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. That said, moving downtown hasn’t taught me anything crazy about myself, by any means.  If anything, I’ve learned a lot about […]


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 […]


The signs are everywhere. You know that looming project you attack head on for a few weeks, and suddenly you just…fall off the face of the Earth? Progress stops, and the guilt begins almost immediately.  That’s exactly what has happened here. My last song of the day was in August. I’ve been motivated. I’ve had […]


Better late than never, right?  This past weekend marked a moment in history. I, a song hoarder/concert lover/music blogger, finally experienced my first Lollapalooza.  I know, I’m on the fast track to fame.  First, this post.  Next, a music publicist position followed by a million dollar book deal. Slight exaggeration.  All joking aside, being able […]
