Hi, I’m Lauren.  I wish I had a cooler name to give you. I’m a writer, except I live in a perpetual, never-ending state of writer’s block. I don’t actively try to get anything published (because like any authentic, self-deprecating creative I think my work is shit, blah blah), but maybe that will change some day. I’m living on the edge of 30, and I have two cats that really get my vibe. I’m a vegetarian except I really like fish tacos and also sushi. So that either makes me a hypocrite or a semi-pescatarian. I live in Oak Park, IL. Ninety-five percent of the time, I have absolutely no clue what I’m doing or why I’m here. Or why I just can’t seem to get it together. If you’d like to follow along on my journey to somethingness, I welcome you, friend.
