Here’s What a Relationship Is Like When It’s Working


It’s funny: when I was single, articles about Being Single poured out of me… one second I was having a coffee out in the city to feel a little less alone, and then bam: there was a thousand words about #TheSingleLife, typed up in a Word doc as if by magic. Now that I’ve been in a relationship for 3 years, you’d think I’d write about that instead. But I don’t. Maybe it’s because I’m worried I’ll jinx myself by flooding the internet with articles about being in love, only to get dumped 3 months later and end up hating myself for all the permanent remnants I left behind. Maybe it’s because it’s because when you’re happy, your natural inclination isn’t too turn to a laptop, but to the person who’s making you happy. Maybe I’m just lame and undisciplined and not making enough time to write anymore.

And yet, here’s a new article for Thought Catalog about being in a relationship that works. Because whatever I’m doing is working right now, and my affection runneth over enough that I decided to say, “fuck the jinx, and fuck being too lazy to write, here’s a thousand words on what it’s like to be happy.” Hope you like it.

A 20-Something’s Letter to Santa


Nothing puts such a strong spotlight on the aging process quite like the holidays. Over are the days of asking for toys and games, replaced instead by the basic necessities you haven’t quite figured out how to buy for yourself like a real adult would. “A 20-Something’s Letter to Santa” is a satirical open letter to Santa Claus concerning our generation’s shifting needs this holiday season — and it’s up here on Huffpost Comedy.

A Label Whore’s Guide To Love

labelwhoreguideI used to have a slight problem when it came to designer goods and credit card debt, by which I mean, my overwhelming love for the former was a direct cause of the latter.

While my shopping addiction is (mostly) under control these days, I DO still believe that some things in life are just too important and too special to try and get at any kind of discount (literal or figurative)… and falling in love is one of them. New on Thought Catalog today, here’s my article: A Label Whore’s Guide To Love.

What David Sedaris’ Fisting Joke Teaches Us About Art

david-sedaris-croppedA lot longer ago than I’d like to admit (I *really* need to start writing about things in a more timely manner!), I had the opportunity to hear best-selling author and acclaimed humorist David Sedaris speak, and he told us a pretty foul joke involving a grandma, a grandpa, and anal fisting. This might seem strange to some (ok, probably to most), but I found myself very inspired by the joke, as well as by the story surrounding it. Now, I’ve finally written about it for Thought Catalog, here.
