One time…

a friend and I went to visit some other friends at their school that was four hours away. After a night of fun we decided to drive back home at around 2am. We stopped at a store to get snacks and got a box of Simply Dipped Drumsticks as well as a ton of other shit. The two of us devoured bags of chips and candy and cookies in the first hour.

We were about 30 minutes from home and I was getting peckish. I remembered the ice cream and panicked because I imagined it had melted all over the backseat. My friend opened the box and the ice cream was intact!! I was so excited. I opened the wrapper and bit into the candy shell…

Melted ice cream exploded all over me. Never occurred to me that the cone and hardened chocolate were keeping everything inside. Oops.

I sing Sublime’s Bob Marley medley while washing my face as to make sure I always wash for the same amount of time.

I have issues.

Never fails…

every time I watch a movie and a guy says to a girl, “I’m not going to hurt you.” I yell at the TV, “He’s a LIAR!”

Took a trip on the Staten Island Ferry. It was a bit hazy at first but it started to clear up on the trip back to Manhattan. The last time I was on the ferry I was in elementary school. Time flies.

My pain reminds me of the past

I’ve “suffered” with temporomandibular joint disorder ever since I was 12 and generally it’s not a big deal. I get migraines, earaches, my jaw pops and sometimes hurts. Over the years it has gotten worse. I can’t chew gum for more than a minute or two because it gives me a headache now. And some foods are harder to chew than others, but it could be worse. I could have died. 

When I was 12 I went to a carnival with my sister and her friend. They were 17 and I felt super cool hanging out with them. On the way home my sister was flirting with some boys in the car next to us. She was driving way too fast and missed our exit. My sister thought we could make it and tried to take the turn anyway. We went right over a triangular divider and into a guardrail. My mother’s car was totaled. 

I wasn’t wearing a seat belt. I was sitting in the center of the backseat. To make it worse I wasn’t sitting back. I was positioned on the edge of my seat because I wanted to be a part of what the cool kids were doing in the front. When we slammed into the guardrail my face slammed into the front seat. I think I was knocked out because the next thing I remember is my sister screaming outside of the car. 

There we were on the side of the highway and my sister is screaming and panicking like nothing I had ever seen. I was 12, but I reacted the same way I still do today. I was calm and collected and I tried to talk my sister down. When the ambulance got there they put on a neck brace and loaded me in on a stretcher. Then I passed out. I woke up in the hospital and I couldn’t open my mouth. They did x-rays and said I was fine and sent me home. My jaw was pretty much locked for the next week and a half, but then I woke up one day and it was fine.

I type all of this right now as I chew this piece of bubble gum and wish I could keep going, but there is a dull pain starting in my face and I have to pack.

Sometimes I live my life with child-like wonder

I just poured some oil in water and giggled. I love the way it looks and sometimes the little things in life make me very happy.

I am a brown person who grew up in a very rich white town.
When I was little my aunt (or grandmother) would come to my school for performances or to pick me up and I would always get the same comment from my friends, “That’s your aunt? But she’s…white.” I’m sure all of their parents were thinking the same thing, but kids have no filters.

I HAD A ROLLER RACER!!!! No one ever remembers this. My cousins, sister, and I would go down my grandmothers very steep driveway and right into the middle of the street. We were so safe in those days.

When I was 18…

I went to a burrito shop and brought a book written by the owners friend. I loved the book so much that I wanted to read more by the author and looked for a website. I found one that included the authors email address so, I sent him a message letting him know how much I loved the book. We’ve been corresponding for almost 10 years. He lives very close to my hometown, and as of about 2 years ago he has lived in the same town as my oldest dearest friend. He and I have never met in person. Things came up. Life happened.

In about a month I’ll be spending about a week in his town. We’ve made plans to get a drink (or 10) and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little apprehensive. Scared that this dynamic we share will be different in person. Most of all fearful that this will just be one more time that life gets in the way. We’ll always consider each other friends…even if we’re always just images on a screen.

The internet is a strange and wonderful place.

By the time I was in seventh grade I had memorized Romeo and Juliet in its entirety, so when the movie came out in 1996 I was beyond thrilled. I listened to the soundtrack on repeat for a long time. Today I found myself humming this song. I love it.

I love the Bee Gees far more than a 28 year old should. Oh and ABBA - I fucking love ABBA.

My thoughts in the shower

Things I Really Love

  1. The way my legs feel after I shave
  2. A delicious home cooked meal
  3. The way my hair smells after I wash it

Things I Really Hate

  1. Shaving my legs
  2. Washing dishes
  3. Doing my hair after I wash it

Yep. This is what I’m watching right now. I have no shame. I’m 27 and I love Disney Channel Original movies. Line forms to the left, fellas. No pushing - I know you all want me.

I just had a mild panic attack because I thought there was no more orange juice.

I really love orange juice.
