Don’t change, I like you just the way you are.

“Don’t change, I like you just the way you are.” Please don’t tell me I was the only child exposed to this dad-joke classic. You know the one I’m talking about; the one where you agree to run an errand or do some chore with your dad and you “just need to change real quick.”Continue reading “Don’t change, I like you just the way you are.”

She is beauty, she is grace, she just fell flat on her face

Anyone else feel lied to? I feel like the whole human existence is kind of a big, fat lie. I know.. dramatic. But hear me out: I remember as a child thinking that the kids in high school were so cool. They “just had their life together.” They were going to college and they wereContinue reading “She is beauty, she is grace, she just fell flat on her face”

I’m not going to be sad tomorrow.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Eve. More importantly, happy March 16th. March 16th is the day before March 17th and March 17th is a really, really special day. March 17th is Star’s birthday.. and Star is my horse. Or.. she was. As you may remember, she’s dead now. Dead as a door nail – 100 poundsContinue reading “I’m not going to be sad tomorrow.”

A lawyer: 3 years later

Facebook memories have a way of building you up, tearing you down, or just plain kicking your ass. Or sometimes, they just…really, really age you. Facebook reminded me the other day that it’s been 3 years, THREE YEARS, since I was sworn into the Missouri bar. While it was one of my life highlights, andContinue reading “A lawyer: 3 years later”

Sunshine and Rainbows

I wish I could say that life has been sunshine and rainbows since my last post (which was kind of a bummer- sorry about that btw), but alas, THAT WOULD BE A LIE. My dog has tried dying on me, twice, in the last week. No seriously, turns out her “kennel cough” symptoms were actuallyContinue reading “Sunshine and Rainbows”

heaviness

Everything is heavy right now. The world is just heavy. You can’t turn on the tv, or scroll through Facebook, without being reminded of that absolute terror and shambles half our world is stuck in. I mean honestly, it’s a constant stream of vaccination debates/booster debates, a seemingly never-ending list of virus variants, the contentiousContinue reading “heaviness”

It’s easier to have a BADitude.

There. I said it. It’s easier to have a bad attitude than a good one – a baditude if you will. (I did not coin this, I have no idea who did, but if it was you, consider this your personal shout out). Sometimes, I have a baditude. I’m happy, but my attitude can stillContinue reading “It’s easier to have a BADitude.”

HABIT(ches).

Habit is a bitch, I’m going to be honest. How much of a bummer is it that symptoms of anxiety, symptoms of OCD, symptoms of depression, boil down to a bunch of shitty, out of control and thoughtless… habits? (plus other stuff – but that’s not the point of this blog 😉). Maybe it’s justContinue reading “HABIT(ches).”

Shut your damn mouth 🤐

One of the hardest parts of adulthood, and honestly, even just growing up, has been controlling this mouth of mine. It runs faster than my brain and apparently enjoys my foot in it. It gets me in trouble, again and again and again. I remember one time, as a small-ish child, I was taunting myContinue reading “Shut your damn mouth 🤐”
