the ecolab man


There is one man who throughout the past year has been very dear to my heart: the ecolab man. Our friendship began my first month as a graduate assistant (now renamed to senior resident assistant) in the housing office. I was in my office doing Lord knows what, when this man comes to the door. […]

So here is what I know I believe: Faith (or leaps of) Gut instinct (and trusting it) A Bigger Plan And with that, I embarked on a fabulous weekend that included getting sick, dancing, walked out on my best friend, kissing a stranger, finding a man, trying on a few hats, taking some photos, drinking, […]

teacher crush


I am not an active dater. I don’t go out of my way to lore guys in. On most days, I don’t even try. But there is something hot about a successful man. A man who has all his ducks in a row and appears genuinely happy and satisfied with life. For a little while […]
