Whew! First off, I thought I’d log on and realize that it’s been almost a year since I’ve written anything. Luckily that’s not the case. While I haven’t written since October, it seems it just feels like almost a year. So much has changed since October – good and bad. I was told that I … Continue reading Oh Dear.
Okay okay so you’re not supposed to take these things too seriously. But listen, this thing kinda freaked me out. I mean, it was really accurate. Try it for yourself: 100 Things Personality Test Like horoscopes, sometimes these things have a way of being incredibly generic and yet convincing enough to make every person feel … Continue reading Some Quiz Just Explained Me to Me
I turn 30 in November. I’m not upset about it, so don’t expect a woe-is-me post.
(Though, this blog contains an unfortunate number of those, if you’re into that sort of thing.)
I really don’t feel that grown up. Perhaps because I’m not making as much money as I thought I would be at this point in my life, or I’m not in the position of power that I’d like, or that we don’t have kids and a mortgage. Perhaps it’s because I had to grow up so fast, that I ignored my teens and went gung-ho into the twenties trying to prove myself professionally.
Crap, this IS starting out like a woe-is-me post. Okay, let me see if I can turn this boo-hoo ship around, folks.
I started subconsciously building this list around the beginning of the year. Call it a coping mechanism for the aging, but it’s got me thinking about the myriad of things that I’ve either started implementing, learned, or should probably have down pat before the Fall. This creeping sense of confidence is growing. I finally know what I want and what I don’t. And it seems to have morphed into the following.
Is it too early to start talking about New Year Resolutions? Because eff it; I’m about to. Now, I normally don’t make resolutions since I know I will just break them. Most of the time they have to do with weight anyway, and we all know that weight-related resolutions go strong until about March, and … Continue reading A resolution I may try less hard to break
Hi everyone. It’s me again, Laila. Remember me? Of course you do! Here I am! See? Right here. Where have I been? Well at work of course! But you’ve already been working kinda, (you say, with a shrug of your shoulder). Yes, yes well I have, but I went back and got a big girl job … Continue reading hi
I have several draft posts set aside for myself, one of which I added just last night. Several are from this time last year, when I started my blog. They have to do with my family and my childhood, and were largely my efforts to piece together what I know from the snippets, memoirs, white … Continue reading Ignore This Post.
Many of us have (or maybe have not?) heard of the Swedish Tight Pants Theory. It essentially postulated that Swedish men of the 1970’s experienced higher levels of infertility in comparison to men in surrounding countries, primarily due to their strict adherence to the very fashionable, yet in hindsight seemingly foolish, style of wearing uncomfortably … Continue reading Bieber Hair & The Swedish Tight Pants Theory
I started a “meetup” a while back to study for a grad school program test. It was actually pretty well received and we did really well. (I never ended up taking the damn test, because I like to shoot myself in the foot a lot, but that’s for another post.) A few of the people … Continue reading No Hiding on the Innernet
Okay so I up and quit my job in this horrible time. For my wah-wahs about it, click here. In a nutshell – Hubby’s business was finally doing well enough to give me the tiniest bit of breathing room. I had enough saved up to get me through a few months, plus I’d been wanting … Continue reading 3 Months, In Paint
So that post-binge feeling of literally being so full that you feel like it’s just going to spill out of your ears? I don’t think it’s caused by just the food. I think in all that fullness, there’s a portion of space taken up by sheer guilt. Guilt about what you just did. Guilt about … Continue reading I can’t remember who said it, but it still helps thismuch
