I'm sitting here listening to an Indigo Girls playlist on YouTube. It's been a while since I listened to them, and oh man, how I've missed these beautiful melodies. They're like the female version of Simon and Garfunkel. They make me want to learn to play the guitar. Their music reminds me of my carefree … Continue reading What Would You Give for your Kid Fears?
Things never quite end up the way I worry that they will. See my video for a recap of my dentist appointment and my run-in with the law today. Pardon the bad lighting, bad outfit and bad hair portrayed in this video. This is really just how I roll at home. https://youtu.be/LrxFZnZWY9Q
Today I'm going to talk about breasts. Boobies, melons, sweater-stretchers. Snuggle-pups or sweater kittens. Whatever you call them, there's no denying that people spend a lot of time thinking about these glorious glands. In my growing-up years, my friends and I gleefully anticipated growing ample bosoms in our teen years. We practiced by stuffing all manner … Continue reading Magnificent Mammaries
Hi, I'm Heather and I'm a procrastinator. I know most everyone can admit to some procrastination here and there. We all have tasks we put off for one reason or another. I'm sure there is at least one person out there who is a more extreme procrastinator than I am, but I don't know them personally. I … Continue reading Procrastinator Extraordinaire
It seems I have been slacking with posts again. I am often thinking about this blog and what story to tell next, or what issue to discuss. Sometimes I think it would be cool to have a way to transmit thoughts directly from my mind into the computer, but then again, that could be pretty … Continue reading Busy Bee or Drama Llama?
Once again, I've let slip my morning writing habit. Of course, this time it has been in favor of spending the time drawing instead of writing. So creatively, I feel like I've been accomplishing something. Unfortunately it doesn't really translate to the blog. Or does it? Despite all my fun drawing in the mornings, I've … Continue reading Illustrated Personal Rant Session
Two things I have been getting right lately are that I've been meditating each morning and I've started Zentangling. Whatsy-tangling, you ask? Zentangling. I first heard about it sometime last year, when my friend Kristina posted some of her drawings online and mentioned that she had been doing it to relieve stress. I was immediately jealous that … Continue reading Sunday Funday Post: Zentangle
I mentioned a couple of whiles ago that I was going to join Toastmasters again. I've been going for about two months now and last Monday I did my first speech, which is known as The Ice Breaker. The objective of the speech is to introduce yourself to your audience and demonstrate what speaking skills … Continue reading Toastmasters Ice Breaker Speech
I recently came across something cool: The What's Underneath Project. The idea is to get people to talk about their sense of style and how they present themselves as they are slowly removing pieces of clothing (down to their undies). It's not a sexy striptease, but a removal of layers and defenses. I think the … Continue reading The What’s Underneath Project – Melanie Gaydos
The following TED talk resonates with me in so many ways; some of which I will explain below. In the video, Ash Beckham talks about the difficulty of coming out of the closet. When you hear 'coming out', you may think it only applies to gay people, but there are many kinds of closets and … Continue reading Speak the Truth, Even if Your Voice Shakes
