27 Things I Learned as I Turned 27

So… Since the response to my previous blog (26 Things I Learned as I Turned 26) turned out pretty good, I thought I’d take another stab at it for 2016 (better late than never I guess). I always think it’s good to do some regular introspection. So I thought of all of the experiences I’ve…

27. Single. Virgin.

So… I’m single. Acute on chronic. I have my run-ins with boys here and there, but I’ve been pretty damn single for a long time. A long, long time. I’m also a virgin. Chronic. Why? Well it started out as a “because my parents told me so” thing, but eventually grew into my own thing….

Lessons in Grief

So… this is a more morbid topic, but it’s something that constantly comes up in life, unfortunately. Long story short, car accidents are stupid and cancer sucks. I’ve lost friends, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. But the hardest, by far, to endure was losing my dad. I’ve had people ask me how I do it and…

Oh the Irony

So… I listened to a comedy set by Patton Oswalt titled, “Moments of Ironic Destiny”. He talks about how, in movies, the main characters always have these moments of ironic destiny. He used the example of a young Charlie Parker pausing in front of a saxophone in the window of a store and the audience…

Feminine

So… I started listening to this audiobook called “Lean In”, written by Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook. It’s turning out to be really fascinating. It’s all about women in leadership and the cultural barriers that we’ve set for women, causing us to hold ourselves back in our careers. It explores questions like why men…

FITspiration

So… I worked out today. I know! I’ve been making strides since my first “attempt” at exercise (aka buying tickets to the cookie con). But this time I actually went to the gym and actually did some physical activity. Speaking of which, I actually joined a gym. I am now a proud member of 24…

Awkwardly Perfect Valentine’s Day Cards

So… Here are a few Valentine’s Day cards I made for all those yes‘s, no‘s, and maybe‘s in your life. Haaaaaapppyyy Valentine’s Day! For someone who’s like a pro at being single, I actually LOVE Valentine’s Day. It’s a wonderful day full of cards, candy, and carbohydrates. AND if you’re single you have no one to judge you…

I’m Going to Start Exercising… Tomorrow

So… this morning, my boss asked me the same question she asks me every morning, “Did you work out today?” Mmmm about that… So at the beginning of the year I told her that one of my New Year’s resolutions was to “exercise more”. I purposefully left it vague. That way there would be no…

That Time We Became Galactic Heroes

So… My friends and I went to Disneyland last Sunday. My friend, Casey, works for Disney (no not Disneyland. Like he actually works for the company. He always has to make that very clear), so he was able to get a bunch of us in for free. It ended up being a group of like…

Season 20 Bachelor Fantasy Draft

So… Yesterday was our Season 20 Bachelor Fantasy Draft. This is big stuff people! What is this magical nonsense you ask?? Oh you didn’t? Too bad… Well basically, every week I get together with a group of friends to watch “The Bachelor”.  At the beginning of the season we draft teams, and as the season…

Slutty Stormtroopers

So… My friends and I went to go watch the new Star Wars movie on opening day. Let me just be honest with you, I’m not a huge Star Wars fan. Don’t get me wrong. I love the franchise and I’ve seen the movies a ton of times. When I lived in Ohio and had…

26 Things I Learned as I Turned 26

So… I thought it’d be cool to write down a few things that I learned in 2015. This is a repost from my Facebook. Just some introspection for the new year. If you disagree, cool. If you learn something, then you’re welcome, I just saved you a year of hard lessons. BOOM. Also it was just…
