Alright March, You Better Work Bitch

Fun fact that I just learned: March 5th – 11th is Spring Cleaning Week in the UK. But I live in America and I’m the worst so my spring cleaning week is going to last from March 1st – 31st. I decided last night while I wasn’t getting any sleep that I wanted to use

Oh February, Short and Sweet

I’m sitting down the write this at 7:00am on Wednesday. You’d think that I was just waking up and getting my day started but in reality, I haven’t gone to bed yet and I’m not wide awake but I’m pretty damn conscious right now. I would also like to thank those that expressed concern at

I’m Getting It Started In Here but the Black Eyed Peas Aren’t Invited

I’m not gonna lie, coming up with titles for blog posts is not the easiest thing in the world and, yes, I roll my eyes at myself when I come up with particularly stupid ones… like this one. You’re welcome world. Anyway. I mentioned recently, I decided that I was waiting until February to truly

What Can I Improve This Year?

Well hello there 2018! Ya’ll know I’m not a big fan of the idea of resolutions. I find them to be a fantastic set-up for failure. Especially when people start throwing around the concept of “New Year, New Me!” I hate that. When I first started this blog way back in 2015 I talked about

Sending My Baby Out Into the World One Piece at a Time

Whelp, I did it. Monday I posted a sample chapter from my upcoming book “You’re Doing It Wrong” and the response has been pretty damn awesome. If you’re behind the times you check out “Bad Luck & Hard Love” here. This chapter in particular comes a bit later in the book and introduces the stories

Just Another Manic Monday

I was totally prepared to sleep in today. I have been writing up a storm lately and it’s been keeping me up late. Last night I called it an “early night” and was asleep by 3am. So there’s that. I was gonna catch up on some sleep this morning but then the cats reminded me

It’s Official, I’m A Living Meme

At any given point in time, I am a walking anxiety potato and this week seems to be no exception. After bouncing back from a really bad depressive episode a few weeks ago, I went back into life in full force with a newfound vigor and stupidity. I published a book, got back on track

What No One Tells You about Writing a Book

Those who know me well know that for the past seven years or so I have been working on writing a book comprised of personal essays detailing my life experiences so far. A memoir. Originally, when I first started working on this idea it was going to be a series of humorous stories from my

Life: Unplugged (For the Week)

I guess it’s a staycation? I don’t know how these things work. The long of the short of it is this: I’m stepping away from life for the next week. I have taken the week off from all jobs and responsibilities. No serving, no touring, no blogging: nothing. This is either going to be the

There’s Nothing Wrong With Surprise Books

I am notoriously fond of spoiling the crap out of the people in my life. I love planning surprises (usually without telling anyone) and springing them on my unsuspecting friends and family without a word. One of my favorites was back in January when Andy and I were out at Disneyland. I had booked us
