An Open Letter to the Guys at the Gym

Dear Guys at the Gym, I’m so glad that I get to see all of you every day. My 5 pm – 6 pm gang. We all get to hang out in silence. Inches from each other, moving around heavy stuff and ignoring each other’s presences with headphones in. I know all of your names. Well,…

I Think I’m Hot, Deal With It

I feel good. I’m tan from a recent vacation, thin from a lot of work put in during the winter months, and my hair has finally reached my shoulders after a bad haircut. I look smokin’. Are you cringing yet? My guess is that you are because who do I think I am to have…

My Female Hero

Today is International Woman’s Day so I decided to take it back to middle school English class and write a little something about my female hero. Of course, there are lots of female heroes I could write about, but why write about a stranger when my whole life I had a female hero right beside…
