Today is my birthday. But, this year has been cancelled, so I'm staying the same age until next year - unless that gets cancelled too.
Dallas is supposed to be opening businesses up this Friday, at 25% capacity. I don't know what the future is going to look like or when things will get back to "normal". But we've all been in this thing for a while now and have likely developed new daily routines. Sometimes these are healthy, sometimes … Continue reading My Quarantine Routine, Or I What I Try Anyway
It's been a long while since I've written a blog post on here. Not that I've forgotten about it, or even that I have moved away from Dallas...at least not physically. My hiatus was mostly due to burnout from being on the computer all day at a job I hated. The last thing I wanted … Continue reading You Thought I was Gone?
Last week I was walking in the park by where I live in an effort to enjoy the nice spring weather when suddenly I collided with an older woman walking her dog. she apologized (as her dog had cut me off) and explained that she walks to "clear out the mental cobwebs–and I don't think … Continue reading Monday Mantra: No Mental Cobwebs

I've done things like yoga, running, and various fad boutique fitness centers to try and focus my energy and calm my nerves, but those activities always felt like more of a chore for me than as a way to gain strength and peace. On top … Continue reading I Stopped Doing Yoga And Started Doing More Of This
I love going to Twilite Lounge on Thursday nights for Good Luck Karaoke. So this morning I thought I’d do a throwback post to a couple of weeks ago when the guys' theme for the night was Kiss on Vacation. This has to be the most fun and entertaining karaoke in Dallas! You definitely need … Continue reading Throwback: Good Luck Karaoke at Twilite Lounge
Today marks the second year of being alive for my favorite dog in Dallas, my mini poodle, Pierre! He was recently groomed up nice and short to keep him cool during these "dog days" of summer. Even though I had to work most of the day, Pierre got to go for a long walk, take a … Continue reading Happy Birthday Pierre!
There are three dog parks in walking distance of my apartment. My dog, Pierre, like to frequent all of them when the weather is nice. Since spring is slowly starting to shine its face upon our city, Pierre and I have been taking more walks. Our latest adventure found us at the Deep Ellum Bark Park … Continue reading Deep Ellum Bark Park
