  • Social Media Awkward

    I haven’t been posting on Fridays because I don’t want to, usually. I need my Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays to be an irresponsible college student who is almost 30 and still single as crap. I had a sudden worry the other night that maybe Fridays were the best day to blog ever and that I […]

  • I’m Swearing Off Grindr And Going To Bars

    Something happened a few times that really bothers me and it happened again, kind of. I have a few other posts I could post today, but because I’m still super upset, I’m going to blog about this instead. See here’s the thing. I’ve never been officially diagnosed with any social anxiety issues or social problems, […]

  • Hurry Please I Want To Know, The Snow Child, and In Our Time

    I’ve been told to write everyday over the summer. Okay, challenge accepted. Classes have been over for about a week and I’ve already written thirty pages of crap. Not bad crap; I’ve gotten pretty good at polishing turds if I do say so myself, but it’s not as hard as marble or even as hard as […]

  • The Goldfinch, Daredevil, and As I Lay Dying

    I’m probably one of about twenty people who hasn’t already read The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt yet. I’ve managed to avoid all the discussions and articles about the book for the better part of two semesters. I’m kind of proud of that. With the semester winding down, I suppose it’s probably time to think about […]

  • Ron Carlson Writes A Story and The Governor’s Ball

    My second semester at the University of Louisville is coming to end. In some ways, it was a better semester than my last. I got to write some more, and I actually got to participate in my first master class. Thank you, Michelle Latiolais! I also learned a lot about myself as a writer this […]
