No Sir… I Will Not Send You A Picture

pictures online dating

When I created my online dating profile I spent a lot of time curating the best photos of myself. I made sure I had some that showed my smile and dimples. Another with me out with friends to prove I had a life. And most importantly I made sure to include a full body picture. Yet somehow all my work was in vain. Every time I begin a conversation with a potential suitor I get asked to send them pictures. No sir… I will not send you a picture. Did you not see the photos on my profile? Between my profile and Facebook I already have enough pictures floating around the inter-webs. These photos have each been filtered and gone through the full approval process. You do know if I was to send you one I’m just going to send you copies of those photos? Unless, you want the crazy bedhead Snapchats I send Read More …

2015 Recap

2015 photo

DIYDIYAs we’re nearing the last few mins of 2015 I thought it may be fun to recap some of the highlights  and lessons I learned during this past year. I must say 2015 wasn’t necessarily the most eventful year. There were no big promotions, new boyfriends or life changing moments, but that doesn’t mean it was a complete bore. Let’s start with work adventures: Work: Let’s just say my job is never boring. For those of you who don’t know what I do, I do online reputation management for a tech company. This means I carefully craft responses on behave of the brand to super angry customers. In doing that I can proudly say that if I’ve learned anything this year it would be patience. Especially, when people try it and lord have people “TRIIIIIIIIED IT” (in my Tamar Braxton voice). All in all I learned the key to patience is simply Read More …

My Psychic Told Me I Should Get Back To Blogging

For my birthday I wanted to try something new and different so I chose to get my palm read. My expectations were extremely low. I was expecting to hear her say that I would get a promotion tomorrow, marry a millionaire and a bunch of other crazy tales, instead my psychic told me I should get back to blogging. It took me completely by surprise when she told me that I need to get back to writing. I was kind of shocked that she would know that I write. It’s not often that I consider myself a writer in the first place. In my mind true writers have so much to say and don’t deal with the extreme block that I face. I admit I had great expectations for this blog I have so much I want to share but honestly I’m scared. I’ve never been a very open person and I’m not sure Read More …

2015 Will Not Be In Vain


This year is coming to an end and I feel like a have accomplished nothing. For the most part all I do  is eat, sleep, work, watch HGTV…then repeat. I’m pretty sure way back in January I made long list of resolutions and things I wanted to accomplish for 2015. But in true Trice fashion I abandoned those somewhere around February 1st. Well I will not let 2015 be in vain. I have 3 1/2 months remaining and I sure I can still accomplish something on my list. First things first…. let me file out where I put said list…   ( 10 mins later) Found It! Resolutions for 2015 Save Money See the way my bank account and wallet are setup, saving money wasn’t really included in the terms and conditions. So this is going to be a tough one for me but I’ll give it a try. Lord Read More …

Good For Them! (I Don’t Care…)

good for them

(Conversations with my mother) Mom: Hi! Did you hear (random kid I went to school with) got a job at (random awesome place with high paying salary)? Me: Really? That’s great. Mom: Yeah! Did you see on Facebook that (random cousin I don’t talk to who recently got divorced) is engaged? Me: Oh really. Mom: Also (random girl who goes to her church that knows the third cousin of someone I know) just had a baby. She’s so cute! Me: Good for them! (I dont care..)   Maybe it comes with age. Maybe I missed the memo and this is the type of conversation every twenty-something around the world is having with their parents.  Call me selfish, but I have my own life to worry about.The last thing I want to hear about is how Suzy Q is on husband number 2 and I can’t even get a 2nd date. Or how Read More …

Post Grad Activities

post grad

Like a good college alumnae I went to homecoming this year. In true late bloomer fashion and not-so surprisingly, this was my first time showing my face at a post graduate activity. Being away from Nashville for the last 4 1/2 years, I was just never dedicated enough or had enough money to travel for these types of events. But this year I put on red and blue grabbed my foam paw and went to homecoming to cheer on my alma mater’s basketball team!   I have to say being back on campus was a strange experience. So many things have changed yet some things were eerily exactly the same. This time instead of sitting in the student section I found myself on the opposite side of the arena. Instead standing the whole game behind Fratty McFratster, I was sitting behind my first year seminar teacher. The difference between the two Read More …

That Time I Decided To Go Be Social Instead of Live Tweeting Scandal


I’m a loyal Scandal viewer.  I rarely miss an episode. Like several other Americans between the ages of 18-49 my Thursday nights are usually booked. I have a long standing appointment with the couch, my phone, and TV. You see live tweeting Scandal is one of the highlights of my week. It’s honestly probably one of my most social interactions these days. When you think about it, that’s actually kind of sad. That’s why when I had the opportunity to go be social with real live people, who I could actually touch, it was an offer I had had to think longer and harder about. Surprising to both me and my roommate, I actually decided to skip Scandal. Peep our hilarious (at least to me) conversation we had when I made that decision.

Where I Am vs Where I Thought I Would Be

then vs now

As a kid reaching age 27 seemed like light-years away. I had all these ideas on what being 27 would be like. I can remember playing with my imaginary friends (#onlychildproblems) pretending to be a grown up who was slowing approaching 30. At the time, I thought this age would be magical. And honestly I must say its really not THAT bad, but its far from what I imagined. You see 10 year old me thought: I’d be a famous singer Reality: I work for an insurance company   I’d be married Reality: Not even close   I’d have 2 kids Reality: (see above)   I’d own a 2 story home Reality: I live in a house (Does that count?)   I’d live in Florida (Don’t judge me, I wanted to live close to the Backstreet Boys and Disney World) Reality: I live in Tennessee (PS You couldn’t pay me to Read More …

Pretending to Be a Grown-Up Made Me a Bad Blogger

bad blogger

First, let me say I’m sorry. I have taken quite a long hiatus from this blog. Honestly, life just got in the way. No one ever told me that once I have a legitimate job I would never do anything besides work, eat, sleep, and pay bills. Seriously, these last 6-ish months pretending to be a grown up made me a bad blogger. Not only did I miss my 1 year anniversary, I also missed my readers. Though there may only be a few of y’all- you kept me encouraged to keep going. Sorry I abandoned you… but I’m here now! So let’s play catch up for a moment: I moved to Nashville I started a new job I love it but I work close to 50+ hours a week I still don’t have a social life I’m even closer to 30 As you see not much has changed. But Read More …

The Fear of Growing Up

Fear of growing up

For the past few years I’ve been longing to reach new milestones. To me, reaching these new chapters would mean that I was growing up. I would finally be growing into an adult. I dreamed about getting an awesome job, moving out of my parents house, and becoming completely independent. In my mind, once I achieved these goals and entered into this new chapter of life, I would feel this overwhelming joy and I would be happy. In just a few days, I will be starting that awesome job, moving out of my parents house, and starting my journey of being an independent adult. Becoming an adult means I have no choice but to take risk. I have no choice but to independently make life changing decisions on my own. Although I know my parents will still support me, it is now all up to me to take care of Read More …
