Keeping It Creative –Am I Doing This Right?

It’s not a secret: I like words. I love writing. I am a writer. I pay my bills by putting words on a screen and I am never not grateful for that. But, sometimes, I wish I had a little creativity leftover by the end of the day to work on things I’m more passionate…

Goodbye, Jane the Virgin —Am I Doing This Right?

I’m less than two hours away from getting emotionally wrecked. And it’s all Jennie Snyder-Urman’s fault. She is the showrunner of Jane the Virgin, which is officially coming to an end tonight. I’ve loved a lot of shows. But very few have anchored me the way Jane the Virgin has for these past five seasons….

Ghosted— Am I Doing This Right?

Ya girl got ghosted. And fun fact: it sucks. Honestly, though, I think being mercilessly ghosted is a twenty-something rite of passage. So I can check that off the list. I should also make it clear; I have a very generous definition of ghosting. If we have a bad first (or second) date, I don’t…

I’m Baaaaaack. — Am I Doing This Right?

Hi party peeps. I’m officially back from my blogging hiatus. Although, I suppose I shouldn’t say “official.” I don’t know if I’m back to weekly blogging, or if it’ll be more often or less frequent. What I do know is that my debit card was just charged for this domain name, so here I am….

Lessons Learned —Am I Doing This Right?

Hey, y’all; it’s been a minute. One of my goals for 2019 was to blog every single week. But I failed and that’s okay. I was having a few weeks that were ROUGH in terms of my mental health. So I cut my hair (obvs) and didn’t blog. I was in a rut and I…

The Year of WTF —Am I Doing This Right?

The job search has gotten me down. Like way down. Like I don’t know if I want to cry or throw up, down. Currently, I’m doing neither. I’m just trying to avoid my emotions and answer the one question I can’t get out of my mind: “what the fuck?” Luckily, I know a lot of…

I’m Sick —Am I Doing This Right?

Hi! I know I promised a blog post every week. But today I’ve been sick and gross and too congested to think clearly. But I thought I’d give you a teaser of what to expect next week: my favorite things about being a Vegas local. What do you think should be on my list? Let…

Hot Dogs (Yes, Hot Dogs) —Am I Doing This Right?

I often wonder how many miles I’ve clocked on highways. When I was a baby my dad lived 100 miles away, taking care of his cancer-ridden father. My mom and her sisters loved a good family road trip. I went to college just far enough way to be out of state, but not so far…

The Mom Method— Am I Doing This Right?

About this time last year, I was in my best friend’s car, rolling down the highway singing along to Fall Out Boy’s greatest hits. Earlier this week, I got to do the same thing. It felt… cozy. Can a big ass Chevy Impala even be cozy? I felt like the secure, confident collegiate version of…
