One Conversation Isn’t Enough

“Did you wash your hands?” “oh!! No! I forgot” “alright go wash them” 30 seconds later “okay, they are clean” “soap?” “oh! I forgot!!” I have this conversation at least 15 times a day. One conversation about equality, about sexuality, about human rights, it isn’t enough. I have to constantly...

My grandpa 

My grandpa is probably going to die soon. I’m in denial. My mom sends me pictures when she visits him on the weekends and it’s hard for me to connect the man I see with the man in my memories. He taught me how to play poker when I was...

Like if you agree

Apparently some people are outraged. I know, I was surprised too. A thing happened and a whole mess of people freaked out. The thing is a super big deal and the whole world needs to know about it yesterday, because we are all probably going to die, or ruin our...

I’m a stay at home mom

I am a stay at home mom. 3 years ago I left a well paying corporate position with a good company. I also had a 6 month old and a 2.5 year old, and I only saw them awake for about two hours a day. This wasn’t completely the company’s...

Men are not dogs

Men are not dogs

About a year ago, I really started questioning the things I grew up believing about my body. I should’ve really questioned most of this years ago- but these were the “truths” I grew up with and accepted. I grew up surrounded by dress codes that disproportionately targeted female attire…because “modesty”....

The Rules

The Rules

I’ve been going through the New Testament lately and picked up on a theme I had never really paid attention to before.  It goes like this- Jesus and the disciples go out and pick food on Sunday Pharisees (Christians) shout – THE RULES SAY YOU CAN’T DO THAT Jesus says-...
