This is Life Now

Pandemic. Such a surreal thing. It’s a thing that only happens in movies and on TV, right? It doesn’t happen in real life? Nope. It totally does. And I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise all the millions of little, and not so little ways, humanity was just not ready at all. Personally, I’m not panicked. I have a basic…

This is Happening

So … here is a thing that is happening.  I am buying a house. Holy shitballs I’m doing a totally adult thing, like an adult and stuff.  And I’m FREAKING TERRIFIED and stressed and anxious and also very happy and excited.  Basically all of the feels. Mike and I have been together just over 3 years now.  We started talking…

So Many Changes

I got a note from a friend recently and she mentioned that this Blog’s popped up on her Facebook memories, and it reminded her of how much she enjoyed reading it.

At about 7:45 on New Year’s Eve, 5-ish minutes after leaving our house, headed to a party, we were cruising down Dublin-Granville Road and another driver turned left…

Positively Exhausting

Making this difficult for me is the constant battle against the war in my brain that happens, thanks to the fun Bipolar roller-coaster I am perpetually riding. Let me tell you … when your coaster car hits that low dip…

Qualifications For Kindness

One of the things I do in my new job is answering our “Hotline.”  It’s a number people can call to report any potential or suspected illegal construction work being done in the city. Most of the calls I get are valid and require investigation. However, most of the calls I get are also from people being douchebags because their…
