Top 10 reasons I haven’t been blogging

10) TECHNOLOGY I don’t own a computer – not one that works, anyway. My Macbook is from the year Two Thousand and Six, back when dinosaurs roamed the Internet. It barely turns on. Work has provided me with the privilege (?) of a PC laptop that blows hot air like [insert politician of choice], and…

Hammerhead over heels

Just a few days ago, this is where I was: The Gulf coast of Florida is something amazing. White sands and clear water and slushy drinks and hammerhead sharks that ALMOST EAT YOU. No joke, Miranda and I were up to our waists in the water when people on the shore started yelling and motioning…

Into April

Whoa. I disappeared from the blog for a while there. But now it’s a new week, a new month, and I’m back – at least for today. Can I be honest? I’m glad to have March behind me. March held some wonderful things, but it was a crazy month in which it felt like every…

Ins-and-outs

Lately, I’ve been using this space for a lot of personal processing, and just realized that I’ve neglected to update you on some of my actual goings-on. Yes, I am just that pompous to believe that the world is desperate to know about the ins-and-outs of my everyday life – so without further ado… 1)…

The steady season

Yesterday, a relatively new acquaintance asked me, “What do you want to do with your life?” She was asking about my career path, I suppose – to which my answer is always a shoulder shrug. I’ve never been one with a bullseye plan for my professional life – I just try to do my very…

Finally Friday

I don’t know about you, but for me, this week has been insane. Last Friday, we finished moving my sister Becca out of the house (she’s getting married a week from tomorrow – how is this happening?). On Saturday, we got a new roommate (Melissa – she is wonderful and blond and adorable). January 7…

Re-solutions

Last Tuesday morning, I poured myself a cup of coffee and crawled back into bed. To be fair, this is what I do every single morning (don’t judge my self-indulgences, except when they include reality TV). But Tuesday was no ordinary day – Tuesday was New Year’s Day, which means I needed to make my…

Stuck

When I turned 30, I had the sinking realization that no one was going to fix me. I had long harbored the belief – although perhaps not consciously – that someday, something was going to shift, and I would no longer be broken/sad/angry/afraid/lonely/insecure/what-have-you. Believing that someday things would change somehow made it easier to accept…

Girl, interrupted

… and we’re back. I thought about making a video to give a glimpse into my life in November, but if I had, it would have been full of long, drawn out silences and artsy frames of my face staring off into nowhere.  Trust me, I respect you more than to put you through that.…

Tuesday love

BOOK I just finished reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed.  I can’t tell you what this book did to my heart.  I can tell you that wherever life takes me next, I’m going on a major backpacking trip first.  If you know me at all, you’ve already heard me talk about it. SONG Say what you…
