If you asked me what I wanted in life, I wouldn’t think of a career first or money, Or any of the finer things. I wouldn’t think of a house or silly cars that will all fall apart anyway, And so unpredictable, and little danger-boxes. I do love traveling, you know that, And I love … Continue reading What I Wanted
A lot of my friends are foodies. A lot of people are foodies, but I mostly eat to survive. There are things I particularly like to eat but I’m not a very picky eater and I don’t frequently have cravings. After I got home from Japan, I was probably most excited to eat quesadillas or … Continue reading I’m Not A Foodie?
I don’t like that I’m writing about you. It’s cheesy. But I also kind of like to. Because I like to think of all the reasons I’m falling for you. I like remembering your smile, your dimples, your scruff against my fingers. I like remembering your hands in mine, your thumbs running over my palm … Continue reading The Beginning Between

I thought through the old-school artists I knew my dad listened to, but the name Oshea did not jog my memory of late-80’s/early-90’s hip hop and … Continue reading My Namesake (cont’d)
I told my friend I liked him once but I guess he didn’t return the feelings, and he turned me down. I was hopelessly rejected. I was distraught. I was alone. I was single. He didn’t want me. But to be honest, I was none of those things besides single. I had little to no … Continue reading My Namesake
A year ago today, I didn't think things would be this way. I didn't expect for you to be there, Where I could meet up with you. Or for me to be here, Where I would need you. I didn't expect for things to change so much. I've loved so deeply And yet, I've lost so much. … Continue reading A Year from Yesterday
