I’m living my dream…

Just 5 hours. That’s how long ago it was since I left the Big Apple. I feel different. I feel like a bitch, a snob. You would never believe THOSE words coming out of my mouth, would you? New York changes people. There’s no foul play in this state. It’s filled with corporations slashing the others throats and women…

I’m with the big boys now!

A year ago at this moment in time I was beginning the first half of my senior year in college. I had 4 classes that were extremely difficult. I complained & hated not being able to do anything except homework. I stayed in my room for hours upon hours mostly reading useless material that wouldn’t…

Our Three-Month Anniversary.

The flowers he got me. January 22, 2013. I’m gearing up to see him on our 3-month anniversary. It’s been almost a week since our last encounter & I miss him like crazy. As I’m fixing my hair & make-up in the bathroom, I hear my mother say, Hey —–! [I don’t want to post his name]….

A Spring 2013 day.

The sun is illuminating & bright in the sky. It smells of flowers and the grass appears to be greener than usual, the birds are chirping loudly up above. Everything is blossoming & vibrant. Fast forward to Spring 2013. Him & I visit the local park, hold hands & eat our frozen yogurt at the…

I miss keeping busy.

Antsy & Impatient. Literally, that’s how I’ve been lately. I’m just waiting for something to happen. An email or phone call for a job. A text to get out of the house & babysit or one from my boyfriend stating that he feels better. Something completely random and out of the ordinary is what I’m…

6 days & counting.

6 days. Not a long time right? But, anything can happen in six days. A family member could pass, you could wreck your car, you could obtain a new job, you could become someone’s significant other, you could pass your driver’s exam, ANYTHING. That’s how long it’s been since I’ve seen my boyfriend. Such a…

2013: Big Changes.

I guess I’m terrified to move forward with my life. I’m scared to let go of the past and move on. I can’t shake the thought of not going back to school. You have no clue how badly I want to run away from the present. I want my relationship with my new boyfriend to…

William Davis’s “Wheat Belly”: You mean wheat is bad?!

BY    Hope Kumor Evidently I was informed that wheat is bad for you. You have no idea the pain and agony I went through when I learned this tidbit, this fact. You see, I love wheat products such as bagels, pasta and cereal. Even though I’m very conscious about my calorie intake and often…

It was just a worrisome night!

He sits there in a groggy state of mind laying his head on my shoulder. I know that he needs to go, he has to go because I don’t want him falling asleep at the wheel. The worst thing about our relationship is the hour drive front & back. Along with the gas, there’s tolls….

He makes it better.

With a glow in his eyes, he shares with me, I like where we’re at. He is pertaining to our relationship of course! On January 22nd, it will be 3 months for the boyfriend & I and I couldn’t be happier. He makes me feel special, beautiful, wonderful, smart & worthy. Instead of seeing each other on…

What’s so special about me?

BY  Hope Kumor What’s so special about me? you ask yourself as you gaze into the mirror for the fourth time this morning. You don’t have the looks, the personality, the body or anything for that matter. Rather, you feel like you’re unworthy of the opposite sex because you lack confidence and constantly insult yourself. You…

2013: Don’t plan that relationship.

BY    Hope Kumor You see all your friends with their boyfriends hand and hand, arm and arm walking through Central Park. How romantic you think to yourself through grunted teeth. You’re jealous and you don’t want her to know it. Sound familiar? Now-a-days, most people have a significant other and it’s not fair to…
