Today is the greatest

Day I’ve ever known

Can’t live for tomorrow,

Tomorrow’s much too long

I’ll burn my eyes out

Before I get out

I wanted more

Than life could ever grant me

Bored by the chore

Of saving face

– Smashing Pumpkins

It’s been so, so very long since I last posted.

People ask me why I don’t write much anymore. I don’t really have much of a response. Am I uninspired? I’m not sure. I have stared at my computer screen countless times, started hundreds of sentences, and left many pages blank. Maybe I just don’t have much to say?

But I do.

A lot has happened over the past few months. Read More

I needed a break.

I needed to take a breather and focus on some things that were weighing heavily on my soul. Read More

I just wanna stay in the sun where I find

I know it’s hard sometimes

Pieces of peace in the sun’s peace of mind

I know it’s hard sometimes

Yeah, I think about the end just way too much

But it’s fun to fantasize

All my enemies who wouldn’t wish who I was

But it’s fun to fantasize

Oh, oh

I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride

Oh, I’m falling so I’m taking my time on my ride

Taking my time on my ride

– Twenty One Pilots


I write to you from the rooftop of my apartment.

All I Do Is Win
Posted 3 August 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Domestic Diva/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

All I do is win win win no matter what

Got money on my mind, I can never get enough

And every time I step up in the building

Everybody hands go UP

And they stay there, and they stay there

And they stay there – up down up down up down

Cause all I do is WIN, WIN, WIN

And if you goin in put yo’ hands in the air, make ’em stay there!

– DJ Khaled

She’s open waiting for more

And I know he’s only looking to score

And it is way too unhealthy often they’ve typically

Been starved for attention before

– Blink 182

Dangerous Woman
Posted 7 July 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

Don’t need permission

Made my decision to test my limits

‘Cause it’s my business, God as my witness

Start what I finished

Don’t need no hold up

Taking control of this kind of moment

I’m locked and loaded

Completely focused, my mind is open

– Ariana Grande


Getting up before a certain time in the morning makes me physically ill, or even worse… weepy. Read More

Sun lights up the daytime, moon lights up the night

I light up when you call my name, and you know I’m gonna treat you right

You give me fever – when you kiss me, fever when you hold me tight

Fever – in the the morning, fever all through the night.

– Elvis Presley feat. Michael Bublé

Girl Crush
Posted 7 June 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

I got a girl crush, hate to admit it but

I got a heart rush, ain’t slowin’ down

I got it real bad, want everything she has

That smile and the midnight laugh she’s givin’ you now

I wanna taste her lips, yeah, ‘cause they taste like you

I wanna drown myself in a bottle of her perfume

I want her long blonde hair, I want her magic touch

Yeah, ‘cause maybe then you’d want me just as much

I got a girl crush, I got a girl crush

– Little Big Town


I was supposed to be in Barcelona on Friday. Read More

Needed Me
Posted 2 June 2016 / By MC / Archives/ Featured/ Miss Clariss Musings

But baby, don’t get it twisted

You was just another nigga on the hit list

Tryna fix your inner issues with a bad bitch

Didn’t they tell you that I was a savage

Fuck your white horse and a carriage

Bet you never could imagine

Never told you could have it

You needed me

Oooh, you needed me

Feel a little more, and give a little less

Know you hate to confess

But baby who, you needed me

– Rihanna

I’ve read some of those really nice letters other bloggers have written and posted on the internet. A lot of them are sort of a “New User’s Guide” to loving my old lover. They are often times friendly and overly pleasant. As I read through most of these posts, I get the feeling the writer is penning a note to a fellow book club, or Sunday school, or yoga class member. The words are sweet, kind, and thoughtful.

I have a feeling this letter will not read exactly like the ones mentioned above.

You will probably not find it friendly, or pleasant, or sweet, or kind.

However, I have thought long and hard about this message. I hope you do too. Read More
