hi. i'm sarah. (she/her)
and I have no idea what I'm doing.
No, really. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. No clue. None. Zip. Zilch. But I also strongly believe that nobody really does. Anyone who tells you they have it all figured out is ~lying.
I was inspired to start writing by a handful of people I respect and admire that I have somehow managed to trick into being my friends. There is absolutely nothing that would qualify me to offer any sort of definitive guidance. All I can offer you is sharing my experiences and the moments in my life that I feel have defined who I am and what I taken with me. Perhaps more importantly, what I have left behind.
I am a twenty something artist living in New York City, striving for perfection and constantly missing the mark. I love my dog, I'm a big fan of French pastries, and I am powered by Diet Coke. I struggle with anxiety and depression. I like to muse on politics and mental health, and talk about the philosophy of being a human in a world that so often tries to dictate who we are. I want to have discussions and invite my peers and friends to open discussions of their own so I can learn how to be better. A better friend. A better ally. A better human being. I'm not here to offer advice, or tell you who to be, in fact, I am completely and absolutely unqualified to do that. I am just here to share my experiences in hopes that it might start a discussion or make someone else feel not so alone. And maaaaybe I can make you laugh too.
