I have crappy vision. There I said it. When I was nine years, I started to wear glasses. Or so I think. I know for sure that at 14 years old, I was wearing glasses. And, I hated it. It designated me as a nerd. Or so that’s […]
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.
For thirteen years she had heard of him. The impact of his hardships on her current day-to-day life. The season was over and they had lit their last candle. She wanted to know the full story. All of it. She picked up the receiver and used the yellow […]
It is Friday. How exciting! A short work week. Next week we really dive in to making the year all that it can be. I normally wish to not wait. However, I have become a statistic. Like countless others I have come down with aches, chills, and general […]
I did pretty well this holiday season. I didn’t overindulged. I just indulged. I didn’t over-buy. I just bought enough. I didn’t over-reflect. I just reflected what I needed in order to keep moving forward. I’d like to say that I applied the right lessons from past holiday […]
To quote Gwen Stefani, it’s going to be bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S. And, not just because its going to be a leap year. Or because there will be four months in a row with a supermoon. I believe everyone knows to expect chaos and the unexpected this coming year. In […]
I’ve got this! Took me a week or more. Actually a few months. Each year, just like Merriam Webster and others alike, I chose a word of the year. Sometimes it is retrospectively applied. Other times, I pick a word for the coming year to help frame my […]
Now, while inauthenticity may have risen this past decade, there were also good things to come about. Before I dive into that let me note that one can perhaps argue that inauthenticity didn’t rise. Perhaps it was just more overt and blatant. Inauthenticity put on a show this […]
Quick. Let’s play a game of stream of consciousness. From 2010 to 2019, what are the first words or images that come to mind. For me, it is in no particular order of significance (says the psychologist) Miley Cyrus, Hurricane Maria, Uber, Sandy Hook, Superstorm Sandy, Trump, Avengers, […]
Despite me not being 100% sold on this coming week being the last week of decade, I’ll still go ahead with my own retrospective. Before diving into that, what I meant is that I am partly of the belief that the decade starts in 2021. But if everyone […]
During Superstorm Sandy we did not evacuate. We were inland, in the suburbs. At around 11pm, we lost all electricity. At around midnight we heard a large tree crash. We just hoped it wasn’t on the house. The wind was fierce. It’s howl even fiercer. We survived that […]
