Call me old fashioned, but I find something deliciously wonderful about a handwritten note.   No, really. Do it. You can call me old fashioned. When it comes to this subject, you certainly wouldn’t be alone. For that reason, and a few others listed below, I have a life mission: to keep handwritten notes alive and […]

*Disclaimer: Before I begin this rant, I’d like to emphasize that this post is not about chivalry and its death, despite the fact that all of my “victims” are female. It is about rudeness in general and is not gender specific. End scene. Though one of my goals after reading The Happiness Project was to not […]


The other day, I decided to write a post about the cringe worthy phrase, “that’s not my job” – which can also be read as “I don’t feel like it.”  Then, wouldn’t you know it, I said a derivation of that phrase at work this very morning. Not once, but twice! Color me ashamed. After I […]


I just had a birthday. On the Fourth of July, as a matter of fact. Before you say the following, I’ll go ahead and take the liberty to do so: yes, I get fireworks every year; no, they’re not just for me; yes, it’s such a fun birthday; and, yes, I know I’m a firecracker. […]


A little over two years ago, I moved from my comfortable parents’ house in suburbia to the city of Chicago.  Having grown up just 23 miles outside of the city, the transition was simple.

Since my last review, I’ve come to accept that being old enough to choose to write a book review on my own isn’t a terrible, horrible thing.  It’s actually kind of fun since I can write in any font and size I deem worthy.  But not Comic Sans. Never Comic Sans. (As an aside, when […]


There are a few things in life I will never understand. Why buttered toast always lands butter side down, the Kardashians, Donald Trump’s hair and why Dave Matthews band is so popular. That last one is truly a head scratcher for me. Despite the fact that all of his songs sound the same, each with […]


Fun fact of the day about me: I struggle with taking compliments.  Sometimes I stutter. Other times I say “thanks” ridiculously fast and change the subject. And then there are the times that I feel the need to reciprocate the compliment immediately and it comes out all wrong.  Like the time my highschool boyfriend told […]


I’m going to this? Somebody pinch me, please. If you don’t mind, I’m going to bother you with a small portion of my life story. This is about my inability to win contests. Big, small, short, tall – I don’t win them. I’m pretty sure that if I was the only person to enter a […]


Seeing that it’s a brand new year, and I’ve had the same layout since 2009 (call me a creature of habit), I decided that it was time to be a bit more colorful.  Please enjoy this random hodgepodge of my dad’s records, 2 shoes and a bracelet of mine. Yes, we still have a copy […]
