The trouble with the world today…

Okay, so the trouble with the world today is that the majority of people have become intolerant of differences. I sit and look at the current events and problems of the world and it all seems to stem back to being intolerant of what makes us different from other people.

Not everyone is meant to be the same. We evolved to be different. We aren’t supposed to think the same, talk the same, worship…

Keep your hands to yourself!

I spent a lot of time working with kids in various aspects of my life. That means I have spent a lot of time telling kids to keep their hands to themselves. I recall once having a conversation with a little girl that troubled me. She was running around hitting on a little boy who was around the same age as her, but bigger than her.

Me: Don’t hit him. You are supposed to keep your hands to…

GOD bless the exes!

GOD bless the exes!

Okay so I know this may sound weird but I am really thankful for my past loves.

No seriously. (Stop laughing and/or giving me the side eye.)

I was tweeting yesterday about understanding your personal love language. Your love language (by my definition) is the way you show love. It can also be the way you best receive love.

I have found that the most clear way that I show love is by devoting time…

Simply needed to write a few things out

Simply needed to write a few things out

So, I have found the need to write myself out of this depressed state that I am in.

Of course you wonder… “Why so depressed? Don’t you realize how blessed you are compared to others?”

Blah Blah Blah

Yes, I realized that I am an extremely blessed woman. I have a million things to be thankful/grateful for.

That doesn’t change the fact that I suffer from clinical depression and generalized anxiety…

Who gets custody of the “friend”?

Who gets custody of the “friend”?

The hard part about breakups is realizing who gets custody of the “friends”.

Seriously, this is incredibly tricky when couples run in the same circles. It often makes me wary about even dating someone who runs in the same circle as me. Why add more drama to an already uncomfortable situation?

Their friends were always their friends and only became your friend because you were dating them.

This…

See this is why…

See this is why…

See this is why fucks cannot be given

You give one and they want them all

They want them how they want them

When they want them

Heaven forbid the turtle move too slowly for them

All fucks should be given immediately

This is why fucks cannot be given

Because then when you try to tell them water is wet

They look at you like you are crazy

Tell them fire is hot

They look at you like you’re the one…

Sweetbites: The Gypsy’s Guide to Moving

Sweetbites: The Gypsy’s Guide to Moving

Okay… so… apparently I am addicted to moving. I am sitting here thinking about it and I have moved almost every year since 2005. It actually averages out to every year because I moved twice the first year and one year I didn’t move at all.

I say all that to giggle because I actually hate moving. I despise packing and unpacking. The stress of searching for a new place that will not make my…

Excuse me miss… why you so angry?

  1. Because you asked me that question.
  2. Because you used incorrect grammar doing it.
  3. Because Mountain Dew doesn’t come in an IV drip.
  4. Because a nine year old little girl knows all the words to every ratchet song on the radio but can not read.
  5. Because I just…

There are words there

From the moment our lips touched
I knew there were words there
I was prepared for my unexpected decision
to break rules set by the
stick-in-the-mud other half of my personality
Love keeping people on their toes
But I wasn’t prepared for the
split second…

The Reason

Let me be the reason behind your smile.

The random text message after a crazy commute.

The note in your coat pocket describing/encouraging your world domination.

The mental picture that causes the edges of your lips to stand at attention.

The surprise…

She is…

inspired by the song “She is” by NeYo featuring Tim McGraw…

I place complete blame on her.

That smile is so very intoxicating.

Hit me like an unexpected uppercut.

Those eyes defibrillated my damaged heart.

My heart, head, and hormones agree.

See this is…
