Has it Really Been 20 Years?

Kids, next weekend is my 20-Year High School Reunion. That's right. I graduated from high school way back in 1998. That's the 20th century, y'all. Am I really old enough to have a 20-year reunion? Sadly, yes. Being 38, I'm the perfect age for a 20-year reunion. Ugh... How did this happen? I'd swear I … Continue reading Has it Really Been 20 Years?

Texting

Do you ever feel like people just aren't receiving my texts? Maybe it's just me that feels that way. After all, you probably don't care whether or not people are reading my text messages. I just have to wonder what's happening to the messages I'm sending out sometimes. And overthinking tends to make me a … Continue reading Texting

So… I’m Doing Whole30

Alternatively, this post could have been titled "Of All the Decisions I've Ever Made in My Life, I Question This the Most" or "Why I Clearly Hate Myself and Everything I Stand For." Let me set the scene for you: It's Tuesday at the office. We're barrelling toward the end of the day at breakneck … Continue reading So… I’m Doing Whole30

Old Tales from Old Navy: The Broken Door

What follows is a tale from a long ago time when I worked retail for a small business known as Old Navy. What you are about to read is mostly true-ish. There are a lot of stupid people out there. Maybe stupid is the wrong word. I should probably just say ignorant. Because the people … Continue reading Old Tales from Old Navy: The Broken Door

The 5 Annoyances of Christmas

I know. You just read that title and thought, "This guy's such a Grinch!" But I'm really not. I love Christmas. I might not get as into the holiday spirit as a lot of people do, but I certainly don't sit around thinking of ways to ruin Christmas for everyone around me. There are just … Continue reading The 5 Annoyances of Christmas

How to Know if I Have a Crush on You

I'm single. Have been all my life. Beyond that, I'm an introverted single person. That makes it extremely difficult for me to approach a woman to whom I'm attracted in order to generate a conversation out of thin air. Therefore, all I ever really experience are crushes. You know, like a kid will have on … Continue reading How to Know if I Have a Crush on You

#DescribeYourselfin3FictionalCharacters

Jess, over at You're Fine did a post about this hashtag phenomenon she came across on Twitter the other day. I'm sorry to say, I missed out on the Twitter trend. I'm not sure I should admit that, seeing as how my new job requires me to constantly keep my finger on the pulse of … Continue reading #DescribeYourselfin3FictionalCharacters

How to Make Bronchitis Fun

So your general practitioner has diagnosed you with bronchitis. And now you're sitting at home thinking, "This is just no fun!" as you hack into your sleeve or a handkerchief.

That Time I Got Beat Up By a Girl

I'm a sarcastic individual. If you only know me through this blog, I would hope that my sarcasm comes through in my writing. But I know it's difficult to convey tone through the written word. Anyone who knows me in real life can pick up on my sarcasm easily. One of my best friends even … Continue reading That Time I Got Beat Up By a Girl

Hanging Out at the Pottery Barn

Last week I went to a children's ministry conference with the children's ministry staff from my church (which is a great story in and of itself, so I'll let you know when it's posted). On the way back to Virginia from Atlanta, we stopped at an outlet mall to get some much needed shopping done. … Continue reading Hanging Out at the Pottery Barn
