Pomp, Circumstance, and Pods: A Graduation Story

Recently The Husband and I traveled across the country to attend a high school graduation. My sister-in-law (also known as my Teenage Dialogue Consultant) was among the eager graduates. Having come from a large family, I have been to many a high school graduation. Granted, it has been a few years since I last attended

How To Win At Internet Arguing: A Medieval Proposal

It would seem I have a lot of social media frustration these days. This is my third post on the subject. I promise I’ll move on to other topics eventually. Gotta get it all out of my system, I guess. What is today’s topic, you ask? Perhaps the mother of all internet grievances: Online Arguing.

If only I could count sheep…

I don’t know about y’all, but I have a love/hate relationship with sleep. I love sleep when it happens. I hate the fact that it’s so difficult for me. As I’m sure you’ve guessed, last night was rough. I fell asleep just fine, but then I woke up at 1:46 AM — I know because

Tired of online fakery? I’ve got some ideas.

Okay, friends, you’re about to be treated to some Rage Blogging. It’s probably not a good idea to blog while mad, but I’m going to anyways. When The Muse calls with an idea, you’ve gotta roll with it. The Muse is kind of like the Commissioner Gordon to my Batman. Gordon never stops to think,

Feel The Burn!

Recently I had an interesting conversation with my mom and sisters. The topic? Exercise videos. My mom was asking for advice on finding a good exercise video. What was she looking for in said video, you ask? Something short so she can get it done in a few minutes? Good music? Nope. She had two

Bird Invasion? Look To The Butt.

The other night I barely slept. I’m talking like a maximum of 3 non-consecutive hours of sleep. I tossed. I turned. I went to the bathroom and played on my phone ten million times. It was awful. At the time, I had no idea why I was so restless. Now I know. I had sensed

On A Diet? Avoid The Greeting Card Aisle.

Few things strike fear into my heart like shopping for a card. Yes, you read that right. Shopping for cards terrifies me. Unfortunately, I had to face this fear the other day as I was in the market for two cards for bridal showers I was unable to attend. What is my grievance with cards,

How Do I Handle Writer’s Block? One word: snowmobile

I hate writer’s block. It’s a frequent visitor to my head. And it sucks. I’ve been wondering lately about what causes writer’s block. It seems like there’s a constant stream of potential blog posts swimming around my head at all times. So much so that I often have to tell my brain to shut up
