My Favorite “Woo Woo Hippy Doo” iPhone Apps

  Dream Journal Ultimate I have been using Dream Journal Ultimate for over a year now. It’s honestly the most reliable part of my morning routine! Before I started journaling my dreams, I maybe remembered one or two dreams a month — now, I sometimes remember up to 3 different dreams a night! In the…

The Instagram Depression Cure

  I am  L I V I N G  for Instagram lately.   A lot of people say that Instagram causes depression. O…kay? I guess it’s like, when you look at other people’s pictures on Instagram, you compare yourself to them, and comparison is the thief of joy, therefore Instagram => comparison => depression?  …

“Outsourcing Adulthood” Doesn’t Cut It

  Every week, I swear, I read a new smear piece on why “Millennials,” aka human beings aged 23-38, are not doing it right. This article on The Cut stands out because its author is actually a Millennial, so you think they wouldn’t be so quick to hop on the self-loathing Millennial train, but it’s not just that that makes…

I Don’t Believe In “Ghosting”

  I’ve started and re-started this post so many times and every time, I work myself into a frothy rage so I’m gonna keep this short and sweet (that’s right, UNDER 700 WORDS) and just say this: I don’t believe in “ghosting.”   Why not?   1. Ghosting is a “new thing.” I am all for…

Can’t-Miss Podcast: Bear Brook

  photo via the Bear Brook website   Bear Brook, a podcast from New Hampshire Public Radio, is my latest obsession!   I don’t even know how I heard of it, but damn, I’m glad I did! Consider this your *nudge* to check it out. I listened to almost every episode while working late this week, and quickly devoured…

My Favorite True Crime Podcasts

Aaaahhhhhhhh, October! When a young gal’s mind turns to TRUE CRIME PODCASTS! If I had a dime for every time I met another person who is as obsessed with true crime podcasts as I am, I’d be like, “What the heck am I going to do with all of these dimes?” Because I really love true crime podcasts,…

Highlights From My 33rd Twirl Around The Sun

July 31st is my birthday! I have been a bit quiet about it on here… frankly, I’ve been quiet about a lot on here, this past year. This year was intense — by which I mean, it had some of the highest highs and the lowest lows — but overall, I’m surprised to admit that the highs…

LOST: my inspiration. FOUND: this stuff…

  So I just told you in my boat post that I’ve been struggling with finding “inspiration.” That’s pretty harsh, but it’s true. I’ve been actively searching for, but (largely) failing to find, things that excite me. Apologies in advance for sounding like a total jerk, but I’ve been going through a big period of “blah.” I’m not, like,…

Fixing A Hole

  I wrote over 400 words in this draft. Then I erased it all. Call this “Take Two.”   I’m very proud of myself for writing more in this blog. There was a time, not too long ago (OCTOBER 2017) when I couldn’t even fathom stringing two words together. I was like, in a hole. A hole…

And THAT’s Why I Have Trust Issues

  Yeah, you could say I’m a little FRAGILE lately!!!!   ICYMI, my life has been going through a lot of changes???? Okay, I’ll level with you: I HATE being out of the loop on important things. Things that matter to me. By people that matter to me. People I should be able to trust!   And that’s why I’m feuding with…

Currently… in November 2017

  Well, hello. I guess it’s been awfully quiet around here, huh? Guess I might as well let the cat out of the bag: on October 1st, my boyfriend of 3 1/4 years dumped me. I hate that I’m “that girl” who gets her heart broken and completely shuts down, but, there you have it….
