Advice is not always advice

      1 Comment on Advice is not always advice

I’m always flattered when people ask me for advice. Personally, I don’t know much. Well, I know what my family has taught me, learned from the mistakes I’ve made and feel what my gut tells me.

Of Birthdays and Happiness

      1 Comment on Of Birthdays and Happiness

Today, is my birthday. It’s pretty much the best birthday ever. I just wish it didn’t take 39 years to happen. However, I am NOT complaining. Yes, I’m in my last year of my 30s.

Total Bunk: An Open Letter to Susan A. Patton

Flabbergasted. At first, when I heard about what you wrote in the Princetonean, I thought, “That has to be a joke. No woman with half of a brain and any sense of self-esteem would say those stupid things.” Seeing no reference to The Onion, I grew angry. There are so many things wrong with what you wrote. I’m not even… Read more »
