Chronicles of a Weirdo Magnet
It is a rare and beautiful occasion when venturing out into the mysterious and unpredictable world that your eyes meet with a complete stranger and the two of you know immediately that you are both thinking the exact same thing. For me when I say this is rare, I MEAN RARE, because I tend to have a very unique perspective on things and for someone, that I have randomly floated into my world, to have the same thought process... let’s just leave it at that, it’s rare.
Lingering Effects for Houston's Flooded — Trauma, Grief, and Loss

The Unconventionally Typical Story of How I Met My Fiancé
With technology evolving at such a rapid pace, and its large role it plays in our daily lives, it is no surprise to find that it has also changed the way we conduct our relationships. Everyone connects online now. Your great aunt, your brother, and the guy who lives downstairs are all your friends on Facebook. You post tweets about the latest episode of Scandal on twitter, and daily selfies of you and your dog on Snapchat and Instagram all so you can be connected to the people in your life. Technology is our way of making connections now, and that remains true for our romantic relationships too. With sites such a Tinder, Match, eHarmony, and the thousands of other dating platforms out there, technology makes it easy for us to connect with people we might not have otherwise met.
Noel Leon and Uldouz Wallace Answer All Your Questions
Noel and I collaborate a lot on Instagram - we laugh, we pose, and then we laugh some more! We get interviewed a lot, so we decided to ask each other some tough questions: what our love lives are like, which celebrities turn us on, and who the hell Elon Musk is...
The Trans Awakening
This story is a pretty deep one filled with confusion and emotion. It’s a story of a girl who didn’t know she was a girl until she was an adult man. This is a story of a 25-year-old woman born and raised a man. This is the true story of Alexandria Victoria in the making.
I Was Demoted After Being Sexually Harassed
I've worked every entry level job under the sun; some for days, some for years. I've done everything from answering phones behind a desk, to flipping burgers in a greasy kitchen. However, even with a varying background of experience, nothing could have prepared me for this.
The Adventure Begins
I've hesitated continuously deciding on whether or not to not only write this, but also post this for the world to see, because I somehow convinced myself that my message in this piece was worth reading. I really hate myself for doing this but, it's very "me." I can't think of a better "Hey there" to you after not speaking for a while.
What NOT to Say to a Flood Survivor
Houston, Texas has just endured a flood and weather event of historic proportions in Hurricane Harvey. Survivors are fatigued and battered, stunned by their losses. If you know someone affected by this, you may long to reach out to comfort and reassure. Don't do that unless you can be truly empathetic.
The Story of a "Prison Wife"
In the photo above, what do you see? Some would see it as a couple overcoming a task together. Perhaps she couldn't quite make the climb on the rock so she's looking to her partner for support. She has his support as he pulls her up but, if she slips, she could land up bringing them both down. This, like anything in life that involves 2 people requires trust, especially in a relationship. But what if your relationship isn't like anyone else's? Say, for instance, your significant other is incarcerated?
Strong Women Are Not That Strong
Almost a decade ago, in my first year as a Psychology undergraduate student, a colleague of mine said to me, "You are good at picking up the big fights, but you never go for the little ones."It took me a long while to realise what he really wanted to say. Some years later, I had a little glimpse: I was always ready to save others but I would put myself at the very bottom of my "people to save today" list. I could easily move mountains for someone else, but I rarely could engage in something that would lead me to my own happiness. Actually, I would never even think about that detail.
An Open Letter to My Ex-Husband
When it comes to relationships, we stay with people for all kinds of reasons. Those with children say “stay together for the kids.” Some people stay together because they believe if they separate or divorce, their God will frown upon them. Some people stay out of fear, of their life, of other’s perception, of what could happen to them if they’re on their own. People stay and go for all kinds of reasons, but the reasons are usually so they can find a happier, better life.
Long Distance Relationships: Can Anyone Do It?
So you're lying in bed grinning ear to ear because that one super hot guy that you've been interested in for a while finally asks you out.
