So you went to an All Girls Catholic High School....

Most of these things will seem familiar



AT HIGH SCHOOL

Plaid, plaid and more plaid

Formal Dress Uniform

PSAT classes after school with boys from all boys school? say what? (Time to do makeup)

Having a crush on that one hot totally married younger teacher

Wishing that the uniform pants were not the worst most awful thing ever invented, must always wear Skirt.

Male guests cannot pass the carpet line in the main office.

Detention for having your shirt un-tucked, alas Saturday or Lunch Detention is lame.

Women in the Church and Campus Ministry were the best feminist, artsy, awesome classes ever.

Potluck for "Foods from a Spanish Speaking Country Day" in Spanish Class

Having teachers, administrators that you call, Sister......

Only wearing black shoes, finding fashionable ones.....ahhhhh

Not having to worry about what to wear, so easy!

Sleeping in homeroom or cramming for an exam.

Fridays, Get out at 12:15 wooooo

Trying to finagle getting your friend asked to Homecoming at your Brother School so you both can go together.

Freshman Dance Lessons...aka most awkward afternoons ever.

Elective Art Classes....wooo ceramics.

Bible as Literature Old Testament timeline....THE WHOLE TIMELINE...

SPEECH class, most nerve wracking class ever known to woman.

Not wearing makeup and getting judged; also; wearing makeup and getting judged.

Finding a date that is approved for Prom, scary if they don't go to brother school.

Student Run Theater.

Yoga

Pajama pants under your skirt on cold days, usually leads to getting in trouble

Not knowing anything safe sex or prophylactics, since they press abstinence and natural family planning in health class.

What is a coed situation? I don't know? I just sit and am awkward...

Heading to college with no understanding of why guys act like children.

Dream and swoon over movies like The Notebook, Twilight and gaining a total misreprestation of relationships.  

Get into an amazing university because of school and good grades but have no idea how to exist in society.

GOING TO COLLEGE:

and I think...

What do you mean I can hang out with people after class? Don't they live 45 minutes from the only all girls school in the county? Nope, they are two doors down in my dorm! SWEET.

What do you mean I can wear jeans to class, do I need a jeans pass, is there a fundraiser? NOPE, ITS LIFE, YOU CAN WEAR WHAT YOU WANT, WIN!

Also, a boy is sitting next to me in class....and they speak in class and have opinions...WHAT IS THIS SORCERY? A Differing point of view? Sexually charged classes? OK

If a boy offers to give you a massage, it's really not because you are tense from studying, it's because they want to see you naked....lesson learned.

Dates are not a meeting in the dining hall, that's just eating dinner, also you can eat there alone, you won't die.

A small college is very much like a high school, but since you didn't go to a coed one, you really have no idea what to do with yourself...so WELCOME TO HIGH SCHOOL 17-18 YEAR OLD, glad your BEHIND EVERYONE ELSE IN ALL THINGS SOCIAL.


Good Luck.



This was my life....but im ok now.

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
