F@%k Cancer!

62 years. Is this all we get? She was supposed to grow old and gray. Maybe even die peacefully in her sleep at age 102, after reaping the rewards of the years she saved for retirement, for our colleges. Damn, she even saved for the grandkids that life never meant to deny her; the children... Continue Reading →

The Introvert Experience

After a while being out and about with friends, road tripping and the like, it dawned on me that folks don't really understand the introvert experience as it pertains to the human condition.

Unprocrastination Weekend

Summer 2018. It all started with a need to clear out space in the garage for a DIY and it all spiralled from there. By the time we looked up, we were halfway through the never-ending to do list.

If a shoe is too tall and will cause temporary or permanent damage, regardless of the designer name or prestige, I won't wear it. If the skirt is too short, the cleavage... Continue Reading →

The Beauty of Our Scars

La Ignorancia es atrevida

Mucha gente no entiende que su punto de vista tiene *blindspots*. Llevo gran parte de mi vida disecando las contestaciones que me dan y las que doy y no puedo negar que la asimetria de informacion es monumental.
