Your Life Is Messed Up.

Your hair is too dry, too oily, too straight, not bouncy enough, too curly, not windblown, the wrong color, out of date. Your teeth aren’t white enough, let alone straight enough. Your breath stinks, and your skin is blotchy. You’re too big, too small, not […]

Resources: SCRAP

SCRAP is awesome, full stop. Unfortunately, that simple sentence doesn’t really convey what the deal is with SCRAP, so here’s a rundown of the why and how behind SCRAP’s awesomeness. SCRAP stands for Scrounger’s Center for Reusable Art Parts. It’s a 501(c)3 that was founded […]

More Transitions

I did say I’d do this, huh? Transitions. They trip you up, totally screw up your groove. Thing is, our lives are soaked with them. So what are they? If you’re really into this, I would suggest a visit to Terry Prince. She’s got this […]

Gift Guilt

Holidays are done, New Year’s has been put to bed, and the confetti has been swept away. Most off you are embracing a new set of resolutions, intentions, goals, or whatever people are calling them nowdays. I’m not here to talk about that. I’m here […]

The Power of Nice

The dust has settled, the episode of Hoarders aired. If you’re curious, you can check the episode out here, along with deleted scenes and pictures. General consensus from friends and random posters alike has been “Yep, they were mean.” Granted, what was seen was only […]
