Have you ever had a job that totally and completely changed your life? No, I'm not talking about pursuing your passion, or changing the world, or even making a bunch of money. I mean a minimum-wage job, without which, you wouldn't be the person you are today? I have. I was a day camp counselor … Continue reading Cinderella’s Glass Slipper and Other Weird Games I Played at Work
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 2017 was... interesting, but I realized something in looking back on it when I jumped on the #bestnine trend on Instagram: Which of course makes me want to be sappy for just a minute. (These posts are supposed to be motivational, right?) In the spirit of #NewYearSameMe, it’s time to make some resolutions we’ll … Continue reading Wake Up Call #47
Good morning! Welcome to another edition of the wake up call, and another week of your life. Who had a good weekend?

I mentioned on Monday that I was in Madison, Wisconsin over the weekend with some of my favorite humans. Those humans were my girlfriends, and we were on our annual girls' trip. Rachel, Katy, and I drove up together Friday afternoon. We chatted, ate some snacks, and I spilled water all over myself when Katy … Continue reading We don’t need more friends!*

Then my friend Christine wrote a similar post-- which was fabulous, go … Continue reading To Be Opened April 16, 2002

Guest Writing Prompt: “Write about a recent conflict.”
By Becca @The Married Cat Lady
I send a text to my roommate: Haven’t heard from Jimmy still. I think he’s blowing me off. What. The. Fuck.
She replies right away: That’s so strange. Nothing?
I type with a vengeance. Not a word. Last night or today. This is unreal. My sentences can’t even exceed six words. I’m too pissed. I can’t believe this is happening.
Adriene, I’m so sorry. I don’t know what to say.
I put my phone down and step out onto the balcony of our apartment. I think the weather is mocking me. It’s beautiful out. Sunshine. Warmth. There’s even some little birds chirping.
How did this happen? I know we hit a little bump, but I thought we passed it. Why would he suggest a date today, and then just completely blow me off?

I started writing a book about two years ago… I wrote about sixty-five pages and then it petered out; I may come back to it eventually, but I bring it up because it started with my girlfriends—a lot of what I wrote was based on real experiences. I have THE best group of girlfriends—you may … Continue reading Our Gypsy Vacation
