Please Stop Telling 30-Somethings What To Do (An Open Letter to Kallie Provencher at RantChic)

Today I read an article posted by a friend on Facebook. The article (and I use the term loosely, it was really more of a slideshow with a couple of fragmented mandates beneath each photo) was actually from late last year. I knew I had seen it before. It was titled 24 Things Women Should Stop… Continue reading Please Stop Telling 30-Somethings What To Do (An Open Letter to Kallie Provencher at RantChic)

Being Supportive Does Not Always Make You A Good Person

I've had to do far too much supporting of others lately, and it has taken a toll on me.

An Open Letter To Martha Stewart, From A Blogger (Not An Expert)

Last Sunday, I - like many - spent the majority of my day relaxing and perusing around the Internet. For the most part, I was just minding my own business. I giggled at memes of Grumpy Cat. I issued the obligatory Facebook 'happy birthday's and 'congratulations on your umpteenth pregnancy's. I pinned a bagillion-and-one Halloween… Continue reading An Open Letter To Martha Stewart, From A Blogger (Not An Expert)

Everyone Shut Up and Listen To Me – NOW (STFU Fridays)

I'm super cranky, faithful blog followers. So cranky I think the best way to describe my attitude would be as snarly, and my facial expression as sheer hatred. Of everything. Between getting back to life after a crazy and long vacation to the Midwest; finding a new place to rent temporarily; and preserving any last… Continue reading Everyone Shut Up and Listen To Me – NOW (STFU Fridays)
