Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding My rating: 3 of 5 stars I enjoyed this, enough but it wasn’t the same. Also, throughout the whole thing I can’t help but wish we could have gotten some books about Bridget dealing with married life and raising kids with Mark. I feel like we went through Read More →

I’m so lucky to have the option to see a Wellness Coach at work for free. She is not a nutritionist, she just helps me organize my health goals, sort of like a therapist but for your health. I want to keep track of all of this for others that might be interested and for Read More →

I still care and I’m not going to pretend otherwise. Am I willing to get pulled back into drama and feeling bad about myself? No. But just because someone isn’t in your life doesn’t mean you don’t miss them. I don’t need to pretend to be tough and prove to everyone I’ve moved on when Read More →

I’ve never really cared about how many friends I have on Facebook or how many followers I have on twitter. In fact I’d rather have fewer friends in general and have those be really quality people in my life. However, it’s pretty cool that my British Telly Tumbr has passed 20,000 followers!

I’m always working on forgiving people in my life. My father is a big one for me, though he’s more about coming to terms with that he’ll never change and that despite everything I do love him. I have an old friend who I still have close mutual friends with that I feel I’ve come Read More →
