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…

Passion —Am I Doing This Right?

Passionate. I’ve generally regarded it as an empty adjective used for resumes. Nobody is truly “passionate” about Microsoft Excel. Nobody. Yet we are (hopefully) all passionate about something. In my humble opinion, I think we are taught in this capitalistic society of ours that the things we are passionate about, aren’t supposed to be the…
