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 […]

On Forgiveness: The WL Feelings Edition, Part I

Today is a beautiful day. The leaves are fabulous shades of red, yellow, and orange. The air is crisp and the sun is shining. Today, is also beautiful because I signed my divorce papers. With a pen. I sort of wish I could sign them in a more dramatic fashion with a quill and ink […]

On Music: Or Why I am the World’s Biggest Fangirl of The National

If you follow me on the Twitter, you may have noticed that I love am slightly obsessed with The National. I’m a fangirl. I’ve pretty much never ever been a fangirl of anything in music, teevee, movies ever in my life like this. OK, I do really love Mad Men, but I’m not sure I […]

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 […]

Keys to the Future

I am sitting here tonight overwhelmed with emotion. Frankly, I am super proud of myself and deliriously happy. I just spent a couple of hours in my very own house in Shaker Heights. To most people, it might just seem like a new house in my still newish city is the next logical step after […]

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 […]

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 […]

On Being Thankful

So, Thanksgiving is two days away and I have seen a lot of people on social media doing these sort of “be thankful for something every day in November” thingys, but of course I would do mine differently. Besides, there are thirty days in November and that’s a lot of thankfulness to make up, I […]

A Letter to my Mother

Four years ago, I lost my mother to cancer: lung that metastasized to her brain and then throughout her body. She didn’t have health insurance and thankfully the hospice workers found a grant for treatment, though really it was always hopeless. It was horrible, but fast. To this day, I still donate money to the […]
