229. How to… give yourself a break.

Okay, so... I spent most of the day in bed today. Bad Nova. This morning, when I woke up, my back and my neck were pretty messed up. I assume I slept on a rock, or was teleported to an alternate dimension wherein my mattress was made of pointy sticks. In any case, it's been… Continue reading 229. How to… give yourself a break.

228. How to… start the new year off right.

So, Christmas with the family was a little more interesting than I care to detail here, but... I do have a story time to share with you all. See, in the process of my move, I mega-busted my keyboard and found out that the warranty was poof. I then spent the last several weeks longingly… Continue reading 228.

217. How to… hold on to the hope.

Apart from being a whole exploration of the idea of Stockholm Syndrome, Beauty and the Beast was simply just... one of my favorite Disney movies. It was when I was a little girl, it is today, and it probably always will be. I could care less about some of the more controversial ideas attached to… Continue reading 217.

216. How to… give yourself a break.

So... the house didn't work out. The inspection was the stuff nightmares were made of, and the seller I think was hoping that I wouldn't be smart enough to hire an inspector of my own. He refused to address any of the issues, so I walked away from the deal, and it's back to the… Continue reading 216. How to… give yourself a break.

I admittedly had a nice chuckle while working on this photo last night. There I was, playing around on Second Life and looking for new poses on the marketplace... while editing a photo of my avatar looking around on the marketplace. That's some Inception-level awesomeness, right? But in all seriousness... I took Friday and Monday… Continue reading 202. How to… disconnect.

201. How to… weather the storm.

The truth of the matter is, if life was mundane and utterly predictable every day, we'd all be bored to actual tears. Luckily it's not, but... still, sometimes, we wish it was. Sometimes, we want a day where nothing happens and we can simply do our best impression of a potato while watching Jerry Springer… Continue reading 201. How to… weather the storm.

200. How to… come out of the closet.

You're going to hear about pride a lot this month. Now, my English professors would slap me silly for using the term inside the definition, but pride is exactly what it sounds like. It's being proud of yourself. Having confidence in yourself. Loving yourself for all that you are - your best qualities, your flaws,… Continue reading 200. How to… come out of the closet.

194. How to… look at things differently.

Sometimes, when the unexpected happens, the best we can do is make a glass of lemonade with the lemons we've been handed. Sometimes, things simply aren't as they seem... or at least not as we expect them to seem. And that's okay. That's probably a lesson each of us has learned a few times (and… Continue reading 194.
