It’s Not Me, It’s You

Or, that time my best friend broke up with me. Photo Credit At 30-something, it had become difficult to make new friends.

10 Things I’d Tell My Younger Self

I don't think mom knew it was picture day. Still, I continue to sport a very similar hairdo. WFH much? Dear Younger Me, I don't know how much time we have together so I'm going to make this quick. I've watched you from afar. I've noticed the mistakes you've made, the heartbreak you've endured and... Continue Reading →

Look Ma! No Boundaries!

Nothing says, "Go start a YouTube Channel," like having 48 followers on your blog! Am I right? I mean, I might as well take another gut punch right to my confidence and bear my soul EVEN MORE PUBLICLY just so I can spend hours putting together content only to obsessively refresh my various accounts to...

What’s your Goldschlager?

There are two things I will never consume again. Two things that will always elicit a physical (and very negative) response if someone even utters the words: Goldschlager and Reuben sandwiches. I just got chills and that nails-on-a-chalk-board feeling. Like, in my soul. We all have these things. Food scars (or drink scars if the... Continue Reading →

A Tribe called YES!

It's Women's History Month y'all! And yesterday was International Women's Day, as I'm sure a lot of you are already aware. I was busy posting female empowerment content for work, combatting mansplaining/manterupting, and attempting to remain upbeat in the face of some irritating challenges so I didn't get the opportunity to post here - which...

The Waiting Room

It was September of 2017 so you'll forgive me if there are large gaps in my memory - I can barely remember if I've had one or five cups of coffee (it was five. it was definitely five.) in the morning and now we're talking about something that happened almost four years ago.
