I Finally Did Something Right, It Only Took Ten Years

Ya’ll I’m gonna be honest in saying this is the most exciting blog post I think I’ll ever write. Unless I get invited onto the Ellen Degeneres show in which case I’m just going to upload a video of me screaming until I pass out. So we all have that to look forward to. So

Freefalling into the Abyss

Well I have some damn exciting news. Are you ready? I’m almost done with my book! I mean, this would all be more exciting if I said I was actually done with the book but I’m struggling with the last chapter that needs to be written and I’m surprised there’s any hair left on my

You’re Doing It Wrong: Hands

How about a sneak preview?! In real time, I’m on the final full day of my cruise. Hopefully I’m on the pool deck with a drink in my hand and not a care in the world. Reality, it’s 4:26am on the Tuesday prior and I’m sitting here deciding to set up a auto-publish post. It’s

A Less Than Subtle Art of Accepting Rejection

So I think it’s fait to say that I’ve already gotten bored with the format I was using for my Transformation Tuesday posts. That’s not to say I won’t be doing them anymore, of course I will, but the whole listing things format was getting boring really quick. Like I mentioned a couple posts ago,

The Great Big Decagon of Life

I’m gonna go ahead and admit that this has not been my favorite week- matter of fact, it’s been downright stressful as hell. I can’t really pinpoint why, but I know that I’ve been emotionally drained to the point where I have spent far too much time sleeping. A fine example would be that it’s

You’re Doing It Wrong: Bad Luck & Hard Love

Last night I gave my Instagram followers a chance to vote on which chapter from my upcoming book I should post. It was between what you see here and “Everybody Poops.” After 9 hours of voting it was a VERY tight race but this chapter, “Back Luck & Hard Love” won with 51% of the

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

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

Today I Hid In a Bookstore

I will start this by admitting that I am VERY tired right now and the struggle to keep me eyes open is very real. This past weekend I ran the Gasparilla Distance Classic (posts about the races coming soon) and I have yet to have time to catch up on that pesky sleeping thing. True
