martina is losing it #14

I’m going to be real with you guys. Part of my absence was because time just got away from me and all of a sudden it’s like 3 weeks and I haven’t put up an update. The other part was that October was not the greatest month on this journey for me. In total, I’ve lost 5.2 pounds for the…

single gal speaks: don’t PMS & Bumble

I’ve been trying to write this for about two weeks now but I don’t know what to really say. Unlike my last post, where I didn’t know how to start it because I was so excited I just wanted to word vomit all over the screen, this one is a lot more personal. Ok, I’m being dramatic. It’s about online…

single gal speaks: OKStupid

I am so glad I have a blog so that moments like the one I’m about to tell you won’t get lost in the cesspool of Facebook and so that I can rant and rave to my heart’s content and then (hopefully) incorporate the public at large into my conversation. I watch a lot of YouTube and read a lot…

single gal speaks: BUMBLE

Bumble has finally made it to the Google Play store. Bumble, if you aren’t aware, is yet another one of those right swipe/left swipe dating apps. Except, after you make a match, the GIRL has 24 hours to start a conversation with the guy or else he disappears forever. Kinda love the idea, kinda hate it. Anyway, I downloaded it…
