Don’t Do It Halfway

Do you know anyone like this?  I do.  I admire them.  Everyone I’ve met who loves life deeply exudes passion for…all the things.  A life filled with passion is a great thing. ‘Til next time, Jessica

How Do You Process Your Thoughts?

I tend to process complicated things out loud.  Whether those are emotions, concepts, plans, whatever, I need to talk it out.  Responses are generally not necessary because what pours out of my mouth is a confusions of ideas, speech, and thought.  Once I sift through the rubble, I have a cohesive…something. In this respect, I […]

I Can Relate

Every time I head out on a trip, I begin to get anxious unless I’ve packed a book for every day I’m going to be away.  I’m not talking comic books here.  These are novels.  They’re heavy.  They take up massive amounts of space.  There’s always a nagging feeling I’ve forgotten something unless I have […]

Retail Therapy

Oh, oniochalasia, I know you well.  Otherwise known as I’m-having-a-bad-day-I-need-pineapple-shoes.  Not always the best way of coping with the vagaries of life, but surprisingly effective. Life lesson – don’t use credit for retail therapy.  You require more retail therapy when the bill comes due! ‘Til next time, Jessica

Its early stages yet, but when I’m […]

Wordy Thursday

With Halloween just a couple of days away, I thought I’d confess one of my greatest fears.  Amanda Palmer refers to the “Fraud Police” in her book The Art of Asking.  You know, the people who will eventually figure out you have no idea what you’re doing and call you out for it…yeah, I can relate.

Goldilocks Had the Right Idea

                  This summer I’ve listened to a lot of Zac Brown Band (fine, I listen to them all year round, but especially summer).  Jekyll + Hyde is an awesome album, what  can I say?  A particular line from the song “Homegrown” sticks with me, and has since […]

Guilty As Charged

I like this word, hoppipolla.  It sounds fun popping from the lips.  Try it?  See!  Awesome! This is something I am usually guilty of.  Unless there’s somewhere I have to be where staying clean and dry is required, I’ll jump in the puddle.  I don’t require children to be present to encourage me either. My […]
