Dying A Thousand Deaths Thumbnail

I don't have any statistics to back this up (though I could totally Google that), but I think many marriages don't end with one huge calamitous event. They don't always end overnight, with one deal breaker.

Half Measures Thumbnail

There is an episode of Breaking Bad that I can't stop thinking about. It's when one of the characters, Mike, tells Walter White, the story of half measures.

No titles like M.D., PhD, or whatever else is out there. No accolades or recognized accomplishments… Read More

There Was No Wedding Thumbnail

Most girls dream of their wedding day. The perfect man, the perfect dress, the perfect venue, the perfect cake, the perfect first dance, the perfect day. I am not most girls. I grew up announcing loudly to anyone who would listen that I was "never going to get married or have a wedding, pfffttt." Never… Read More
