Procrastination + Self-flagellation = Insanity

I mastered a new form of procrastination.  Start on a project which inspires starting another, which inspires another and so on and so on.  Next thing I know; I am overwhelmed and close to a mental shutdown.  Step one; acknowledging my insanity and breaking the cycle.  This website was (in my mind) the original project. The definition of project (as follows): proj·ect noun /ˈpräˌjekt/ An individual or collaborative enterprise that […]

Mixtape – Keep It Movin’ (Graduation)

Around this time (every year), I contemplate going back to school.  I love learning. If I had discretionary income (along the lines of lottery winnings), I would be a professional student.  With that said, social media has made learning a lot easier. I was able to make the best  Lemon Blueberry Scones  (thanks to http://www.momontimeout.com) in celebration of the Royal Wedding, and “You Tube University” has reduced the repair costs […]

There comes a point when your own self-hatred gets on your last nerve.  It has prevented me […]

*****NOTE: THIS CONTAINS AN AVENGERS INFINITY WAR SPOILER – TO AVOID THIS GO DIRECTLY TO THE MIXTAPE****** The hubby created this mixtape  with Bill Cosby’s conviction heavily on his mind.  As I was pondering how to write about this (and considering if I actually wanted to), suddenly there was news about a campaign to #MuteRKelly.  Then, Kanye West decides to reveal that he and Donald Trump share dragon DNA and four […]

Mixtape – April 21st

I am angry with Prince.  There, I said it.  It is a visceral feeling that has not passed in the two years since his death.  The disease that claimed Michael and Whitney also demanded his heart.  What arrogance to think that their results would or could not happen to him. Yes, I realize addiction is a disease.  Who knows what led him down the Fentanyl path.   Some people are aware […]
