Turns Out I Don’t Mix Well With Others

As we may all recall from my recent posts, I recently went on a solo cruise AND I am terrible at talking to people. If you have no idea what I’m talking about I suggest you go back and catch up on the reading assignments from this week. (SEE: How Are You Still Single? Oh,

I Made It Out Of My First Solo Cruise With All Of My Organs Intact

Well.. Remember, like, two posts ago when I was longing for my next cruise and I thought it wouldn’t be until January of next year? WE WERE ALL WRONG! I would turn out that cruises get REALLY cheap during the fall when all the kids go back to school. I ended up snagging a really

Scandal on the High Seas; or, My Perfect Day at CocoCay

Y’all if you ever want to wildly scandalize an entire cruise ship from your fellow passengers right through the captain of the ship- you should skip out on visit CocoCay. I should mention that I highly doubt that Captain Gus really cared whether I got off the ship in CocoCay but I’d like to believe

BOAT! BOAT! BOAT! I’M ON A BOAT!

Let us flash back January 15, 2020 when I had a complete mental breakdown and booked a cruise to “celebrate*” my 35th birthday. I was pumped and wouldn’t shut up about it. I even wrote a post about how much I was planning to be as obnoxious as possible about it. Nothing is worse than

The World Cancelled My Cruise and I Lost My Damn Mind

It shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone but… my cruise got cancelled. I was really holding out hope that we’d be sailing in May but when the CDC extended their “no sail” guidelines another 100 days it was pretty much a given that I wouldn’t be sipping colorful drinks on a ship deck anytime

There is Nothing Worse than Me Right after Booking a Cruise

So does anyone else just have a full on mental breakdown and book a cruise? Nope? Just me? That’s cool. The conversation with Ashley-Michelle on January 15th when I woke her up with a phone call: ME: Okay, I’m having a meltdown, do you think you’ll have cruise money by this deadline? HER: Yeah, for

We’re Getting Married Now, Those Are the Rules

Apparently, you haven’t lived until you’ve gone on a cruise with me. At least this is the general consensus among our friends after Ashley-Michelle and I returned from the Bahamas. Truth be told, we actually had a low-key time which is what we wanted. The two of us were exhausted and overworked and just needed

Instant Blogger, Just Add Food

I learned a powerful lesson about blogging yesterday and that was that you should never do it on an empty stomach. I was writing while quite hangry yesterday and it resulted in a very interesting post that I refused to delete and leave alone. I was in some kind of mood and I stand by

Becoming a Backstreet Boy and Making Out With Dolphins

It’s been just under a month since I went on my 3-night cruise to the Bahamas and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t paying regular visits to the Royal Caribbean web site in an effort to plan my next escape. Frankly, if I had the money I’d jump on one of the fall

To Blog, or Not to Blog? That Is the Question

MY VACATION IS COMING MY VACATION IS COMING!!! If I’m being real, I’m honestly really excited about seeing my sister. I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw her and my best guess is that it was sometime around November of 2015. I would like to pretend there’s no way that could be right
