The Grand Inquisition

Note: Don't forget to follow my continuing journey on my personal blog, So about what I said.. I've come to dread a seven-word question. I call it the Grand Inquisition because, literally, that’s what it feels like. I’m sitting in a courtroom on the witness stand, poised to speak the whole truth and nothing but the truth to a jury – a jury that, as I glance in their direction, seem intent on staring me down. The jury, you probably guessed, is my peers. But why I always seem to be on trial isn’t so easy a question to answer, at least for me. The judging. The assumptions. The constant questioning. Truthfully, it all starts to take its toll after awhile. And why this question holds so much power and leads to such badgering is, quite frankly, beyond me.

Four Words that describe my love life

Four Words that describe my love life

When I posted these four words to describe my love life, it describes my entire love life. My love life, if you could call it that started way too early, way before I was ready for any relationships with "boys", so that's one of the main reasons for the sadness and loneliness. I had it all screwed up in my mind thinking that sex was what love was, so it was pretty crazy. I wanted to use the word confusing also, but those were the most accurate four words.

The One Night Stand Between Friends...

The Human Experience The One Night Stand between friends… Its just Sex, right? It’s complicated. What are friends for? I’m sure we have all either been fucked over by a friend or even been on the giving end. So, why not fuck our friends-at least everyone comes out on top-so to speak.

Bridging Womanhood with a Physical Disability

Note: As always, you can continue to follow my journey of life and love with a physical disability on my personal blog So about what I said... I’m many things to many people: daughter, sister, friend, coworker, quirky comedian. All these parts of me harmoniously exist together; in fact, people are amazed at the sheer fact that I don’t topple over from wearing all these different hats. So when I recently tried to seamlessly insert just two more ‘dimensions’ of myself, I couldn’t help but feel a bit of resistance. Eyebrows raised. Noses scrunched. People stood utterly perplexed by my recent admission, as if I were speaking a foreign language.The two pieces of me: My womanhood and my physical disability. Oooh, the two most polar opposite things in the world [insert sarcasm]. The two, it seemed, could never, ever, under any circumstances, intersect, or, as people have led me to believe, the entire universe would implode.

5 Reasons Every Woman Should Love Soccer

5 Reasons Every Woman Should Love Soccer

The planet has been consumed by World Cup Fever, but you’d barely know it from life in the US.  Most Americans will tell you soccer is boring and wholly uninteresting because it takes so long for anyone to score.  But I’m here to tell you those people are wrong.  In fact, if you’re a woman, this game was made for you.  Here’s why: 5.  Va Va Voom Soccer has two 45-minute periods with a 15-minute break in between.  Once the clock starts, it doesn’t stop.  No wimpy time-outs, no bringing proceedings to a halt if players get hurt, no bratty coaches interrupting to throw hissy fits.  The players go until time runs out. A field full of men who can sustain vigorous physical activity for ninety minutes straight?  Goal! Besides, any knucklehead can catch or throw a ball, and with enough practice, lob it into a hole. But can you bounce one off your foot, upper body or head and send it sixty yards into a net?  Me either.
