Girls Just Wanna Have Their Own Plate of Fries

Today a bunch of Trader Joe’s Wheat Crisps soaked up my feelings and it felt amazing. It would only have been better had they sidled up to a personal-pan-sized wheel of Brie with some raspberry jam and gone all in.

Work has been rough lately.

Oh, you too? (Hugs)

It is the heat AND the humidity!

Holy Sweet Baby Gee, it is HOT up in here! Sitting here sweating to death in my own home lusting after my neighbors two (2!) air conditioning units that I can almost reach out and touch from the comfort of my couch reminds me of my complete dependance upon what my family would call “bought air.”

Seriously, where is my Whine?

Last night I was introduced to the amazingness of BuzzFeed’s Whine About It.  It’s a lovely little no frills, low key, weekly video bit done by staff writer Matt Bellassai and it’s all I am right now.  Why?  Because I needed that little burst of Whine and I definitely need it to be about all this Adulting I am finding so hard to do right now.

You will watch this on BuzzFeed NOW. Continue reading

Simply Sweet Briar

Since it was recently announced that my alma mater, Sweet Briar College, intends to close it’s doors at the end of the current semester, alumnae have rallied to save the school, many of them sharing their personal stories of why they chose to attend Sweet Briar and what Sweet Briar did for them. There are so many inspiring stories from former and current students, parents, professors and friends of the college. The outpouring of love and support has been overwhelming and in many ways apparently long overdue.

How To Start Letting Go

What the hell is wrong with me?!?
