An Exciting Night at the Memory Care Unit!

What an exciting last day at the memory care center! Miss Mary (the one my dad calls an asshole to her face) came out into the living room area in a sexy night gown, went up and rubbed my dad’s bald head (like she tends to do), and straight up propositioned him lol.  “You want…

The People Who Take Care of People

My stepmom and I gave the staff at my dad’s memory care home this basket of goodies that I picked out for them (we also gave Derek his own special present since he’s like my Dad’s BFF/mom now). The men and women who take care of him are amazing and make my dad so happy…

The Escape Artist

​​​ ​ There’s an amazing lady here at the Alzheimer’s home that they call The Escape Artist because she is sharp and creative and is always trying to get the fuck outta here. Not because she hates this place or anything but because I imagine she’s a lot like me and would be pissed by…

Me and My Boo

Literally the first thing I did when I got off the plane. I think I made him blush. That or he felt sorry for me. Actually I think it’s the latter. Nashville, TN

Trying So Hard To Be a Boy 

Only one friend of mine knew I straightened my hair back when I was living in my truck. During that time, I was still trying to fool people into thinking  I didn’t care about my looks cuz that’s what I thought only girly-girls cared about and I was not gonna be one of those. No,…

Women

   This was one of the first times I witnessed what women can do when they fight for what’s right, even if it pisses off a few boys. I’d worked at Taos Ski Valley for years but my department was run by a guy I was super intimidated by, who always acted like a dick,…

Your Stories

A few weeks ago a fellow writer messaged me and asked me to read her novel and give her notes after I said I was looking for work. I combed it over and gave really thoughtful, detailed notes about the things that landed, the things that didn’t, where I was confused as a reader, what…

Sleeping next to guys I’m not sleeping with

It never occurred to me until I left the outdoor adventure industry that it’s actually pretty weird to sleep next to your coworkers. But it was all part of the intensity of a crazy ass job and it was one of the many perks. I really miss that level of platonic intimacy I so easily…

My Inappropriate  Christmas Card

   I’m so excited to write my first ever Christmas card! I’ve never done this before cuz I thought I’d look like a narcissist if I just took a selfie of me, a single woman, in front of my tiny fake tree that smells like cat piss. But this year I thought, fuck it, I’m…

A Stranger Sent Me This

   Thankful that yet another one is freeing herself.  She listened to my podcast (link is here and friended me on FB. She wasn’t sure if she was ready to leave him a month ago but the tides have turned. So stoked for her (though concerned too because she’s worried he’s gonna try to kill…
