My Second Chance at Falling In Love with Taylor Swift (Even Though She’s A Zombie)

I was a very different person back in 2008 and I will be the first to admit it. I was a year away from finishing college with a pile of debt and two degrees, I was working in a job that I hated and was slowly sucking my soul out of my body, and I

This is Supposed to be Fun, Right?

I have, admittedly, been on the struggle bus when it comes to finding what my own personal “new normal” looks like. You’d think that after a year of adapting to all the fun new buzzwords that I personally can’t wait to never hear again. These include (but are not limited to): Social Distancing, Quarantine, Lockdown,

My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Yard

Just in case you’re having a rough week, I’ve decided that I’ll brighten your day with some pictures of baby goats. Well, just one baby goat. Over the holidays, I had the pleasure of getting to know the folks at Machado Farm Foundation who both rescue animals and serve to educate the general public about

128 Days Later

If I had a dollar for every time I have told myself I was going to write an update in the last 128 days… I’d probably have like a thousand dollars. I have been yelling at myself a lot but the desire to sit down and try to be fun and witty on the internet

Finding My New Normal

As I mentioned in yesterday’s ramblings- I’m officially out of work due to the COVID. It’s not a cute little furlough like we had back in March, it’s a full-on layoff. For the first time in 20 years I have no job, no plan, and no idea what’s coming next. Strangely- I’m kinda okay with

Lockdown Part 2: The Revenge of the Rona

There is really nothing better than living in a country that doesn’t take a global pandemic seriously. It’s really a step above living in a state that doesn’t take a global pandemic seriously. My favorite part was when we became an epicenter and a global laughing stock. According to the CDC website as of sitting

I’m a Terrible Influence on My Virtual Friends

So… I, like much of humanity, have become obsessed with Animal Crossing. I really never saw this coming. But the problem is I’m starting to become a horrible influence on my villagers in the most innocent way possible… if that’s even a thing. For those not playing (really?) here’s what I’m referring to. Once you

The Return of the Basic White Girls (And They’re Pissed)(But Not Really)

For any of this post to make sense you’re going to need to flash back to this lovely post from last month: “Do You Want Basic White Girls? Because This is How You Get Basic White Girls!” TL;DR: Someone randomly left a case of White Claw on my doorstep and I still have no idea

Don’t Mistake My Silence for Complacency: I’m Still Learning

For so many reasons, it is a strange time to be a blogger. Over the past couple months my writing has almost slowed to a halt and if my Instagram account was a child, I’m certain social services would have taken it away from me by now. I’m still active on my Twitter because it’s

A Walk Down Memory Lane; or, 5 Kids Fight Off An Alien Invasion

It all started in a Scholastic book fair, like most things did in the 90’s. That book fair was pretty much the greatest thing in the history of the universe. Do they still do them? They do. Apparently they are a nightmare for the people at the school running it but it’s Christmas come early
