Life Goals Achieved This Week

I actually don't have that many life goals. I used to, but I either 1) achieved them already, or 2) gave up on them. The big one I gave up on was graduate school and becoming a college professor. At one time, it was my only goal; now it's something I have absolutely zero interest… Continue reading Life Goals Achieved This Week

I Might As Well Move To Stepford At This Point

Did any of you see the Stepford Wives movie? Either the first, or the second - if you didn't, you really need to.

Kidding. (Not kidding.) Okay you guys, my book was set to come out on Tuesday, June 4th. Tomorrow for me. Today at this point for some of you. Then I got an email today saying it would be delayed because of some bullshit on Amazon. I was so devastated. I threw myself around for about… Continue reading Buy My Book Now, Or Else My Next One Will Be About You


My Hypochondriosis

I am sick right now, which means I've been pacing around for the seven days that I've been sick worrying that something very serious is wrong with me. Of course everyone in my family has been sick, and I clearly just have a cold; but in the past few days I've self-diagnosed myself with tuberculosis,… Continue reading My Hypochondriosis
