The Story of Doubt and Dirty Clothes

Comparing your success to someone else’s success is a slow descent into hellfire, not unlike doing your laundry. Exclusively when, like me, your washer and dryer are in a deep dark pit beneath the shared apartment you’re renting.   I’ve fallen down the steps and blindly fondled cobwebs like it’s my job (note: would be a…… Continue reading The Story of Doubt and Dirty Clothes

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow: The Story of Dead Squirrels and my 26th Birthday

I turned 26 last week. The day before my birthday, I went to a client meeting with my shirt on inside out. Even once I realized, I never changed. It’s some kind of metaphor for how I live my life: inside out and generally OK with it. Instead of a 25 lessons learned by 25 type…… Continue reading Here Today, Gone Tomorrow: The Story of Dead Squirrels and my 26th Birthday

Christmas Angel (No, Not Tim Allen): The Story of Mrs. Claus

As of late, I’ve been in a bit of a blogging slump. Maybe because I’m in the process of moving and have a lot of other stuff on my mind, like the exploding washing machine, which by the way, I’m thinking of writing a two-person *musical about. Or maybe my slump started when the temperature…… Continue reading Christmas Angel (No, Not Tim Allen): The Story of Mrs. Claus

Flashback Friday: The Story of How I Almost Died in a Canyon with a Mormon Whose Name I Never Got

Story time! Last summer, my boyfriend and I drove cross-country for 6 weeks. We made a big circle, going south, west, up the coast, back east and home again. One of my favorite memories is of the time we almost died in Utah. Let’s begin… Chapter 1 – NOPE We stop at Zion National Park,…… Continue reading Flashback Friday: The Story of How I Almost Died in a Canyon with a Mormon Whose Name I Never Got

Battle of Two Gardens: The Story of Me and My Boyfriend

I flew to Florida to visit my boyfriend this weekend and acknowledged something I’ve probably known for a while. My boyfriend is a French garden and I am an English garden. Allow me to explain. French gardens are about harnessing nature and creating order and symmetry, like the gardens at the Palace of Versailles, which…… Continue reading Battle of Two Gardens: The Story of Me and My Boyfriend

My Violent Muse: The Story of How Poetry Tries to Kill Me

  My muse is violent. Some writer’s muses seduce them, or hold their hand through the creative process. But my muse, let’s call her Wanda, is a real bastard. She plagues my brain and if I don’t do what she wants, she shits on my pillow. Wanda gives me headaches, stomach aches, pimples, and an…… Continue reading My Violent Muse: The Story of How Poetry Tries to Kill Me

Fashion Week for a Writer: The Story of a Style Icon

Correct me if I’m wrong, but this week was NY Fashion Week. What an exciting time! Celebrating new trends and bold designs and…other stuff. I don’t totally get it, but I really do have a serious respect for some of those designers. However, as a writer who works from home, I have my own version…… Continue reading Fashion Week for a Writer: The Story of a Style Icon

Happiness is like Twerking: The Story of What To Do When You Feel Blue

Are you feeling blue? Well, call me Billy Mays (RIP) because I’m here to get rid of that stain. Watch how this post unleashes of the power of wine (and some other less important stuff), making tough stains (your blue-ness) disappear like magic. For me, happiness is a bit like twerking. Some people have mastered…… Continue reading Happiness is like Twerking: The Story of What To Do When You Feel Blue

Role Model: The Story of My Questionable Influences

I’ve been thinking about my role models lately – people I look up to, but can also relate to. A lot of them are artists, peace-makers, or champions of a cause. Our history has no shortage of leaders and innovators, of great beauties and even greater brains. But I think my biggest role model is a fictional character.…… Continue reading Role Model: The Story of My Questionable Influences

Beautifully Average: The Story of How Everyone At Panera Bothered Me

I probably shouldn’t have a blog. I’m scatter-brained, mildly inappropriate, and most days I lead an exceptionally average life. But then I went to Panera and witnessed a murder. No, just kidding. But I did go to Panera and I almost committed a murder. So, I’m sitting by this loud couple who keeps talking, shouting…… Continue reading Beautifully Average: The Story of How Everyone At Panera Bothered Me
