I told Twitter that I binge ate 15 cookies today, and they totally didn't judge me. Which is crazy because I judged me, so why not them? I've found myself sneaking around as of late, hoarding cookies and other sugar-based goods like it's communist Russia and I'm on food rations. I've never experienced cravings for… Continue reading Dear Diet: I’m Over You.
Today someone asked me if I had a picture of myself. Given that I spend most of my time behind a camera, I was all, "oh probs, and if not - I'm sure I can whip something up real quick like". Turns out, it's not at all 'quick like', and surprisingly challenging. Not just operating… Continue reading The Selfie: A Horrifying Adventure
I was raised liberal. In a sea of extended family members that touted conservatism and gun ownership, my mother and I remained the black sheep of our family - an anomaly. For most of my life I had some pretty standard liberal views, obviously climate change is a thing, pro-choice, pro-affirmative action, anti-dogmatic religion, pro-renewable… Continue reading Just Because You’re a Liberal Doesn’t Mean You’re Tolerant
I have several hobbies. While I like to wax poetic and tell myself that I have so many hobbies because they're all various mediums for telling stories. However, some percentage of my psyche knows that if I have more hobbies, the percentage of one vaulting me into unmitigated success goes up. So, next time you… Continue reading Hold on to Your Tits Oprah, I’m Comin’ For Ya!
By all accounts, I'm a pretty awkward person. That is until we break that metaphorical barrier when we go out together and I have one to many Alabama Slammers and lose all sense of personal space and volume control. But, under normal circumstances, I'm pretty strange. I like to fill the silence with awkward conversation… Continue reading On Being a Patient
A little while back we were having a fire "issue" here in Southern Alberta. (Map here if you failed geography class.) For the most part, my hubby and I didn't really have cause to worry as we weren't close to any of them and our friends and family weren't either. Except for one weekend, when… Continue reading I’m Not a Good Apocalypse Partner
It's pretty easy to float along. I've been doing it for most of my life. Speaking for myself, I got to a point where I started thinking about what my mark on this world would be. After years of convincing myself that a 'mark' isn't a worthy 'mark' unless you stop global warming, "dispose" of… Continue reading Leave Your Mark
Being a better person? That's not your thing! Is probably what you're saying to yourself. But it's time. I mean, I'm just talking about my body here. I haven't even delved into emotional baggage or spiritual disconnectedness, but I DON'T WANT TO BORE YOU. I'm just getting to the age where I'm starting to be fully… Continue reading Adventures in Being a Better Person
My entire life, I haven't known how to like things moderately. I always intensely love things - often for a short period of time - or intensely hate things. My whole life is one giant lack of a middle ground. It's really quite exhausting. When it comes to very intense, TV dramas, I really truly… Continue reading TV Shows: The Dark List
When you're cranky you don't really want to write about anything 'cause you're waist deep in your doom and gloom attitude and everything that comes out of your fingertips seems to be inane drivel about nothing important. Or heavy, big topics that seem too overwhelming to broach. How am I supposed to tackle why Trump… Continue reading I’m Cranky
