Thanks for reading, and welcome to my page.

I started blogging a few years ago because I love to write, and I wanted an outlet for sharing some of the things I had written.

Since I relocated back to my hometown, I also wanted a way to connect to other people (and writers!) in the city (not sure how blogging was supposed to do that though). Haha.

I grew up in Houston, but I lived in Chicago for about twelve years right after college. Returning home after living there for so long has been an unexpected struggle.

I live in the city with my partner V (an artist and an art teacher) and our dog, Biscuits.

If you’re interested, you can find V’s artwork here and here:

Some of my writing focuses on education because I’ve been in the field for a few years, and I’ve had a range of roles and experiences (5th grade teacher, long-term sub, Title I tutor, ESL teacher, GED teacher, Life Skills and Computer Literacy instructor for adults, IELTS tutor, conversation partner, Adult Education Program Manager, college advisor, scholarship coach, etc.).

This blog is about anger and productivity. I tend to write about education, race, and money the most because these things make me the angriest.

I’d love to learn more about your perspectives too.
