She smiled and the world became brighter..

The worst had happened,  my phone died as I was trying to Netflix and chill. I know,  the end was near. Ha. So I plugged in my phone and nodded off at 8 on a Friday night. Sad. I had a horrible week as a temporary factory girl that lacked the glorification of an  Andy…

Start at the beginning

I couldn’t get out of bed today. My stomach kept grinding. My head filled with negativity. Why the hell am I here?  What’s my purpose? For some reason I went scrolling through pictures.

Dear Mandi, (a letter to my teenage self)

FIRSTLY,  YOU are pretty AND awkward. However,  it’s all good because you became funny because you weren’t busy dating a loser guy with barely any chest hair. You are not fat. You have curves and one day you’ll have perky boobs when others have droopy orange at the bottom of a pair of hose looking…

It’s impossible to eat all your feelings.

When the shit hit the fan in May I went to the help of some crappy friends, Ben & Jerry. They suck because those bastards caused me to gain 10 pounds of FEELINGS…that added to an already overweight body.  However,  I still wanted more. So I ate more. I could never eat enough to get…
