So This Is What It’s Like

This is me holding an inexplicably large pair of scissors. They really cut too.

Shit. I haven’t logged in here in so long I seriously almost forgot how. It’s a little unsettling when you have to press the “forgot password” link on your own damn blog. But I do feel like I owe it to people to post an update. My heart isn’t in it, but I feel obligated, so here goes. My heart isn’t here because it’s been completely kidnapped by my new job. It’s been five weeks since I started and there’s so much to tell I...

Lost.

247659_5199fee0

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.

wonder woman hills

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

01e4cc2f097a6d52c9bd0bec17ac39cf8d943f7c8c

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...

Forgotten Milestones.

0196ebbc7ee884e60c1c6400a3e831ef0124e20c85

When my first son was born, someone gave me one of those baby books where you could fill in all the details of the baby’s first milestones. First tooth, first word, and first steps were all events that I was supposed to record, according to this beautiful, blank binder. But I was so cocky and indignant about this book. I...


Goodbye
