I swear this makes sense when you really think about it.

#amreading   #amwatching   #television  
My husband prefers film to TV, but I would rather watch a television show. This is something we bicker about, mostly on Netflix nights when we're trying to decide what to watch. Sometimes, in a moment of snobbery, he insists ...

Roxane Gay came to Wilmington and it was one of the greatest things to ever happen to the Port City. 

#feminism   #roxanegay   #writer   #wilmington  
These last few weeks have been lucky, at least as far as feminist idols go. At the end of January, I went to an Ani DiFranco show and remembered what it was like to be young and awake for the first time. Then, last week, the ...

A few words and photos about my uncle's funeral and my sister's wedding. It was an emotional week. 
I mentioned in my last post that I went to both a funeral and a wedding in the same week. Eight days before my sister's wedding, our uncle passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly, of a pulmonary embolism. My mother is one of s...

All the places I've been in the last month.

Here's the funny thing about blogging. When you're busy, you have a lot to write about! But you also have no time in which to write about it. That's the current state I'm in, so I'm stealing a few minutes before work to quick...

A round up of things I am currently writing, reading, eating, thinking, planning, learning, and regretting. 
I'm trying to get away from the idea that every post I write has to be "important" or "enlightening." Sometimes you just want to ramble at the Internet for a few minutes, and that's perfectly okay. In that spirit, here's what...

Ani DiFranco came to Wilmington, and it was amazing. 

#anidifranco   #feminism   #wilmington  
If there is one musical artist that can define my late high school and early college years, it's Ani DiFranco. I discovered her through - no lie - a VH1 countdown of 100 amazing female artists. She was number 80 or so and, in...
