Oh My Lorde

You know, the majority of the concerts that I’ve attended in my lifetime have been for artists that came out during my parents’ time during their younger years. I’ve seen Journey a handful of times (kind of, even though I barely consider the group Journey because Steve Perry hasn’t been in the band for almost as long as I’ve been living), Heart, Stevie B, TKA, Pat Benatar, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner…and the list goes on.

The Best Kind Of Friend

Every once in a while, we meet people who we just click with. Sometimes, it happens within the very first conversation you have with them; other times, it happens later on. But either way, something about them peaks your interest, and makes you want to be their friend.

Wearing Blue

Seven years ago today, my cousin, Matthew, passed away. He was thirteen years old—far too young to die. I honestly don’t even remember the details of how it happened, but none of that really matters to me. What matters is that it happened, and that he didn’t deserve it. He was too good of a person.

The Best Of Times…And The Worst

There are two things you need to know about me; one, I don’t drink very often, and two, if I’ve done something once and didn’t like the experience, I never try to do it again. So, clearly, there’s a story as to why I’m like that. And I’m going to tell you it.

Blast From The Past, Wish For The Future

One of my favorite movies growing up was this one called Crossroads. It’s mainly about three girls who reconnect after a long-lost friendship, and it starred Britney Spears, Zoe Saldana, Taryn Manning, and Dan Aykroyd. Long story short, I lived for this movie.

Uncomfortably Me

Hey guys! Okay, so I know that I have basically went MIA, and I apologize for that. I am increasingly growing behind on my 365-day personal writing challenge; I will be resuming that either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how this goes, and my state of being. I am really tired. (I know that’s a bad excuse, but oh well.)

The Liebster Award

What is the Liebster Award exactly? Well, I wasn’t sure, either, so I did some quick research. Turns out, it’s a huge thing that bloggers do to promote other bloggers—which, in my opinion, is super sweet. It gives everyone involved an equal opportunity to find more content to read, and to connect with others in the blogging community. And what kind of blogger wouldn’t want that?

Thankful For You

One thing that you really need to understand about me is how protective I am when it comes to family—specifically my immediate family. The way I see it is that I can shit on them whenever I want to, because it’s my relationship with them, and I’ve seen just about every side of each and every one of them, to the point where I know them probably a little better than they know themselves.

Halfway Happy: The Importance Of Compromise

Compromise—it’s something that we all must deal with in our daily lives. It’s unavoidable, really; it’s one of the few things that you need to be ready to discuss in any kind of relationship. And if you are used to getting your way, and having things handed to you all the time, learning about compromise for the first time is like one huge rude awakening.

Sippin’ Tea

I get a sick sense of amusement whenever people ask me if I would like some coffee. This is because I don’t like coffee at all; I don’t even really care for the smell of it. And when I get the opportunity to tell people that I don’t like coffee, I love the reaction that follows.
