please plugt me in

I push a button and everything syncs. My music, my photos, everything goes where it;’s supposed to go and if it doesn’t it can be moved there. Sometimes it’s even easier and my device connect wirelessly and syne to some mysteriously cloud in the sky. It gets very Matrix-y. I want to plug my life in. I [...]

even though it’s not november

It would be easy to be angry. This wasn’t the life I expected to have. I didn’t expect to face my uncertain future in a wheelchair with a stroke-effected appearance and a prison of my own body. It would be SO easy to be angry. I work hard to stay thankful. In spite of my [...]

a day I remember

In 2008 she was a part of an event called “Fashion Funds The Cure” that benefits the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

When I learned to let go of the safety grab bar by the toilet so I could pull down my clothes I felt a supreme satisfaction. It was a mental battle to put faith in something I couldn’t feel. I trusted my leg to hold me up and learned to rely on the familiar routine [...]

It’s a good thing I’m ok with getting felt up in public in public because the security check I have to go through with TSA is borderline second base.

traveling with @RobinPlemmons

Robin and I have traveled together several times. Each trip has been it’s own voyage of hilarity. We have moments that can only be described as bizarre perfection. In In New Orleans I couldn’t find my phone so Robin called it. It had slipped out of my bra where I kept it hidden and I’d forgotten I’d set my ringtone for her calls [...]

the difference between a UN Social Good Fellow and @ShotatLife Champion was finally explained to me

So yeah. I didn’t quite get how I didn’t get the difference until someone asked what the difference was and I realized how stupid I sounded trying to explain something I really didn’t understand.
