Book Review: Toroa

Toroa is Erik Hofstatter's debut novel and it soars!  On the surface, this book focuses on a girl named Mahi.  Mahi does not know her dad, her mother is the opposite of ideal, and she just met a fire-breather at a local festival who turns her world upside down in a sense.  All we know … Continue reading Book Review: Toroa

A Night Worms Book Review: Halcyon

“They used to burn girls like you at the stake.” Halcyon is the first book I have read by Rio Youers and it definitely did not let me down. I chose to not research this book before going into it because I have just started really enjoying going into books blind! I am sure this … Continue reading A Night Worms Book Review: Halcyon

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

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

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

Ariel: The Little Drama Queen

Can we just face the fact that it is impossible to be mature, classy, and poignant all the time?  As much as we need to show the world that we are upstanding and responsible masters of the universe, there  are times that we just need to lose our minds and go a little batshit dramatic, … Continue reading Ariel: The Little Drama Queen

Pluviophile: (n.) lover of rain

For years and years I have tried to fit into a society that shuns the "type of person" I am.  I fear for my safety at times, praying that no one will learn the truth about me.  Will my friends and family still love me?  Will my cat ever look at me the same when … Continue reading Pluviophile: (n.) lover of rain

The Ups and Downs of Escalators and Elevators

Another year is underway.  Another month is passing that reminds us each and every day that the job we have is not the job we want.  When did we roll over and submit to being trampled by the big corporations who inundate us with a false sense of loyalty?  Is there time to make a plan … Continue reading The Ups and Downs of Escalators and Elevators
