Letter of Imperfection
November 27th, 2017 Dear sir/madam, I am writing this letter in response to the “Perfection is overrated” position. I saw the quotation, “the more perfect people appear to be, the more they’re probably suffering, beginning with you” and I feel my qualifications make me a great candidate for this position. The socially constructed perfection meter … Continue reading Letter of Imperfection

Truth be told – Confessions of a struggler
(But why does it seem like I am always making confessions. Oh, well *insert shrugging woman emoji here*) Is struggler even a word though? Auto correct didn’t try to fix that so I guess it is. I got excited for a second thinking maybe I just created a new word for the “Nosi dictionary”. For … Continue reading Truth be told – Confessions of a struggler
Oh, snap!! There they go!!!

Mess Up to Clean Up
So I was cleaning up the other day – Aaaaand, by the other day I mean a few hours ago because #Saturday. I’ve been told that’s how “adulting” works. You get on that 8-4/9-5/whatever your 8-10 hour workday looks like. So you do that, right, from Monday to Friday and then you “take care of … Continue reading Mess Up to Clean Up
Tell 2016 boy bye!!! I ain’t sorry
Woah!!! Hello there first blog post of 2017!!!

I giggled as someone said, “Everything about 2016 screamed leap year” and gave that subtle … Continue reading Tell 2016 boy bye!!! I ain’t sorry
