Parents & Potatoes

What do you wear on the day you come out to your parents? What do you cook for dinner and should there be a dessert? Do you help with the dishes and is setting the table too much? (Something you always wear to imply you are still the same person. Potatoes, salad, chicken stir fry. […]

Humble Pie: a Cautionary Tale

My recent move has not disappointed in being an exciting, fresh chapter. And I promise to wax poetic on all my new feelings and Ikea furniture soon.
