2009 was no party. 2009 was a rough year. I’m not sure If I can even remember all the happened at this point but for me and the hubs, we hit all of the bumps in the road. Actually, they were more like mountains. It was a hard year and one I would rather not go through again. I handled it like a champ. I would get up every day, survive on a liquid diet of coffee, water, and vodka and then run away from everything for as long as I could. The hubs, on the other hand, he wrote […]
Winter is coming. Upon returning from my summer hiatus, I excitedly accepted a position in the beginning of September as a Client Strategist at WebDevStudios. That is correct, I am back to work folks. Taking the summer off to think about my future path was the best thing I could have done for myself. Exploring the country and doing some soul searching helped me accept the position with a clear mind and happy heart. Anytime you start a new position there is an adjustment period, especially at 40. Being the new person is awkward. It is the equivalent of being […]
I am completely pro-choice and very pro-Planned Parenthood. I believe that Americans should be allowed to bear arms but be licensed and educated on firearms. I think too many people are being killed unnecessarily. I think college should be free and/or affordable. I don’t believe we need a wall but a better screening process could be beneficial.

I also believe that finding alternative energy sources could help fix the economy and provide jobs. Marijuana should be legal, […]
A love letter to my College Friends. My introduction to college life did not go smoothly. I had a scholarship and a real taste of freedom. Unfortunately, they don’t always go together. Writing this blog was the hardest one for me. I loved so much about college yet have so few true memories from those days. However, I do know the people I met shaped me, inspired me, educated me, and I will love them forever.
Wheels Down. I landed back in Philly on Monday, July 4, 2016. The significance of it being Independence Day is not lost on me. June was finally over and I was feeling refreshed. It was time to claim my Independence from the things that have been weighing me down. It was time to accept my new reality. I was transitioning careers and experiencing a new decade in a new life. When I first landed in Philly, I felt like there was a cloud above me, perhaps it would be better to say a weight. I wasn’t ready to slip back […]
PDX TO LAX. My flight from Portland to LAX in route to Laguna Beach was so short that I barely remember it. I was so tired that I have zero recollection of take off. I think I slept the whole way … maybe. I’m not sure. I do remember landing and then walking into the airport thinking it was a shit show. LAX is just so big and I had no idea where to tell Tanya to pick me up at arrivals. Tanya and I met through our mutual friend Amy. It was probably 9th or 10th grade when we first really […]
