And I’m learning how to be okay with it and go with the flow

I know I can’t be alone in having a mental illness. I’ll be honest, I’m wondering if I have more than one. I was diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder and Major Depression about six years ago when I was in community college. …


I recently turned 30 and am unsure how I feel about it

Thirty, flirty and thriving, I want to be thirty, flirty and thriving. This is a line from the 2004 movie “13 Going on 30”. Which came out when I was about 13 actually. I never wished to be 30 growing up. I was perfectly content with each age as they…


Many people assume that because I have tattoos and piercings, that I likely work in retail or am a tattoo artist myself. Wrong. I work in an office and it isn’t that uncommon.

Growing up, all I’ve heard is that people who are tattooed and pierced people are dirty people who don’t have great job prospects. I never saw people that way. I saw people with tattoos and piercings as free spirited people who love showing their personality on their skin.

Some improvements have been made for women in the office and being made to feel comfortable. There are still some setbacks that we women have to deal with that we shouldn’t.

I currently work in an office setting. It is probably the best job I have ever had and don’t plan on leaving for a while. Even with how much I care for my job, there are some things I wish I could change about its culture.

Pokemon Go has been out for almost 3 years and my husband just decided to get the app because he got a newer phone. I have been playing it regularly since I got my new phone last year. It has done wonders for our marriage.

Quality Time

My husband has been going to school to obtain his B.S. and succeed in the I.T. industry. He is working almost full-time while in school. I will be going to school this summer to get my B.S. in Professional Communication and Emerging Media. …


Literally no one did.

As many have read in the last month or so, the game Anthem isn’t doing too well. …


Making mistakes is a part of life, learn from it and move on.

Yesterday I made a mistake of sending an invite to clients under To and not BCC. Oops! I was embarrassed to say the least because it feels like such a rookie mistake and common sense says that…


It seems to be a trend on Facebook for people to talk about “cutting out toxic people”. While it may get annoying to see those posts on your timeline, people have legitimate reasons for cutting out people. Whether it be abuse, maturity, difference of opinion, etc.
