i’m more of a giver

Well, friends, we’ve reached that time after Christmas where every blogger, YouTuber, and humblebragger on social media is starting to share what they got for Christmas. Because I am more of a giver (and because I’m pre-writing this and Christmas hasn’t actually happened yet), I’m going to share a gift that I gave this year instead. Earlier in the month,…

screenshots, no chaser #5

I was cleaning out my screenshots folder on my phone and I realized that I had a ton of things (memes) that I meant to share on here. So, before they get too old and irrelevant, if they haven’t already, here are some that have made me blow air through my noise extra hard lately.

four.

I try to make it a habit of checking my on this day on Facebook every day. Most times it makes me cringe and facepalm all over the place because 2009-2013 (give or take) Martina was a real gem. Sometimes though, something will pop up that will make me smile or genuinely laugh. Today I was scrolling through and I…

weekend update: christmas shopping, light displays and historic houses

So, it’s Sunday night and I’m actually writing a weekend update post. Friday I took the day off of work so that I could uphold the tradition (and necessary evil) of going Christmas shopping with my mom, aunt, and cousins. When I say necessary evil, it’s the crowds and the pressure of getting it all done that I hate, not…

a big halloweenie

Happy Halloween my spook-tacular friends! I haven’t been around in a while, for which I apologize. The days just get away from me and then all of a sudden, Facebook is on my case saying that my followers miss me. Write a post. Don’t tell me what to do, Zuckerberg. Anyway, I digress. I love a good theme post and…

If you checked social media today, you probably saw people talking about the #metoo movement. Started by Alyssa Milano in response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal, it gives women an opportunity to share their stories about sexual harassment/assault. I’m sure you’ve heard of it. I didn’t want to post a “me too” status on Facebook because I don’t consider myself…

fall feelings

In case you missed the memo, it’s finally October. Except it’s 80 degrees and humid here in Brooklyn so that Fall feeling isn’t really happening. However, I came across this festive Fall survey over on Nadine’s blog (who found it here)and even though I’m tardy to the link up party, I’m going to do it anyway because I can’t resist.…

rant and ramble: a possible case of stockholm syndrome

I’ve been at my new job for a month now and I never thought I’d say this there are things I miss about my old one(s). I know, so crazy. Especially after all of the blog posts I’ve written, both in my head and on here, all the tears I’ve shed over shitty situations, letters of complaint I’ve threatened to…
