The Sin Of Restlessness…

Many people I know complain that laziness and complacency are their enemies. “I’d get so much more done if I didn’t want to stay home and watch TV”, “I know I should try to cook more, but it’s way easier to order a pizza”, “I went to work today and still didn’t get anything done.” […]

Everybody’s (Not) Working For The Weekend….

As I briefly referenced, but didn’t really explain in my previous posts, I’ve found myself suddenly unemployed. As a freelancer, it’s hard to be “unemployed”. You understand there are times when you’ll have more work than you can handle, and other times when the jobs aren’t there. However, my time working as a freelance writer […]

Finding The Keys To Balance….

I meant to spend time today writing about the trouble I got myself into while visiting Charlotte last week, but suddenly and without warning, got overwhelmed by work. So, on a related note…..: It’s no secret that Americans have a lot of unhealthy habits. Study after study is being performed in order to prove that […]

Connectedly Disconnected….

I recently read this blog post, which is exquisitely thoughtful and well-written, and a very honest look at what it’s like to be a not-so-grown-up in today’s non-stop world. It’s a sad fact of life that the more connected and plugged-in we become as a society, the more disconnected we ultimately become from one another. […]

Struggling With Failure And Imperfection….

This weekend, I had a very busy weekend, which I was looking forward to enjoying. On Friday afternoon, I conquered one of my fears, going out alone to do errands, and took a trip to the waxing salon, did some shopping, and enjoyed lunch at a Mexican restaurant. Friday evening, I planned a little dinner […]

Post-Holiday Recovery, Or EEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Too stressed out with work and sickness and dog-sitting to write anything of interest. Mostly, nothing interesting happens to me lately, anyhow. However, I did see this quote I absolutely loved on Twitter today, so I’ll just leave you all with this thought as I pig out on Domino’s in my PJ’s with a box […]

On recognizing value…

Writing for a living means I am far less chatty on my blog, which is ironic, seeing as I finally got around to re-claiming my domain and reconnecting with my great love of emotional exhibitionism. This week, I signed a new client, which is good news. Even better, it’s the first client I’ve encountered who […]

When Creativity Grows Routine….

One of the negative side effects of writing for a living is that I don’t always find the joy and excitement in writing about other things in my spare time. In fact, by the end of the day, I’m often so burned out from interacting with a computer screen and keyboard, all I want to […]
