New day.  New choices.  New attitude. Yea, I was knocked down...but I'm done choosing to mull over that shit.  Today I'm taking action.  Because that's what strong-ass bitches do. Funny how even when you adopt the "fake it till you make it" mentality, you still have to face yourself at the end of the day.  [...]


  Throughout my life, I've had one mentor...a woman who has been to the top...been dragged back down...built herself up again...and, during that entire time, raised a son completely on her own while enduring her fair share of love and loss in many aspects of life.  Though she and I don't speak as often as [...]

So. About life…

Yea.  No one hijacked my blog...it's really me...I feel a little guilty that I haven't been able to update this space for a while...Since March life has most literally been non-stop.  New job has me crankin' out crazy hours and by the time I get home, I truly have nothing creative left to give to [...]

You can’t handle the truth.

I was told by one of my bff's this weekend that I need to write again...so, here I am, making time that I don't have to, once again, bitch about the singlehood status.  I feel like I'm on fucking repeat so I'm gonna shake this up a bit and get real about what it's REALLY [...]

Shit people don’t say.

I realize my posts have been few and far between.  This new job has me jumping through hoops...and I love every second of it.  With all these fires (both professional and personal) I've been trying to contain these days, I've learned some very valuable lessons in not only patience but in the art of picking one's [...]

A moment of silence.

New job?  Check.  Back in the dating world?  Check.  Feel like I doused myself in gasoline and ran through a field of dried brush?  Check.  Metaphor getting lost in my sleep-deprivation?  Fuck. Yes. You know what though?  I like it.  And life has just taken a turn for the incredible.   I woke up at [...]

Road Trip Feels.

Funny thing about solo road trips...there's a LOT of time for introspective thought, contemplation and basically sortin' shit out.  This is probably why I avoid drives over 3 hours and have a fuck-ton of audiobooks to distract me from self-reflection.  No one wants a raw look at themselves.  Most of my ugly cries have been [...]


So I'm taking inventory....finally.  There have been a few people I personally know that I have peripherally kept in my life for one reason or another.  Some date back to the stone age (i.e. when I was younger) and some are more recent acquaintances.  I've kept one tiny, minute portion of my pinky finger on [...]

Sometimes indecision IS a decision.

I alluded to some 'heart-wrenching' (maybe over exaggerated with that term but whatevs) dating situations in my last post and thought, hell...if I'm opening up a flesh wound, may as well dig all the way to the artery and bleed out. There is a pretty profound lesson found in each of the scenarios so, maybe, [...]
