Anatomy of a Stalker

naimakennedytrolling

So, I asked my readers to help me out the other day by verifying your identity. It’s a part of the original Terms of Service for using this site because, as you know, I made the blog private specifically to avoid the constant trolling and stalking. You’d think that would deter people. But some people are just incredibly unhinged. I’m exceptionally tired of feeling like I’m always on the defense, constantly trying to protect myself and my family from personal attacks. It’s like a nightmarish...

The Graduation Party Weekend and What It All Means…

You may remember I was feeling very “BLAH YUCK” about graduation last week. Suffice to say that walking in that commencement ceremony really turned my attitude around. The speakers and their inspiring words really helped me to remember why I worked so hard for this and that it’s okay if I don’t know where it will all take me right...

Lost.

Last week I attended the last class of my academic career. Today I handed in the final assignment. On Friday, I walk across the stage and get my diploma. Saturday I have my mega-awesome graduation dance party (that you’re invited to.) But after all that, then what? I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with my life now....

My Big Plans…

two-roads

Graduation is just two short weeks away. . . . Hold on. I had to stop for a second, open my calendar, and check to be sure that was accurate because the mere thought of only having two weeks left before the real world bangs down my door just gave me a mini heart attack. But that’s right. Two weeks....

Hillary’s Running, and I Can’t Shut Up About It.

I never wanted Barack Obama to be President of the United States. I wanted Hillary Rodham Clinton. I armchair campaigned for her hard back in 2008, but I lost that fight. I reluctantly punched the “Obama” box on the ballot simply to keep that teabagger Palin out of office. Obama did an okay job. But I firmly believe Hillary would...

In Honor of World Rat Day…

WRD-2003

Today is World Rat Day (yes, it’s a thing) so now seems like the perfect time to tell you all about what I did this week. Last Sunday, I made a decision that walks the line between “You have completely lost it” and “Best idea EVAR!” I’m an animal lover. I always have been. The one bright spot of my...

When Your Child is Actually Smarter Than You

Of course my kids think they’re smarter than me. All kids do that sort of thing to their parents. They think we’re old and out-of-touch. We kind of are. Kids don’t know enough to know that they don’t know shit yet. Their whole world exists between home, school, and their grandparents’ houses. Once they have the dynamics of those places...

Return of the Mack…

Wow. It’s kind of amazing how quickly and horribly things can go wrong when you stop taking a medication that you clearly need. In my case, I really needed that Abilify and things took a dark turn when the doc experimented with taking me off of it. Within three or four days of having my new prescription, I began feeling...
