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.
When do you feel most productive? This morning, the day before my birthday, I woke up at 6:35am. Not atypical of me, by the way. I went downstairs, made coffee, and drank a red bull. Then, I decided to garden for two hours. Well, gardening is a strong […]
The month of may is almost here, and usually, I’m very excited about this upcoming month. As the month of May is my birthday month. But it’s been a tough year thus far. There’s thunder and lightning today, and the day is dreary. Tomorrow promises no less dreariness. […]
What topics do you like to discuss? My birthday is coming up in a few days. I love my birthday month. However, the last year was quite horrid and sad. I’ve come to lower my expectations. Although I am keeping one of my expectations that it will rain. […]

Describe a risk you took that you do not regret. A few years ago, a primary care provider noted I’m high in sensation-seeking. I don’t like rollercoasters. Don’t care too much for ziplining. I’m not keen on parachuting out of an airplane. But maybe one day. However, I […]
In my head, I softly apologized I asked for forgiveness hoping to clear my mind But because the words are unsaid There is no response Apologizing into the air is sadness I’m now hungry, tired, and alone Forgiveness living in my synapses Waiting for the weight to be […]
What makes you nervous? Just last week, a medical provider came into the exam room and grabbed my hands. He asked me whether I was nervous as I appeared to be. I looked at him and noted, I was not necessarily nervous about the actual biopsy. Instead, I […]
How do you unwind after a demanding day? I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have a demanding day. Work, plus, medical appointments, plus taking care of the house tend to wear me down. I actually started to write this post at 3 am, and then I […]
She was a very practical person. Not super romantic. But she knew that he was. A helpless romantic. They couldn’t be more different. Yet, when she was in this courtyard she was overcome with feelings. Any wall she touched sent actual shivers down her spine. These shivers and […]
It’s been a long day of doing nothing. I woke up with goals. I attempted to address said goals. I even wrote a short, manageable to-do list of eight items, and I got through two items. Although, one item was that of pay bills, and I dutifully paid […]
