My counselor suggested at one of our first meetings that I keep a journal. My first thought was, “You, lady, are insane. Hell no. That’s asking for trouble” because frankly my private thoughts are enough to give the devil himself pause at times. I don’t really have a good explanation for it, but generally my … Continue reading Can SOMEONE Else Do The Bending? For Once.
Breakups are never easy. Not for either party. Regardless of who “caused” it. Regardless of who “initiated” it. Regardless of whose “fault” it is. Nobody spends years with a partner and leaves without some great memories. No matter how bad things were toward the end, there was a bond at some point. There was something … Continue reading It’s Not Kevlar, But Kryptonite
I have always believed that certain events in your life will change the person that you are, regardless of what stage of life you're in when they occur. Having sex for the first time, falling in love the first time, having your heart broken, breaking someone's heart, getting married, getting divorced, finding your soul mate … Continue reading The Coolest Shit That’s Ever Happened To Me
I’ve been listening to an audio book by Brene Brown. It seems, as of Chapter 13, to be a series of talks/teachings that she has given on the subject of vulnerability. So far, most of it has resonated with me far more than I care for it to, especially the points on empathy and shame. … Continue reading People Are Going To Think You’re a Homosexual: A Reflection on my Childhood
Normally, when I see teenagers, I cringe. They make my insides burn my stomach ache. I’m almost fearful of them. They’re always moody, and generally psycho. They can’t help it. Hormones are a bitch. I remember. I was an exceptionally cray teenager. This morning, they surprised me. Then I surprised myself. After our kid drug … Continue reading There May Be Some Hope After All
"How would your life be different if you were incapable of feeling fear? Would your life be better or worse than it is now?" This was a prompt from a Twitter account that I follow. After giving it a little thought, my answer would have to be that I was never just flat-out scared of … Continue reading I Wouldn’t Go So Far As To Say I Was Ever Scared…..
Let's just say that last week I lucked into some tickets and VIP passes to see The Avett Brothers at the Word of South festival here in Tallahassee. To say I was excited would be the understatement of the century. I adore them. And I freely admit that it is only due to a CMT … Continue reading Lost Wallets, Cheese Fries, Banjos, and Sobriety: My Evening out with The Avett Brothers
There are very few things that I am truly passionate about. I have many interests, which are broad-reaching and eclectic, but very few that I truly don’t think I could live without. College Football and music are obvious ones to anyone who knows me or follows my twitter accounts. I get hot headed about environmental … Continue reading Mine and Dale Jr.’s First Fifteen Years
Ted Cruz announced his presidential candidacy yesterday and it brought out tons of opinions on social media. A lot of it centered around whether Cruz’ religious beliefs, and prior statements regarding homosexuality were hurting his chance at residing in the White House. Before I begin, let me own up to some shit first. I make … Continue reading Your Perception is Your Reality. Really.
The term “Trans-Gender” has been thrown around a lot recently. Admittedly, I never really looked into it, nor cared to for that matter. I like my twat and have no desire to have a penis swinging between my legs. My preference for women and my “type” is also pretty well set in stone also. Until … Continue reading I FINALLY GOT IT. NOW, MORE PARENTS NEED TO GET IT
