One Week to Go

It’s just over one week until my departure for Ireland. There are so many emotions roiling inside of me right now, I couldn’t name them all if you asked me to. In general, though, I alternate between nearly peeing my pants with excitement and wanting to puke with nervousness. I keep thinking, “I have no […]

We have been to a lot of movies lately. In the last week we have seen Les Miserables, This is 40, The Hobbit, and The Rise of the Guardians. It was interesting that The Rise of the Guardians theatre was chock full of little kids, and it was probably the best behaved theatre we have […]

Warming Up My Cold Feet

The last few days, I’ve been experiencing an intense bout of cold feet whenever I think about Ireland. It’s amazing how many excuses my brain can come up with. I’ve never travelled before. How will I manage on my own? I won’t see friends or family or Bryan for six months. I’ll go crazy. I’ll […]

Keepin’ it Real

I should be elated with life right now. I know that I should. I have a lot to be grateful for. I wake up every morning with a roof over my head and food in my fridge – usually – and I go to work and I only have to battle the elements between my […]

Self-censorship

I spend a lot of time hiding myself. Constructing a persona that will be pleasing to as many people as possible. That will convince those who love me that I don’t have any dangerous opinions or original thoughts. I censor myself. I spend tons of time wondering if I would be better off acting differently, […]
