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”
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.
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…”
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.

This is the final entry in a long-running series – texts from textsfromlastnight.com that sound like they should/could be from my friends. We’ve had a good run, but I think it’s time I move on to other fun features for you guys. So, please enjoy. (609): I literally ate pizza on a toilet and made upContinue reading “Sounds familiar”
You overhear a number of different things, but one thing remains the same: You never have any idea what they will say. They’re kind of like toddlers in that way… Case in point, overheard at a recent youth group meeting: “My mom cut our hair but we had to stop when she got my earContinue reading “When you hang out with teenagers”
Among my 6 million jobs currently getting me to the next time I have full-time employment is babysitting. I’ve been doing a lot of hanging out with children under the age of 5 this summer. And that, as you may know, can come with some great stories. Because you never know what they willContinue reading “Maybe wait a little longer…”
Can I just say, it’s amazing how much more motivation you have when you quit a job you hate and actually want to get out of bed in the morning again. Two days after I left that job, I was a member at a gym up the road from my house: Planet Fitness, which IContinue reading “49 thoughts I have had while at the gym”
So this is a new thing we’re doing here on the blog because I found some of my third-grade writings and they’re GOLDEN. I did not like a couple of the kids across the street so I don’t know which one this is referring to. And I still wish that Spray-Can Silence was real. It would haveContinue reading “#tbt: Tales of a third-grade Laura”
