Turning 25

I’m about a week in and 25 hasn’t completely sucked. I have turned 25. I am 25. I accepted my birthday this year. I had a really hard time acknowledging 23. I didn’t come out of my house that week and ignored all my birthday texts. HA, THAT just shows you how much more mature I […]

5 Tips to Deal with Difficult People

After a decade in the service industry as a waitress and over 3 years in an office setting interacting with co-workers internally and with clients externally, I’ve dealt with a lot of people.

How NOT to Approach a Girl

OK, the weirdest thing happened to me today and it made me wonder why it’s so wrong to approach a girl you don’t know and just say something as simple as, “I think you’re gorgeous, I’d love to get to know you. Can I have your phone number?” I was approached and it was exactly how […]

Don’t Say No to Firsts

I’m a creature of habit, I have to admit. I always have a plan, a routine, and when things get in the way I get nervous. I like being in control and when I’m not, I’m not myself and it’s evidently noticeable. I’ve been called a wet towel and that’s seared in the back of […]

You REALLY Want to Know Why I’m Sad?

A co-worker asked me why I’ve been looking bummed lately. This kid has no connection to me and I wouldn’t expect him to care but for him to say something means I haven’t been myself lately. So, it made me stop working, stop running around, and stop planning for a second to try and figure out […]
