WHY I DON’T BELIEVE IN SECOND CHANCES…STRIPES, TIGERS AND SHIT.

 Ah, it's been a minute...I've missed it here.  Just life has been so fucking busy that any moment I have to myself is spent on a bottle of wine and a hot bath...Let's just say, life took an interesting (and awesome) turn four weeks ago and I'm back to being in a good place.  Any [...]

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 [...]

AM I SUPPOSED TO BE LEARNING A LESSON HERE?… CUZ I’M ABOUT AS PATIENT AS A CRACKHEAD WITHOUT A LIGHTER RIGHT NOW

I'm super diligent.  I'm extremely pro-active.  I've been exerting a fuck-ton of energy into an endeavor for about 4 months now...a door opened, but then seemingly shut. Radio silence.  A promise made, then disappeared with no explanation.  I'm baffled.  And deflated.  I had a whole week of happiness...only to be right back to where I [...]

COMING DOWN OFF THE HIGH…I NOW UNDERSTAND DRUG ADDICTION

It's not gradual...I don't care what people say...It's like you're standing outside yourself on the tracks watching a freight train slam into your body and still feeling each rail wheel thump over your corpse...This is exactly what it feels like for a traveler, after being so elated during travels, to return to "real life." Well...maybe [...]

WHY I TRAVEL…FUCK THOSE KARDASHIANS

First off, I travel on a budget.  If I wanted to drop a couple grand on a fancy/schmancy all-inclusive then I better have already been to and explored that country.  When you're stuck in a resort you're really not experiencing culture...you're just being a fucking American, in a posh setting, pretending to be something/someone you're [...]

MY HIATUS AND SHIT…THE SADNESS AND MADNESS OF IT ALL

In memory of Naya, a.k.a. "The Best Dog in the World." July 30, 2001 - Sept 8, 2016 I know I'm overdue for a good post.  But life has been fairly rough.  Last week I had to make the hardest decision of my life and lay to rest my soul-mate.  Naya was literally the best [...]

LADIES, SOMETIMES IT ONLY TAKES STRIKE TWO…LOOKING…

Yea...so sometimes your lessons come in the form of heartbreak...then when you try again, that lesson comes in the form of disappointment--- in yourself.  First time, timing...second time...timing...Shame on me.  HOWEVER, NO ONE, and I mean no one, should ever lead someone to fall with no intention of catching them...if we're looking for blame, I'm [...]

REASON 5,482 AS TO WHY BEING A RESPONSIBLE ADULT SUCKS…

So.  Just got back from a weekend in Belize...I've pretty much decided that I need to be on the beach, on an island, shirking all my responsibilities ad materialistic desires.  I think the pups and I could live pretty well on a less-than-desireable paycheck in a third world country...Granted, what I WANT to do on [...]

YOU KNOW WHAT’S AWESOME…?

....nothing right now.  That's what.  For the past 8 months I've been stuck in a cycle of monotony - same shit different day.  I AM NOT A FUCKING MONOTONOUS PERSON (don't misread that as 'monogamous.')!  I can't function if my life is 'normal.'  My personality thrives on stress and adrenaline-fueled crisis management.  I thrive in [...]
