Do You See Me?

It’s not a question of “What are we doing?” or “Are we dating?” or even, “Are you sleeping with anyone else?” It’s only this: “Do you see me?”Because as much as I want to know him, I want to be known. Whether we drift apart in a few weeks or get married on some green hillside without shoes, my desire remains the same....more

Blographer by Adorama

Cross Post - To Market, To Market

The apartment hunting process in NYC is a pain in the butt. Finding shelter in this big town is a far cry from "sane", let alone "ideal". I've driven OG to madness at least 3 times in the past 2 days. I've actually never seen him so upset with me before until last night, which I'll get to later. It really put a strain on our relationship because I was on pins and needles for the past couple of weeks ...more

I Am My Mother’s Favorite Daughter

…I’m also my mother’s only daughter.   But I’m well on my way to being the favorite child…which isn’t saying much since my only competition is my brother, Lunchbox. Last Christmas Lunchbox got my parents a Blue Ray DVD player. Thoughtsy: What the heck, Lunchbox? Are you trying to make me look bad?...more
