Sad Girl's Grovel

Whiskey And Glitter Dream Girl

Hey, it's me.

Your favorite extroverted introvert. Living on this little island has helped me accept and understand who I am as a woman. I've grown up a tad bit but I still have got major work to do.


They call me Momi now. I think Mona died of tropical heat exhaustion. If I looked in the eyes of my former self I don't think we'd recognize one another. I drink my whiskey neat, smoke Marlboro Red’s, and Red Mango Condado's mixed berry parfaits are my crack. I struggle with major anxiety in social situations and depression. I wonder if people can see the sadness in my eyes and the weight on my soul. My high school counselor gave me a prescription for Xanax and my biggest regret is ripping it up and tossing it. I could've made an additional $400 a month selling them to my white friends who would've paid $60 for a gram of oregano.

I'm generally a pretty healthy vegan minus the chain-smoking. However, once Mary-Jane and I get together all of my health conscious decisions go to shit. La Focaccia guava pizza anyone?

I've sabotaged every loving relationship I've ever had and am convinced I'll end up alone. I spend 94% of my time anxiously freaking out about past mistakes and future endeavors. The other 6% critiquing my body and wanting to be skinnier with fat ol' titties. Which the Puerto Rican men don't seem to like as much *the skinny, not the titties. But it's cool, I can do without Puerto Rican chorizo for awhile.

You would assume an ex-yogi that lives in a tropical paradise would live more in the present moment and be less crazy. Yeah, no. My best friend is constantly insisting that I've got it together; I kindly have to assure her that she has truly lost her crispy chicken fresh lettuce wrapped in a floury tortilla ass mind.

I exist in the depths of solitude; so I've been blessed with the opportunity to observe my thoughts and actions. I'm pretty fucked up. Sometimes I wonder who I'd be, had I not experimented with so many drugs over the years. I'm pondering my true goals. Should I go back to college and complete my doctorate? Make my parents proud? What if modeling doesn't work out? What if it does? I’m trying to find some peace of mind and still preserve my soul. Why do I yearn to be accepted? I hate that I choose my words with people I could give 2 fucks about and spew raw fire at the people I love. Why do the opinions of others hold so much weight? Especially men. My dad says, “define yourself, when you allow others to define you your insides will rot.” No wonder my stomach is constantly aching. I shouldn't give a fuck about what these people think. But I do and I am enslaved. I find it funny when people think they've discovered my inner mystery. I barely have scratched the surface of this tortured soul. So please, enlighten me.


Men want to fix you, save you, or fuck you. I can't be fixed and I don't care to be saved.

“she was a rose
in the hands of those
who had no intention
of keeping her”
Rupi Kaur

I lost my virginity pretty late in life. I have been in 3 major relationships spiced with a plethora of rendezvous with beautiful women and heated with a few awkward one night stands that I'd kill to forget. I can still taste my mistakes...and the pussy of course.

I wish I was a whore. I wish I could fuck any and everyone with no emotional attachment. I wish one night stands didn't set my insides on fire and poison my mind for weeks. I wish I didn't walk miles for men who have never held my feet. I wish I wasn't such an emotionally unavailable, awkward turtle. Why do I find the unavailable so alluring? What about the other men like Raul and Carlito. Why did I make them love me until I could not stand it? Mi amor, I didn't leave because I stopped loving you. I left because the longer I stayed, the less I loved myself. I am both needful and flighty. I wonder how both of these women exist inside of me.

I'm an open wound. Lick me.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.

I realized I need to stop blaming myself for staying single. The problem wasn't me. It was you.

I told you I was going to be okay if you said what was on your mind, but honestly, nothing could've prepared me for the words that came out of your mouth. After getting off of the phone with you, I burst into tears. Those words shattered my heart and continuously repeated in my head.
