Two Truths & A Lie-Book Tag

I haven’t participate in any kind of awards or challenges for a while, but this one sounded fun, so thank you Aaron for tagging me.

How to Participate

  • Create a post with your two bookish truths and one bookish lie—but be sure to keep it a secret so your readers can guess!
  • Reveal the lie in a spoiler at the bottom of your post.
  • Tag 8 friends to play along.
  • Link back to the original post so I can see all your secrets!

Somebody Likes Me

So, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve stopped participating in blogging awards. I love getting nominated and receiving recognition, but I feel like a lot of them, especially the ones you see pretty regularly, have lost their charm due to their high circulation.

So on that note… Continue reading

The Calling of the Cats

How did catcalling become a thing and why on earth is it called that!?

It must have originated during the time of cavemen because only then would a grunt be considered a come-on. Think about it… One of the most used catcalls is a simple, ‘Hey!’- one syllable. You know what else is one syllable…? ‘Ugh.’ Sure, the physical gestures have evolved to consist of a nod of the head and/or a wink and in worse cases, a thrust of some sort, but can any man in today’s society claim to have had any type of success with a woman in this way?

I Made a Boo-Boo

We all have those stories of times in our lives where we’re surprised we didn’t die from embarrassment. You know the type… like the dream where you’re making a speech in front of a large audience of your peers and you look down and you’re standing in your underwear…

Well this story isn’t as tragic, but it was traumatic non-the-less. Continue reading

A Letter II

Since my Letter to my Ex was so therapeutic for me, I decided to write a similar letter to my ex best friend…

You were the nerdy trumpet player who wore glasses and had braces, but some how rocked it. You were the first person in our drivers ed class to get your license, but asked me questions when you didn’t know the answers. You told me I was the girl that all the other girls were jealous of. You were told to hate me, but we became fast friends instead. You played volleyball and convinced me to join the team. You rode horses and invited me to the barn any chance we got. We went to prom together. We graduated high school together and ended up at the same university where we received the same degree.  Continue reading

This Just In…

Just kidding. This isn’t breaking news. I’ve been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award twice in the last week; one from my girl Quinn over at When Do I Get the Manual? and one from Jade at Jaded Mine Fields. Since I’ve been accepting awards left, right, and center, I’m going to combine these two nominations into one post. And because I’ve completed this award a while ago, I’m going to use my same answers, cause, ya know, they haven’t changed any. Continue reading

I’m Not an Addict… You’re an Addict…

Is there something in the water? I mean, I know it’s awards season with the Emmy’s, the Grammys, the Little Lambies, and the Ham Sammies, but this is getting a little out of hand… But not enough to keep me from posting another award nomination. 😛

The always wonderful Nick over at Nick’s Notions has nominated me for an award I have yet to receive. Now, I don’t know what Nick was trying to say with this Blog-aholic Award, but… well… okay, maybe I do have a problem. That’s the first step, right? Admitting you have a problem…? Continue reading

Memories I Share With My Ex

When you are in a relationship with someone for some time, you are going to create lasting memories together, but what happens to those memories when the relationship is no more? They still exist, but how are we supposed to remember them: with feelings of fondness, indifference, spite…? Is there a rule? Continue reading

Versatile Blogger Award

I don’t know if you guys and gals have noticed, but I have moved on from telling My Story of my horrific past to sharing my thoughts and feelings on certain topics. For me, as the writer, it’s refreshing. Don’t get me wrong; I started this blog specifically to share my story with people; to help, to inform, to move on… but I like this change in material and am interested to see where it takes me.  Continue reading

Valentine’s Day [of Controversy]

As a hopeless romantic, I like the idea behind Valentine’s Day; one day of the year when lovers express their affection for one another by showering each other with gifts and expressing their adoration with kind gestures. What’s not to like!? But, this holiday is one full of controversy. Many believe that this day was created by so-called ‘greeting card’ companies, dubbing it a Hallmark Holiday; claiming that this day is only recognized as a way to generate business, and I say to those people… Who the fuck cares!?
