If I Acted Like My Dog Crackers, I’d Get My Ass Kicked All The Time

My little rat terrier mix Crackers has a serious Napoleon complex. He’s only 17 lbs, less than a third the size of my other dog, Miles. Because of his size (or lack of it), he has a very defensive attitude and acts like an asshole sometimes (an ADOWABLE asshole, but an asshole nonetheless). While Miles… Continue reading If I Acted Like My Dog Crackers, I’d Get My Ass Kicked All The Time

My Green Smoothie Habit Makes Me Look Like A Health Nut But It’s Really A Lazy Girl Life Hack

I never thought I’d be the type to blend up green smoothies full of spinach and kale, but I got a Ninja blender as a wedding gift last year and decided to try it. I discovered that replacing a meal a day with a smoothie was actually a great way to lose a few pounds… Continue reading My Green Smoothie Habit Makes Me Look Like A Health Nut But It’s Really A Lazy Girl Life Hack

Marriage Is The Ultimate Freedom, Not A Ball And Chain

A lot of people think marriage is constricting and it takes away your freedom, but I disagree. My single life wasn’t completely terrible, but it didn’t really feel like freedom. The only thing you're not necessarily free to do after marriage is sleep around with random people, and I was never really into that anyway.… Continue reading Marriage Is The Ultimate Freedom, Not A Ball And Chain

I Always Have Random Bruises But No, My Husband Does NOT Beat Me

I’ve always bruised pretty easily. One time when I was in the 6th grade, my science teacher Mr. Lutz chose me for a demonstration (I don’t remember of what exactly) and punched me in the arm lightly. The whole class was shocked that it actually left a bruise. I was more upset about being put… Continue reading I Always Have Random Bruises But No, My Husband Does NOT Beat Me

FAFSA: Making Up Excuses To Deny Student Aid Since 1965

I’m about to age myself here, but it’s been exactly 16 years since I graduated from high school and began taking classes at Kent State University (yes, THE Kent State University...famous for the 1970 National Guard shootings). I know, I look just a bit younger than 34, right? Not to brag, but I’ve been carded… Continue reading FAFSA: Making Up Excuses To Deny Student Aid Since 1965

Feeding Dogs A Raw Diet Is Unrealistic

I’m a dog mom, so naturally I get a ton of ads on Facebook about dog-related topics and products. Recently, I’ve been seeing a lot of ads and articles about people who feed their dogs raw food instead of the traditional kibble, either making it themselves or buying it from specialty companies. I was curious… Continue reading Feeding Dogs A Raw Diet Is Unrealistic

Getting Out Of Corporate America Helped Me Kick My Caffeine Addiction

I spent several years hustling in corporate America when I was single. It was all about getting money and getting ahead at any cost. I was in sales, and I was killing it. No matter what I was selling, I was one of the top salespeople. I won awards, bonuses, and lots of respect, but… Continue reading Getting Out Of Corporate America Helped Me Kick My Caffeine Addiction
