Wordy Bitch

Ok, so I should be doing homework right now. However, I'm taking a Business Communications class and the goal is to be clear and concise. Clear.... and concise. Clear. Concise.

Pictured: Me being clear and concise
I don't know how to do this. I'm neither of those things. I'm more like explain to you for ten minutes straight while veering off into other stories and subjects. I'm more like deep deep details in my attempt to be clearing all while making it more confusing. I'm more like instead of giving you direct instructions, give you a story about the first time I did it or my most successful time and hopefully, you'll get what you need out of it. I'm more like if you ask me a question, no matter how simple it is, I stare at you confused for 3 whole minutes while saying "ummmm....". Then you walk away and ask someone else and I realize the answer that I had in my brain the whole damn time. I am not clear nor concise.

This fact gets clearer and …

Just One Touch, Now Baby I Believe

So in preparation for the kid's birthday party next week, my husband and I had to do some super cleaning. That's where it's not just livable clean, not just family is visiting clean, but where you make it strangers entering my house and liable to judge everything clean. This meant I needed music blasting in my ear while I belt out all of my favorite tunes.

This led me to a song that I pretty much never think about. I'm not a Katy Perry fan, but I was a Glee fan. While Glee is pretty good at making unlistable songs amazing, there is just one song from the entirety of their series that stops me in my track and takes me away from life. It gives me chills every.

It takes me back to the first time I watched this episode and I was in tears because there is so much emotion in this song. There's so much love and so much pain and you can absolutely feel it. But not only that. This song. This version makes me think of my husband. It makes me think of…

Wide Awake

Man, it is 5:30 am and I have not slept. At all. I'm not even really tired. I've been having to take melatonin every night to even get sleepy. Otherwise, I stay up until 11 or 12 without even noticing. So the other day I was like I'm gonna see when I naturally get sleepy. I just want to test it out.

Honestly, I didn't think I'd actually have the chance because I'm pretty much constantly busy. If it's not school work, then it's errands, if it's not errands, then it's chores, if it's not chores, then it's some activity/obligation, if it's not an activity or obligation then it's at least just being a mom and wife. Like there is no break. But yesterday I decided that I was taking Friday night off. No homework, no studying, no party planning (ok, I totally party planned), but nothing that doesn't relax me or bring me joy. So while chilling out and enjoying YouTube and binging on a newly found channel, I just was up. My husband sta…
