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.

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”

The Hardest Thing

For the past year, I’ve started and stopped writing this post. Couldn’t bring myself to do it, say it, whatever… It’s not that I wasn’t constantly thinking about it because I was. I am. All the time. Around this time a year ago, I made a hard choice. I said goodbye to Charlie, the firstContinue reading “The Hardest Thing”
