How I’m ACTUALLY Doing… A Broke Girl’s Ramblings (Part 2 of 3)

Continued from Can’t Quite Explain It… A Broke Girl’s Ramblings (Part 1)

I’ve mentioned that I haven’t been blogging consistently lately because I’m busy and exhausted. That could not have been more true. But give or take a week or two ago the craziness simmered down for the most part. Though I did go to camp with the man for the weekend and bought a (new to me) car since then.

Can’t Quite Explain It… A Broke Girl’s Ramblings (Part 1 of 3)

I try to limit many things I would blog about, because many of the things I would have to say, and my comments on many matters are personal, private or could come across as negative, angry or depressing, or at worst flat out boring and tedious, and that is not the person I try to be socially, the type of things I want to be known for, nor is it the type of person I want to be known as.  Continue reading “Can’t Quite Explain It… A Broke Girl’s Ramblings (Part 1 of 3)”

Stop Telling Me I Need To Travel

180644_10150373635175254_3188581_nI am a huge proponent of the staycation and advocate strongly for living someplace you love and learning where you live.  Why bother?  Because you spend the majority of your waking hours and life there.  Why would you not want to?  There is always something new to be discovered, something beautiful to be found, something unique to do, a special tradition or culture in which to immerse yourself, and a history all it’s own just waiting to be discovered no matter where you live.

Tales From My Couch: Rainy Day Musings on Pop Culture and Blogging

Well, it’s raining today – of course.  So my eagerly anticipated departure back out on to the lake has been delayed a bit.  Not that like papyrus I will dissolve and disappear into the ether at the slightest touch of rain Continue reading “Tales From My Couch: Rainy Day Musings on Pop Culture and Blogging”

Do You Need Anything?

“Do you need anything?”  Not an unusual question to ask a friend when you’re running into the corner store, or to ask of your coworkers when you pop out for a quick visit to the drug mart across the street during a break.  However, insofar as this goes, I have developed a bit of a peculiar habit.  You see, I always ask, “Do you need anything?”, and then follow up whatever the reply with, “Do you want anything?”.  I found myself doing this very thing just last week, by having it pointed out to me by a friend, and have since been thinking over need vs. want.  A clichéd topic for sure, but a topic that has become cliché for a reason, and is always worth a mention.

Thoughts on Common Sense – Why Are We So Dismissive Of it?

We all know what common sense is, right?  It’s something that’s been on my mind quite a bit as of late.  I’ve had conversations about it, I’ve read about it, I’ve perhaps alluded to it in previous posts.

Two points I’ve come across on the topic have struck me harder than most.  Continue reading “Thoughts on Common Sense – Why Are We So Dismissive Of it?”
