Letting You In

Honesty. Given everything going on in the media surrounding the outcome of the election, it seems that that word has kind of lost its value recently. It’s kind of lost its meaning…like when a package of cheese puffs says the ingredients are 100% natural….suuuuure, buddy. Like, what does that even mean anymore? But it still holds a lotContinue reading Letting You In

From Me to You

Well, here we are. Thanksgiving, 2016. I remember this exact day last year, sitting at this very bar stool in the kitchen of my childhood home, crafting this post. Nothing’s changed.

As much as I realllly didn’t want to write about the election, ignoring the state of our nation right now just didn’t sit well with me. Scrolling through social media and watching the news today, there was definitely aContinue reading Profile of a Trump Supporter

7 Things I Learned This Election Season

Well, here we are, on the eve of the election. I don’t know about you, but I’m plum near ready to wave the white flag and just surrender. I can’t take the negativity any longer!   We have seen, unprecedentedly, the worst of humanity. I’ve seen people on my Facebook newsfeed proclaim, “unfriend me if you’reContinue reading 7 Things I Learned This Election Season
