The Renter knew that he must confront the Dispute over The Agreement. He had said that he would, ‘and he would, then.’ Hours had passed, now, somehow, since he had first sat down to do that. He didn’t need anyone to tell him to do it and, yeah, who would that be, and why do […]

laughing at my life

Is it completely crazy to change your entire personality? To redefine your whole perspective of the world, challenge and change your views, your beliefs? To become a completely different person? Or is that just what it means to grow? Notice I didn’t say ‘grow up’ – I am a firm believer that nobody in this […]

Moda Magazine, the publication I write for, hosted a panel of women in fashion and photography. The panelists included Shopbop stylist Bao Xiong, self-made designer Madalyn Manzeck, creative director Camille Bergher, and entrepreneur/photographer Deun Ivory. These women were so inspiring to me. As a young, aspiring female writer without a clear career path ahead of […]

I stand naked in front of the mirror. No thoughts of sexuality. An attempt to be present, aware and unabashed. Another exercise in humility. There is no one else around. Still, I am self-conscious, awkward and uncomfortable. I want to cover myself, but I deliberately continue to look. I examine myself from head to toe- […]

musing + monkeying

In the fall semester of 10th grade, during 3rd period Spanish, I had a panic attack. I still remember the heat rising up inside of me, taking a ruthless kind of control over my body and somehow inflating my limbs like balloons, my cheeks turning pink and hot and my palms getting clammy and my […]

CLEVELAND — The day after Portland’s Jusuf Nurkic went down with compound leg fractures, Gordon Hayward stood beyond the East baseline here at the Cavaliers’ arena, some 94 feet from where his 2017-18 season ended on opening night with a similarly gruesome injury. “I just saw it this morning,” the Celtics forward said Tuesday. “I feel so bad for the guy, He’s having a tremendous year. I feel bad for the Blazers, too. I mean, these things happen. Ironically on this court it happened. From what I saw, it looked kind of more like (Paul George‘s) injury, a little less like mine. I think his is just a compound fracture, so nothing with the ankle or anything, which is good news. It’ll be a long road for him, but, for sure, he can work his way out of it.” Hayward’s coach had flashbacks, as well. “I did not see it,” Brad Stevens said of the Nurkic injury. “I heard about it. I feel for him. That’s brutal. It was kind of one of those situations like here, where we all saw the wind go out of the arena. I’ll never forget, like, the rest of that quarter didn’t really matter in the big picture. We were all focused on that, and then the game resumes. Inevitably the game will eventually resume, but the challenge that he has is what Gordon I’m sure has already shared with you is that it’s just a long, hard, arduous rehab. The good news is he’s got great support in Portland. He’s got great players and teammates and coaches and I’m sure a training staff. So our thoughts are with him in a quick recovery.” Hayward is now used to being asked about such matters, and such was the case when Victor Oladipo and Caris LeVert suffered hard-to-watch injuries this season. “It is what it is,” he said. “Hopefully I can be some inspiration for some people that you can come back. It takes a lot of work, but it’s definitely possible and blesses with modern technology, I guess, and all that they can do to help us get back.” But, no doubt, Hayward would rather have his name attached to something glorious like a 360-degree dunk. “Yeah, that would be nice,” he said. “A game-winning shot or something to win the NBA Finals.” Then he could get asked about it every time someone repeats the feat. “There you go,” Hayward said. “I’d like that more.” Tuesday’s game against the Cavaliers was his second back after missing three in the NBA’s concussion protocol. Hayward was shaken up when he ran into a John Collins pick in the Celts’ March 16 win over Atlanta. “That’s the first, I think, concussion that I think that I’ve had,” he said. “I mean, I’ve certainly been hit in the head before, but that’s the first, like, diagnosed concussion, so I didn’t really know what was going on with some of the recovery. And a lot of it’s just rest, so there’s not much that you can do, and they just want to make sure you’re being careful with any type of head injury these days. “I think we didn’t want to call it a concussion right away, because we didn’t know. And certainly when I got hit, I was out of it for a little bit. Kyrie (Irving) said I started walking the wrong direction and he was yelling at me, but I had to lay down for a little bit. A lot of things were spinning. It wasn’t that fun.” IRVING STAYS HOME Irving didn’t make the trip here, getting a planned game off for rest. Since forcing his way out of Cleveland, he has played here just once — opening night in 2018 when he made the pass that preceded Hayward’s injury. Said Stevens of Irving’s absence, “Obviously it comes at a tough time when you’re sitting on a four-game losing streak and not playing as well as we’d like. But I think obviously we talked about it. He’s played a pretty significant amount since the All-Star break, and we want to make sure going in (to the postseason) that we’re as fresh as possible, and his freshness is key.” As for whether that losing run made him rethink the plan to rest Irving, Stevens said, “I think it’s hard to make decisions based on those circumstances when you’re taking about long-term health and ultimately what you want to accomplish. It doesn’t make you feel any better when you’re losing, and that makes it tough. That’s why every one of these games really matters, and the one that just sits in your stomach (is) when you lose that lead in Charlotte, because maybe you play better Sunday and maybe you’re not in this situation. But ultimately we did, and it is the situation, and now we’re playing a Cleveland team that’s fully healthy and been awfully good recently.” GET IT TOGETHER As they head home to face Indiana Friday, the Celtics have just seven games left before the playoffs and are still trying to get their act together. “The biggest issues that we’ve had have clearly been a consistency and a connectedness throughout the season,” Stevens said. “That’s been obvious. So can we get closer to that? We’ve only got two weeks left before the playoffs start, and that’s a challenge. “To me, I think you build that stuff better if you really guard people, and we have yet to really guard people recently, and so that’s a huge, huge focus as we head into the stretch here.”

As of right now, unfortunately, nothing does. They have however made HUGE strides in immunotherapy for food allergies! You may have seen social media posts out there […]

I think that John arranged the events in chronological order and in such depth to emphasize the process that Jesus went through before he was crucified. The Gospel of Luke did not go into such depth of actual conversation and sayings from Jesus. I think this just reiterates how John wants us to look at […]
