Goodbye, For Now

This little bloggy, blog has been my favorite adventure for the past two years. I’ve ranted, whined, and complained my way into “adulthood” through this guy. While the majority of it was nonsense word vomit, it was special to me because it was the first time I tried putting myself out there on the internet.…

“I’m Just Not Meant for a Desk Job”

This is arguably the most annoying thing that people say to me when I tell them about my job. I explain to them how I spend 8+ hours sitting in a beige cubicle, staring at my dual-monitors, writing technical documents for heating and cooling equipment and their response is often, Oof, I could never do…

I’m not Adult Enough for Adulting

Dude, being an adult is freaking terrifying. I remember the good old days when none of my decisions held much weight. Will I join the track team or do the spring play? Will I break up for real with my boyfriend I see once a week or will we hold on just a little longer?…

A Love Letter to Me

If you’ve been keeping up with me, then you know that last year was not my best year. It was actually pretty terrible. Like, a heaping pile of cooked carrots. So, I’m going into 2018 with only one resolution: Like myself. I know it sounds super cheesy and vague, but it’s not as easy as it…

I was staring at a row of multiplication problems and I didn’t have the slightest idea of how…

I Tried Writing a Book

WHOA, looks who’s back? (It’s me. I’m back) It’s been over a month since I filled your feed with nonsense and emotional ramblings. So, where have I have I been? I’ve been writing a book! Or rather, trying to. For those of you who don’t know, November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo, if you’re…

10 Ways My Inner April Ludgate Comes Out at Work

At work, I think it’s important to be professional and keep emotion out of things. I try to go in with a positive attitude and have good interactions with the co-workers. However, I can’t help what goes on inside of me. Somewhere, tucked behind the optimism, there is an April Ludgate hiding in my core.…

#HowIWillChange Isn’t Asking for Much

If you didn’t feel a pain in your chest over the past couple of days reading stories of #metoo, then you might not have a soul. Scrolling through my feed and seeing that blue hashtag over and over was a reminder that so many of us have shared this experience. My only wish is that…
