In March 2014, I wrote a love letter to myself, right in the midst of my quarter life crisis. When things get a little too crazy in my head, I type out conversations between Whit (me) and Suni (the author). It helps to calm my anxiety and figure out what […]

“I’ve got that sunshine
It’s like the world is mine
I can’t deny I’m feeling good
It’s not from smiling
I’ve bottled lightening
I can’t deny I’m feeling good.”
– Christina Grimmie, “Feelin’ Good”

Fear of Unknown Consequences

“Let it go, let it go
When I rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone!
And here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm range AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHN
The cold never bothered me anyway.”
– Idina Menzel (Adele Dazeem), “Let it Go”

(I know it’s overused. It speaks […]

Nurture and Protect

By |2017-03-06T11:52:56-05:00March 21st, 2014|Quarter Life Crisis|

My therapist has asked me to think about nurturing and protective forces, people, or (let’s face it, really) characters that I’ve created in my books. Images that I can call on when I’m anxious or scared or sad or lonely as a protective mechanism to calm the feelings and stay […]

I can feel so unloved for someone so kind
I can feel so boring for someone so interesting
So ignorant for someone of sound mind.”
– So Unsexy, Alanis Morissette

Tonight I actually did a bit of writing in the climax of my book. Now, of […]

“It seems every time I find
A good man, he’s got a good little wife
I’m not jealous, but I won’t lie
I don’t want to hear about your wonderful life

Trophy wives with their little black books

Brave

“Say what you wanna say
Just let the words fall out
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave”

– Sarah Bareilles, Brave
