What a girl wants

Last week I visited the eye doctor (the day I realized that I didn’t need to have a panic attack while the doctor was shining bright things in my eyes.)  Now I’m embarking on phase II of that journey… picking out NEW EYEGLASS FRAMES!  (In my head I hear that in a big ominous voice that …

It’s okay, you’re not gonna die

I’ve been having trouble with my contact lenses for the last couple of months.  So much so that I’ve taken to wearing my glasses to work a few times a week, which is extremely unusual. A while back I called my eye doctor for an appointment and today was the big day. And with it …

Recently I found this in a bag of baby carrots:

When I saw this carrot, it seemed like the perfect embodiment of what I’ve been doing: going straight the core and …

Voting for a clean mind

As we head into the final days of this election cycle (FINALLY!!!!!), I’ve been pondering how differently I feel today than I did just two election cycles ago.

As I pondered, I found this piece that I wrote a while back for a magazine about changing perspectives.  It was never published, so I thought I’d …

The Godfather’s Daughter

Sometimes healing finds you in the most unexpected places. For me, it was in the pages of a book about a mobster’s daughter.

Lady parts

Last week I saw an image on Facebook that struck me as both hilarious and absolutely on-point:

While I generally stay out of politics on Facebook, this one made me laugh so hard that I shared it with my friends.

I got a response that struck a nerve, so much so that I’ve taken …

Being true to me

This afternoon I got an email that kinda blew my mind and once again had me reconsidering how I think about myself.
