Gretchen, stop trying to make insomnia happen! It’s not going to happen!

Among a lot of other cringe things I’ve seen on the rise in TV shows is the concept that insomnia is “cool” and makes you “edgy.”  As someone who’s suffered from crippling insomnia (the awake for days kind) for over a decade and has been awake for the better part of the past 5 days – ssttttoooopppp. Remember that one person in high school/college who would complain about pulling an “all nighter” ?

Updates and downdates (that’s a thing, right?)

Y’ALL. Ok so update #1, I had a birthday and I moved! Now I’m 24 and currently residing with the hubs in a 1 bedroom in the U(pper)E(ast)S(ide) – see, you’ll learn New York lingo in no-time.

And of course hubs snags a job without even lifting a finger or trying, meanwhile my degree-in-theater-performance-having-ass is out here setting Indeed.com as a homepage to try and live.  I hook this … Continue reading Updates and downdates (that’s a thing, right?)
