It’s Actually NOT Impersonal

Imagine you are with your friend, sister, brother, or whoever and you are standing in front of a really big mall. Or at least the biggest mall that you live closest to. So your person and you go into the mall. Your person looks to you and says, “Pick out anything you want and I’m going to pay for it.” So you and your person go into the mall and hangout and talk and grab coffee. You find a store that you love and you go in and find something that speaks to you. You and your person go to … Continue reading It’s Actually NOT Impersonal

Having That ‘Hard Talk’ With Yourself

It’s always hard to come to terms with the fact that you need to change. Yes, I know everyone is all “Love me for who I am,” and that’s fine. But then there are times when you have to look yourself in the mirror and admit that something has to change. Whether that means starting a healthier habit, or working on your patience, or even watching your budget. Change isn’t bad. It might be uncomfortable and scary, but it’s not bad. Want to know why? Because things are likely to change again… and again. Also, working on yourself isn’t a … Continue reading Having That ‘Hard Talk’ With Yourself

Here’s the Thing

So, I’m not going to lie… it’s been a while since I’ve posted. And there’s a particular reason for that…. because I didn’t want to. Now, I know that might sound obvious (and lazy), but hear me out. Usually when I blog, I write the blog, find pictures, use tags, enter in any links to anything I referenced in case someone wanted to know more, and categories. And for some reason, this began to stress me out. I would spend at least an hour looking for a picture that I liked and could use and/or modify, and then I had … Continue reading Here’s the Thing

An Open Letter to the New 30 Yr. Old Self

Dear New 30 Year Old Self: I have to say…. I’m not happy about you being here. I’m now entering a whole new decade that I’m not too happy to be a part of. Honestly, I never thought I would be this old. I don’t know why, but as a kid, being 30 was like…. impossible. It was something that happened to OTHER people but wouldn’t happen to me. And if – IF – 30 had to happen to me, I would at least like to think that I would be rich and famous by then. But since 29 did … Continue reading An Open Letter to the New 30 Yr. Old Self

An Open Letter to My Old 29 Yr. Old Self

Dear Old 29 Yr. Old Self: You’ve had quite the year! You left one job and started at another. You also celebrated your first anniversary of marriage and went to the Bahamas! You also ended the year by watching Trump get elected into office. And I don’t know when it happened, but at some point, you matured a bit and grew up a little bit more. But if I have to be honest with you, I’m a little bit disappointed. Most of my years, I’ve been slaying it. And 29, I don’t know what happened, but you slacked… a lot! … Continue reading An Open Letter to My Old 29 Yr. Old Self

Your Comfy Spot

I have the hardest time trying to figure out how to make rooms look comfy. I see all of these pictures on Pinterest and I really want to do them, but when I do what I see in the picture… it kind of just looks cluttered… or really sad. Plus, I’m trying to do it with the furniture that we already have and make it as budget friendly as possible. But how do you do that? How do you make rooms look ‘Home Living’ and ‘Pinterest’ comfy? I know that it takes more than a pillow and a vase of flowers, … Continue reading Your Comfy Spot

Fire Alarms for Adults

Remember when you were little, you had practice fire drills in school? Everyone had to get into an orderly fashion, exit the building, and then meet at the flag pole and watch the school burn. At work we had a fire drill, but it wasn’t so much a “drill.” The voice over the speaker told us to ‘remain at our workstations for the duration of the alarm.’ Now I have to wonder, if there were an actual fire – no one would know what the fuck to do. It’s more like, “run for your lives!” sort of plan. Personally, I … Continue reading Fire Alarms for Adults

Collector of Stories

If you ever really think about it, we are collectors of stories. We are told stories and we create stories to tell. We had a new employee start recently and I basically asked him to tell me his story. We had a few discussions on topics and he shared some of his stories. I, in turn, come home and tell my husband about him and his stories. And in the future (whenever that may be), my husband might reference a man his wife works with and his stories. Our blogs are our daily stories. Those who come here will learn … Continue reading Collector of Stories

Practice Makes… Things Worse

This is just pure speculation because I don’t really know the truth or reality of it. But let me give you a scenario: Think of one of your favorite bands or music artists. Don’t let it be someone that just broke the scene, either. This band/artist needs to have been around for a while. Got one? Great. I have a particular artist that I absolutely love. I have all of her cd’s (some are pure electronic, others I have the actual disc) and I really enjoy her music, personality, ideas, etc. Her first album was phenomenal. I know every song, … Continue reading Practice Makes… Things Worse

Bringing in the New Year

Hello all! I hope everyone had a great and safe New Year celebration. I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but class has been keeping me busy pretty much every single day and night that I have available. I do want to get back into writing though, because I feel like I need to do something that I ACTUALLY like. I feel like most of my days are spent doing things I don’t want to do, but sort of have to. I’m sure I’m not the only one who isn’t too crazy happy to go to work most … Continue reading Bringing in the New Year
