TW; RAPE

I’m ready to talk about it. I want to talk about it. I want to climb out onto my roof and shout it into the sky so the entire city can hear it. I am a rape survivor. I was raped. Repeatedly. Over a course of years. By my husband. It was not my fault. I did not bring it on myself. It happened. It was real. My story is…

Beth Ditto's new line Beth Ditto's new line

I just needed to preach to y’all about the glory of this skirt. Beth Ditto be praised. I splurged with a bit of my tax return and bought the Lola skirt. It is truly the greatest item of clothing I’ve ever bought. It is perfect. It is comfortable, it makes my waist look small and my ass look fat, and it has POCKETS.

US expats in UK?

Has anyone from the US successfully moved to the UK?? I don’t have any UK family ties, nor am I married to a UK citizen. I am trying to get a work visa to move there, but my company’s London recruiter emailed me yesterday to ask if I would need visa sponsorship, and when I said yes, she said they would not be able to…

Sucky job sucks.

As some of you may know, I'm the training supervisor at a large hotel. Yesterday, I got called into my boss's office. I had told her that I'd like to speak with her, so I assumed we would talk about my thing and be done. I told her my plans to go back to school in the spring, and said that I would need to work part…

Work woes. Work woes.

The office has been falling apart lately, and tomorrow is the breaking point. I've been putting on a brave face for my employees, but every fiber of my being is saying to run. :-/

Going back to school... Going back to school...

You guys. I'm going to go back to school! I've been working since I was 18, and have decided to do a complete 180 and transfer to a part time work-at-home position (from management in a large convention hotel) and go back to school full time. I found a program to get both a bachelors of psychology and a masters of…

A Tale of Ungrateful Visitors A Tale of Ungrateful Visitors

Inspired by VivaciousVicious's post about weekend visitors, I thought I would tell you about my weekend. A few weeks ago, my cousin Becky called to ask if she, her boyfriend I have never met, and his two friends could stay at my apartment for a night on their way to a concert. Knowing that most of her friends are of…

Saying what you're not supposed to say - I can't stand my cancer patient mother

I have a confession to make. I cannot stand my mother.

Dallas? Liberal Jezzies in a conservative state?
