Alice Sebold’s memoir, Lucky, is riveting, moving, terrifying and uplifting all at the same time. The subject matter of this book made it incredibly difficult to get through emotionally, however, I couldn’t stop turning the pages. I was encompassed by her seemingly triumphant yet blatantly torturous climb up from the rubble she was left in after her violent rape.
I was a little late on the bandwagon of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, but I did hop on. And it was quite a ride.
A brief synopsis: Elizabeth went through a terrible divorce, which she doesn’t divulge much about. It almost came across as if she woke up one morning crying in the bathroom and wanted a divorce. There is no backlog as to why this marriage was so miserable – but it laid the foundation for her journey around the world to find “a balance between worldly enjoyment and divine transcendence.”
This past weekend was San Francisco Pride 2010. It was my first Pride experience in San Francisco. It was amazing.
As listed on sfpride.org, “The mission of the San Francisco Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Celebration Committee is to educate the world, commemorate our heritage, celebrate our culture, and liberate our people.”
A vision board is typically a poster board on which you paste or collage images that you’ve torn out from various magazines. My physical vision board is a work in progress, but I thought I’d give you all a little insight.
So, I decided to try a little something new on the ol’ blog. I seem to have been talking a lot about relationships lately, and I thought it would be interesting to get a male perspective on the world of dating. However, I didn’t expect to get quite the response that I got. When I [...]
I know we’ve all seen the tabloids in action the past couple days. It’s the same story every time something like this “breaks.” The famous man who’s “happily” married with two children has a scandalous affair with some hot-shot socialite blah blah blah. I’m sick of it.
My guilty pleasure. No, now get your mind out of the gutter. Ok, well, not completely. HBO has stolen my heart again – and my Thursday nights. Hung is a riveting series on HBO that centers on a father of two teenagers who goes through a messy divorce, deals with a custody battle, and on [...]
So, I just went through an interesting experience. One that I’ve been through before, but this time was a little different. The guy from my Chivalry Lives! post has officially told me he “just wants to be friends.” Not gonna lie, I saw it coming – he went to Chicago to visit a “good friend” [...]
Attention: Spoilers ahead! (just in case you haven’t seen it) I watched “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” last night for about the fifth time. It’s a pretty funny flick, but after this viewing, I have determined there’s more to it than just crude humor. The romantic comedy stars Jason Segal and Kristen Bell. Bell’s character, Sarah, dumps [...]
So, I went on a date last night. I haven’t been on a real date in quite some time. You know, a real date – like when the guy actually puts some effort into planning some kind of outing for just the two of you. I know, seems outlandish, right?
I have worked in the restaurant industry for seven years. I have been a hostess, a waitress and a bartender. And I think I’ve pretty much seen it all.
We’ve all been there. And we’ve been on both sides of it. Why do people ask questions they really don’t want to know the answer to? And how do you answer questions you don’t necessarily want the other person to know the answer to?
