Thirty five.

I am 35 years old today. It’s kind of been a tradition for me to post about my birthday, at least when I’ve written in my blog more often.  I also thought I’d be used to my birthday being on Christmas by now, but I still get more excited about Christmas first and remember later in […]

Hello… again.

Yeah. My poor blog. I seem to never want to sit down and write a post. I haven’t really been posting anywhere these days, even on Twitter or Instagram. I just haven’t been inspired to write recently, and I miss it. It’s hard seeing what the blog and the blogging community has become. I miss […]

Oh, hello.

Yeah, so I kind of dropped off the face of the earth for a bit. I blame, oh, you know, moving across the country! I’m finally at the point where we’ve settled into our new home, and I’ve been motivated to blog again. I’ve taken little breaks here and there throughout my 14+ years of […]

The best laid plans…

When I restarted my blog two weeks ago, visions of posts danced in my head. I’ll talk about knitting! Maybe I’ll talk about my 10k training when it starts! Oh! How about food posts? (As much as the internet complains about people who post food pictures, I love them. I spend more time than I […]

Just good enough

When I was in high school, I played the flute. I started in fourth grade and played up through my senior year. I loved it. I struggled at first, but after that first year, I mastered the basics. I learned my scales and arpeggios. I played pieces to build up my technical prowess. I auditioned […]

Winter blues

So, I missed a couple days. This doesn’t surprise me, as I didn’t have much going on besides going to work and going home. The weather’s finally getting colder here, down to the mid-30s which is typical for the month of December. I’m just glad there’s no snow yet. No snow, please! Winter seems to […]

31 days of writing.

What’s the best way to get better? Just doing it. Just writing, every day. It doesn’t matter the quality, not at first at least. Just getting words out there in some way helps and improves writing. Hopefully I will stick with writing every day this month so I can become a better writer!

Thoughts during a storm

I take myself and this blog way too seriously. What happened to the days I felt comfortable opening up a text editor or admin panel and just wrote what I wanted? It’s been awhile. My next goal for this blog is to just write what comes to me instead of leaving this space dormant because […]

This is what 30 looks like.

Take a look at the picture below. It’s of me, of course. Can you guess when it was taken? If you followed me on Twitter roughly six months ago, you’d know. Look. I’ve struggled all my life with the fact I look years younger than my age. It bothered me immensely in my early 20s. […]

End of the year.

So, today’s the last day of 2010. This year did not go as expected, not at all! I experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, and in general, I will be working on making 2011 a much more satisfying year! Obviously, my dad’s accident was the biggest thing to happen this year. […]
