My Friends Graduated!

So… I was totally bad last week and didn’t post anything (not like anyone cares, but I care, so there! – that rhymed). In my defense, I had this post written and ready, but then life got hectic and I went out of town and blah blah blah. So, to counteract my lack of postage…

Breakthrough

So… It’s official – I’m going to Bali in 3 weeks! I just got my social work visa approved last week. I’m going there for 2 weeks to volunteer at a turtle conservatory. I know right?? Just one of the many stops in “Katrina’s Breakup Tour 2018”. I’ll explain a little more about Bali in…

New & Improved Bachelor Fantasy League

So… In honor of “The Bachelorette” premiere yesterday, I wanted to give you an update on our Bachelor Fantasy League. If you are one of the 5 people that follow my blog (yeah… I’m up to 5 now… I’m pretty much a big damn deal… hi mom), you may remember that I’ve blogged about this in the past…

Persistence & a Dash of Crazy

So… Let’s take a break from my downer posts and talk about something funnnnn. Where my “Bachelor” fans at? Because I’m gonna talk about something I learned from following this show. Yes… I actually learned something! For those of you who watch “The Bachelor” franchise… this happened I know right??? Like in what world… For…

Break Ups & Break Downs

So… I realize that this is a weird announcement to make on a blog post, but seeing as how I’ve already talked about my vagina, I guess anything goes around here. Well for lack of a more eloquent way to say it – I just got dumped. I don’t want to put my ex on…

28 Things I Learned as I Turned 28

So… Holy crap, I haven’t written anything in here since my last “Things I Learned” blog post!  Surprisingly people have actually been asking when I was gonna post something new. What the heck? People actually read this junk?? Despite your questionable taste, thanks for the love guys! I am going to TRY to post a…

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…
