Six minutes after I saw you, I threw myself across my bed like a princess in distress. To be honest, it was more of a strop than anything else, the kind that involved burying my face in my pillows. When she called me to ask me for details, the best I could ...

That thing we do
When people ask me what's going on between us, my answer is perfectly rehearsed by now. It lacks the eloquence of someone who works with words, but it's the best I can do. It's a thing that's a thing, but not a thing, you know? They don't know, but that's b...

For a while now, my mother has been telling me that I'm 'knocking thirty', and it's as if she's sure I can't count. I'm well aware that I should be using eye cream, and I should actually be taking care of myself instead of eating Marmite on toast for dinner...

I'm not someone who's very hard to read. I'm openly complicated, and I talk so much you'd never know that this doubt is alive. I write and chatter and rant, and I'm always overexposed. My theory is that if I'm open about it, maybe someone will accept it. Ma...

Secret places
As someone who tends to run away from things, I'm always trying to find refuge. I hunt for new places, hidden haunts, and I'm always searching for sanctuaries filled with strangers. I go to piers, beaches and places protected by lights and water, always loo...

Kryptonite
I'm usually a smart girl. I don't take risks I know won't be worth it, and I don't usually run my mouth before thinking about it first. I try not to give in to weaknesses, or lose focus on what is in front of me.  I try not to believe in the promise of unpr...

The things I like
You chewed your straw like you were holding your tongue. The most annoying thing about getting to know someone is the waiting game. It's the lookout. The search for signals, messages and time between conversations. Who has the patience for any of it, really...

First times
The first time is always uncomfortable. The first time you tell a white lie, fall in love, or break someone's heart can make you blue. The first time you crack a bone, bruise flesh or push through recovery can leave you skittish. The first time you scrape y...

What it's like to be afraid
Everyone is scared of something, and we all have something that keeps us awake at night. We all have our reasons for keeping the covers on the bed, and a safety blanket never hurt anyone. I used to think I wasn't afraid of much, I've seen a lot, after all. ...

A goodbye list
A really good goodbye should be short, sweet, and painless. Endings should be succinct. Things rarely turn out this way, but you can't blame me for trying to get one thing right as the year closes. 2017 was awful for a lot of reasons. It was confusing, infu...
