The Weight of the Hours

So I haven’t written in over 600 days. There are many reasons and excuses behind my inactivity on this website, from failing to focus on my YouTube channel to investing more energy into my day job as well as going to therapy after several depressive episodes. I won’t address the latter in too much detail […]

Two Truths and a Lie

Two Truths and a Lie

Unless you’ve been living under a rock—or maybe you’re just one of my French readers, in which case this story has been incredibly absent from the news—you have heard about Rachel Dolezal and how she presented herself as a black woman for 10 years and was recently outed by her parents as a white woman […]

The Sexperiment

The reason I have been away for almost two months now is that I’ve been busy getting laid, all for a personal and sociosexual investigation that I’ve baptized “The Sexperiment”. Frankly, I hesitated writing this piece for a little while—what with my mom reading my blog and my students online-stalking me—but I have come to […]

It Was a Short Winter, Charlie Hebdo

When I was a child, my father used to keep copies of Charlie Hebdo hidden in the house, because he didn’t want my brother nor I to be exposed to the dirty cartoons the paper was known for.

It’s been almost four weeks since my last post —holidays obligent— and it might as well have been forever since it was published literally last year. Speaking of which, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE HOW IS THAT HANGOVER WEARING OFF. Today, I want to talk about myself, because that’s never a bad idea.

Light-Skinned Times Lie Ahead

Sometimes I’m scared of crossing a boundary with my students when we discuss controversial topics. We’ve worked on American Indian issues, the representation of Muslims and the stigmatization of Ebonics, and I often fear that my own bias on those issues might just steer the conversation in one direction, without any room for debate.

Rip the Band Aid Off

I FUCKING LOVE CHRISTMAS. Well, to be more accurate, I love the Christmas season. I try to be decent about it and wait until the day after Thanksgiving before I lose it completely to the evil Christmas spirit, but the few weeks leading up to Christmas are probably the only time of the year where […]

I Just Have a Lot of Reasons

Yesterday morning, I woke up to the delightful surprise of reaching over 500 likes on the Facebook page for I Just Have a Lot of Feelings. And in honor of this milestone, I wanted to talk a bit more about why it is important for me to write, and why I write about the things […]
