Obligatory 1-4-14 Post

I don’t really have anything to say right now, but I just wanted to get one of my “numbers” posts in.  Can’t break a longstanding tradition now, can I?! Hope everyone had a nice New Years.  We head back to Raleigh in the morning after a nice week with my family in New York.

Obligatory 11-12-13 Post

Here we are, another fun date post.  I don’t really have a super lot going on right now, but I’ll try to make this as interesting as possible. Since Jay and I officially moved into our new home on September 28, things have been crazy.  We are still not completely unpacked, though things are starting […]

Let’s Be Professional

I saw this controversy reported on Gawker on Monday.  I know I’m a few days behind on weighing in, but as someone who wishes they were a journalist and someone who considers themselves a blogger, I really wanted to bring it up for discussion.  As the story goes, a female investigative reporter named Shea Allen […]

Bitch or Ho?

I know I Tweeted this last week, but I thought it was worth putting the question out there for discussion. So while we were driving back from New York, Jay and I heard Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” on New York City radio station Z100.  You know the “You the hottest bitch in this place” line […]

10,000 Feet Up!

I’m posting this right now from my AirTran flight from Atlanta to Minneapolis.  It’s the first time I can remember ever using Wifi on a flight.  Sure, it was $10 but after spending over 4 hours in ATL with no Internet but my phone’s Internet, I figured it was worth for the next 2 hours.  […]

A Quick Note About the End of the World

Since the world is supposedly ending sometime today on 12/21/12, I decided to do a little bit of research into the whole subject and since I apparently can’t get enough of reading my own words lately, I figured I’d share what I’ve learned.  At least I’m wasting a good 3 minutes of your day, no?  […]

New Haircut 2.0

I cut my  hair again on Saturday.  There wasn’t really any reason for it other than I liked how it looked when I cut it back at the end of October and wanted to dare to go a bit shorter this time.  I’ve gained that inevitable winter weight that I can’t seem to avoid no […]

The End of the Election

FINALLY, the election is over.  No more great Facebook divide for another four years.  I took a much more removed position on the election this year because there were very strong issues about both candidates that I did not like at all.  It was amazing to see how worked up people got over certain issues […]

PSA About PayPal

Some of you may know how much I don’t like PayPal.  I hate that they can be in control of your money but not be subject to US banking laws and regulations.  I find that mad sketchy and I think some of their practices are downright criminal.  And YES, I have had some really fucking […]

emotionally challenging

I’ve been angry lately.  It’s permeated through my entire being and affected my aura.  I find my anger materializing in unexpected ways because I have no outlet for it.  I can’t be mad at God because he may retaliate at my lack of faith.  Working out or a glass of wine doesn’t help.  Instead, I […]
