Really grateful to Huffpost for letting me share my story about how my mid-life epilepsy diagnosis altered the speed in which I process speech and find the language to reply.
I’m a huge fan of March Xness. I’m so honored they chose to feature my essay on “Faith” alongside their March Faxness Tournament, which focused on cover songs. Also, this image they made for it is the visual mashup I never knew I needed. Enjoy!
Thanks again to the editors of Memoir Mixtapes for including this essay on adolescence, road trips, wonder, and…well, misery. Hope you enjoy reading more than I enjoyed doing just about anything at age 14!
My essay on Lit’s “Miserable” will be in the next volume of Memoir Mixtapes. I’ve had the opportunity to work with them twice before, and the editors are such a great crew of folks. One of the co-founders just had a baby and a job change, and is still working hard at showcasing the writing of others. Amazing people, and very grateful to have their support of my work. In the meantime, definitely check out their previous volumes, which even come with a Spotify playlist to listen along to as you read.
