I guess I make New Years resolutions now.

So I did some math this morning. Don’t worry; I didn’t sprain my brain too badly. I got out the ol’ abacus AKA my fingers and determined that since it is now 2015 and I graduated from high school at the age of 18 in 2000, I have now been an adult for 15 years. […]

Take Your Turkey and Stuff It: Four Thanksgiving Foods that Should Be Banned

So I fell off the NaBloPoMo horse for a few days. Big surprise there. Seriously, the fact that I’ve managed to log in more than three times this entire month is nothing short of miraculous and I owe it all to the copious amounts of coffee I’ve been drinking. If you smell something off, it’s […]

A Campfire Story

Probably one of the coolest things about observing a child grow up is seeing them learn. When they figure stuff out all by themselves, the look of pride on their faces is just delectable. I remember the time C took her first wobbly steps. Even though she didn’t actually know where she was going, she sensed […]

You Are What You Tweet

Ever since I went back to work full-time in June, I have been both fully present and fully absent in the blogosphere. The Waiting has lived up to its name: it sits patiently waiting to receive my critical observations regarding Buzzfeed and cloth diapers, to which I do not give it a scrap. This blog’s […]

Let’s all hold hands and lose our minds together.

So, every November, writers and bloggers the world over are peer pressured invited to take part in literary self-flagellation of epic proportions. Today kicks off National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and National Blog Post Month (NaBloPoMo). NaNoWriMo – commonly  referenced as National Sh*%$y First Draft Month – puts writers up to the challenge of

Humility At Work

On my recent flight from San Jose for BlogHer, I sat across the aisle from a guy I recognized from the convention as a WordPress programmer. I argued with myself over whether I should say hi, it being extremely early and me having the proclivity to insert my foot in my mouth whenever I randomly approach […]

Come Fly With Me. Here’s Your Barf Bag.

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of going to BlogHer14 in San Jose, California. It was a great experience not only because I got to collect my very first ever blogging award* but also because I learned how to do many new things such as take a selfie and work the word “niche” into 2/3rds […]
