RANT: I am not also a client.
I always believe, initially, that everyone is lying to me.
I was always sort of distrustful of people anyway, but since teaching rhetoric I've learned to listen a lot more clearly to what people say. And since I have a insatiable curiosity... Read more
I can math, and you can too!
It's Friday. And thank God. My freshman have been a bunch of little punks all week. Someone, somewhere along the line, convinced them that they could receive and F and still pass the class. I'd like to find out who this person is and punch t... Read more
Holy Crap! Yes, I am still alive. No, I have not given up blogging, just taken a small hiatus. Sometimes life gets in the way, and much as I have dreams of becoming the next "Hyperbole and a Half" and making bajillions of dolares with which to... Read more
Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck.
Okay, most times I feel like I'm stuck.
I have to kind of force myself to do certain things. Nothing ever naturally "happens" for me. I gotta work friggin' hard. And when I don't, well, things just d... Read more
This has been an angry week for me.
Like, really angry. As I went through each day I felt like any moment would be THE moment and I would turn into the Hulk and begin to smash. And although green is my color, I am not nearly as charming a... Read more
So, I stepped on the scale this morning, and I lost another pound (after particularly grueling plateau involving a knee injury in the work parking lot and the emotional need for wine). Sadly, it was just one. I have visions of myself being bac... Read more
Sunlight helps us grow...
People of the interwebs: I have not died.
Some of you may have noticed that my Facebook "disappeared" over the last week. No, I did not unfriend you, no I do not hate you, no I am not being bratty. (Okay, maybe a little bratty.)
I jus... Read more
So I reflected on my last entry a bit. It seems so far away now.
I mean, both literally (it was from January 7th) and figuratively (as in, my brain is on the fritz again).
Yesterday, I woke up in a foul mood. Now this is not uncommon... Read more
A dose of positivity...
So I've turned over a new leaf. A new tree, actually. A lot has happened since my last blog. I've been MIA for a month(ish). I had tried moving my blog to another platform and posting a link to it on FB because my readership had grown so muc... Read more
Well call me butter, 'cause I'm on a blogging roll.
It's therapeutic. It allows me to complain and contemplate without taking up people's time (they can choose to ignore my posts if they like. Though they shouldn't 'cause I'm awesome).

Look at the flowers...
This is going to be an actual health-reflective entry: I need motivation.
Like any other modern-day, tech-obsessed individual, of course I have Googled the sh*t out of this subject. (Side note: starting any Google search with "how to..." i... Read more
So I read an article yesterday that said, "If you're stuck in a creative rut, look to your left. Whatever object you see, think about how your life may relate to that object." This sounds completely ridiculous and makes me question it's credib... Read more
And behind door number three...
It has become apparent to me that I live in a fantasy world.
Allow me to explain. Or at least try to.
In my brain, it's like a long hallway with multiple doors. Depending on my mood, opening any one of these doors will lead me to a l... Read more
How do you spell "minutia"?
I have an irrational fear of falling.
I wear heels pretty frequently, but that's only a part of the fear. Too many times I have tripped over my own feet, rolled and ankle, or lost my balance, and high heels had absolutely nothing to do wit... Read more
