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

I Don’t Do New Years Resolutions Anymore And Here’s Why

A year ago, I was working at a shitty office where my opinion on New Years Resolutions wasn't well received (because I dared to have my own thoughts on the matter instead of following the approved groupthink...oh the horrors! Someone who dares to think for herself!) It was a toxic environment that encouraged terrible stereotypes… Continue reading I Don’t Do New Years Resolutions Anymore And Here’s Why

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

The Magical Wedding Ring Of Invisibility

Prior to my current part--time delivery gig, the last time I had a job that involved driving around was back in my single days when I worked in outside sales. I always liked the adventure aspect of it because I'm the type who hates to be chained to a desk for too long. However, it… Continue reading The Magical Wedding Ring Of Invisibility

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

I Love The Holidays But They Stress Me Out Financially

I've always loved the holidays. I love cooking, baking, decorating, and especially our annual trip home to Cleveland for Christmas. The first time we traveled there together in 2016 was the first time my now-husband met my family and also the day he proposed to me, so now it's a tradition. As wonderful as it… Continue reading I Love The Holidays But They Stress Me Out Financially

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
