When I was a tween I suffered through embarrassment after embarrassment. Some incidents truly mortifying. As a young girl, we go through very painful events in our lives that just make us cringe. Menstrual onset, pimples, and first bras are some of the most excruciatingly embarrassing moments in […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
Maybe I watch too much television. Actually, it’s not a maybe. I watch a lot of television shows at off hours and in binge spurts as I records all my shows of interest. Watching anything live us an extreme exercise in trying to stay “present” I actually wish […]
I am a fairly even-tempered temperamental person. The same way that I am an extroverted introvert. I believe in justice and fairness, but also believe it cannot be uniform. Thus, I may at times present a complicated persona. Many moons ago, a network colleague wrote a letter complaining […]

What’s a Valentine without a little blood and gore? Sure the day is associated with romantic love, but there are also many associated tragedies. But I am not here to talk about those at all. It’s a festive day, of sorts. Or also a lonely day, of sorts. […]
In this day and age of the selfie and twitter, many people relish having a spotlight on themselves. I’m reminded of some old cartoon where the stage spotlight kept moving and the animated character desperately tried to keep up so as to remain in that spotlight. It was […]
Living in a major metropolitan, urban area affords you many luxuries. You have 24 hour urgent cares and grocery stores-whichever way your stomach is bending at 3am. You have diversity of people allowing you, if you are willing, to learn about cultures outside of your own. You have […]
