This Cake Sucks
As much as we want to compartmentalize and try to fit our lives into safe little boxes, the world is made out of a chaos that we will never quite understand. Chaos is composed of both the tragic and comedic and the line between the two is often blurry, but when it’s blurry you know it’s real. Tonight was a perfect example. It was my mother’s 57th birthday and I woke up this...
You Know What's a Bad and Good Idea?
Finding your journal that dates from December 2003 through February 2009 and reading sections of it. At least I’ve come a long way since that point. More than 3/4ths of my Darrow experience seemed to partly revolve around a guy who to me now is one of the most egotistical, manipulative people on the planet.. I’ll blame Darrow goggles, but all in all I was stupid. I did vow to myself...
My Boss is Sort of Starting to Get It
Jimmy: Who hugged you (In reference to my facebook status)
Me: Dorothea Lasky. She's my favorite poet ever
Jimmy: Yeah, I wikipedia-ed her, and I was like 'what poet, psh, of course Liz would be excited about hugging a poet.

Lessons from James Tate Reading
If you’re ancient, have published twenty books of poetry, and have won the Pulitzer you can talk about llamas, beating your ostrich grandmother with a baseball bat, and conversing with your dead mother about cookies, and end about each piece with “I don’t know” and you’re audience will think you’re wonderful. I am no exception. James Tate is awesome and I hope...

Re-Reading "Sense and Sensibility"
Not that I really remember much of it because the last time I read it I was fourteen and stupid, but it has come to my attention, however, that in the past six months I have transformed from more of Marianne to an Elinor. Of course I still speak my mind excessively, and have a love for literature, music and poetry and kind of detest taciturn people with no personalities or character, but my...

I’m here and my family is falling to pieces. My best friend is in Uganda with fucking Malaria. If I don’t laugh I’ll cry. Kenna, I love you so much.
My Thoughts on the GOP Presidential Debate Last...
I am a staunch Democrat, however, I’m not closed minded. Since moving to Massachusetts I have found that Liberalism in massive numbers is almost as mind numbingly stupid as the the mass Conservatism of the South that I experienced in North Carolina. This being said, I turned on the debate last night with a little optimism. Be Republican or Democrat, no one can deny that the current situation...
