What It's Like To Miss Someone For The Holidays

I love the holidays. Absolutely 100% love Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. It's the best time of the year.

I also hate the holidays because you aren't here. I lost you guys last year in a car accident and holidays just aren't the same.

I see you everywhere in everyday moments, I think about you every day, and imagine what our lives would be like if you were still in it.

The holidays are the hardest along with your birthday which of course falls right in between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our family gets together and tries to make the most of it, but I can tell that it's not just me that misses you. I see the sadness in your mom even as she watches us all open gifts. She tries to hide it but I know.

We try to make every year special for your little boy, I'm not sure how much he remembers you now. You would give him the world for the holidays so we try to do the same, but you can tell it's different and confusing for him.

I see your sparkle in him, but it still doesn't make up for the witty comments and laughs we had together every holiday. I miss your jokes and you always being fashionably late.

You always gave the best gifts even if we hadn't spent time together for a while. Now I cherish those gifts so much more than I ever thought to when you were alive.

And now every New Year I realize that I have to go into another year without you. 2020 is a whole new decade that you didn't make it to.

All these big moments that are supposed to be spent with family always feel off. Your bright light in the room is gone and we are all forced to go on without you but I know you would want us to live life to the fullest.

We miss you, always and forever.

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.
