Unbroken

You never said it, you didn’t really ever say anything, but you didn’t think I was worth the effort. And I almost believed you were right. You thought the shine was gone from me and I wasn’t exciting or new or out of the ordinary. And I almost believed you were right. You thought everything […]

Dear Me

January 29, 2005 Hey girl, It’s me. I mean it’s you – coming at you from 10 years in the future. Freaky, right? I just wanted to check in and let you know in a vague way with no clear spoiler alerts what the future holds for you, my dear. I know you think you […]

Well that didn’t turn out as planned…

Everything critical to blizzard survival was already in stock. Snow melts, I figured.  Surely I could just wait it out. But then I looked […]

I Need A Boyfriend
