On Motherhood (meet my new puppy)

So this past weekend, following 20 seconds of insane courage, I adopted a dog. It was one of the most nerve wracking and special decisions I have ever made in my life. Because to me, a dog symbolizes my adult life. It’s an expansion of my selfish lifestyle to include the responsibility another’s well-being. Now, I consider…

Advice, like Youth, Probably Just Wasted on the Young

This is a graduation speech I found on the internet. Legend has it Kurt Vonnegut gave this commencement speech but upon further research I found that Mary Schmich wrote this speech in a column in the Chicago Tribune in 1997. But regardless, it is a great piece of uplifting advice.   Wear sunscreen. If I could…

Life is What Happens When You are Busy Making Other Plans

In the past two weeks my life has been turned upside down. Not necessarily in  a bad way but a chaotic way.   – I broke up with my job.. Leaving me without a paycheck & without a 40-hour-a-week time constrained schedule. – I somehow got sucked into running our family construction company. So far I have…

Sunday (un)Fundays

Do you remember Sunday Fundays? Back in my younger days (By that I mean college. Two years ago) I loved a good Sunday Funday. As if drinking on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays weren’t enough, we had to day drink on Sundays as well. We never needed an excuse, bottomless mimosas at Cabo Cantina was…

So No One Told You Life Was Gonna Be This Way?

“Your job’s a joke, your broke, your love life’s DOA….” I don’t know about you but I was wholly unprepared for my 20’s. No ever told me it would be this hard. There were no warnings. I had no idea that I would receive my diploma then get swiftly kicked out into the real world. Go find…

Sitting, Waiting, Wishing. Finally Moving Out of My Parent’s House.

Like most college graduates I moved home after graduation. Job prospects were slim and my parents weren’t willing to fund my post-graduate lifestyle in San Diego with my friends (not that I wanted them to. I never planned to stay there). So I packed my life into my Toyota Yaris, said my tearful goodbyes to…
