Spring Awakening is a project that has come together over the course of two months.
Inspired by my friend Eugene who asked me, “What are you doing for YOU?”, I realized I was in need of renewal, in need of a Spring Awakening.
For the next two weeks, Diary of a Gay Spinster will be in full force, as I share the stories of my own Spring Awakening. Hopefully, I can inspire more people to spread love, live young and BE BOLD.

What will it take for us to stop feeling so ashamed about our bodies?
On multiple occasions, I have found myself looking at the mirror, pulling and pushing at different body parts, struggling to imagine what my body would look like if I could just lose at least 15 pounds.

And while my floods of Vote Kramer 2014 promotional photos and campaign t-shirt selfies have received a nice number of likes, I’m sure you’re probably still wondering why I care so much. Read More
You can call me an optimist, but I like to think I’m just hopeful.
I find that losing yourself and finding yourself is one of the greatest human experiences we could ever endure. There’s something about self-awareness that fascinates me so much.
You can also call me self-involved, but I like to think I’m just in touch with who I am. Read More

I woke up sad this morning because I felt like I had no one to love.
It had been a long year of trials and tribulations, but at this point I felt like I knew less than ever before. It took me a long time to get out of bed this morning but it took me even longer to make a decision. I wore what I wore yesterday because it didn’t matter and that’s how my morning went. This blueness makes me soft so I proceeded with delicacy at this time. During the day you are more aware of yourself and the way your body fills up space, the more the day is usually filled with challenges. Read More
