What Causes Writer’s Block?

Being Bipolar II aka chronic hypo manic has its positive points. I’ve never had any trouble writing.  Even when I've gone through episodes of depression, I would continusally produce work. I honestly never understood when people would talk about writers block, till now.

I have two books to finish that are almost done, and for some reason I can’t get myself to sit down and do the work that needs to be done. The...

Am I gonna get fired over “bitch” versus “beehatch?”

When or how do you know to keep your mouth shut. I’ve been through enough trouble in my job for standing up, speaking the truth, just being me.

Yesterday, I walked down the hall and one of my colleagues high fived me passing by and I high fived them back and said, “That’s right beehatch!”

Are you my Tinderella?

I had my first tinder date thing this past weekend and I think it is safe to say, I don’t think tinder dating is for me.

If you’ve read my blogs in the past I was in an unfaithful relationship. I was met with a partner that would have sex on and off with other women which was hurtful. But, when it came down to the betrayal and emotional damage it had, it was the...

The Rebirth of the Single Woman

This is not the first time this has happened. Sometimes my married friends like to escape the suburban lifestyle and make it Downtown to experience the urban single life. Maybe have a forbidden cigarette, too much wine and random acts of dancing. Sometimes they stay the night and the festivities keep on going.

Just let it go…You let it go!

Recently I have struggled with letting things go and I wonder what it would be like to just go with the flow in life, and let things go. I see other people are able to do it and it’s frustrating. The worst part is when you don’t let things go, you can obsess. Let me share an example:

Last week I went to the laundry mat to drop off a dress. When I went...
