I met this kid yesterday I can't stop thinking about. Perhaps "kid" isn't the right word. He was young, but old enough to be covered in tattoos. I came into this liquor store that also sold soul food. Some lady around the corner had ordered some steak bites and GrubHub dispatched me to deliver it...

    Adam and I got married a few weeks ago at a private ceremony in Ohio.  The decision to get married 101 days before our original date was hard-won but turned out for the best. Adam and I were trying to pay for it ourselves. That meant overtime hours, short sleep, "suggestions" from all sides and&h...

    Last night, we were in his car, driving around, just chatting about life and a party we had just went to. One of his friends just graduated nursing school, so we came out to celebrate with her and her family. I asked Adam to park on a dark street and we just chilled for awhile--napped,…

    Adam and I have 127 days before we're getting married. I started finals this week and have 5 days left before I have to put my pencil down and wait for my semester's grades. I filed my taxes on April 17th at 9:02 pm, so my $855 direct deposit should hit before the middle of…

    I return to work in 22 minutes but I'd like to share a vignette from an hour ago. I drove to my parents house to eat and do laundry, like any college kid does. I walked up to the door, laundry in hand, and paused at the door momentarily to listen to my mother play…

    I returned to university January 2016. I went to community college for 2 semesters 10 years ago. Then there was some weirdness with financial aid that prevented me from continuing. My first year was free as my father filed bankruptcy after the housing market crash and a house fire that destroyed ...

    A short-list of topics that will be covered when I don't have to go to work in 45 minutes: I went back to college for Physics and am 70% done with my degree. My sister died from cancer and my dad had a stroke in 2016. I'm still healing, and helping my family to heal too. I…

     Fall was eventful, and winter is turning out to be too. My old roommate told me to apply at the gig she works at. It's a huge telemarketing firm. Depending on the department, there are sales or customer service positions with headsets and cubicles to boot. They finally called me back at the...

    Last weekend was the last week up in the country. It came upon us like a load of bricks. My room mate and I ended up boxing up things and driving far into the city to take her to live with her brother. I stuffed every important possession I had in the back of my…

    The last few days have been interesting. One of the girls I used to work with at the group home told me about a temp agency that will place anyone in light industrial/ factory work. I went and applied and they got me in somewhere the next day. It's at minimum wage, but it's full…
