I’m Trying to Get Through Winter, But I Desperately Need Help.

There are exactly 37 days, 4 hours, and 20 minutes until spring. Obviously, by the time this is posted on Tova & Wild that time will be cut down by a few days, hours, and/or minutes. Needless to say, I hate winter. I don’t like the cold, I don’t like the rain, I don’t likeContinue reading “I’m Trying to Get Through Winter, But I Desperately Need Help.”

I’m Trying to Work Through My Own Political Apathy

As a millennial, I feel like one of the most defining moments in my life was the day I watched a seventeen-year-old Emma Gonzalez speak at the March for Our Lives Protest in Washington, DC after the shooting that killed 17 students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. I remember watching herContinue reading “I’m Trying to Work Through My Own Political Apathy”

The Friendship Issue

I’m Getting a Divorce from Inspiration

The more that I have given myself to writing and my creative ventures, the more I realize that inspiration is a fucking myth. Context: I had a moment last month where I realized all of August had gone to shit all because I wasn’t inspired and didn’t have a muse, I stumbled through my goalsContinue reading “I’m Getting a Divorce from Inspiration”

Answering the Call

Welcome to September, The Purpose Issue After driving around to three coffee shops this morning, trying to find a seat at a table to “look pretentious,” as Carrie Bradshaw puts it, and pen the great American novel, I finally found a spot, right next to a charger, in the corner, beside an open window. IContinue reading “Answering the Call”

August is Officially the Worst Month Ever

If August taught me anything, it’s that the best laid plans of mice and men, oft’ go awry. Remember that old saying by Robert Burns you were forced to learn in Literature class in third grade? ‘No.’ Just me? August has taught me exactly that. As intentional as you want to be and as optimisticContinue reading “August is Officially the Worst Month Ever”

I am What I Say That I am

For whatever reason, a memory came up the other night of a moment where I was on a date, with a now ex, when a woman came up to our table and started gasping. Clearly intoxicated, she was staring, gasping, and struggling to form words when she finally introduced herself as a psychic—then proceeding toContinue reading “I am What I Say That I am”

Making Sense of Myself

I have been sitting cross-legged for about ten minutes sipping iced coffee staring at a blank screen constantly being reminded by WordPress with a large red blocked statement reading, “You haven’t written anything yet!” Yes, WordPress, I am completely aware of the fact that I have yet to write anything—it’s your problem, because? Since, IContinue reading “Making Sense of Myself”

Love Handles, S1 E11: Just Checkin’ In

This week’s episode of Love Handles is sort all over the place. It’s the first time in a long time that I decided to stick my head into le sound booth without a clear idea of what I would say once I was in there. This has happened, maybe once before, but once I sat downContinue reading “Love Handles, S1 E11: Just Checkin’ In”

15 Attempts at Getting Your Shit Together

April is coming to a close, literally, in like a day, and hopefully, you are either one step closer to having your shit together—or if you are like me, you are probably flailing in the wind somewhere. If I’ve learned anything this month, I have learned that getting one’s shit together is both idealistic andContinue reading “15 Attempts at Getting Your Shit Together”

Love Handles, S1E9: Get Your Sh** Together

That’s right folks, you heard it here, first. After hibernating for the winter, it’s (un)officially time to get everything else in our lives together so that we can enter into the summer months full speed ahead. I mean, its already April 12th, so the month is almost halfway through, but that doesn’t mean that itContinue reading “Love Handles, S1E9: Get Your Sh** Together”

Love Handles, S1 E7: The Rebel Without A Cause

This week’s episode of Love Handles is pretty weird: I recorded it on my recently purchased microphone with a slight hangover from simply not drinking enough water the day before, after procrastinating for like, a week to finally make it, and yet, it is an episode about productivity and accomplishments. I know that sounds rather paradoxical,Continue reading “Love Handles, S1 E7: The Rebel Without A Cause”
