Traditional Corporations Feel Threatened By The Rise Of Independent Contractors, And They Should

If you've read my blog before, you already know that I used to be in corporate America and I broke free from those chains last year to pursue my lifelong dream of self-employment. It's only a couple weeks away from the anniversary of that glorious day, so let's talk about why so many people are… Continue reading Traditional Corporations Feel Threatened By The Rise Of Independent Contractors, And They Should

First Time Making Homemade Ribs!

My husband and I have an agreement: if he picks up some random protein at the store, I'll cook it, even if it's something I've never made before. I like a good cooking adventure and I LOVE meat. So a couple days ago, he picked up a rack of ribs! I love ribs, but I've… Continue reading First Time Making Homemade Ribs!

Ruth’s Chris Steak House: The Proletariat Infiltrating The Bourgeois Of Cary

I love steak, especially ribeye. It's one of my favorite things in the world. I'm not the type of person who typically goes to steakhouses, however, and I have a good reason for that. I'm a pretty thrifty girl because I've always been far from wealthy, and I also love to cook (as you already… Continue reading Ruth’s Chris Steak House: The Proletariat Infiltrating The Bourgeois Of Cary

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

My Subconscious Congratulated Me On Getting Out Of An Abusive Relationship

I have really weird dreams sometimes, and they rarely make sense immediately upon waking up. I attribute my likelihood of having weird dreams to a few different possible sources: 1. My super fun anxiety 2. My penchance for cheap Franzia wine late at night 3. My overactive writer imagination 4. My weird ass life and… Continue reading My Subconscious Congratulated Me On Getting Out Of An Abusive Relationship

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
