Pep Boys is the Worst Place to Take Your Car!

Pep Boys is the Worst Place to Take Your Car!

On My Mind 16

Today has to be one of the shittiest days I’ve had in a long time. I had to go against what wiser people said and in the end, I basically got ripped off and suffered a whole lot of emotional and mental stress. My open letter to Pep Boys: Hello, I just wanted to let you know about my experience regarding your company’s service to me and my car on… Read more »

What If You Stunk?!

What If You Stunk?!

On My Mind 8

It was the dead of summer. The heat is on the rise. I’m in a room with like 20 people in it. I walk around without a problem, until I get to this one area where I caught a major whiff of some SERIOUS body odor. Whoa! And this was coming from a girl. A girl who actually had people around her talking to her. Don’t get me wrong, I… Read more »

Can’t Stand the Silence

Can’t Stand the Silence

On My Mind 2

You know one thing I’ve realized over the years? I can’t stand the silence. Sure, being in a quiet environment is nice every now and then, but going days on end w/o any noise, it starts to get to you. It could be my conditioning from having children, who you know are anything but quiet, and when there is silence you know they’re up to something. But yeah, being back… Read more »

My TBR Pile Challenge Update for July

My TBR Pile Challenge Update for July

Books, On My Mind 7

I’d say July was a much better month for me, reading-wise. I got through a decent amount of both review books and my own books and I FINALLY finished Graceling. Whew! It may be because I was on the tail end of that reading slump, but it took quite a bit of effort for me to get through that. Not that there’s anything wrong with the book, but I don’t… Read more »

Flowers and Jewelry

Flowers and Jewelry

On My Mind 5

Every girl loves receiving flowers and jewelry, especially from a significant other, right? Well, what if I were to say, I couldn’t care less about those things? In case you didn’t know, I’ve always been a rather simple person in some aspects of life, and this area would be one of them. I’ve never cared for flowers. Sure, they’re pretty to look at. Some may even smell…decent (I don’t really care… Read more »

Pregnancy Changes You…Or At Least, It Changed Me

Pregnancy Changes You…Or At Least, It Changed Me

On My Mind, Pregnancy 11

For those of you who don’t know, I’m a creature of habit. I like my daily routines and anything slightly outside the norm, although I do adapt, can cause me to feel uncomfortable and makes me long to get things back on track. I’m even more habitual when it comes to food, often eating the same thing for lunch or dinner for like a month and finding the dish tastes… Read more »

Text or Talk?

Text or Talk?

On My Mind 7

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been much of a talker on the phone. For some reason, even with family or close friends, I never felt comfortable having conversations on the phone. Sure, I can carry on endless conversations in person, but when there are those lulls and silences when you’re on the phone, it gets me all anxious. Plus, I never know when to really END a… Read more »

I’ve Come To Terms

I’ve Come To Terms

On My Mind 2

Over the years I’ve slowly come to terms with the facts of my life: I won’t win the lotto in this lifetime I won’t be famous or even popular for that matter I won’t be rich since my school loans will be the death of me I won’t be skinny because I’m too lazy to work out and I love cheeseburgers I won’t ever be an artist or musician because… Read more »

Change the Focus, Again!

Change the Focus, Again!

On My Mind 2

Well, I’ve done it yet again. I keep trying to broaden what I write about on this blog, but over the last year or so I’ve slowly turned into a book blog. Not cool! I mean, yes, it’s cool because I love books with a passion and many great things have happened because I got into books, but that’s not what this blog is about! This blog is about me… Read more »

Dude, I’m 28!

Dude, I’m 28!

On My Mind 2

Another year older! Sigh… Let us reflect on the last year of my life: 1. My memory is so bad nowadays, I have no idea what I did for my birthday last year. I’m pretty sure I was still in MI at the time, which means it probably was just another boring day for me. 2. I got to meet and hang out my favorite author of all time, Jennifer… Read more »
