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:
Have I not posted this whole month? Oops? It has been a busy April, let me tell ya. First of all... I moved! I'm not going to go into too much detail about where I moved to, but I'm essentially in a better, more convenient version of where I previously lived. Also I have a … Continue reading hey hi gotta go
This is the longest I've ever put my life on hold, and all to find out that I do not have Nutcracker syndrome. It's not entirely accurate to say I put my life on hold, I suppose. Some wonderful things have happened over the last few months. It might a better analogy to say that … Continue reading hit “play”

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

This was a great find because I happen to be turning 25 … Continue reading 25 before 25
Yesterday's MRI was not my first (or even my first with contrast dye) by any means. However, it was the first MRI I've had where I found delightful pictures of beaches and coastlines taped inside the big, boring, clanking machine for patients to look at. I pictured a healthy and wealthy version of myself on … Continue reading I always knew mozzarella sticks were the answer
1) Thick: And Other Essays by Tressie McMillan Cottom I found out about Tressie McMillan Cottom's latest book thanks to Goodreads.com, who featured Thick in a promotional email that of course I cannot find. Now that I am aware of McMillan Cottom - her education, professional and personal background, it's no surprise at all that her essays were filled … Continue reading 7 things that kept me sane this week
Before I started this blog, it seemed like I had some crazy new health development or another every week. It was always the feeling of "man, I should've been blogging when such and such happened," until I finally decided that better late than never, let's get this blog going. I'm realizing now that I'm in … Continue reading I forgot to plan for this.
