My Boyfriend Graduated The Police Academy

There were so many emotions running through me - proud, emotional, fear.

My Boyfriend Graduated The Police Academy

Milestones are something I love being able to share with my boyfriend. Times of celebration and spending extra time with family is one of the best things. We spent this weekend with each other and his family and I was in total bliss, but there were so many thoughts and emotions running through my head.

Being an officer isn't an easy job and my boyfriend's abilities and knowledge are not just impressive, but admirable. Listening to him talk about his career and his hopes for the future is one of my favorite things to do. This happens quite often in the car and all I can do is sit there and smile. Sharing our life together is something I look forward to every day.

But I am also so scared of what's to come because there is so much unknown.

Right now, we don't know when we'll see each other again because of his schedule and adjusting to the crazy 12+ hour days and my moving back to school in a month. Time is limited and scarce, which made saying goodbye so insanely hard because I don't know when I'll see him again and be able to physically see if he's doing okay. When we first met, we saw each other just about every day because we were at the same college. It hasn't been like that for a year but the added element of danger and unknown doesn't help the constant worries that come with doing long distance.

It isn't a secret that being an officer has the potential of being dangerous - which is terrifying to think about. It's terrifying to think that one call could drastically affect his life, our life together. At the end of the day, with lots of prayer and hope and optimism, I have a lot of hope for him and his career.

This weekend was just a small glimpse into our future and I'm so looking forward to all of the adventures and milestones to come. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have found someone so driven and motivated in regards to his career. I'm so hopeful for everything he's going to do with his career and for our life together.

I love you, babe, be safe and come home to me.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
