Talk that stuff now roll with it [and other ways to be responsible with your words]

I am a talker. I always have been. I used to talk so much that when I was younger that my mother would literally have to ask me to let her exercise in peace for 30 minutes and then promise the rest of the evening was mine to talk about whatever I wanted to. Sad right? … Continue reading Talk that stuff now roll with it [and other ways to be responsible with your words]

I Ain’t got No Worries [and other phrases that make me side eye]

Years ago I did a post on things that made me judge people and those things do still make me question folks. But sometimes it doesn't take a whole action to give me pause. Sometimes it's commonly used phrases and/or cliches that invoke the side-eyer deep within. Like, I ain't got no worries. A phrase made … Continue reading I Ain’t got No Worries [and other phrases that make me side eye]

The Metaphorical Thorn in My Side (aka Things That Grind My Gears)

If you've never heard the story of Paul and the thorn in his side, basically, in 2 Corinthians Paul, a devout follower and spreader of the Good News of Jesus, writes that in order to keep him humble in his missionary work he was given (by God presumably) a "thorn in his side". Not a … Continue reading The Metaphorical Thorn in My Side (aka Things That Grind My Gears)

Death to Social Media (The Great Search for Meaning in Twittersphere)

There seems to be a lot of emptiness around me. As I surf on the sea that is social media I find that people are searching for a lot. They fill their Instagrams and Twitters with pictures of all the stuff they do and great quotes they found through Google or Tumblr and yet I … Continue reading Death to Social Media (The Great Search for Meaning in Twittersphere)

On anti-twitter island (the happenings of my 21-dayfast)

You all: Hey Bri i'm so glad you have been keeping up with your blog and being consistent with your blog. Me: My bad... So I know I've been MIA from my blog and whatnot but before you give me a "didn't you say you would post regularly every month" talking-to, I had a good reason to go missing this … Continue reading On anti-twitter island (the happenings of my 21-dayfast)

Ignorance Is Bliss (and other adages I think are wack wack)

Oh Clichés! You know, those wonderful phrases that some person, who doesn't actually have a valid answer for your problem, offers up to give you some type of direction. Although they can be very well intentioned, after hearing "There's plenty more fish in the sea" after your latest breakup for the twentieth time I'm sure … Continue reading Ignorance Is Bliss (and other adages I think are wack wack)

Things That Are Not Awesome

I've been super sporadic with my blogging, I promise I'm going to do better. I now pledge to blog at least once month. If I have not posted something by the 15th of every month, feel free to tweet and facebook with angry, impatient messages. Not too angry, of course. These past couple of weeks … Continue reading Things That Are Not Awesome

This is the Recap (a few things I picked up over the past month)

Hello friends, followers, and people who stumbled on this page purely by accident! It's been a while since I've posted and I apologize for that. One of the big reasons for me being M.I.A. is due to the fact that I moved cross the country to Washington DC and have basically spent the past two … Continue reading This is the Recap (a few things I picked up over the past month)

They Got Bookoo People Outside [and other things I say and do because I’m NOLA-bred]

As most of you know I'm from New Orleans, Louisiana. One of the single greatest cities in existence...I'm not even exaggerating here. If you didn't know I was from NOLA well, now you do. Even though I can't imagine why you wouldn't know because I mention it a lot. Like a profuse amount actually...ANYWAYS. What … Continue reading They Got Bookoo People Outside [and other things I say and do because I’m NOLA-bred]

The Subtle Evil of Cambria Default Font {and other things I think exist just to be annoying}

I am not one to take things personally most days. Even when people are intentionally mean to me I usually brush off as "oh it's probably nothing personal." I honestly don't see the value in being super sensitive. It's just not in my bones. Besides most people are so busy doing their own thing that … Continue reading The Subtle Evil of Cambria Default Font {and other things I think exist just to be annoying}
