A kind of magic

A kind of magic

It’s a very funny thing… this week, against all of my instincts, I went ahead and shared my feelings. Even though all my pores told me not to, I was blunt and honest and explained not only what was bothering me but also why I felt it was important for me to share those… and, … Continue lendo

Happy Birthday to You…

Happy Birthday to You…

This is a special day, but it feels really bitterweet to me. Today I celebrate the birthday of someone really special to me, but I can’t stand by his side. It sucks. We had plans together, I had plans for him, but the immigration didn’t quite care enough about his birthday to grant me my … Continue lendo

#MeToo

#MeToo

I have already spoken out about this before, but as I keep on reading repeatedly about how many people – both men and women alike – have suffered this and kept quiet – just like me – I believe it is time to address it again. Even if I’m not a public person or even … Continue lendo

This one is on me

This one is on me

“You didn’t think I’d do it, did you?” – he asked me with a challenging tone on his voice.I immediately denied it, blaming my insecurities to all the immigration crap I have been through in the past month.

No more apologies

It’s a funny thing that happens every now and then. I’ve been actively writing these posts for over five years now and, at times, there are still people who feel hurt when they find themselves inserted here and there, even if I work really hard at not identifying anyone by name of specific traits. To you … Continue lendo

I can’t write a love song

I can’t write a love song

I’ve always wanted to write a lovesong. For some reason, I used to think it was one of the most amazing gifts you could ever give someone. Within my romantic teenage brain it was the definition of a gift everlasting. Well, I never managed it. Writing in rhymes is just not my thing. Also, I … Continue lendo

You better, you bet

You better, you bet

I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck. It’s not just the anxiety pills that seem to make me feel weird, it’s not like being drunk, it’s different. I’ve spent the last three months waiting for the email that would never come, and then it came. And that’s just worse. Now, I’m officially a … Continue lendo

Swipe right

Two years ago – to the day – I made a seemingly silly decision that changed everything. I swiped right. And right barely begins to cover it.You know how I keep mentioning this wonderful man, a “British boy” who changed my life? Well, if I hadn’t swiped right two years ago he would never exist … Continue lendo
