A Sincere Thank You

One of My Least Desirable Qualities

I’m not a dog person. People cringe when I tell them. I lose more friends over not being a dog person than I do over being gay.   Torture to me is someone holding their phone up to my face and swiping through hundreds of photos of their dog walking, …

The Lost Chapter

I wish he didn’t live in DC. If he lived in LA this would be absolutely perfect. I think back to the first time I met him. We hadn’t even kissed before I asked him to room with me. He was it. I knew it. I wish I could meet …
