“Do you want to join in?” The blond who had introduced himself as Carlisle offered. 

The corners of your mouth lifted into a small smile. “I don’t know that I’d be any good. It’s been a while.” 

“How long’s a while?” Asked the honey blond with the southern accent… Jasper, you reminded yourself, his name is Jasper.

“Late 1800s…or thereabouts.” You replied with a smile. “I sorta lose track of the years. After the end of the War of Northern Aggression in any case.” You put a hand to your mouth, embarrassed by your slip of the tongue. “Sorry, the Civil War they call it now right?” 

“You’re from the south?” Jasper asked, eyes dancing with emotion. 

You pressed your lips together, suppressing a grin. “Huston Texas, born raised and bitten. Are we playing or what?” 

It was Jaspers turn to look embarrassed. “Sure thing darlin’ as long as we can talk more later.” 

The large one, Emmett, grinned so widely his dimples showed. “Well now Jazz, you didn’t show this much interest in me when you found out I was from Tennessee. I’m hurt.” He held one large hand to his unbeating heart. 

“Emmett. Shut up.” 

“And he calls himself a southern gentleman…” 


This game was looking like it might end up a lot of fun after all.

Who are you?

A Vietnamese Montréalais Cali-Texan navigating the seas of boredom and singledom.  I’m defined by my tank tops, awkward overbite, and alarming love for Sex & the City.  I also enjoy occasional walks to the pub–reminiscent of my UCLA undergrad days.

Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Montréal; but immigrated to California a while back for school.  Texas is my current home: I relocated last year for work.

What do you do?

I’m a fourth grade teacher by daylight and Johns Hopkins graduate student by moonlight.  I’m pursuing an MS in Education to expand my teaching practice and widen my impact within the education system.

What are you passionate about?

Creative writing.  When I was an ELL student in California, I carried a French-English dictionary around to write poetry (and learn English) during recess.  I fell in love with Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein: I’d rehearse, rewrite, and read their poems to my teachers and interventionists.  Though my words were limited, my thoughts were infinite.  

At UCLA, an Asian American Studies course introduced me to API playwrights who used creative writing as a means for navigating social consciousnesses.  Their works inspired me to further venture into poetry.

What is your dream job (real or fantasy)?

After a few more years in Texas, I see myself settled back in California.  My dream job is to teach English or social studies in a Catholic high school, where I’ll have the avenue to explore my Catholic identity as well.  

If you could change the world with one idea, what would it be?

“Qui n’avance pas, recule.“
           – ” Those who do not move forward, recede”.

Because Sri Lanka lies just off the southern tip of India, people wrongly assume its cuisine is identical to that of its sprawling neighbor to the north. Spices are the hallmark of both countries’ cuisines, but where Indian recipes often call for frying whole spices in oil, Sri Lankans roast and grind the same spices. Most Sri Lankan kitchens are equipped with grinding stones for just this purpose. And the farther south you go, the hotter the curry.

Though Texas-born and Maryland-raised, S.H. Fernando, Jr. grew up on the Sri Lankan curries his mother cooked. Here is his crab curry recipe. always made extra hot—Sri Lankan hot

Reya is a lesbian born and raised in Texas by a single white mother. It was absolute hell. At the first chance she got, Reya moved to Southern California to get a degree in Zoology. Now she lives in a little apartment with her roommate Carinna and her cat Monty. When some classmates talk about a witch moving into town, opening up her own shop, Reya’s curiosity is piqued. The witch she meets, Toralei, immediately captures her attention and heart, and they make a deal with each other. But will it really just be that one deal, or do both of them have something else that they want?

So I revamped my story Bubblegum Bewitched and here we have: Ulterior Motives !! if yall could read it, tell me what you think, reblog this post it would be super nice!!!

After taking a rather safe picture at DallasCon with Jared, I wanted something a little different with him at HoustonCon. And I figured since he’s a born and raised Texas boy, and I’m a born and raised Texas girl, that he really knows how to two-step.
So, when the time for my photo-op came, I walked right up to him and after saying hello I looked at him and asked with a dumb shy smile, “Would you two-step with me?”
He smiled so big you guys, and was like “Oh hell yeah!” He literally grabbed- no yanked me by my waist so that I was 100% pressed against him, y'know, like you would two-step normally (he literally leads so well, gosh what I’d give to dance a Johnny Cash song with him gosh gosh gosh) and after Chris snapped the picture he looked at me and smiled while telling me “Thank you so much (while doing the adorable blowing kisses thing he does where he uses both hands), I’m really so happy you asked for that, I love it!” And as I walked away all I could say was “You’re literally the best!”

It’s all NEW

I was born and raised in a small town in Texas. Most of my friends in my graduating class went to public schools in- you guessed it- Texas. Not me though. I ended up about 20 hours away from my home without ever having been away from my parents for more than a week (to camp 45 minutes away). So why did I go so far away from home for college you ask? The answer it not what you’d expect. I didn’t want to be far away from home. I didn’t want to be able to do whatever I wanted. I didn’t want to get away from family. I wanted to go to a school that had the most amazing Christian Community I’d ever seen. 

So I get here and it is the most amazing community I’ve ever been in. My floor is amazing, I love my roommate, and the events are creative and plentiful. So a check goes in the social box. World-renowned Christian intellectuals are coming to speak to us constantly. So a check goes in the academic box. We have chapel 3 times a week and I joined 3 small group bible studies that I am growing to love. So check the faith box.

Everything was perfect… I was miserable. My first few weeks of college were characterized by a lack of a secure identity, a discontentment with interest in my classes, a jealously of the quickly budding friendships around me, and a sudden upsurge of guilt from the past coming back to haunt me. It wasn’t the easy transition that everyone I knew was expecting me to have. I was actually experiencing doubt and drought in my spiritual life that was juxtaposing the christian environment I was in. The thing was, everything was new- and I didn’t know how to handle it. I thought that I could be this new person that I felt like I was meant to be without anyone knowing anything about my weaknesses. That sentiment resulted in the hiding of my true self so that the people I met only saw what I wanted them to. I only knew what my faith and identity looked like in the context of Texas while living under my parent’s roof. I’d never had to deal with newness or transition before this point. 

Thankfully, one night, God gave me the strength to be vulnerable. I shared with a few women what I was going through, and saying it started the healing process. I found that in order to love others and for them to love me, I had to be honest with them about who I was and what my life was like. I had to not just confess my sins, but stop letting guilt rule me and accept grace. Since then, I have friendships that have grown exponentially. I am so excited to be in a place that’s new because I realized that everything isn’t new. God’s love for me has always been steadfast and his grace for my mistakes has always been abundant. I finally learned what it meant to trust on him when you don’t have anyone else. My situations change and even I change, but God never does. I am being redeemed and restored just like Colossians 3 says. Who knows where I’ll be tomorrow? 

To love is to be vulnerable. -C.S. Lewis 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. -2 Corinthians 12:9

Time Machine Video of the Week

Elliott Smith - Coming Up Roses (1995)

Well time for this weeks Time Machine, i am posting Elliott Smith as it would have been his 47th birthday, yesterday August 6th. Elliott was in my opinion the greatest singer / songwriter of his generation. His death in 2003, was so devastating. Reb

Steven Paul (Elliott) Smith was an American singer / songwriter,  born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas. He was born on 6th August 1969, and was sadly taken from us on 21st October 2003. After playing in the indie  rock band Heatmiser, who released three albums. Smith began his solo career in 1994. 

Coming Up Roses is taken from Smith’s second studio album, Elliott Smith, which was released on 21st July 21 1995. The release was preceded by the single, Needle in the Hay, which was the albums lead track. Coming Up Roses was the closing track on side one, of this 12 track album.

I’m a junkyard full of false starts
And I don’t need your permission
To bury my love
Under this bare light bulb
The moon is a sickle cell
It’ll kill you in time
Your cold white brother all right in your blood
Like spun glass in sore eyes
While the moon does its division, you’re buried below
And you’re coming up roses everywhere you go
Red roses follow
The things that you tell yourself
They’ll kill you in time
Your cold white brother alive in your blood
Spinning in the night sky
While the moon does its division, you’re buried below
And you’re coming up roses everywhere you go
Red roses
So you got in a kind of trouble that nobody knows
It’s coming up roses everywhere you go
Red roses

Mya Taylor - Investigative

Bio: Mya Taylor is an actress born and raised in Houston, Texas. In addition to her starring role in Sundance breakout hit Tangerine, she also collaborated heavily with the director on everything from pre- to post-production, from the vernacular of the script to the arc of the plot. Mya plays Marsha Johnson in Happy Birthday Marsha! a highly anticipated film following legendary best friends, Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera the night of the Stonewall Riots. 

“The new movie follows the life of Marsha P. Johnson, who helped start the Stonewall riots. So she’s a very iconic person and I’m very proud of the role. I did a lot of studying of the real Johnson for that role. I met a few of her friends. They came to set. I studied her voice to sound exactly like her. Her friends say it’s eerie because it’s spot-on. … There’s a movement that’s going on and I’m glad to be a part of it. I do see other opportunities now. People are more comfortable with transgender performers. I think this movie is taking that in the right direction. But there’s still a lot of work to do.”
