Law and Disorder

October 24, 2012


One Saturday night, my friend Fiona invited me to a party hosted by her friend Sara. Though I didn’t know anyone there, and had only met Sara a couple times, I assumed there would be plenty of eligible bachelors. (Sara had recently started law school. Cha ching!)

The Break Up

June 15, 2012


Here’s a little tale that I’m still bitter about even though it went down a couple years back: My friend Laura invited me to come along to a party at her friend Jordan’s house.

The Case of the Kissing Girl

June 8, 2012


This tale is one of voyeurism. I, Raz, witnessed a stranger’s awkward experience with a man and decided to share. This was also an awkward experience for me.
