Hello friend, I am indescribably glad that you found your way here and I hope that you enjoy my mindless rambling, pity parties, cat stories, platitudes, ellipses, beer reviews, and personal life lessons. I also hope that you will feel free to share your own. I am a student of life and an avid people watcher… help me expand my education.

As for me, I am a 28 year old female living in the wilds of Philadelphia. Though it is not always sunny here, I hope my sunny disposition (or at least my attempts at humorous self depreciation) will bring a smile to your face.

I have been told recently that I am behaving bravely when it comes to recent struggles that have cropped up in my life. If this is true, then bravery really is just a survival tactic. My goal, therefore, is not just to survive but to thrive. I plan to finally live for myself and discover what is of value inside of me. This is my attempt at being entirely my own self, at living authentically and not seeing myself as secondary or a sidekick. So join me in this strange and meandering path toward self discovery with a lovely cup of coffee (always a necessity). Cuddle up in your hammock or easy chair and watch my progress through existence: laugh along with my misfortunes, cry with me, celebrate with me, sing the song of my people… be a human being and live with me.
