 Angel in 2001, the week of her adoption.

September 20, 2001: Angel’s adoption day.  September 20, 2019: Angel’s death. 

I’m profoundly saddened to announce that Angel’s heart stopped beating at 2:24 a.m this morning. Angel had a medical emergency late Thursday nigh...

I’m not going to sit here and pretend that my long-distance relationship is rainbows and butterflies because it’s been tough; my partner is my best friend. We went from seeing each other three to four days a week to not seeing each other for weeks at a time.

I promised...

Leaving Chicago’s blistering cold and blinding snow to land in a place of mountains, cactuses and desert sand was a shock. Granted, when my partner and I landed, it was dark; we couldn’t see a thing. But here’s the thing: when we pulled into the driveway of the Airbnb,...

     Truth be told, I don't even know why I still wake up in the morning and think that when I step outside of my apartment that I will have a normal, average day. Maybe I'm optimistic, maybe I'm ignorant, maybe I'm just straight-up unlucky when it comes to encounterin...

     It was a Monday night and one of my best friends, Ana, had one more day in Chicago before she returned back to New York City. Her and I are two peas in a pod, so naturally, I wanted to meet up with her and Sylvia in Pilsen to spend sometime together....

     My first day in Minneapolis, Minnesota sent me into a complete culture shock. I'm talking about a total surge to the senses that left me in utter disbelief. When I landed in the airport, I went straight to the baggage carousel, grabbed my duffle bag, and went outs...
