I had a teacher tell me in eighth grade that I should never start a presentation with a disclaimer. Joke's on her, because I start just about everything with a disclaimer. That's called not being confident! I'm somehow confident enough to do new things, yet I don't exactly approach them with confidence. Can anyone unpack … Continue reading disclaimer:
Oh hey. The thing is, I told myself if I started waiting tables again I'd schedule writing into my life in a structured way so that I don't end up not writing for long chunks of time. And then I didn't do that, and here we are. I was actually starting up a bit of … Continue reading and this is why I don’t own blush
Did ANYONE catch Miss USA last night? I'll assume most people didn't. I'm not living under the delusion that many people are into pageants. Just roll with me for a minute. I didn't have much of an opinion about pageantry at all before making a spur of the moment decision to enter one - and … Continue reading vain? or just veiny?
Last week, I shared some lovely, Instagram-able pictures from my Florida trip. Now I want to get into a detail of the trip that I didn't bring up before - the fact that health issues don't necessarily take a chill pill just because you've headed away on what is meant to be a relaxing vacation. … Continue reading when your pain isn’t travel-sized
Have I not posted this whole month? Oops? It has been a busy April, let me tell ya. First of all... I moved!

Some wonderful things have happened over the last few months. It might a better analogy to say that … Continue reading hit “play”
hellooo! Two things. That's all. I'm heading back home tonight in preparation for my venogram tomorrow morning, where I'll find out what's going on with this potential Nutcracker syndrome of mine (or not of mine). I feel like I've been spinning in place from my last appointment in February until now. Not knowing if I'll … Continue reading spring meltdown
It's a list! Like Taylor Swift's...but with a twist. I was at a loss (again) for what to write while I wait for my next appointment/procedure, when I came across Taylor Swift's "30 Things She Learned Before Her 30th Birthday" article in Elle. This was a great find because I happen to be turning 25 … Continue reading 25 before 25
