Career Puberty. Gross.

Being a woman in my thirties is weird enough. I’m not married and I don’t have kids. So, you know, I’m “different.” I live downtown instead of the suburbs and I like to stay busy at concerts, tailgates, happy hours, networking events, and dinners out. Inside, I still feel like I’m 22. But I know I’ve accomplished and learned a lot in life and… Read more →

Text Break-up

Did That Just Happen?

Oh wait, no way. You’re kidding. He didn’t just say what I think he did, did he? But, he did. He said exactly what I thought he did. Unfortunately, it’s more about HOW he said it than WHAT he said. Guys, I got broken up with via text. I am addicted to my phone. Accused and charged, 100% addicted. I… Read more →

Work No Longer Defines Me.

I wrote about learning to disconnect and then I revealed the beginning feelings of starting a life of freelance work rather than full-time, in-the-office, work-for-someone else work. And they share some common themes. It’s a new way of life and, although it’s not always easy, it’s rewarding in ways I didn’t expect.   I’ve caught myself talking about this subject a… Read more →

All communication must continue to flow as easily as possible. Restroom breaks aren’t even allowed.   2. Send the same semi-racy photos that they are sending to a dude. Because you need someone that… Read more →

Christmas for Her

Gift-giving is hard, right? Gift-giving is even harder when you’re trying to make it personal. But if you’re like me, it’s so satisfying to watch someone open a present followed by a spark of “wow, this person really thought about what would make me happy.” Yeah, a list isn’t necessarily going to solve that problem, but hopefully it’ll give you… Read more →

Maybe This Life Is Enough?

This is going to be a hard one to write. It’s a post I’ve been thinking about for a long time, but writing it means it’s more reality than I want to admit.   We all have moments of, “Oh shit, is this my life? How did I get here?” It’s natural. It’s normal. In that moment, we start to… Read more →

That’s Love

“Wow. You really, deeply loved him, didn’t you?”   Those were words just spoken by a former co-worker. I was actually taken aback by how surprising and deep that statement was. I immediately thought, “why is that shocking?”. But, after a conversation, I realized that the way I loved my ex wasn’t really all that common these days. And it made… Read more →
