When I Have Long Fingernails

I was forced to make an informal resolution this year: stop biting my nails.  I have been a nailbiter my entire life, so I knew it was going to be difficult.  But I have been bite free for a little over two months now.  My fingers still feel weird as my nails get longer and I constantly … Continue reading When I Have Long Fingernails

A Celebration of Growing Up

International Day of Older Persons is real.  Just about 10 years ago in 1990 (because we all think that was just a decade ago, admit it), the UN General Assembly voted to institute this holiday to be observed on October 1st.  The holiday is celebrated by raising awareness about issues affecting the elderly, such as senescence and … Continue reading A Celebration of Growing Up

Things I Don’t Miss From Retail

Change.  We've heard about it our entire lives.  We know it's inevitable.  We know we're not supposed to always fear it or be opposed to it.  But let's face it; 99% of the time we don't WANT the change.  We are happy with the way things are -- That is unless you work in retail … Continue reading Things I Don’t Miss From Retail

Friends Since 1994

Back in 1994, one of the greatest television shows ever aired for the very first time.  Suddenly everyone you knew started clapping a whole lot, especially when they heard The Rembrandts "I'll Be There For You."  We laughed like we never knew we could.  And we finally had the best Friends that anyone could ever ask … Continue reading Friends Since 1994

5 Reasons Public Restrooms Gross Me Out

Men and women are different.  And I am not referring to gender equality, #WomenOn20s, or even the fact men still make more money than women for the same job.  There is no real political or socioeconomic agenda here.  It just comes down to basic biological differences.  Other than the epiphany we all learned from cute, … Continue reading 5 Reasons Public Restrooms Gross Me Out

I Got 99 Problems (And My Hair Without Gel Is One)

My hair has plagued me most of my life.  Growing up with two cowlicks, one in the front and one in the back, I opted for the easy way out.  Most of my childhood I had either a flat top (hey, I loved that red spiky comb and pink wax!) or just a simple buzz … Continue reading I Got 99 Problems (And My Hair Without Gel Is One)

The Dating Game: Horror Edition

"Someday my prince will come."   "There are more fish in the sea."   "If you love someone, let them go.  If they come back they were meant to be." We have all heard those phrases before whether we are happily in love now or have been at some point in our lives.  Most of … Continue reading The Dating Game: Horror Edition

The Basic Traveler: Bring Your Own Air Freshener

It's time for another migration from my old account, The Basic Traveler.  The morning commute started out pretty good, compared to most days.  I accidentally stayed in a bed a couple snoozes of the alarm longer than I had anticipated, but seeing how it was the Monday after a holiday weekend I think I did … Continue reading The Basic Traveler: Bring Your Own Air Freshener
