news flash, ladies: chivalry is apparently not completely dead.

I told him that he "made my day", which may not have been entirely true since I spent the evening with the adorable little Marcus (2 months old now).  An older gentleman walking behind me into my apartment building insisted on opening the door for me.  Without hesitation, after my heart-felt "Thank You" I expressed my … Continue reading news flash, ladies: chivalry is apparently not completely dead.

love, save the empty. save me.

"I used to have an appetite for my life but now it is gone. I want to go some place where I can marvel at something."   ~Elizabeth Gilbert, "Eat Pray Love" For reasons unbeknownst to yours truly, my appetite has vanished.  Literally and figuratively.  As far as food goes, all I seem to be desiring … Continue reading love, save the empty. save me.

you can sense that she is guarded…that’s alright.

I'm sorry.  There I was, a few days ago, saying that I use this blog as an open & honest format to help others in similar circumstances realize that they aren't the only one... but I haven't been being honest about what I've been going through lately.  Mostly it's because I haven't had too much time on my hands, … Continue reading you can sense that she is guarded…that’s alright.

don’t you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark, twisted games?

I've sat on this thought for a long time.  Probably at least 6 years, if not more.  But I'm not sure if I have ever voiced it out loud (to myself) or to anyone else.  Instead it's an idea that has rolled around in my mind time-and-time-again, but I never knew how best to put those thoughts … Continue reading don’t you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark, twisted games?

those sweet words

Sticks and Stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.  We all know these words very well as they were first spoken as a lesson to be learned from our parents, grandparents, and/or teachers.  As kids we fought off mean words could only be cured with a plate of fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies and chocolate milk.  As … Continue reading those sweet words
