Controlling Emotions

Controlling my own emotions has never been easy for me.  In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever been able to fully control them.  I’m a strong feeler, and things excite, hurt, anger, etc me easily.  I think this is pretty common for women.  It seems men are much better at controlling their emotions, or at…

Men and Veganism

My little blog received a little face lift today.   I had a hankering for change.  Maybe the change of seasons in all it’s pumpkin spice glory inspired her little make over.  Yes, my blog is a she — obviously.   My blog is smart, pretty, charming, and spunky, so she’s definitely female. There’s no need for…

Doctor, Doctor… Give me the News

  It’s Doctor Day!  For the past few months, I’ve spoke little to nothing about my anxiety. Why or why?  Because I haven’t felt anxious.  Back in April, I decided to go back on meds.  It was a really hard decision to make, but in the end, it was the right one.  It took a…

Firestorm

My view of the world is full of smoke and ashes.  The wildfires in BC have full cities evacuated, and over 40,000 of them have come to our city for refuge.  The air is thick with smoke, and everyone is feeling the stress of the situation.  I haven’t written in over a week because I’ve…

Smoke On The Water — AND Everywhere Else

The whole province is on fire, and we are living in the land of smoke and ash.  Thousands of people from cities all across British Columbia have been evacuated from their homes due to 100s of out of control wildfires.  High winds blow smoke and ash through the valley, and it’s near impossible to breathe…

F Bomb Tuesday

If I had a nickel for every minute of the day I feel anxious, I’d have a lot of fucking nickels.  It would be a pain in the ass to have that many nickels to roll.  I would roll them though.  I’d roll them and take them straight to the bank — and then I…

This is Why We Do it

It’s been awhile since I’ve reflected on my blog.  Why do I write?  Who do I write for? etc. etc.  I think my reasons and audience have changed a great deal since I started my blog a year ago.  Some people have very specific blogs.  They have purpose behind why they write and what they…

It Ain’t No Big Thing

“I went to a party last Saturday night, I didn’t get laid, I got in a fight ah ha… it ain’t no big thing… But I know what I like.  I know I like dancing with you…. Ohhhh…. kiss me once.  Kiss me twice…. Come on pretty baby kiss me deadly.” – Lita Ford This…

Change

  Something happens to a person’s ability to think when they are in the throws of lust.  I, for one, experience concentration disturbances, and obsessive thoughts of the person I’m in lust with.  A new relationship is filled with excitement, anxiety, and most of all sleep deprivation.  It’s a miracle I’ve been able to do…

Let Me Tell You A Story…

When I was a little girl, I dreamt of falling in love.  The fairytale kind filled with romance and butterflies.  At the age of 21, I was married to a nice man, but not the right man.  After the marriage ended, I had a string of terrible relationships that left me hurt and guarded.  My…
