You Gotta Get A Little Mud On The Tires

I'm a born and raised country girl and I used to go muddin' all the time back when I lived in Ohio. In the years since I traded in NE Ohio for Cary, NC and my trucks/Jeeps for a fuel-efficient Kia, I've really missed my old life and hobbies. So, when I accidentally got my… Continue reading You Gotta Get A Little Mud On The Tires

TV Shows And Movies Glamorize Drunk Driving Way Too Much

You already know what I'm talking about. So many TV shows and movies show characters drinking at a party, going to a bar after the party, and still somehow driving home afterwards. SHOT SHOT SHOT SHOT SHOT SHOT! It's all a big joke, and it's portrayed as being both fun and funny. In reality, there's… Continue reading TV Shows And Movies Glamorize Drunk Driving Way Too Much

Winter Driving And Corporate America: A PSA

I was born and raised in NE Ohio, so I know all the tricks and techniques to driving in snow. However, I'm also smart enough to know that there are absolutely no techniques to driving on ice, and I'm not one of those cocky Northerners who claims to have such an unrealistic talent. I don't… Continue reading Winter Driving And Corporate America: A PSA

Cold Weather, Driving Adventures And Christmas Lights

It's been pretty insanely cold here in NC this week. I mean, insanely cold for NC. It got down to the 20's! Where I'm from in NE Ohio, that's still cold but pretty normal. Down here, it's somewhat apocalyptic. I was scheduled to work the dinner shift last night for the local restaurant delivery service,… Continue reading Cold Weather, Driving Adventures And Christmas Lights

Dear Sales: We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together

Just to clarify, I do not own those lyrics. Obviously I borrowed them from Taylor Swift. Sales was a great career choice for me 5 1/2 years ago when I first moved to North Carolina and I was newly single after getting out of a 9-year abusive relationship. I had plenty of renewed energy, a… Continue reading Dear Sales: We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together

Food Delivery: It’s Not Just For College Kids Anymore

If you read my blog regularly, you already know that I prefer to work an entire pile of 10-99 contract jobs rather than being stuck in one soul-sucking corporate 9-5. Unfortunately, contract work can be fickle and sometimes contracts fall through at inopportune times, making me regroup and find another revenue stream quickly. This happened… Continue reading Food Delivery: It’s Not Just For College Kids Anymore

Even If I’m Rich Someday, I’ll Never Be A Pretentious Money-Waster

Some people rate their worth and quality of life on how much stuff they have and how expensive their stuff is. I am not one of those people, and I think it’s silly to blow money on expensive things to impress people or give them the impression that you’re better than them. I’ve known a… Continue reading Even If I’m Rich Someday, I’ll Never Be A Pretentious Money-Waster
