Some things about me?
- I pretty much need to pee all the time
- I enjoy a specific type of zero calorie wild cherry soda, which is only sold at one grocery store chain (these might be related)
- I Love Facts of Life and had hundreds of episodes saved however last night my husband accidentally deleted them so we’re getting a divorce
- I still think it’s weird I’m married because for the longest time I was single and very much consumed with finding a healthy relationship while also suspecting focusing too hard on it would push it away and just in general thinking too much about it while trying not to think about it
- Recently started eating Truvia plain. This can’t be good.
- I’m a late bloomer but started writing professionally very young. How dichotomous!
- I have a dog named Wendy whom I love.
- I am battling infertility and trying to get pregnant doing IVF which is a whole thing which I’m open about despite the fact most women I know keep that shit locked away. I get strength from talking about it and I hope it makes others who are experiencing it feel less alone.
- I was born in Oakland which I like to mention because it gives me cred.
- I have naturally black hair.
- Farts? Hilarious!
