Moistly Nothing

Somewhere along the way, I became afraid. I was afraid to speak up, I was afraid of change, I was afraid to make a peep. I survived the best way I knew how; to be meek, be funny, keep the peace, and run far and fast when the shit hit the fan. I did a…

46

Another year older. Another year wiser? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Last year, I did a little staycation and treated myself. This year, I met up with one of my best friends and went to the magical city of… Cleveland. Yes, Cleveland. We went there to see the Angels play the Guardians. It was a great trip, and Cleveland…

Life Report, July 2022

It was here and soon it’ll be gone. July. Whooosh! I worry too much. What would happen if I worried less? What would happen if I started to let go of the concerns I have for things I can’t control? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (and why does this emoji always have a missing left arm?) What I’m trying…

Life Report April 1st, 2022

No, I don’t have an April Fools bit to getcha with. Sorry. I’m just writing here for myself. Things are okay, they’re good. It’s not like things have been particularly difficult or anything—I’ve had a mixture of ugh, meh, and cool and I’m okay with all of that these days. I’m in a good spot.…

Life

I’ve spent nearly a year intentionally working on myself, my mental health, going to therapy, reading, and learning so that I can unravel the things that are hamstringing me. I don’t have it figured out yet but I’ve learned a lot more about myself, why I operate the way that I do and I’ve gained…

The simplicity of one foot after the other striking the ground—finding the correct breathing pattern—accomplishing something despite my desire to do anything other than run is magical for me.…

Tweets I Bookmarked in 2021

Last year I started making use of the bookmarking feature provided by Twitter for tweets I found interesting. Mostly they’re business-related. I figured I’d share them here. Even so, I didn’t bookmark quite as much as I probably should but it’s okay. I’m intent on keeping it going and already have a couple of helpful…

2021

Or twenty-twenty-fun as I like to call it. Just kidding, I didn’t call it that. Year two of this pandemic and I’m not sure what I think about it. It can get bent as far as I’m concerned. How I Went This year was a mixed bag personally. I didn’t do much in the way…

45

No. Not that 45. I turned 45 today. 🎉🎂 There’s a lot on my mind as I contemplate my past and think about the future (and spending way too little time in the present). So, no, I don’t have forty-five lessons to share with you. However, I have a stream of consciousness of thoughts that…

Personal Finance Journey 2021

Photo Cred: Sarah Andersen Like many people, I wasn’t educated about finances when I was a child-ling. As a result, I made many haphazard decisions with my money early in my twenties, and they nearly put me on the street, if not for friends and family helping me when I needed it the most. Still,…
