Here is the sad truth about me and my love/hate relationship with television. If I like it, it will get cancelled. If I love an actor on the show, they will leave the next season. If I ship it, it will sink. If I praise the writing, the next season’s writing will be trash. I’m … Continue reading Me and the TV Show Curse
January is just around the corner which means soon we’ll be knee deep in new year diet fads, unrealistic resolutions and a hungover bank account thanks to Christmas. I’m guilt of writing that long list of resolutions and being adamant on the 1st of January that ‘THIS IS GOING TO BE MY YEAR!’. I’m not even ashamed to admit that. I love the thought of a new year full of new opportunities; a proper fresh start. I love the new year that much that I like to plan for it, I like to plan ahead. So, I thought I’d share with you how I’m going to prepare for 2018.
Write Your List Of Resolutions
You know you can’t resist writing that list of resolutions so go on, get that pen and paper and get writing. Don’t be too unrealistic, I mean at the top of my list every year is…

The holidays bring up all kinds of feelings like Joy, Love, Loneliness, and Nostalgia. One begins to think of what they accomplished (or failed to) over the past year and all the holiday parties have a way of pointing out how alone they feel. The Holidays have a way of making someone think back to times when they were wanted and comforted.
Suddenly you get text from your ex!
First option is that they’re just bored and horny. These are the fuckboys that breadcrumb you, maybe it’s one from your local neighborhood and you’re both home for the holidays with not much to do. Or if they’ve been lonely for a while, the holiday season really puts them in ‘the mood’ wink wink*.
Second option is that your ex want to reconnect. It’s possible you’ve only been broken up for a short time. They still miss the connection and…

Another online dating misadventure. Love reading these because they make me feel like I’m not alone in this dating craziness.
Dating is such an enormous challenge for people coming out of bad, toxic relationships. We get signals crossed, often don’t pick up on subtle clues and, because we’re still a little flinchy, we try desperately to dodge any future problems by creating a set of dating rules or expectations, just so as not to get burned again. And while a certain amount of protection in the form of guidelines or boundaries is always a good thing, too many will insure that you pretty much never date again. here’s how to cut back on a few of those iron clad rules…
Don’t make assumptions about people before you know them: My mother used to say, Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see. And that especially goes for dating. Dating between two healthy individuals is tricky, tricky, tricky, but for those who come from abusive or…

It happens all too often that we get so caught up in what happens in everyday life that we forget what we have, where we came from and where we are now. Ill be the first to admit the day to day life struggles of balancing my family needs, idiots at work (putting it mildly), … Continue reading Gratitude
Click bait titles will only get you so far. To really reel in good readers you need to work hard on presenting the right content.
It all depends on the type of blog you run. If you own a personal blog like I do, I just post all things related to me like poetry, short stories and some blogging related articles from my experience. Good content for me, is real writing. Heart felt words reach out better to people than faking emotions and pushing out content when I’m not ready to write. So my advice to all the personal bloggers out there is to write passionately and elaborately. Give them what they come to you for.
If you own a “how to” type of blog, they key is to write articles about things no one else is writing about. If your blog is about dog training don’t write the general…

With the holidays coming up, this might be the first family gathering your significant other will attend. Drunk grandpas, loud aunts, and unfiltered kids you have no idea what’s going to come out of their mouth next or what crazy thing they might do under the watch of a fresh pair of eyes. Will your significant other feel awkward and come off cold and distant? Will their vibrant personality rub some cousins the wrong way?
There are pros and cons of having a significant other meet family during a large gathering. Parties usually have various small groups or couples chatting together throughout the area which can help keep your SO from feeling too overwhelmed and you might be able to dodge any troublesome relatives. Even with a large group, the attention might not be all on your SO since parties are always a good time for people to catch up…

Donna Karan, Mayim Bialik and now Gabby Douglas. All well known respected women who decided to use their platform to victim shame. In each woman’s case they didn’t have much to say in the beginning about the Sexual Assault allegations being exposed at an alarming rate until much later when they opened their mouths and … Continue reading Women can be each other’s worst enemy
Funny and real blog on online dating
I follow a lot of blogs dedicated to dating in modern day with the help of technology based matchmaking platforms such as Tinder, OK Cupid, or any multitude of online dating sites. Bloggers are always writing about searching for their Baby/Boo/BAE in a sea of ghosting, cat fishing, and benching, trying to determine if they’re DTF, DDF, DTE, or if they have a GSOH IRL, then defending their said catch from thirsty THOTs while trying to establish if they’re FWB, NSA, or being slayed by DTR (translation below).
