When I started writing this post, it was gonna be a full on rant, but I took some time to reflect and decided I could either be a shell of a person, miserable and broken, OR I could appreciate the good and positive experiences and make this a moment of gratitude.Continue reading “Change your mindset: Rae’s Violet Adventures”
When I wrote this title, I was thinking of a Brent Faiyaz song. What I’m writing about has nothing to do with any of that, though.
The four of us only knew each other for one month, yet it felt so much longer. We met at a coffee shop with maybe 40 other people. We were strangers amongst an even larger group of strangers, then we exchanged numbers and made plans for karaoke.Continue reading “One month, one month ONLY?”
Let me take you back to where it started, when I re-downloaded dating apps for the who-knows-what-number time. It seems so long ago. February 2020 was, QUITE LITERALLY, the beginning of a different time.

She sent me this guy’s profile who she was cracking up over because of his haircut and something in his profile. I was disappointed to realize I couldn’t see the account and laugh without a profile.

On July 18, I went to one of the spots that’s said to have some of the best margaritas in SATX– La Gloria in the Pearl. I went alone because I had no one to go with me, but I was really determined to get a margarita before I leave here. As I sat there sipping my margarita and the minutes went by, I realized something.

I felt let down by all the people (3 in particular) who had recommended these places to me and were now ghosting me or straight up ignoring me to my face. So I decided once I got home, this would be my last solo outing while I’m here.
*Spoiler alert: it wasn’t really my last “solo adventure”*
