In honor of the holiday we’re doing this a day early. Check out this journal entry from 26 (!!!) years ago. Note the line near the bottom about how “Some people ONLY get Valentines from their parents.” This is still something I’m working through.
Five years ago this week, I signed up as a volunteer for the Special Olympics Kentucky State Basketball Tournament. Next weekend, I’m going to be watching a team I coach participate in that tournament. Four years ago, I was starting to get more involved with the organization – but hadn’t yet found my place. IContinue reading “Lost and found”
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…”
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”
You guys, it’s hard to date these days. Anyone who says otherwise, well, send them my way then, because I obviously need a coach. Where’s Hitch when you need him? I don’t remember exactly when I got it but I have been on Tinder, I believe, for about 10 months now. And it’s been anContinue reading “The Tinder Chronicles Pt. 2”

Best parts (in myContinue reading “(Getting out of) my own way”
Feelin’ a little low and frozen from the previous and present Snowpocalypses? Look at this adorableness and let it warm your heart.
Once upon a time, like in any fairy tale, your heroine had had just about enough of trying to date the regular way. Fresh off the latest situation that had started out great and ended horribly (as they all do in these stories), she decided to try something new, because what the hell. And byContinue reading “Tinderella”
So the last time I actually sat down and wrote something for this blog was in September. And it was about my family’s dog, Lucy. The reason I haven’t really written since September also has to do with a dog. Only this time it’s my dog. That I am solely in charge of. Yes youContinue reading “Wild Man Charlie”
Dear Lucy, I miss my roommate. I’m not talking the ones who lived upstairs and yelled at me sometimes for feeding you too many marshmallows. I miss the roommate that slept at the foot of my bed for over a year and when you weren’t perched there, you were in the doorway of my bedroom,Continue reading “Dear Lucy”
