Psychos Anonymous: A One-Step Program

I had a rough day yesterday. Why? I couldn’t tell you what triggered it absolutely. Lack of sleep? Not eating enough? I was an emotional wreck, swinging through moods faster than Tarzan travels through the jungle on those vines of his. I was insecure, irritable, I cried 5 separate times (one of which was in [...]

How to spot a Gentleman: A letter to 18-year-old me (and some of my 20+-year-old friends)

Sorry, this is so late guys. I was busy looking for a gentleman on which to base my blog this week. KIDDING. I’m surrounded by plenty of wonderful gentlemen, one of whom is the real reason my blog is so late this week. The real reason I’m so late is that I spent the weekend [...]

The E in Easter is for Embarrassment

Happy Easter to my favorite reader! (Hint: that’s you.) On this Easter Sunday, the day that Christians believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead, I thought I would bring something of my own back from the dead: my embarrassment. (Yes, I know that was a terrible joke and I’m sorry if I have offended anyone. [...]

Peas Out, Cub Scout

Believe it or not, as you are reading this, I am out of the country. Yes, again. Peace out, USA. Two months short of a year since my last excursion outside of the US, I’m at it again, crossing borders.  This time I’m flying across the pond with a bit more luggage in tow. My [...]

There has been this “Best Nine [...]

To Choose or Not To Choose

I’ve been thinking a lot about choice lately. Our ability “to select freely and after consideration,” as defined by the Merriam-Webster's dictionary. Life is literally a giant Choose-Your-Own-Adventure. We face millions of choices every day.  Some small, some large.  Do I get out of bed and put on pants and go interact with the rest [...]

Overthink.  Overthank.  Overthunk.

If there is one thing I definitely do well, it’s think.  My brain works about 600 times faster than the rest of my body at all times.  Usually, this leads to embarrassing situations where I mash words together, freeze up entirely because my brain and mouth refuse to work in tandem, or sometimes can’t sleep [...]

Weighing Happy

I had my annual physical at the doctor’s office this week.  Let me tell you, there is only one professional that I hate more than doctors, and that’s the dentist.  So you can imagine my dread as I got up early on Friday morning to head to my early appointment before work. I get there, [...]
