinterest again--somehow this often sparks me to write mental health pieces. But I saw this quote and thought, "Are you supposed to do all of these things in one day? The same day?" I've put an ungodly amount of work and therapy into learning how to cope with, recognize, and offset... Continue Reading →

20 in 2020: What I Read This Year

My goal at the beginning of the year was to read 25 books. With the short stories, quick bits of poetry, and half-finished books I couldn't stay awake through, I'd say I mostly hit it. Would I have read this many had a global pandemic not happened? Debatable. Today I'm only talking about the books... Continue Reading →

Just Ask: Getting What You Want

*My piece was originally published on The Bleu. Read the original here. I’m well aware of how ridiculous Pinterest quotes can be, but sometimes I can’t help saving one to my desktop for a quick, inspirational pick-me-up when the going gets rough. I scrolled across a gem recently that said, “Set your goals. Stay quiet... Continue Reading →
