Usually, my dreams mean nothing. I wish that I had exciting dreams, or meaningful dreams, but I don’t. I often don’t remember them, or if I do, and I think about them, they are nonsense. There are no profound messages coming through, no prophecies. I used to get anxiety dreams, usually based around school. I […]

I’m not used to years like this. In past years, I’ve set goals for myself, or resolutions. I wasn’t planning on it this year, as I want next year to be a continuation of this one. And yet, I know that it can’t be, that each year, each month, and each day, are unique unto […]

No quote to start, we’re just going to dive back in. First off, I’d like to thank you for sticking with me until the end of the trilogy. I’m not sure why the concept of getting a glimpse appealed to me, but maybe it’s because that’s all I’ve gotten. I’ve never had sustained success in […]

“Why do you think you’re still single?” Then I met the girl that I thought would end it all. Okay, that’s too strong, but at the very least, she stood out. I immediately extended our connection on the app because something in me clicked. Maybe it was intuition, or maybe it was the fact that […]

“Do you feel pressure?” “No, well, maybe a little bit.” “Why?” “There’s pressure to see if we connect.” I was asked the above question during a somewhat recent date. On the whole, the conversation flowed. In our conversations, we talked about little things like where we had lived, but the conversation also went deeper than […]

The cold nights begin, as that winter air creeps in, slowly but surely. I do love this time of year, as the days are warm, and the nights are cool. It’s great weather for sleeping, which is something I used to really struggle with, and sometimes still do. For the most part, I’ve learned to […]

“Are you trying to compete with yourself, where you previously were?” I love the idea of a birthday post. I get super reflective around this time of year, and writing down my thoughts helps me to process them. I just made the hard decision to bow out of a race in a few short weeks. […]

***Imagine I posted this a month ago*** Let’s dive back in. Four years ago, I wrote a post called Out of the Pit (Part I). I’m not kidding. The date was June 26th, 2018. In some ways, it isn’t shocking. Father’s Day was yesterday, and even though it’s been over 10 years, it’s a day […]

“So, how much do you weigh?” I walked out onto the tarmac with the group, and handed my backpack to someone. I climbed onto the plane that looked to be several decades old, clipped in my seatbelt, and waited for takeoff. I was told to sit on the right side of the plane. We were […]

“You know, we wouldn’t still be friends if you couldn’t go deeper, if we couldn’t have serious conversations.” I sat in the Philadelphia airport, and killed time. It’s strange being in an airport twice in one month, when it really hasn’t been an option for the past two years. I watched the people walk around, […]
