This school year was supposed to be easier, but it’s not

Today, to me, there is nothing political about this. This isn’t even about science. I don’t want to argue. I’m not here to moderate debates. It’s true – Somewhere in the back of my mind, I hold opinions too. They’re currently being stored in a file, under the name: “What’s It Matter, Anyway?” I. Am.…… Continue reading This school year was supposed to be easier, but it’s not

I’m a socially awkward mom

I like to think I’m an easy-going, friendly, maybe even charismatic person. I picture myself the life of the party: hair always on point, outgoing…an assertive trendsetter. Oh, and witty AF.

A Day In The Life Of A Pandemic Mom

8:00 am – I very reluctantly roll out of bed. I don’t need to brush my hair or do makeup because I already know I won’t be leaving the house today.

100 Topics For Lack Of Creativity

I’ve been having a super hard time blogging lately. Simply put, I have been in a creative rut. I blame the pandemic and the inability to go anywhere ever.

People I Want To Dropkick, Part III: I’ve Got A Chip On My Shoulder

At this point in my adult life, I have gathered that I am not everyone’s cup of tea. Using sarcasm is like a sport to me and I probably swear a little more than could be considered lady-like. Today I was described by a former acquaintance as “always having a chip on my shoulder.” It’s…… Continue reading People I Want To Dropkick, Part III: I’ve Got A Chip On My Shoulder
