A Thank You Letter To My Dad

Thanks for everything Dad.

A Thank You Letter To My Dad
Charlotte Mahoney-Mosedale


I don't know where to start this so I guess I'll start by saying thank you. Thank you for everything. Thank you for your constant love, your hugs, and support.

When I was preparing to leave for college, I made sure to hug you as many times as I could. A hug from you makes me feel like everything is going to be okay. You always could make me feel better with a hug, even when we were fighting. As we stood in my dorm room to say our goodbyes, I cried on you and you just hugged me and told me that I would see you soon and that you loved me. Even though I was sad, I still believed you that everything would be okay.

In high school, you tried to help me with my math homework, even though it always ended up with me fighting you because I didn't understand it all. I always said how terrible I was at math, but you always disagreed with me and told me that you knew I was smart and could understand what we were doing if I just sat down and worked with it long enough. And then, when I would get my math test back with a decent grade, you were the first one I would call.

Thank you for teaching me so much. I know I can be pretty pushy about doing things, but if I hadn't, I would have missed out on all those times with you teaching me how to drive a stick shift and stalling in the middle of the road with you screaming at me when I was starting to panic. We would always laugh about it later but in the moment it was unbelievably scary and I was always mad at you for yelling at me.

Thanks for taking me to play catch, pitching lessons, batting lessons, and every single sport I have ever played. I had a few rough seasons but you always encouraged me and supported me like no one else. You made me feel like I could do anything I wanted if I put my mind to it.

Thank you for everything you've done for me. I love you so much, Dad. Happy Father's Day. (Sorry it's a little late)


Your favorite daughter

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.
