Chatter – Ep. 21 – Mar. 5, 2016

ADVENTURE. I’ve discovered, over the course of my varied and often turbulent dating life, that learning and growing together is imperative to building a healthy and long-lasting relationship. But this isn’t just about romantic love. The need for adventure and shared experiences extends to other types of relationships, and that has never been more apparent […]

RELATIONSHIPS. Murky waters, these things we navigate on our quest for love or fulfillment. But I’m of the mind that the most successful relationships are between two whole people, people who know and love themselves because that’s how you can best give to and receive love from other people. Only when you are truly who […]

CREATIVITY. My dad says that there’s a solution to everything, you just need to be creative. He’s right. I don’t just mean you should be creative and paint or write or draw or sculpt. I mean, be creative in solving problems. Think of ways to get what you want/need/desire/require, because there’s a way – even […]

FAVORITE THINGS. This weekend is full of some of my favorite things: nerdy events, alcohol, Girl Scout cookies, exceptional company, and…silence. I am currently sitting on a hotel bed, writing¬†a document for work, with no human interaction. It’s the little things – like being given the chance to just exist without having to be “on” […]

KINDNESS. I’ve been meeting a lot of people for work lately, and the common thread that runs through each of these conversations is kindness…or the lack thereof. Some of the people I meet rise above their situations, some need a little help. But all of them could’ve benefited from having the support of just one […]

COMPROMISE. Successful human interaction on any level – romantic, platonic, or otherwise – requires a certain amount of compromise and sacrifice. But there are limits. There need to be limits. You can’t give up everything you are and everything you want just to please someone else. So that’s what today’s podcast is all about: knowing […]

Chatter – Ep. 15 – Jan. 23, 2015

Okay, no heading today. This episode is just two girls talking about men, drinking, and food. We talk about food a lot because…well, let’s be honest, two cis girls talking about the men they’ve known is far less interesting than two nerdy humans talking about food. And beyond all else, we are very nerdy humans […]

TALK DOWN THE CRAZY. And don’t let it infect the way you interact with – and react to – the world around you. Sometimes, y’all, there isn’t a nefarious plot to break your spirit. Sometimes people are just really busy. So before you fly off the handle at your bff/beau/mom/sister for ignoring you for six […]

FRIENDS! Friends can make things better, and they can make things worse. Let the friends who love you and make your world brighter be the light you need to balance things out when you find yourself sitting in darkness. This year, I am going to remember a few things: 1) Be grateful for the people […]

FAMILY. Man, that’s a loaded word right there, isn’t it? Some of us are born with family who we love and who love us. Some of us are closer to those with whom we purposefully surround ourselves. Some of us are lucky enough to have both biological family and friends who have become family. And […]
