- I have more books than shelf space. I am a gifted napper. I most frequently list 'writing,' 'traveling', and 'shiny objects' as favorite things. I grew up in Texas, but everyone thinks I'm from New England (and I did live there for ten years). I came to LA to get a graduate degree, and now that I've got it, I'm confused.

I went away for a little bit because I was afraid of telling truths that were hard for me and I was scared that I was not strong enough to sustain them. Hell, I was scared that they were stupid truths and I was stupid and weak for sharing them.
I know -… Read full post »
The truth is that I love eating, and the hampering of that experience feels like some depletion of life’s vibrancy. I eat as much as I do because of how much I enjoy the taste of food, the texture of it in my mouth, on my tongue, the… Read full post »
Currently, what I want is food. Preferably a cake-y kind of food, some lovely confection of sugar, flour, and whatever else is needed, but it can vary based on my mood. There was a time, in the not too distant past, when I not only knew this desire was a… Read full post »

People on the airplane (including me) clapped… Read full post »
Last night, sitting on the couch with my boyfriend, I shifted in annoyance. He was resting his hand on my stomach, and it made me uncomfortable. I didn't understand why he was doing it, why he wanted to draw attention to this massive flaw when I had other, perfectly respectable body… Read full post »
The first time I shopped at plus-sized clothing store was at the Cambridgeside Galleria in Boston some time in my mid-twenties. I circled around the idea, hovered near the store on multiple occasions. I passed it, trying to look in the window without appearing as if I were looking in the… Read full post »
I believed I was a fat girl years before I became one. As soon as I hit puberty, I was convinced of my disproportion. I was unseemly, lumpy, hulking over my peers. In science class in sixth grade, I stood in lab one day, working on an experiment and listening in… Read full post »
