News of the Eighties and Ninties (Part One)

The major events in the world happening directly before, during and right after the years we were born are all a part of why we Gen Yers are such a small and unique part of the generational definitions...here is what was happening during the years we were all born.

Why Are We The Forgetten Years

  So, many moons ago, I discussed how I would focus onexactly what I felt made those years from 1979ish to 1983 its own"generation" and with those born in those years not really able tofit into either Gen X or Millenials.   Though I have had this rant and given a few reasons, there have…

Growing Up In The 1980’s & 1990’s…The Start

Growing up in the eighties and nineties was indeed a singular experience. As I get older, I realize precisely how much those years were unique, shaping the generations in them in precise ways. I also have learned that those are some of my most popular posts and will be doing almost its own series on…

I’m Back

So, after some health issues, I am back. I feel a lot better and am ready to get back to it all, including my journey to a healthier me. However, it feels like more of a hill to climb than it did initially. I was making such significant progress and then being knocked down. Now…

Hands off my Buffy and Avengers

That and my loyalty to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, especially in light of the ever-growing allegations against Joss Whedon and his apparent love of abusing his power.

It is hard to believe that we are 10 days into September. It seems like it both took forever to get here and that it came too quickly, and how it feels like both, I do not know. Let's be real. 2020 has been an incredibly long and challenging year. I do not think that…

Another Week Begins

So, its another week in 2020 and starting out as bizarrely as the rest of the year. When you wake up and read the news that people in another state are getting their mail-in ballots to vote safely amidst the global pandemic that has the current president's face on it telling them not to let…

Another Day In The Life

So, I am diligently trying to ensure that I get at least a short blog a day up on my personal site. With that in mind, here it goes. I spent a good portion of my evening working on flyers for an organization I have recently joined, called #518MamasforBLM. Doing this work is similar to…
