A line of b.s.

February 28, 2011

I have a confession. When I am single. (And sometimes when I’m in a relationship). I check the Craigslist Personals. I’m not sure why.

A new room.

February 3, 2011

Just days after he left, I completely re-arranged my room. I had to. It’s a thing I have. Visibly wiping away the evidence, the memories. This is the result. My Mom found the lamp at a thrift store, along with the poster. We’re not finished yet. I still have some stencils from West Elm waiting [...]
