Career Change Challenges: An Ode To Caffeine

It’s been a few months since I’ve been at this blogging thing. I hope y’all are enjoying getting a weekly dose of random musings. This week I felt the need to share with y’all some of the challenges that go into writing full time. Namely, I find myself struggling with the same questions: how cute

Team Edward? Nah. I’m Team Comfy Pants.

I think I may need to have a priest bless my phone. Why, you ask? Because lately it has become overrun with vampires. Every time I open up Facebook and scroll through my news feed, I see them. Said news feed is cluttered with advertisements for a variety of “choose your own adventure” games. Do

Party In The Bathroom!

The other day I went to the bathroom and thought, “this really needs a remodel. How am I supposed to have a party in here?” I should clarify. Said bathroom was not in my house. Bathroom parties at home don’t really work. This was a public restroom. And it was way too small. There were

My Points Are Better Than Your Points

Today I had one of my random epiphanies on how to make the world a better place. I’m sure you’re curious to know what I came up with, aren’t you? Did I solve world hunger? Eliminate homelessness? No I did not. But I’ll tell you what I did realize… The key to everything is invisible

When happy little trees aren’t so happy…

Bob Ross lied to me, y’all. You remember Bob. He had a show called The Joy of Painting. I watched it a lot when I was a kid. “Really Amy?” you ask. Yes, really. I enjoyed watching him make all works of art. One week he would paint a big tree next to a babbling

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
