Good Over Evil

I had originally intended to post something else today but given the events of last night in Manchester, England it just seemed unmindful. My prayers go out to the victims, their families, the whole of Manchester, and the whole world. This attack feels particularly heinous because of the nature of the event where it took…

Answer “What Do You Do” Differently

Every time you meet someone new the same question rolls off their tongue right after their introduction, “so what do you do?” I have come to hate this question because everyone answers it the same way. They tell you what they do for a living. They don’t tell you who they are. And since everyone…

Overwhelmed By Love

Plato thought that the Gods had split us in two and that’s why we yearned so desperately to find our other half. Some spiritual corners think we’re looking for our twin flame; that person that is the yin to our yang. Either way you look at it, this person no matter how well they fit…

Beauty & the Beast Movie Review (Spoilers)

My VHS copy of the animated film may be unwatchable by now but I still feel like a little schoolgirl when I think of this tale as old as time. I finally got around to watching the live-action Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens yesterday and you better believe I have comments….

Nothing On Board

On Day 66 Aunt Flo finally decided to make her appearance. So I might be malfunctioning a little but I’m still not on the baby train. And I still have the opportunity to do the marriage before the baby carriage I guess. On the upside, I have learned a tremendous amount about fertility and what…

Weddings and Baby Bumps

I guess it started when I noticed that my newsfeed on Facebook had more engagement announcements, wedding photos, and baby bumps than party posts. Strewn amidst the apocalyptic visions of Trump’s America my social media feeds are now littered with baby photos. I have developed a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out). This…

Love to Worry

I was about to go to sleep when from the living room I heard Anita Baker’s “Caught Up in the Rapture”— great song yes, but more importantly an exclamation point for how I feel about my boyfriend. I love him in that over the fence, grand slam kind of way. It’s truly the most amazing…

Be Brave

I am thankful for all that I have and all that I have yet to receive. I am thankful for the love of a good man. I am thankful for my family that loves me unconditionally. I am thankful for a brain that’s always thinking and hands that are always tinkering. I am thankful for…

Not Ready for Youtube

Have you ever watched a recording of yourself and thought: “why do I make all those dumb facial expressions?””do I do that when I’m speaking to people?””why hasn’t anyone ever told me I look like that?!” Well, today I decided to try something out. Maybe it was because I’ve been binging on YouTube DIY channels…

Smile Like Babies Do

Within the first three months of life an infant has it’s first smile as a result of social interaction ( How Smiles Develop ). Thanks to Facebook and Instagram, I am bombarded on a regular basis by the cutest little grins thanks to the procreating efforts of literally every single one of my friends (seriously, everyone). My…

Clearing the Deck

  Yes, I’m back – with my tail between my legs. And I owe those of you who have done me the kindness to follow this blog, an apology. I had the audacity to think that I didn’t need to write anything. But writing is my oxygen. I may lose jobs and relationships but they…
