What can I do?

I want you to live. I’d been overwhelmed with emotions all day at work. If you get stopped by the police, could you please put your hands up and just do what they say? I imagined this conversation that I’d have with my two brothers after work. I...

Little Boxes

The song, Little Boxes by Malvina Reynolds has haunted me since the moment I heard it in college. It has since been made famous as some television show’s title sequence, but when I hear it, I can’t help but think about my life. I never...

The Invisible Hero

My daughter is naturally strong like her mother, sheds few tears when she is corrected but is most hurt when she is embarrassed or left out. The past few nights have been rough for my little person because quite frankly she misses her dad. There...

The game plan

When I was about 20, I had it all figured out. I was going to move to New York after college, serve my time as an intern and then land on staff at a popular magazine because of course no one in the city had...

My Village

I heard somewhere that pretending to have it all together is unfair. It’s unfair because if someone is looking up to you, they will never get to where they think you are. I hope that I do not ever pretend that I have it all...

(Shoe) Shopping

I love to shop. When asked about what I do in my spare time, shopping always lands on that list. I, however, am a bargain shopper and I get a high from getting a great deal. It’s more than a hobby though; it’s a way...

Ask

A few days ago I was driving down the street with a friend of mine when I saw a neighbor walking her dog and immediately whipped the car over and ran down the street to catch up with her. I didn’t know her name and...

Male advantage

The disclaimer: I write this with much respect for men. I have two awesome brothers who happen to be men so I would not want to disrespect any man nor would I like to box them up and speak generally about them or discredit any...

Competing Priorities

A few weeks ago while driving through my favorite part of the Ohio Miami Valley I began to reminisce of a time when I wasn’t so single. Now I know that I should avoid this, but I began to get sleepy watching the sun set...

Impossible

Impossible is probably my least favorite word. Actually, impossible is my least favorite concept. I don’t ever like to believe that something is impossible. But I do wonder how it is possible to be an awesome parent and a successful dream chaser. Sunset reminds me...

Office Hours

My office hours are from 11 p.m. until 1 a.m. I don’t know what other twentysomethings are doing, maybe they’re drinking or living colorful love lives or sleeping or not sleeping because they are longing for something. Though I could find out on Facebook, I...

Cartwheels

I am watching the clock on my company-issued laptop. Work is slow today and I can’t help but think I am wasting time. In my mind, when the sun is shining and I’m not out in it, I’m wasting time. When I can’t mark something...
