People are weird. I don't understand them. They say one thing, and do another. They want to be your friend, until you need something and then they are too busy, or you're too needy - no matter how much you have been there when they've needed something in the past. People are complex.I don't understand… Continue reading On People.
"I'm not going to make it today." you say at the last minute. "Something came up." "okay" I answer, because, what else am I supposed to say? it's not like this is the first (or second, or third) time you've cancelled at the last minute. Because, honestly, at this point, I'd probably be more surprised… Continue reading It’s not fine.
I am so sick of politics. It used to be that campaigning was seasonal. It lasted about 18 months every four years, and then, there was a break. Now, I feel like it is ALL politics, ALL the time. There is never a break. If we don’t talk about campaigning, we have to talk about… Continue reading Politics
I am the kind of person who uses my calendar religiously. Want to make plans? Let me check my calendar. My next available appointment is next Thursday at 6 - will that work for you? Yeah, I know its obnoxious, but that's who I am, and that's where we are. So last Friday (at the… Continue reading Alright Little Lady
A couple of weeks ago, I gathered my gumption, drove to Indianapolis and participated in the Niantic Wizards Unite Fan Festival. This was the first “vacation” I’d taken by myself (although I travel solo all the time for work), and I was nervous as all get-out. What if something happens on the drive there? What… Continue reading My wizarding adventure
One of the things my doctor is constantly obsessing about is my weight. To help appease these concerns I have tried diet after diet – all to no avail. Most recently (ok, about 6 months ago) he referred me to an endocrinologist who referred me to the Mary Free Bed Weight Management program – who… Continue reading The End of the Weight Management Program
Before I launched this blog, I had taken a well-needed sabbatical from Facebook which was, previously, the only social media site where I was active. During this hiatus I realized I didn't miss the drama and politics of Facebook, but I DID miss the news part of my newsfeed. To satisfy this craving, when I… Continue reading I don’t know how to Twitter
One of the things that is super important in allowing me to maintain my hectic/busy schedule, is properly managing my stress levels. Sometimes (most of the time) I'm really good at this, and life moves quickly and I am able to keep up. but also, sometimes I become overwhelmed and then the busy schedule just… Continue reading Managing My Stress Levels
I thought it would be fun to do a video blog interviewing my parents for my birthday as I am 32 today! It was my first ever attempt at video blogging an interview, and I learned a couple of things. 1) My mother is extremely camera shy, so when she was being interviewed there was… Continue reading An Interview with my Parents for my Birthday
Every time the Powerball or Mega-Millions gets really high--you know, 300 million or so--I always go out and buy a ticket and spend roughly the next 24 hours or so fantasizing about what I might do with the money, if by some miracle I happened to win. I mean, honestly, if I really did win all… Continue reading What if…. I won the Lottery
