Happy birthday, best friend!

Charlie, Today you turn ONE YEAR OLD! What?! Just yesterday you were our little baby and now you’re a big kid! It seems as if you’ve just gotten here but at the same time, as if we’ve never known life without you! I’ve been wanting to write something to you on here, especially, to keepContinue reading “Happy birthday, best friend!”

Forever a bookworm

Buckle up for some humblebragging. I could read before kindergarten. In fact, when I went into kindergarten, I once got in trouble for reading the teacher’s lesson plans. THAT WERE IN CURSIVE. In first grade, during reading time, the teacher sent me to the class with fourth- and fifth-graders to read with them. All throughContinue reading “Forever a bookworm”

New year, who dis

I’ve never been one to make a big deal out of New Year’s Eve.

A Book on Dating

I’ve tossed around a couple book ideas off and on in the past couple of years, and I really want to write one of essays just about my life because I’m funny and interesting shit occasionally happens to me. The other one is most definitely going to be about dating. I mentioned it in aContinue reading “A Book on Dating”

And people wonder why it’s so hard to find love these days

Seriously, Dad, I warned you. Don’t read this one. Skip it. OK. So. It’s been a while, but you know I’ve gotten on and then off and then on Bumble like 4 times since I last told you about it. Anymore, it’s almost solely for blog content. Other options are funny stories either for myContinue reading “And people wonder why it’s so hard to find love these days”
