WHEN YOU SUDDENLY REALIZE YOU’RE THAT DIVORCEE WHO IS SOUGHT OUT FOR RELATIONSHIP ADVICE…

I consider myself to be a fairly level-headed person.  I know I'm not without moments of craziness...hell...I'm not only human, I AM a woman.  Additionally, I'm one of the (what I'm guessing to be) millions of women/humans who have been divorced...I've had a couple of long-term relationships, followed by a 10-year relationship/marriage, followed by a [...]

YOU ASKED, SO HERE GOES…(BONUS CLE ON DATING WOMEN LIKE ME…AKA, STRONG AF)

Ok, ok, ok....I can't tell you how many requests I've received for a "dating" post lately.  100% disclosure -- it's cuz I've not necessarily been on any dates for quite some time.  But, there were a couple.  Since going at dating the "old fashioned" way (i.e. offline), I've eliminated about 88% of the fuck-tards that [...]

THIS IS WHY YOU’RE SUCKING AT LIFE: CLE SERIES ON HOW TO ADULT

I think I'm going to start this lesson with the number one, overarching rule on adulting:  Don't be an asshole. As we go through these lessons, just know that in the end, it all boils down to your inability to nicely live and function in society with actual human beings.  So if you're failing miserably at [...]

DEAR REAL-WORLD, CAN WE PULL A ROSS & RACHEL AND GO ON A BREAK?

Unfortunately, we do not live in a "Friends" episode, so the Ross and Rachel technique most likely won't work with reality.  That, and reality is an asshole so it's likely he (yes, I'm genderizing it, and yes, I'm pretty sure I made that word up) won't compromise.  Therefore, I wake up every day, feet to [...]

WHY YOU’RE STUPID AF: CLE SERIES ON PUTTING THE MOTHER-EFFING PHONE DOWN

Back by popular demand, here is a CLE series that I think pertains to about 90% of the human population.  It's not a controversial subject because, well, I think we all know how attached at the hand we are to our smartphones.  The sickness of this subject is that we KNOW we have a problem, [...]

LET’S JUST BE HONEST…LET’S JUST BE REAL

I'm a full believer in being impeccable with one's word. If you've never read the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, I highly suggest it. The philosophies are applicable across all elements of life and I honestly think if everyone adopted them and put them into action, we'd have a significant decrease in douchebagism in [...]

TOP 5 DUMBEST QUESTIONS: CLE SERIES ON WHAT NOT TO SAY

I know there are millions of stupid questions that people ask every day...but this entry is honing in on five that I hear repeatedly and make me feel like slapping a bitch.  If you are a human being, you should just stop asking these questions in these scenarios...period.  Let's jump right in, shall we? "How's [...]

HOW TO LIFE: CLE SERIES ON FACEBOOK ETIQUETTE

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a pretty active on Facebook/Instagram.  I like to post pics of my holidays or of my pups...People like them so I assume I'm not 'oversharing.'  I never put anything personal on FB.  Yeah, I bitch about dating sometimes, but for the most part, I'm just there to post [...]

HOW TO LIFE: CLE SERIES ON COMMON COURTESY MOFO

So, I'm from Texas.  And anyone who is a red-blooded 'Merican knows that Texans are known for their Southern Hospitality and are among the most polite and welcoming people around.  I've heard from MANY of my foreign friends that they love Texas because "everyone is just so nice."  And, for the most part, this is true, [...]
