How I Feel About Cold Weather


There’s always that one person in your group of friends who blurts out “I can’t wait for winter! I love the cold!” To that person — I SINCERELY dislike you right now. It hurts my face to leave the house. And I’m going to blame you for that. Let’s just recap what I’ve said so far: the air hurts my face.THE AIR HURTS MY FACE.THE AIR.HURTS MY FACE.Brrr! I remember being seven or eight years old and flat out building a snow-fort that I could sit and hang out…




Lately, I’ve been frustrated beyond all reason. 

And if you’re wondering what me being frustrated has to do with crocheting, let me explain..

I’ll be doing some menial task, like the dishes or sweeping, and BOOM — an idea for a blog post, or business graphic, but I can’t seem to just hunker down and get anything written + posted! My mind will race and for those few moments its on my mind I AM SO MOTIVATED! As soon as I sit down so that I can get started, it’s as if the motivation just decides to take it’s lunch break and I’m sitting in front of my computer, staring blankly at a white screen + flashing cursor. 


I solved my own puzzle!



A big part of the reason why I stopped blogging for a while is because I felt like something was missing. I didn’t know what, exactly, but there was definitely just something lacking from my day to day life. I wasn’t facing any challenges, other than the fact that I didn’t WAAAANNA. And you know when you’re just… not happy with something? I definitely had that feeling hovering over me like a dark cloud that was about to pour rain any minute. 

I wasn’t WANTING to get up out of bed, and drag myself to work, and then deal with people I DIDN’T want to deal with.  That “tomorrow’s a brand new day” crap just wasn’t working for me. Every day felt like such a struggle + sometimes wasn’t worth it. And I tried, believe me, I TRIED! I needed to do something, so, when a job opened up at an office that my cousin worked at, I jumped on the opportunity to start something NEW + CHALLENGING! 


So, it’s been a while…


A lot has changed in the last couple of months.

I know I’ve been MIA, and I’m sorry about that.


I’ve been busy making changes (for the better!) in my life and it’s just been kinda tiring and a lot to handle. And as you all know, sometimes.. something’s gotta give. It sucked that it was writing + blogging, but I think the break made me realize how important it was to me and that I knew it wouldn’t be gone forever. 


That Time My Rental Car Almost Blew Up


Now, this is the story all about how my rental almost blew up downtown… *cue the Fresh Prince theme*..

Well, okay, saying it “blew up” is a bit of a stretch, but.. well, just read on!

I promise it’s entertaining!


Why I Took a Break (And Why I Don’t Regret It)


Well, well, well..

Guess who’s back from much needed time away? THIS GIRL. 

It’s been over a month since my last post.

I know. A MONTH. What have I been doing you ask? Well, a lot’s been going on. I started writing a novel (AKA started getting some of the details sorted out), took on a few DIY projects (and let’s be honest, I’m STILL taking on DIY projects!), and have upgraded from “spring cleaning” to “summer purging” — and it’s exhausting.
