Grammy, I Wish You Were Here For The Adult Years

Every day, I wish you were still here.

Grammy, I Wish You Were Here For The Adult Years
Annie Lipsett

Every day, I wish I could tell you so much. I wish I could tell you how much I miss you, how heartbroken our family is, especially my mom. I'm sure you're not surprised by any of this, but I wish I could tell you. I wish I could tell you everything that's happened since you've passed away.

Where to begin? Well after a terrible junior year, my senior year of high school was a blast. I drove to school every day and got a good part in the play. I went to Disney World on the Senior trip, then went to Europe with my sister on that Theater trip you didn't want us to go on. It was a once in a lifetime experience though and we were totally safe.

I choose the only college I wanted to go to, Towson University. I'm currently in my second year and am studying film. I'm in a film society and a sorority, and through these groups, I've made lifelong friends. My first year of college was a success. I met some wonderful people and really blossomed into an independent young woman.

I've had two boyfriends since you passed. The first one was very kind and treated me well. We went to senior prom together and broke up eventually because he was a sophomore and I was headed to college. The second one I'm currently dating. He is exactly my type: cute, into movies and perfectly nerdy. He is beyond sweet and treats me like a princess. I'm very happy with him. I wish you could meet him, I think you would like him.

There are so many people I've met, experiences I've had that I wish I could tell you all about. I often wonder how you'd feel about them. I wonder how you'd feel about the shape of the world today. I think you would try to find some good amidst all the bad. I know that you would never lose hope.

Every day I wish you were here. Every day I wish I could tell you everything I'm feeling, you always knew exactly what to say. Every day I miss your wit, you warmth, and your magnetic personality. Every day I miss you. Every day I wish I could tell you how much I love you.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
