Weighing me down…

      3 Comments on Weighing me down…

Since the age of 10, I have fretted about my weight. It was at about that time that puberty began attacking my poor body. Hormones warped my sense of reality. I felt fat and awkward even though I wasn’t fat.  I didn’t really gain weight until I went off to college. It’s taken me 28 years to figure out that… Read more »

No parking, baby. No parking in the Friend Zone.

      2 Comments on No parking, baby. No parking in the Friend Zone.

I will never understand people who do this to other people. I know women do it to men. I don’t know why. I’ve heard tales of men doing it to women. Again, it’s baffling. Is it just that they aren’t grown up enough to pick one of those boxes on the “Will You Date Me” checklist? There is no maybe…. Read more »

What do you like?

      3 Comments on What do you like?

I love music. I’m pretty sure most people do too. What I cannot understand is why an adult would make fun of the music someone else likes. Sure as kids we made fun of those who liked “lame” bands, but that’s just because we were afraid someone would find out about the lame bands we liked. But, we are grown… Read more »

Stress relief?

      No Comments on Stress relief?

Did you ever have one of those days? You know where you get trapped in the elevator at work…twice. Apparently, if I’m in the building after hours, I need Mr. Wizard and his science-y knowledge to come save me from the stupid air pressure that effects the elevators when they shut off the HVAC for the night. I’m not sure… Read more »

Let’s try something different

Eleven years ago, I remember a clear, warm evening in San Francisco. I was at the Cheesecake Factory with my best friend. I think we had just come back from a trip to Las Vegas to celebrate her birthday. It was my aunt’s birthday and I had forgotten to call her to wish her a Happy Birthday, but I knew… Read more »

A Year in the Life of Me

      No Comments on A Year in the Life of Me

This time last year things began to change for me…all for the better. At times it didn’t feel like it. First I got a new job. That was awesome. I still love it, but it will always just be a job. Then I got kicked out of my house. That sounds like I did something to deserve eviction. I didn’t…. Read more »

Men just don’t get it

      4 Comments on Men just don’t get it

I’m not bashing men. I’m just saying that they haven’t got a clue when it comes to fear. The moment I step outside of my home, I’m afraid. Heck, sometimes even inside my home I’m afraid. What am I afraid of? Nothing specific has happened to me. But, I mean, have you seen the news? At any moment, I could… Read more »
