Toxic Work Environment

First jobs usually happen in high school when you want some extra cash. First jobs are usually bullshit positions in which you take a lot of criticism from the man for doing work that you're only doing because you aren't qualified to do anything else yet. Lifegaurding, waitressing, flipping burgers. Ah, first jobs. When I… Continue reading Toxic Work Environment

As it Turns Out, I’m Bad at a Lot

I don't know what I did to receive two awards in a short period of time, but I've been nominated for the Flawesome Award! The first award allowed me to give blogging advice. This award insists that I air my dirty laundry. I was feeling like a genius until I was reminded that I have weaknesses.… Continue reading As it Turns Out, I’m Bad at a Lot

Blogging Advice From an Amateur

It happened again! I was nominated for an award! Instead of being voted an absolute ray of sunshine, I've been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award! I'm not sure why I was nominated or if it's a compliment, but I'm going to perceive it as such. This award is all about sharing my blogging knowledge,… Continue reading Blogging Advice From an Amateur

I’m Revamping Everything Except My Life

Writer's block. The sworn nemesis of writers everywhere. One day you could be cranking out some quality posts, and the next, nothing comes to mind except conflict. This is the situation in which I find myself, but I'm not convinced it's for the normal reasons. I can think of things to write, but I always… Continue reading I’m Revamping Everything Except My Life

This One Doesn’t Have a Title

The kids went back to school today and I did not. It feels weird not having to prepare a first day of school outfit or color code my notebooks or give myself several pep talks so I can make it through reading five syllabuses. I didn't have to catch a bus to campus or study… Continue reading This One Doesn’t Have a Title

When Innocence Equates Ignorance

I don't usually go out of my way to make others think I'm a good person. And, as far as I'm concerned, I don't care whether people think I'm a good person or not. But last winter, I decided that I was too much of a terrible person and I should try to be selfless… Continue reading When Innocence Equates Ignorance

Running From Dogs and Possibly Murderers

To me, running always felt a lot like dying. Nothing about it seemed appealing. Willingly pushing oneself through the outdoors to work up a sweat seemed to me to be a sure sign of insanity. But then I decided I wanted to be insanely toned. So I've been going running. And I've realized I have… Continue reading Running From Dogs and Possibly Murderers

I’ve Been Mistaken for Someone Who is Sunny

For reasons unbeknownst to me, I've been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I didn't think this day would ever come, and if it had, I only assumed it would be because I had poured a lot of my money into some other blogger's ventures. But this didn't cost me a dime! I didn't have… Continue reading I’ve Been Mistaken for Someone Who is Sunny

It’s 1 AM and the Police are Shutting Down a Party

I'd had a personal internalized vendetta against the obnoxious idiots who lived in the apartment below me. A vendetta that included complaining to my roommates and mumbling to myself and not addressing the situation like a responsible adult should. But it's finally happening! And I didn't have to do it! Someone else finally worked up… Continue reading It’s 1 AM and the Police are Shutting Down a Party

It’s 5 AM and My Neighbors Won’t Shut Up

I don't even live on campus, so I don't know why this is, but somehow my downstairs neighbors are the loudest people in my apartment complex. This perplexes me because up until about 2 weeks ago, I didn't even know anyone was living down there. My upstairs neighbors, the stampede of high heel-wearing wild animals… Continue reading It’s 5 AM and My Neighbors Won’t Shut Up
