Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Overwhelmed by Social Media

I happened to be overwhelmed by my work. Social media is a hobby for me but it’s always my profession, regardless of how much money I make at it. So it’s a choice but not in a normal sense of deciding whether or not I want to do it. I feel like I’m doing some […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Haven’t We Met Before?

Life is an experience, isn’t it? In a week, I’ve started to normalize. I have internet (thank God). I have a refrigerator and a washer and dryer. We still need the microwave but haven’t really missed it that much. And I’ve gotten enough unpacking done that it’s starting to feel good to go out and […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: The Internet is my constant

I waffled about writing a post for today. I just moved (yes, it FINALLY happened). I’m sick. And I have no internet. But I decided I wanted get out and see the community and see if there really was a Starbucks with internet close by. And I was in luck! Today’s Writing Prompt: How has […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: The Story of a Man

So many things on my mind tonight. When I sit down to write my post for next Sunday, I will officially be living in Maryland. I still don’t see how it’s all going to get done especially with me fielding some sort of upper respiratory ailment and lower back pain. But it will get done […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Rearranging My Life

The house has officially sold. It’s a done deal. We closed on Friday and officially turned the deed over to someone else. But we haven’t moved yet. We’re renting our own house for the next 2 weeks. It feels a little weird because it doesn’t feel like someone else’s house. But at least the first […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Stop the Merry Go Round!

I usually write my post on Saturday night – usually late at night – and publish it shortly before I nod off to sleep. These days, I schedule it to post at 12:01am eastern time. Technically, it’s still Saturday for my West Coast friends but it’s already halfway through Sunday for my South Pacific friends […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Baking bread for The Hunger Games

Today is a weird topic for me. I mean, it’s not weird for ME but it might be for you. Again, it’s a good time to remind you that the writing prompts are OPTIONAL. I added them because some people wanted to participate but ended up spending 5 minutes writing about what they should be […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Hello, Anxiety. I’ve been expecting you.

I started this meme as a way to get your writing juices flowing. I used to do this exercise in college and we would freewrite for 15 minutes. But back then, we did it with pen and paper and the amount we could write in 15 minutes is about the same as I can type […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: I don’t wanna…

Call it whining. Call it ranting. Call it first world problems. I have perspective but sometimes there are things you just don’t want to do. Maybe you’re tired or you need a break or you’d rather spend your hard-earned money elsewhere. But there’s got to be something you don’t want to do. I’m full of […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Things I Can’t Say

Before you get your knickers in a twist, I know that there is a blog out there called Things I Can’t Say. It’s written by fellow Carolina girl, Shell (@shellthings) and I think she is an AMAZING writer. But her title was too good not to steal, or borrow, or imitate. It is the best […]

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Is Your Heart Where You Live?

What a difference a week makes… Last Saturday, I wrote my stream of consciousness post in NYC at the airport still reeling from the fact that I was six rows away from Meryl Streep and Hillary Clinton. I was still in awe over the fact that I met Debra Winger and Ingrid Michaelson at a […]
