An Open Letter To The Next Guy Who Dates Me

Hey there cutie,

First of all, congratulations. You just signed up to date this mess, but the important thing is, this mess let you into her life!

So I am assuming you must have a great sense of humor and a fantastic personality. That’s what I fall for. I only ask for 3 things: loyalty, honesty, and care. If you are able to complete that then I doubt I will find anything wrong with our relationship.

However, as I mentioned before, I am a mess. And here somethings that I will just list and if you don’t like then let’s not waste each other’s time:

  1. Let’s talk about appearance. I don’t pick guys based off of looks, though good looks are a plus. I’m talking about my looks. I have flat hair, bumpy skin, pimples, I’m not curvy in any way, I’m not athletic or skinny. I’m the awkward thing between skinny and curvy, but I am content with my body, so take it or leave it.
  2. I’m blunt. I don’t have any barriers, I will say anything and talk about anything, so don’t feel uncomfortable when I say weird things.
  3. I’m tired. I am a nursing student, so I will be tired, if I stay up with you past 10pm, you better make me some hot chocolate.
  4. Which brings me to my next topic. I love chocolate. And food. I love food. Especially spicy food, so be able to deal with a human with an appetite of a pig.
  5. I am sheltered. (was sheltered). I never skateboarded or snowboarded in my life. That just shows you how protected my parents were.
  6. I’m broke. So don’t plan anything crazy expensive, and I don’t need you to either, homemade spaghetti is just as good as a steak from a 5 star restaurant.
  7. Now personality. I am weird. I have fluctuations between out going crazy girl and shy quiet girl, really depends on how much sleep I got.
  8. Now my past. I’ve dated a bad boy and done somethings that not everyone might approve of, but it’s my past and I regret nothing. It was all an experience and it made me who I am.
  9. I am a mother. Just one child, but unfortunately my child died when I had a miscarriage. This is a touchy subject for me. If you really cared about me, you’ll be willing to lend me your ears as I tell you everything that went down.
  10. I’m very simple, but my heart has been broken. Not from previous boyfriends, but from friends, family, and life in general. I try to make the best out of everything, but there will be days where I just don’t feel like it.

Dating me is simple if you just accept me. I don’t need flowers or teddy bears, I just want your time and love. So, whoever you are, please take good care of me. I don’t want another scar.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
