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 [...]

OUR COUNTRY IS ROYALLY FUCKED…

I'm just going to jump right into this explanation:  Our country is royally fucked because the only two options we have for our future President is a potential felon and a narcissistic racist.   That ol' addage "lesser of two evils" is really hard to gauge here because both options will spiral our country into [...]

BLESSINGS…THOSE LITTLE THINGS THAT WE TAKE FOR GRANTED WHEN SHIT GETS ALL TWISTED

FIRST up -- I need to set the record straight.  I've said this before, and trust me, I appreciate the reach, but just because I write about dating or being single or whatevs, doesn't mean that THAT is the focal point of my life.  In fact, if I'm honest, it's a total of 2% of [...]

STUCK…WHY BEING HUMAN SUCKS BALLS A LOT OF THE TIME

This kid's situation pretty much sums up my life these days...feeling like I'm stuck in the shitter while someone laughs their ass off and takes time-freezing photos of my precarious situation so they can one day pull out the precious keepsake and show it around to the world to prove how fucked up I was at [...]

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 [...]

PAUSING FOR POSSIBLE TEMPORARY INSANITY…

I'm still around...Just been completely overwhelmed by life in general.  I'll get my shit together soon enough.  Too much hit me at once and I'm trying to sort out the aftermath...I'm still a bad ass -- just a slightly crazy one at the moment.  I'm sure, in time, life will return to some sort of [...]
