    For almost four months now, I’ve been living a bit of a double life. It was a secret at first, mostly because I didn’t want to talk about it, I wanted to just do it. Plus, a lot of people weren’t going to understand. They were going to judge me. Not that I care about […]

  • Why I’m Currently Not Speaking to Rafael.

    [scripty] RAFAEL So, I meant to tell you. I was walking home the other day, and I saw this really beautiful person that looked like you. PAMIE Oh. Oh, well, that’s nice. RAFAEL Yeah, I think I was texting or something, so I didn’t notice until I was like, six inches away, and that’s what […]

  • jacked.

    I’m covered in bruises. Not little tiny ones, but the kind where people grab my wrist and go, “Oh, my God. What happened to you?” It started with just a couple, but now there’s a rather large one on the inside of my left elbow that’s getting uglier every day, and one on top of […]
