Review of “Not Really Gone” by Blaire Sharpe

One of the reasons I love reviewing books is that every once in a while I take a chance on something I never would've picked up on my own.  Memoirs aren't my usual thing.  But, I'm so glad I agreed to read this one, not only because most of it is set in my native... Continue Reading →

The Problem With Being Comfortable

There’s a downside to being encouraged too much as a child.  Growing up, I was always the Golden Child, although I think I was only eager to please because I found it so easy to please.  I could get by with little effort and even excel in some areas without trying.  I was always told...

How Do You End a Phase?

When does a phase become a rut? Miranda and I had jokingly made a New Year’s Resolution in 2009 to “turn this douche of a life around,” but August rolled around and we hadn’t made much progress – okay, no progress except to re-title 2009 “Douche Awareness Year.”  And then came 2010.  After living in...

“Marry Me, Hunt for Free”

One of the most insulting things you can say to a single person is “We just want you to be happy.” My mental response is always, “Huh, thanks. Until you just told me I wasn’t happy, I thought I was.” Granted, I understand most 30-something women probably do want to be married.  And it certainly... Continue Reading →
