Big, Squinty, Smiles…

I often hear moms say, “I lost all my beauty after I had children.” In fact, I just read a recent article in Cookie Magazine, where the beauty editor lamented about all the ‘free swag’ she received, (aka: botox, samples,) but she never felt beautiful after she had children. She saw herself as less, while…

Slaying the fear of Social Media Monster…

      We often take things for granted now that used to be precious glimpses into the future. We didn’t know then to the extent that this form of electronic media and interaction would have in our lives. In gaining one thing, do we lose something else?  To gain web interaction, a lot of the older…

The ghost of guilt….

Someone I had a date with.. (ages?) ago recently notified me he’d like to hang out again. I had left him a message, a while back after finding a coveted sitter and being blown off for the evening that I’d appreciate if he never contacted me again, but took care. (I’m almost sure I didn’t…

Pink Ribbons = Company Profit.

You’ll have a hard time convincing me that you actually care, Corporate America, until you learn to stop watering down breast cancer to an ill-conceived campaign to sell off the atrocious colors of light pinks that plague store shelves.

There are acronyms for people like me…

He rolls over and does the guy thing where he’s snuggling up against my back which I think creates some sort of animalistic thing in guys- and he whispers, “What are you thinking about?” I was honest, so I said, “I was thinking about how people have evolved in social media to become wittier and…

Reflections of the lost geek….

Today’s thought: Life will never stop moving forward. For this, I feel lucky. It is written in the universe that as soon as your boyfriend dumps you, he becomes the patron saint of android phones and his name/face/voice/smile is plastered all over your personal interwebs. I received an email recently asking me if this bothered…

Free to Decide…

If everything that’s happened, had to be so that in this moment I could feel as I do now? I’d certainly fark  it all up again, threefold just to feel the empowerment and absolute excitement that I do as of late. Tomorrow, I present. It’s a culmination of a week long class with people that…

Holy Water In My Lungs…

I am overcome… For not only those lost in NYC, but around the world: This day is one we remember for heroics, martyrdom & an ideal that will not fade. It’s not about one country’s advancement over another. It’s about humanism and recognizing the darkest parts of ourselves that creep out when ignorance flourishes. For…

Obama vs. the entire universe… (go!)

I went to the ER recently for a 104 temperature and the inability to stop shaking. The bubonic plague has it in for me. When I received five, separate, bills from Allina hospitals I had to breathe using the labor pain method and I read that my IV Fluid was near $250.00 a bag. ($120…

Muchos Gracias, fate.

The last three months has been led to possibly the largest period of self-discovery since the, ‘I’m entirely too obsessed with hostess cupcakes that are in the freezer,” era. I’m taking on a Youth Director position as a weekend gig for a church in Savage and today? I filled out my application for Bethel College….
