Only the coolest 8-year-olds had Walkmans. And spoiled toddlers, apparently. I don’t know how I thought I was going to pay for one for her on her sixth birthday (two months away at this point). That was obviously a lie to make me look good in front of Mrs. Kleinhans.
When I was younger, I could sleep hard. I slept all the time and it was hard to wake me up. I slept through the worst thunderstorms. Also, fun family events. Sometimes outdoors. Exhibit A: Exhibit B: (This one is from the Derby Festival’s Great Balloon Race one year and I obviously was real intoContinue reading “You think I’m sleep? I ain’t sleep.”
The night before, I got nervous. The morning of, I got real nervous. I think I went to the bathroom 11 times. And then I was nervous about being nervous because nervous poops. This is my life, y’all. I wore my new running leggings. I congratulated myself for choosing the long-sleeve shirt because it wasContinue reading “I did it all for the banana. And the Thanksgiving sides.”

Give it a read after you’re done with this. I got a Fitbit last Christmas. I’d been having troubleContinue reading “Like riding a bike”
Third-grade Laura is a damn liar. This does, however, document my first attempt at bullshitting an assignment – a trend that continued well through college.
There are a LOT of fun side effects to having anxiety and depression simultaneously. 1. That thing where your legs almost never stop moving when you’re sitting still – If this helped my running at all, I’d be at a marathon level right now instead of 5K. 2. All of the thoughts all of theContinue reading “Wherein I was an angry elf for a lil bit”
I cannot believe it’s been a year. I cannot believe how much has changed in that year. 365 days ago, I walked away from a steady paycheck, health insurance and a chance to go to the Derby for free every year (ha), because none of those things were worth me staying in a job IContinue reading “#tbt, a little early”
I was a Democrat from way back – obvs. And thought this fitting to share since H-dogg just won Kentucky in the primary this week.. Favorite part? “I went crazy!” #nerd
