Only happy when it rains

This morning I had one of my patented Steph Freakouts™. Oh good, we haven’t had one of those in a while. Welcome, old friend. Friends always tell me they don’t know how I keep putting myself out there. I say it’s because I don’t know any other way to be, but I wonder – how…… Continue reading Only happy when it rains

You can’t make an omelette …

Well, I’ve written and deleted about five versions of this post in the past 20 minutes, so I might as well just cut the shit and get right to it: things didn’t work out with JB.

There was Grade School Steph, tragically and hopelessly in love with the beautiful, popular boy…… Continue reading Crush it

Pen-t up

Clearly I like to write about my feelings. I have eleventy billion journals floating around my apartment — some written in, others just sitting there and judging me with their sad, blank pages. There’s something about putting pen to paper that has always felt right (and always will), something no amount of page views or likes…… Continue reading Pen-t up

On the road

I dreamt I was driving the wrong way down a one-way street. In fact, it was a highway, but the cars in every damn lane were going in the direction I wasn’t. Real subtle, thanks brain.I’ve been feeling a bit odd lately. Maybe that’s not the right word. I’ve been feeling a lot of feelings lately. The anxiety has crept…… Continue reading On the road
