I Am Not a Girl

9 Comments 30 August 2012

I’ve never categorized myself as a girl. In fact, I’ve never even felt like a girl. I recognize myself as a “woman” and as “Lauren”, but not a “girl”. I’ll even take “lady”, but no “girl”. “Girl” conjures up images of monthly hair, manicure and tanning appointments. Weekly shopping trips with girlfriends, yoga classes every [...]

I Believe in a Thing Called Love, Just Listen to the Rhythm of My Heart

9 Comments 19 November 2011

Yesterday I took a big chance. I wrote an article about my boyfriend on CultureMap- which gets way more traffic than my blog does. I often find it difficult to write long posts, but I found myself able to nearly write a book about my boyfriend. The post, titled “Do You Believe in All the [...]

Last Night

8 Comments 08 August 2011

Sitting across the room from him, writing, listening to the consonance of alt-country, thinking how one day I hoped for a moment like this.

I have a boyfriend. This may be nothing amazing in developments for Mankind, but for anyone who knows me, it is nothing short of incredible. Or maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s just mind-blowing to me. You see, I haven’t had a boyfriend in a very long time. Instead, I mostly dated a string of assholes [...]

18 Comments 12 July 2011

I wondered if you even existed when I would see a couple on the street. At the rate I was going, it didn’t seem like I would come to meet you. You were an elusive figure. Someone I was left to writing about. A stranger I was to meet on a subway in a big [...]

To Dance in Laredo

12 Comments 19 April 2011

Life is always an adventure. Even when it takes you to a border town in Texas where friends and loved ones suggest that your safety will be in great danger if you go. Texas is 268,581 square miles of curios. Even on the long stretches of dry nothingness or repetitious sand-colored strip malls, the state [...]

Try a Little Tenderness

7 Comments 14 February 2011

source “I haven’t been in love in a long, long time,” she said to herself in the best Otis Redding impression she could muster up. Heightened emphasis on the first “long.” Eight ‘o’s’. “I haven’t been in love in a loooooooong, long time,” she kept repeating just enough so the purpose behind the sentence meant [...]

When the Flame Faltered

15 Comments 28 December 2010

Most of the time she doesn’t think about how she’d like to be in love. Except for those nights when she watches a movie where the lead characters walk hand-in-hand through Central Park. Or where the man realizes he made a huge mistake and jumps a plane ride back to his love. Or where a [...]
