I'm doing what I think I ought with resources that are fewer than naught.

I won’t tell if you don’t.

I am not a relationship person.


That’s putting it lightly. If it isn’t a downright lie altogether.

What I mean to say is, I’ve never been in a romantic relationship. Period.

I became an aunt one year ago today. We welcomed Miss Laney into our lives last July, and, though I may be biased, the world got a little better.

Let me be honest, I love babies. Sure, they terrify me, but they’re still the best; and I truly believe that holding a little human can turn a bad day into a not so bad day.

For me, being an over-analyzer, children and babies always make me think about myself as a child, and how I went from being a curious explorer of the world to just a plain old contributor to society.

That being said, I’ve always loved riding bikes. Even before I saw it as a (literal) vehicle for exercise, as a kid I would ride up and down hills, through yards, in ditches, over bridges, beside busy roads, and in the middle of the street I grew up on. Read the rest of this entry »

Energetic Catharsis.


Live music is great, and I’ve always enjoyed hearing artists perform live. Even from when I was a little girl, I can remember running around community festivals and wedding receptions like a crazy kid, high on life.

After a couple lengthy (dare I say, longwinded?) blogposts, I’ll cut to the chase: I sorted it all out in a month.

Surprised? So was I.

While quitting one job, packing up the entirety of my house, finding a suitable/affordable apartment, celebrating two holidays, and saying goodbye to some fabulous people was not the easiest of things to do in less than 4 weeks, all those things pale in comparison to the uncertainty and stress I experienced upon actually making the move across the state.
