Being Thankful, 2013 edition

I know it’s been a million years since I’ve posted anything here. I’ve gotten bad at blogging publicly. But it’s almost Thanksgiving! And that means it’s time for me to post all the things for which I am thankful, and there are a lot of them. 2012 was an awesome year, but 2013 has been […]

LASIK: Thinks and Feels Edition

So I was going to write about my whole LASIK experience in detail, including the nauseating fact that my doctor used what he called a “cornea spatula” on my eyes, but anyone could read about the gross details on some LASIK site. This blog is about THINKS AND FEELS. But I will say this: the […]

All the Changes

So I’ve got a lot going on in the next few weeks and I’m trying my hardest not to let my anxiety about all the things get carried away. Because I NEVER worry about anything. On May 30 (next Thursday!), my boyfriend is moving in with me! I’m beyond excited, but I’m also really nervous. […]

On my Grandma

I love my grandma. I really do. But she’s also a big part of the reason I had low self-esteem while I was growing up and why I’m such an insane perfectionist to this day. Expressing her feelings has never come easily to my grandma. So, in order to prove her love to me, she […]

I’m moving!

For the past seven and a half years, I’ve always lived about 45 minutes away from my job. There were a few moves here and there, but nothing that ever took me closer to where I worked. At first, I didn’t mind it. The long drive gave me time to unwind and listen to music. […]

No Spend January

I tend to go a little…overboard during the holidays when it comes to spending. In fact, I opted to pay half of my credit card bill in the middle of the month so that I wouldn’t have a coronary when the whole bill was due at the end of the month (I’m one of those […]

On My Love of Christmas Romance

I’m going to confess something, dear readers. This is something I’ve only recently confessed to Winey, so you know it’s big. It’s not that I’m afraid that anyone will judge me (okay, maybe just a little bit), but it’s just something that seems so silly. But here goes: Christmas turns me into a huge romantic […]

#25ActsofXmas

I’ve always been the gift-giving type. The more I like you, the more I’ll randomly buy you something, just because it made me think of you. I give gifts to show that I care about someone. I think I do that because that’s a way my family has always shown love. My grandma regularly takes […]

In Which I am Thankful

One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories happened when I was in fourth grade. When I was in fourth grade, my friend H and I spent a class period helping in the classroom designed for the mentally and physically disabled students; I think the rest of our class was being read to by our teacher (H […]

Dear Attention Whores

Dear Attention Whores, Stop it. You’re embarrassing yourselves and making me feel uncomfortable. Pointing out that you have boobs is not going to make people like you. Sure, someone who appreciates your boobs may take you home for the night, but that’s about all you’re going to get out of it. Maybe you think that’s […]
