    Maybe Someday

    I would like to be a more dependable person. Someone who knows what she is doing at what is going on around her. At the moment, I'm lucky if I survive the day without tripping on my on feet. It feels like I lack the basic skills in everyday living. Cooking and cleaning, that...

    I got here by myself.

    I did it by myself. My achievements I owe only to God and my mentor, my Mother. My parents raised a strong, independant woman. I don't cry. I have been told I intimidate people (unintentionally, of course). I have no time for weakness. But sometimes, I feel envious of all those...

    I turned 25 in February

    and decided to take some time to look back on my life and where I am now. And while I'm not exactly where I thought I would be at a quarter of a century old, I can say that I'm proud of what I've achieved. I can afford to live in my own place with no roommates, I take care of my...

    A Global Threat

    This is a mental tune. Real Punk. I love it. The song spoke to me and before I turned 40 I did just this. This was my life, 10 hours a night in a UK cubicle! After 20 years of loyalty to the Biggest Bank in the UK I did indeed discover I was just a number...... I stood up, I...

    I Am Who I Am

    I am a strong, independent woman. Not because that is what I originally choose, but it was forced upon me. My father’s psychological abuse of my mother, forced her to leave him; so she could fulfill her duties as a mother to me. In my early twenties, I had a choice, I could...

    My mother is a very strong and independent woman... so she raised her daughters to be so too. We had no choice or say in the matter. =p My mother asks a lot a questions in her lifetime, so it was of a small wonder that I was born very quizzical myself. Though, I drove my parents...

    Now I know I don't have everything all figured out, but I've come to some conclusions during a recent conversation with my 18 year old daughter.  She is a cute little thing with a envious body (bigger breasts than me) and super smart in school.  She was telling me that...
