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. […]

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. […]

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 Getting Organized

It’s always been a struggle for me to keep a clean and organized house. I’m not @winelibrarian. I can go to bed with dishes in the sink and clutter all over my house. I can step over piles of junk mail on the floor. I can pretend that my bedroom floor isn’t covered in dirty […]

On Migraines and Life Happiness

I’ve been a chronic migraine sufferer since I turned 15. Thanks a lot, hormones. Until 2008, however, I always assumed they were sinus headaches because the pain was focused above my eyes. My migraines don’t have auras, and every commercial for migraine medicine you see announces that as a requirement for migraines. I saw a […]

Embracing My Inner Alpha

It’s no secret that I can be a hardass bitch (in fact, it’s recently been established that I really am a bitch). I talk too loud when it isn’t always appropriate. I curse like a sailor. I’m a sassy motherfucker. I tell dead baby jokes when there’s a priest behind me (to be fair, I […]

On Growing One Year Older

I turn 29 on Saturday. I’ve never made a super huge deal about birthdays. As a child, having a summer birthday meant that I usually didn’t get to celebrate my birthday in school with  homemade cupcakes and a birthday crown like the other kids, unless we had too many snow days that school year. And […]

Of Being Alone and Loneliness: One is Not The Other

My grandma came to visit me on Saturday for the first time since I got divorced. I’d visited my family in Pennsylvania a few times, but it was her first time seeing my new place (she was quite skeptical about me moving). My grandma worries about me a lot. She doesn’t like where I work […]

Why the Song “Love the One You’re With” is Totally Wrong

In case you have your head up your ass and you missed all the #FreeBitchy tweets yesterday, my divorce was finalized yesterday morning. And in case you missed all the between the lines tweets over the last six months, I ended my marriage in October. I was a bit more vague about that, so I […]

What a Difference a Year Makes

Our theme this month is strong women, but I guess I’m going to kind of deviate from that. Deal with it. We state in the About Us that this blog is for whatever we feel like writing about. And right now I feel like writing about finding my happy. It’s no secret that I’ve been […]
