Slow Mourning

I have grieved every day In the anticipation of your loss Fearing that every phone call Will tell me that you are gone Even though the person I knew Was lost to me two years ago now It has been so very long Since I have seen the real you I barely remember what you Were like, except in photos I hold those in my memories Not the image of you today But I cannot move on, no The grieving does not end Because your soul is still here Trapped in a unusable body With only enough will to … [Read more...]

Changing My Moving Perspective

This weekend, my fiancé and I began working on packing up my apartment so we could fully be moved in together, and finally stop paying double in rent, since we have been living with each other for the last 2 and a half months anyway. I have been dreading the packing process, because of my past moving experiences, including the bad scenarios that led up to a lot of my moves, having a Uhaul catch on fire, losing all of my journals from through high school (because I had a stack of boxes that … [Read more...]

Online Dating – The Female Perspective of Match.com

Before I was blessed in meeting my soulmate (via the good old-fashioned, in-person method), I, like many others, embarked into the world of online dating via Match.com.

Let's face it, for those who are a bit shy, it is a great way … [Read more...]

It always amazes me that someone from such humble beginnings can become so famous, and such a major part of history - in this case, music history. … [Read more...]

Emotional Residue from Dreams

This morning, I woke up feeling particularly snarky. In recent months, with exception to times I was sick, I have always woke up in a blissfully sunny mood, but not today. And I am sure it is from what I like to call emotional residue from a dream I had. The fact that I cannot remember the details of the dream just adds to my snarkiness, although I am certain that it involved a massive fight with my ex. I was aware early on in the morning that something was out of balance, but it was not … [Read more...]
