I did it all for the banana. And the Thanksgiving sides.

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.”

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

I do not judge those people who fill the gym on the first few days of January. Yes, it’s harder to find a spot and you may have to wait a minute for the machine you want, but good on them for making a change. And I hope it’s a change that sticks. For allContinue reading “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

In case you’re curious as to how my dating life is going…

I had this metaphor in mind for how online dating was like Pokemon Go, but not in a good way, because you catch all of the crazies and you don’t want to and then I realized I may not understand Pokemon Go and it all fell apart. But I also don’t really understand dating theseContinue reading “In case you’re curious as to how my dating life is going…”

Like riding a bike

David Sedaris has this great story about getting a Fitbit and basically how his OCD is mainly what keeps pushing him to not only hit his step goal but blow it out of the water completely. 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”

Wherein I was an angry elf for a lil bit

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”

#tbt, a little early

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”

Wherein I learn a lot about history and once again consider my dreams of being in a musical

You guys. I am going to go ahead and call for my own intervention. I can’t stop listening to Hamilton. Trust me, I have tried. There were a few days where I listened to Lemonade on repeat just to remind myself there is other music out there. But it didn’t last. I mean, look atContinue reading “Wherein I learn a lot about history and once again consider my dreams of being in a musical”

We’re worried about you, Justin Timberlake

Now that my sisters and I are older and all out of the house, it’s harder to get the whole fam-damily together for a vacation. Schedules are all over the place and Sami and Austin are in a different city now and Rachel and Chuckie were and it’s just…life. The last time we were allContinue reading “We’re worried about you, Justin Timberlake”
