Hello again, everyone! It's once again time for me to wax poetic about something that's been bugging me lately: breaking up with a friend. It sucks. It's got the potential to be worse than romantic breakups. It's not (typically) a conclusion one comes to easily or quickly, but I think we all eventually come to… Continue reading Mourning Platonic Loss

Is It Me? Am I the Drama?
A wise philosopher once said, "It ain't nun to cut that bitch off." Snip, snip, h*e (if you know, you know). And one thing about me, I will cut someone out of my life with the quickness.
