I’m convinced no one knows true hardship until bugs infest their bedroom. Of course this is silly of me to assert, as there are plenty of terrible things that can happen to one in life, but really… bugs infesting my room? What did I do to deserve this? Carpet beetles are tiny devils that made … Continue reading sort of suffering? put a bag over your head
Or anything, for that matter. I proudly continue to use my mother's Netflix account and had a Hulu account for about a week before guilting myself into deleting it because $7.99 a month is out of my budget.

And so, a step-by-step process of my personal search for "business casual"... Step … Continue reading an ode to business casual
I have lots of goals. Sure, I want to be a good mom and stuff like that, but here are some of my goals that are just for me (in no particular order)... I want to do something creative every day. Even if it’s only for 30 minutes. I used to do lots of artsy … Continue reading goals are good
