I’ve spent the last few weeks binge-watching VEEP. All seven seasons. It was something that was on my watch list for some time and lately, I’ve been in the show whole.

It’s been quiet in my world.  This is something I’m getting used to.  If I’m not being bombarded on texts or emails full of things people want from me…. well… it’s quiet.  It’s bothering me a lot this week.  I could use someone to just chat with.  Or hang out with and have nothing important … Read More

Okay… so I’m stressing out. Up until this point, I was fine and really, couldn’t care less about the event I’m attending tomorrow. Just looked at it as another one of those kinds of events that calls for me to attend on be half of work. But… I won’t really be working. I’ll be attending. … Read More
