Two simple words that can have so many different meanings. In this case, I don’t mean it in a nasty way, like “Get lost, you scoundrel!” (does anyone even say scoundrel anymore?) I literally mean get lost. Put the Google Maps away, take out your earbuds and just. get. lost. We’ve been on a roller… Continue reading Get lost.
It has been way too long since I’ve moved my thoughts from my brain to my fingers. People often say that they’re busy, and it becomes a catch-all for not doing the things you want to do. “Let’s do lunch!” “Can’t, I’m busy.” “Call me sometime!” “Sure thing, if I’m not too busy.” “Come watch… Continue reading Busy
I am FINALLY getting around to writing this. I guess that’s what happens when life gets in the way. New Year’s in May! Literally, only five months (to the day) late. Because adulting is real, yo.

It’s past midnight on a now-Thursday morning. I’m trying to get over whatever cold-flu-virus thing decided to invade my body last week. My mind won’t shut up and I’m wide awake. Which kind of stinks since I know that I’ll have to be up in about six hours to get ready for work. But I… Continue reading The blank spaces
Why is it we panic when we realize next year is a “milestone” birthday? Shouldn’t all birthdays be milestones? “Hey, you survived another year … yay you!
