2017 MANIFESTO…CAN YOU SAY ‘MANIFESTO’ WITHOUT ALERTING THE NSA? TOO LATE…I NEED THE SITE HITS ANYWAY

First and foremost, yes, that is my quote...make that shit viral.  And, yes, that is me...I have the uncanny ability to stage shots with my iPhone and Apple Watch...Secondly, it's a very good segway quote into 2017 for me...I'm currently sitting on a beach in Roatan, Honduras, glass of wine by my side, watching the [...]

HOW A STRONG WOMAN SEES A RELATIONSHIP — TYPICALLY FROM AFAR….

Any woman who is strong, independent and speaks her mind (normally) has it rough in this dating game...Crazy bitches have given "women" a bad rep -- chicks who go all psycho because they can't keep their neediness under wraps are adding to reasons why we 'normal' gals have to over analyze and keep in check [...]

I MAY BE SARCASTIC AF, BUT SOMETIMES I GET THE FEELS

Ah, the time of year where the culmination of all the experiences gathered in 2016 start to play over in my head...I wish I could say I'm an eternal optimist.  I mean, those people have their shit together and seem to have good things happen to them all the time...maybe I'll try it on for [...]

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 [...]
