I used to ride home from college with my friend Becca. She had a red Chevy Cavalier named Joan. Or Judy. One of those. The drive from Charleston to Greenville is just over three hours. On Friday afternoons we were in great moods. We would sing and smoke cigarettes. Hav...

“It’s the day of the show ya’ll”

-Waiting for Guffman 

So unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that today was the day that Krispy Kreme replaced their normal glaze with chocolate and people went ape shit. 

For real. I happened to drive by Krispy Kreme at 7:50...

I took an Ativan at like 6pm last night so I’ve been passed out for the past 13 hours. My parents will be here at like 10:30am to drive me to Atlanta. It’s fanny pack off day so I’m literally counting down the minutes until they unhook me from this thing.

This past New Years Day, Jaimie and I drove up to Brasstown, a little resort tucked away in the North Georgia mountains. They had this insane deal on Travelzoo, and I bought three nights for $69 dollars each. And since we got there on the first, once everyone was heade...

“You trying to relax is the most stressful thing in the world.” 

This is what Jaimie said to me yesterday as I was trying to do nothing. My doing nothing was wiping down the stove haphazardly. 

Yesterday was a a hard day. My chemo brain started earlier than normal. It us...

We went into Anthropologie yesterday. That's a weird name for a store. Like are they telling us that 2000 years ago clothes and flatware had flower prints and were girly?   

Had to get up at 4:45 this morning to drive to Atlanta for treatment. That is a bummer morn...
