Column: My terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

Although it often feels more like a curse, the ability to feel things so deeply is, truthfully, a blessing in disguise. In a world without struggle, the joy I feel when I’m laughing with friends, playing with my dog or taking that first bite of a Cosmic quesadilla wouldn’t be nearly as profound.

Column: SOS I don't have a crush anymore!

Today I finally let go of my crush. I gave him one last hug, smiled and nodded farewell. After he left, a new sensation arrived. Equally as crushing as before, but without the erratic oscillations between ecstatic joys and infuriating lows. Just a crushingly static sobriety. The moment I didn’t have someone to think about, I missed the feeling of having someone to think about.

Column: From one dysfunctional family to another
