Light eminating from the phone screen at 3 am was melting my eyes, but I continued to pick and choose the ingredients of my date.
Cheesies off Belmont
Amidst the hustle and bustle of Lakeview, right off the Belmont red line stop, lies a shining delicacy of all things cheese.
Unlikely Art Supplies
Thrift stores are a gold mine for artists~ Normally, you wouldn't think to visit thrift stores to begin your next project as an artist. They have a random assortment of "junk", all varying in quality and appeal. Visiting a thrift store could be a last resort if you need a specific item, but they generally don't stand out as an ideal spot for gathering materials.
Dogs Can Be Scary!
Ever since my neighbor's husky bit into a chunk of my leg, I developed a pretty intense fear of dogs. This childhood fear stuck around for most of elementary school. Having constant anxious thoughts about dogs changed my mannerisms with them, and I would do anything avoid their presence at all costs.
Floating in the glass of Merlot were the remnants of a human tooth. The tulips in the center of the table began to droop, and the restaurant grew heavy with a ringing silence.
Gerard Way, Help...
Black studded belts, side bangs, and winged liner did NOT die out after 2014. Well, at least in my case they didn't for a bit.
Neuroscience & Lo-fi Beats
Music is healing, and your brain thinks so too! All genres have their own soothing qualities that help all folks around the world find those incredible moments of intense emotion, reflection, and sometimes introspection. Music has the ability to lull my overwhelmed brain into a better headspace, and its something I am utterly grateful for!
Bring Me Merlot
I can't believe I died over a glass of Merlot, while being at the mercy of a nutcase from a stupid dating app. It's a long story, but I am practically writing this while looking down at my pathetic body contorted off the side of the Vincent Hotel. Too much? A little gory? My bad. I guess I should explain how this unfortunate incident happened and trace it back to the beginning of the night.
