Scary Movie Life

Well it's happened.  I am living my nightmare, starring in my own horror film.  Something I never thought possible.  (sigh) I didn't have a single sip of alcohol on St. Patrick's Day.  I'm a failure to myself, my family and all of Ireland.  I feel shame.  I don't even know who I am anymore.  This...

The Best We Can

Ever feel like you're walking through life blindfolded in the dark searching for a pinata without a bat?  Asking for a friend.  The universe has always had my back but I feel like she's testing my limits these days.  Keeping my eyes peeled for that silver lining like a hawk.  I know I'm not alone. ...

Don’t Mind Me

Just when I thought I'd lost all sex appeal, I got cat-called by a parrot this week.  Yes, you read that sentence correctly.  SHE'S STILL GOT IT!  Ugh.  So as far as where I'm at in life, I feel like I'm really soaring this week.  Add that with the fact I'll be over here dying...

Revolution

Finally watching Mandalorian while it's raining outside and my heart is so full!  Please give me more rainy days.  I miss the rain.  I miss the thunder and the lightning and how it creates this symphony of nature.  I know rain is correlated with sadness and depression but it brings me a sense of rebirth. ...

Love Will Find a Way

Yesterday was the 18th anniversary of 9/11.  18 years ago, I sat through my 8am class at Indiana University unaware of the horror happening in our country.  Those were the days when I channeled my undiagnosed A.D.D. through doodling, writing lyrics and literal daydreaming which, often times, morphed into sleeping through class.  Whoops.  I will...

It’s All Coming Back to Me

Well, it happened.  I'm 36.  The floating beer pong was a giant success as was the crate of coconuts that were delivered to my door.  Dare I say, the world could use more coconuts.  Truly.  Even the moon, full in all its glory, showed up for me.  (Selenophile (n.) A person who loves the moon) ... Continue Reading →

Thank You, Next

Real talk.  Fruit flies.  Where do they come from?  It makes me crazy.  I'm not a dirty person.  I keep a pretty clean ship and then I'll be reading before I go to bed and one just whizzes by and it's like EXCUSE ME, SIR?!  And once you seen one, you can't just go back... Continue Reading →

Love You, Mean It

I am currently on a plane headed to the Midwest for Ann Arbor to celebrate my aunt and uncle’s 50th wedding anniversary.   Yes, that's them - how cute are they?  These two humans have chosen to stay together for 5 decades.  Kinda blows your mind a little bit doesn’t it?  I don’t think I like...

Where did the Good Go?

We have a knack, as a society, to focus on the bad.  I even catch myself doing it from time to time.  I tend to focus on the things I don't have, the things I'm not good at, the parts I don't love about my body and what I haven't accomplished yet.  Why am I... Continue Reading →
