What Did I Do To Deserve This?

Do you believe in Karma? The principle of cause and effect. What goes around comes around. Do unto others and all of that. Do you think it’s true? Do you think that everything we do, say, or put out in the universe has an impact on our current lives and our future selves? I couldContinue reading “What Did I Do To Deserve This?”

Yeah, I Don’t Know Either

This is your one and only warning! You can’t say it didn’t happen. It was literally the first sentence I typed.  Prepare yourself for copious amounts of mental vomit. An expulsion of— Well, I don’t know either, but I can tell you that I’m having a moment of petulance. I’m staring at this blank pageContinue reading “Yeah, I Don’t Know Either”

Correction: I’m A Coward

The clouds hang heavily in the sky, and rain batters the world below. The wind rustles the trees, and the trees let out an ungodly howl. A single crow clings to a barren branch of a lonely oak, and caws in defiance. The technicolour world fades to black and white as a three-note musical scoreContinue reading “Correction: I’m A Coward”

The Problem With Self Help

I’m writing this on Saturday, just before noon, so, um, oops. Turns out I’m a tiny bit of a liar because here I am, doing the thing I said I wouldn’t do today. In my last post, I expressed my exhaustion and my overwhelming frustration with life. I’ve run out of emotions! I didn’t knowContinue reading “The Problem With Self Help”

You Can’t Complain!

Oh, I beg to differ, and I’m mildly offended. You’re seriously underestimating my abilities. What’s this “can’t” word you speak of? It does not compute, register, or sound like a word spoken in the queens English. I can’t, allegedly, complain? Girrrl. Boyyy. Um, insert your preferred pronoun, and own it loud and proud, my friend.Continue reading “You Can’t Complain!”

The Internet Is A Weird Place!

How long has this inter-webs thing been around? Not long enough? Too long? Has it overstayed its welcome, or is it just getting warmed up? Let’s start a post with half a dozen questions because everyone loves a pop quiz first thing in the morning. Start your day with a cup of coffee (or tea),Continue reading “The Internet Is A Weird Place!”

A Very Different Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! A day of feasting, laughing with family, and taking a moment to genuinely give thanks for the good things in life. Also, it’s a day to be super lazy, watch stupid movies, and test the durability of that waistband. Is it as stretchy as they advertised? Is that a challenge? Well, consider theContinue reading “A Very Different Thanksgiving”

And Pivot!

So, this is different. Mondays have a certain structure to them, and I’m acting like it’s any given Tuesday. What’s wrong with me? Have I no sense of decorum? Do I have little regard for schedules? Am I oblivious to the comfort found in routine? I love a schedule, and my daily routine is soContinue reading “And Pivot!”

Tubes In Holes To Motivate Your Monday?

“Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”  — To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee There’s absolutely no reason to put a single word on a single sheet of paper. There’s even less reason to keep doing it until the words,Continue reading “Tubes In Holes To Motivate Your Monday?”

Spritually Unenlightened

I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders. — Jewish Proverb Um, if I’m being honest, I wouldn’t mind a lighter burden. If my shoulders get any broader, the hip to shoulder ratio will be way off. I’m going to get too top-heavy and topple over. Even if I managed to stayContinue reading “Spritually Unenlightened”
