- I'm not a writer in the "paid" sense... not anymore. I used to write screenplays of my own, and doctor up those of other writers for pay (for which I will always feel guilt).
I've started writing again (after writing nothing more than psychology and education term papers in the past ten years) to get back in the habit. I'm not sure where it will take me, but it's nice to be back in the saddle again.
I'm finishing up a masters degree in Education, and work during the day as a nanny (BEST job in the entire world). Life is pretty darn good.

I have enough for three weeks.
Try Sallie Mae.
Waking up sweaty, panicky, anxious.
Pulling out light bulbs.
So why am I shopping at Whole Foods?
It's just so nice. Read full post »
I have a confession to make. I've been off TV for exactly one month as of today. This doesn't mean that I can't watch television at other people's houses or at work - but for the most part, I haven't had much opportunity to do that. And the televisions at my… Read full post »
I have a recurring dream. I've had it for years. It goes like this:
I live in a house. It's a big, beautiful old house with dozens of rooms. It's a lovely house, the one I've always dreamed of - but it's almost completely empty. And most of the rooms, I… Read full post »
I have just come to realize that this blogging business is really just cheap therapy in disguise. I mean, who has $175 an hour to shell out for someone to listen to them talk? This is simpler, more direct, and less painful. Plus I get some really great feedback.
I just… Read full post »
I've gotten one love letter in my life. One. It was from a boyfriend I had out in L.A. after I had left and moved to Atlanta. Our relationship was doomed from the start. I met him just three months before I was supposed to leave. And because of this, there… Read full post »
Two days. Without television. I honestly didn't know if I could do it. I thought I would be digging the digital receiver back out of the closet and hooking it up again just to catch a few more episodes of... something. But I haven't. And surprise of surprises - I haven't… Read full post »
This post is a follow-up to my earlier post, "TiVo is My Crack Pipe." I had pledged to those who read my blog that I would be getting rid of all television reception in my house - for good. This doesn't extend to my Netflix subscription, but means that I won't… Read full post »
I need a new iPad, right? Yes, I'm sure I do. And I need the $829 64GB Wi-Fi + 3G version so that I can use it absolutely anywhere and store my next novel on it. Like a really lightweight, constantly connected computer.
But it's not really a computer. It doesn't… Read full post »
It's coming. Sunday night. The end of my six-year affair with Jack Shephard, Kate Austen, James Sawyer, Hugo Reyes and John Locke. I can't say it's been all romance - there have been fights, betrayals... even murders. But now that it's winding down to the conclusion, I realize… Read full post »
I have always been addicted to television. It started with Captain Kangaroo and Sesame Street. I was truly invested in the lives of those puppets and their human friends, and I was determined to find out exactly HOW to get to Sesame Street and join them. In high school I rushed… Read full post »
Last night I was lying in bed, mostly asleep but not entirely because I knew that I had to be up early. I was doing the requisite self-torture of rolling over and squinting at the clock every 20 minutes or so, when I suddenly heard one of my windows CRASH into… Read full post »
When I was in high school (a la 1987), our hometown movie theater charged $4.50 to see a movie. A first-run movie. On opening weekend. Even if 3-D glasses were involved (and sometimes, they were - those aren't a new invention, kids.) $4.50 was all it took to sit down in… Read full post »
In listening to the joint press conference today between Britain's new Prime Minister from the Conservative Party, David Cameron and the Deputy Prime Minister from the Liberal Party, Nick Clegg, I was struck by one crazy idea. What if Barack Obama had chosen John McCain as his Vice President? &… Read full post »
Today is the day. No, I mean it. Today really is the day:
I will no longer eat at fast food restaurants.
I will work out an hour every day.
I will call my family every weekend.
I will to go to concerts and plays.
I will take… Read full post »
Do you know what I like doing more than almost anything else in the world? Laundry.
First, you take a pile of spilled-on, wrinkled, sweated-in, dirty clothes, sheets, towels and underwear and throw them into a giant metal bin that will spin them around with steaming water and sweet-smell… Read full post »
I've been thinking lately about why I've never gotten married. Until about two months ago, I had all the time in the world. Until about two months ago, I could be ridiculously picky. The personal ad in my head read something like this:
Seeking: Single (never married), tall, go… Read full post »
It's hours before the official commencement of Mother's Day, and it makes me think about my own relationship with my mom. Every year, I send her the obligatory basket of wine, cheese and chocolates with a 50-character message - and every year, I call her days later to ask if she's… Read full post »
