but loving him was red.

Let's play a little game.  I'll say a word and you say the first word that comes to your mind. Ready... RED. Now some of you may say words such as "apple", "wine", or "shoes". Others may say "roses", "hearts" or "lipsticks". Me, and Taylor Swift, we would say "Love".  Love is Red.  Red is Love.  Love … Continue reading but loving him was red.

all of these lines across my face, tell you the story of who i am.

When you're twenty-nine years old and only beginning your first relationship, people tend to ask, "Why?" to defend that there is nothing wrong with you.  But they might as well save their breath, because there actually is something wrong with you.  I mean how is it that you can be mere months away from a milestone … Continue reading all of these lines across my face, tell you the story of who i am.

if i can love again… and jennifer aniston can love again… so can you…

Every now and then, I'm reminded of a post I wrote about a year and a half ago.  It's a post that many have thanked me for writing because it comforted them to know that someone else had experienced the same loss, pain, and heartbreak as they have.  The post is called, Regrets and mistakes, they're … Continue reading if i can love again… and jennifer aniston can love again… so can you…

getting over a guy in 10 days: day 4

Monday, November 21, 2011: The 4th day of getting over “Cleveland”. After a day stuck in the house battling a cold- or whatever it was- I jumped on the bus in an attempt to give a 3-hour class a try.  Within the 5-minute walk to the bus stop, I knew it wasn't going to happen.  (Darn cold.)  However, … Continue reading getting over a guy in 10 days: day 4
