In elementary school my teachers would always report to my mom and dad during parent teacher conferences, "She's a bright girl but she rushes through her work and makes careless mistakes." More than one of my bosses has listed "attention to detail" as a development area on my … Continue reading You Gonna Learn Today – Returning to Work (Part 3)
Student loan forbearance is totally a thing. Here's why it's not my thing.
I have a confession. I live in my car or at least you would think that I do if you've ever ridden in Silver Betty.

"A Holly Jolly Christmas" induces digestive pyrotechnics. "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" makes me want to end it all. I swear I am not a … Continue reading Last Christmas vs This Christmas
