Oh, my gosh, you guys. If all the stars align and nothing explodes and there is literally nothing else crazy that happens, I close on my first house in like nine days. Nine. Days. My house. A house of my own. With four walls and a roof and a yard. In a neighborhood. With kids… Continue reading 221. How to… see through the darkness.
188. Pro-tip: Give yourself all the time you need.
Today marks one year since we said goodbye to my gran, but it doesn't feel like a year. The last couple days - hell, couple weeks, even - I've found myself getting so emotional over the most trivial things. Things that, simply put, just don't matter. I'll admit to being an emotional person, anyway, I… Continue reading 188. Pro-tip: Give yourself all the time you need.
177. How to… not let them down (or yourself either, for that matter)…
It's been a rough week. Or couple of weeks? Sometimes I feel like a broken record when I have to type that out, but c'est la vie, I guess. So, my computer bit the dust. I am lucky enough that I had money in savings to get a new one, but I lost everything -… Continue reading 177. How to… not let them down (or yourself either, for that matter)…
170. How to… make your mark.
If we were all put on this earth to do nothing more than grow old, pay bills, and work every day until we die, it wouldn't be a very exciting life, would it? I have long held the belief that we were put here for something far greater than that. Some of you may attribute… Continue reading 170. How to… make your mark.
145. Who do you run to? (and don’t y’all dare say, “An alt!” either. That won’t fix it.)
There was a time not so long ago when I thought I had it all figured out. I had my ride-or-die people and I thought everything was grand. But - and this will happen to everyone at least once in their lives - I realized that I had placed my trust and my confidence into… Continue reading 145. Who do you run to? (and don’t y’all dare say, “An alt!” either. That won’t fix it.)
131. How to… take a risk.
Why yes, there is a bit of a double-meaning to this post. I'm so glad you asked! *coughs* Anyway, so last week I snuck (sneaked? - I literally work in editing and publishing in RL and this word is an actual heated debate topic for some... moving on) I spirited away to New York for… Continue reading 131. How to… take a risk.
128. How to… knock on wood.
I'm moved... finally. And I have internet. And things are still an absolute mess, and there's boxes everywhere, and things to be put away, and things to be re-arranged, and then probably re-arranged again... but I'm here, and things are finally starting to calm down, and I'm able to breathe again. And... that alone has… Continue reading 128. How to… knock on wood.
116. How to… avoid SL’s cardinal sin.
I already know what y'all are thinking, so before we get started, I'll clarify. Here's a list of the topics about which we are NOT talking today: "Is anyone going to tell her that her ankle lock isn't on and her foot is sticking out her belly button?""Come on now. Turn on your AO. You're… Continue reading 116. How to… avoid SL’s cardinal sin.
101. How to… slay what you want to slay.
Guys... things are getting a little out of hand. I'm not talking about that time that I accidentally added every item in my Blueberry folder to my avatar all at once. I mean, that was funny, but this goes beyond that. I have been dealing with some pretty epic level insomnia for the past couple… Continue reading 101. How to… slay what you want to slay.
90. How to… keep the momentum going!
We're going to go beneath the surface a bit today. Sometimes, it can be hard to keep up your focus. I'll use myself as an example (bet you saw that coming, didn't you?). This week has been pretty horrible. I'm leaving for Florida tomorrow to visit my grandparents amidst a storm of family drama that… Continue reading 90. How to… keep the momentum going!
