A Trip To The Dentist

I just recently had my quarterly teeth cleaning at the dentist.  Yes, quarterly.  It takes some work to have a flawless smile, you know.  Like many of you, I detest going to the dentist.  I even try to make it as painless and convenient as possible by selecting a dentist that is in the same … Continue reading A Trip To The Dentist

Life Coach: Mrs. Peacock

Clue is one of my all-time favorite movies. What's NOT to love about it?  There are so many quotable characters, witty one-liners, and animated performances.  I have always favored the female stars in this movie over the males: Mrs. Peacock, Mrs. White, and Miss Scarlet.  From the trio, let's take a look at what Mrs. … Continue reading Life Coach: Mrs. Peacock

10 Minutes A Day To Less Stress

Raise your hand if you are stressed out.  Did you raise your hand?  If not, slap yo'self!  If you are one of the lucky few who seem to never get stressed then I applaud you.  For the rest of us it seems like there is always something out there stressing us to the max.  "Am … Continue reading 10 Minutes A Day To Less Stress

I Wear Earbuds To Avoid You

It seems as if half of my day at work is consumed with avoiding people.  I just want to be able to go from Point A to Point B and not have to stop for meaningless chit chat.  We are all plagued with the empty "Hi! How are you?" when we pass someone we know … Continue reading I Wear Earbuds To Avoid You

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

Attack of the Jellyfish

I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.  The year: 1996.  I was only 10 years old and I was summering with my family at our old beach house.  That was the summer the United States hosted the Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia.  It was also the last summer I would … Continue reading Attack of the Jellyfish

Leap Day: Make It Count

Hooray for an extra day!  But why can't it be a Saturday instead of a Monday?  Ugh.  2016 has a leap year, so there is an extra day in February.  We get a leap year every 4 years based on the fact that a complete orbit of the earth around our sun takes exactly 365.2422 days to complete. … Continue reading Leap Day: Make It Count

The Tale of the Little Train That Couldn’t

I've been riding the train to work for about a year and a half now. It is never something I am excited to do (because people smell so bad I cry before boarding the train, people are gross, and people are stupid and beyond professional help), but it sure cuts down on the Atlanta commuting … Continue reading The Tale of the Little Train That Couldn’t

Life Coach: Michelle Tanner

Can I just begin with the fact that I am disappointed that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are not in Fuller House?  On the upside: YES!  FULLER HOUSE!  It is still going to be AMAZING!  I have waited my whole life for this moment and the day is finally here!  I plan to finish the entire … Continue reading Life Coach: Michelle Tanner

Ike Turner: The Ultimate Boogeyman

Fear of The Boogeyman is perfectly natural for a child.  One might attribute these rational fears to many sources: campfire ghost stories, horror movies, a teasing sibling, etc.  I had childhood friends who were afraid of Hobgoblin and Venom from the Spider-Man comics.  One of my cousins swore up and down that Michael Myers was … Continue reading Ike Turner: The Ultimate Boogeyman
