I’ve Never…

This entry was originally posted February 2014, but part of my Spring Cleaning made me realize it was left in draft/hidden status, despite being complete. Enjoy my silly confession! 🙂 When I was in college, I was introduced to the “I’ve Never” game during a sleepover with my sorority sisters. The concept is pretty simple, where […]

Getting Back on Track

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written anything new and I’ve been telling myself any number of excuses to explain why I’d stopped writing, but the time for excuses is over and I’m committing to getting back in the habit again. Lately with my work and school schedule, as well as my need to […]

True Confession #7: Watching TV is My “Hidden Superpower”

A few months ago, while discussing tv shows that a couple of friends and I were each watching or getting caught up on, I accidentally outed what is probably my biggest guilty pleasure, and which also doubles as a sort of hidden talent: my ability to catch up on entire seasons of television in as […]

The Awkwardness of BYOB

With the end of summer approaching (I think we still have a few weeks until the official start of fall, but Labor Day has always been the “end of summer” marker in my book), I’ve noticed an influx of invitations to barbecues and other social gatherings pop up in my inbox. I’m always happy to […]

A Bit of Nostalgia

A Bit of Nostalgia

I don’t often write about my love of music, other than the occasional mention here and there, but I can rarely go a day without listening to some type of music. At work, I’m stuck with whatever is playing on the speakers and has been mandated by corporate as appropriate and necessary, so I often […]

Moving Forward

I’ve learned that change is inevitable, and while some changes I’ve accepted kicking and screaming, others I’ve fully embraced. In the last month or so I’ve had to make some pretty big decisions regarding work, friendships/relationships, and the possibility of moving. Some of those decisions aren’t yet final, but will hopefully be resolved soon. While […]

Shameless Movie Obsession Confession: Pitch Perfect

A few months ago, I watched a little movie that was released last year (2012) that you may have heard of: Pitch Perfect. Since that afternoon viewing, I can’t seem to get the songs from the movie out of my head. I went into watching this movie with reservations, because I assumed it was going to […]

A New Adventure Every Single Day

A New Adventure Every Single Day

For the last year or so (maybe longer), I’ve mentally adopted a philosophy of trying to have some sort of adventure every day. I recently shared this philosophy and was excited to discover the person I was talking to has a similar approach to life (and it felt a little like we were odd kindred […]


About 9 or 10 months ago I made the decision to give up coffee, and other than a small cup on special occasions like Christmas morning breakfast, I was doing quite well living without coffee, or other heavily caffeinated drinks in my life. Until about 3 weeks ago, when I purchased coffee and creamer to […]

True Confession #6: My Addiction to Victoria’s Secret

One of many of the little pink bags I've accumulated over the years. This one happens to be from today and still contains my purchases, wrapped up like a present.

Most of the time when I need to make a purchase, I choose the route of online ordering (normally amazon) over physically going into a store.   My one exception to this rule is when it comes to purchasing underwear and other lingerie (and of course household items and groceries). When it comes to my […]

My Top 10 Indulgences

Something I’ve learned is that having a few things you indulge in every once in a while go a long way towards having a better outlook overall. The last couple of weeks I’ve been in a little bit of a funk  (that’s one of the reasons I haven’t been writing as much), and realized that […]

True Confession #5: I Watched a Reality TV Show… and Liked It

I’ve always been pretty judgmental when it comes to reality tv, because for the most part it is mindless television exploiting some oddity of society and making it popular (Jersey Shore, Real Housewives, Toddlers & Tiaras, Honey Boo Boo just to name a few). Exceptions have been made for shows like The Bachelor/The Bachelorette as […]

True Confession #4: I’ve Never Seen the Original Star Wars Movies

While I’m in the mood to share some of my embarrassing confessions (my fascination with dressing up my dog, my hypochondria, and my old-person tendencies), sharing what is one of the most embarrassing only seems fitting today. I’ve never watched (that I can remember) any of the original Star Wars films. I should be ashamed of […]

All Dressed Up and No Place to Go

I take a lot of pictures of my dog doing various things, not because he’s really that interesting, but because he’s really stinking cute and can’t complain when I bust out the camera to record his crazy antics. At some point in time after I adopted Jasper, I decided dressing him up in cute sweaters […]

True Confession #3: Commitment Issues

Once I’ve set my mind to something, I am usually able to commit to whatever it may be until it’s finished. Recently, I’ve experienced a roadblock in my efforts to commit to something pretty minor: wall art or furniture for the empty walls in my apartment. My older sister helped me out a bunch in […]

True Confessions #2: I’m Secretly (or not so secretly) an Old Lady at Heart

A running joke that seems to follow me not only at work, but also among various friends and family is that I’m secretly a 90-year-old woman trapped in the body of a 28-year-old. The jesting is always done in good fun, so I never get upset when referred to as “granny,” “g-ma,” or any other […]

Blame it on the Alcohol

When under the influence of a couple (or more) adult beverages, I think most people will do things that are a little out of their normal behavior. Knowing that I am in fact a lightweight when it comes to all things containing any alcohol, I have been a responsible imbiber for the most part since […]

True Confessions #1: I Might be a Little Bit of a Hypochondriac

This may come as a total surprise to some, but in certain situations, I’m can be just a teensy tiny bit of a hypochondriac. Any time I start to even feel the inkling of a cold coming on, I’ll bust out the cough drops, cold & flu medicine, and start drinking hot tea (usually an […]
