Once again I spent the weekend (a bit longer, really), traveling. The fella and I went to North Carolina for five days to visit friends and meet his dad (for me. Clearly he has met his father before) We drove down on a Friday morning. I have never, honestly, been in a car for that…

California Dreamin

       I spent the last weekend in California visiting my friend Emily who I haven’t seen in about 8+ years. It was one of the more impromptu trips I’ve taken basically…ever. The last time I traveled quite so impulsively was when I took my semester in Ireland and my friend Lara turned to me…

Surprise…?

I received an email Tuesday about the Surprise!Interview. It obviously was not the happy kind of email, as shown by my lack of capital letters and general lack of woohoo-ing. It’s awkward when you cry at work about the job you didn’t get. I stepped into the parking lot, cool as a cucumber (and by…

Weekends…

I bought a new laptop this past Thursday since mine is officially ded. Being the super patient person I am, I then lost my shit about…Saturday as to why it hadn’t arrived yet. Needless to say, I was a real joy to be around. I was also feeling generally sorry for myself for having to spend that…

Borked Computer Bork Bork Bork 

On Monday morning I went to check my email (as you do over morning tea) and I noticed it didn’t seem to be charging. I did the usual trouble shooting things – I restarted it, I unplugged it and plugged it back in – then I did what I do best. I told Andy my…

It’s Been A While

It’s been an extraordinarily long week. There’s really not much else to say about it. This is compounded by me needing a B12 shot, which is sitting on my dresser. I’ll admit, that one is on me. But otherwise, I’m just tired. I’m feeling guilty for things I shouldn’t feel guilty about. I’m frustrated because…

It’s Not Me, It’s You

I broke my promise to write every week (or at least I think I did). But I’m writing more than once every three months and let’s look at that as a victory, shall we? I quit my therapist this week. Or to be more exact I fired her. I accessed the hive mind and it…

On My Honor, I Solemnly Swear

I’m a bad blogger. I recognize this. I’m really good at starting them, I like setting them up and I sometimes write a little. Then I ghost on it. I promise to do better. At least one post a week. Okay? Between you and me. One thing my therapist has taught me is that I…

It Might Be Okay To Feel Your Feelings

I had my first therapy appointment about a week ago. It went considerably better than I expected. I was incredibly nervous, which apparently is quite normal. What I expected was the following (or something like it). “So, why are you here? Tell me a bit about yourself,” says the nice, yet intimidating older therapist lady….

What I Want To Be When I Grow Up

When I was in high school, or maybe a bit earlier, I decided it might be interesting to be a photographer. This was after I gave up on being a ballerina (too fat and too clumsy), an astronaut (took calculus and couldn’t add), and for a brief time, Prince William’s Wife (too American and too…

Intergalactic Dreaming

When I was six or seven years old, I was sitting in the living room, watching an episode of The Adventures of Pete & Pete. I watched far too much tv as a child, but at least it was good tv. My parents were in the library, watching something I thought was boring and adult…

Lows Bars Aren’t Something To Brag About

The bar for 2017 isn’t set particularly high. I know this because this time last year I was on the phone with insurance people, sorting out the car accident I was in the day before, courtesy of the seventeen-year-old who thought it would be fun to put an enormous dent in my front bumper, thus…
