PIMA Chronicles #14: Really though...

After my very-sad-day getting my IUD removed, I was writing about my experience at Planned Parenthood… trying to sort through a conversation I overheard in the waiting room, while also talking about my new birth control plan… but that post will have to wait until tomorrow. Something else needs to be addressed… and PIMA needs […]

Removing my IUD

Removing my IUD

I’ve decided to remove my IUD. (Wow. It was hard for me to even write that. How the hell am I going to go through with this?) As I was saying… I’ve decided to remove my IUD. Well actually get it removed. (You should never try and remove an IUD yourself!) And today is D-day. […]

10 Facebook updates... unsent

I have so many things in my head that I can write about tonight, but after almost an hour of me starting and stoping different posts… I’ve decided to just write about them all (the beauty of this challenge! It’s what I make it.) Think of this list as Facebook posts I could have written […]

Day Dreaming about Sierra Leone

Day Dreaming about Sierra Leone

Ok. I woke up this morning day dreaming about Sierra Leone! Oh Salone… my country of birth… Here are my experiences there since I finally got a green card in 2006, and was able to travel. I went in 2008 right after their Presidential elections (and right before America elected President Obama) excited, curious, and full of hope! I […]

The Consistent Man In My Life

Another train ride post… It’s 3:24am and I just boarded a local 2 train to Brooklyn from Harlem. This is sooo not like me! But I guess in addition to writing for 30 days I am also trying to step outside my comfort zone. But… as much as I want to just gush about my […]

I can finally call myself a feminist!

I can finally call myself a feminist!

I’ve been trying to put my finger on why I felt Caitlin Moran’s book, “How to be a woman,” so deeply and I think I finally know. While raving about it to yet another person– this time to Liz, my boss at Bedsider– I said, “For the first time, I can finally call myself a feminist.” […]

Tips for getting my skin back on point!

Have you heard about my skin issues? (Read all about them here: Part 1 & Part 2.) Well, up until this point I’ve just been focused on getting an accurate diagnosis and treatment… and not trying to think about the scars left by the white-pimple-looking-outbreaks that have healed. But now that I’m on the road […]

My “I am” poem

June 13th, 2013  |  by  |  published in Blog, Personal Essays

My "I am" poem

I have sat down with the intention of “writing a poem,” a few times during this writing challenge… but frankly, it’s felt like such an overwhelming task, in this “Def Poetry” world we now live in. I think about the reaction to my words, before I can write them. To me, poetry universally has this ability to touch people […]
