wildcard-bitches-deactivated201 asked: What about you? What's your story? Married with 80 kids?
Some random facts about me (I’m in that kinda mood, sorry): I like all my drinks cold (especially coffee) 80% of the time, all the time. I’ve been known to order a mocha frapp while it is raining out. I’m not lactose intolerant, but I don’t consume dairy very often because it upsets my stomach. So that means I drink soy milk and eat soy ice cream. I’m pretty much...
Three leaf clovers: I think people would pay good... →
a Hogwarts University. Like, when you’re paying $50k a year for an education, it can and should include dress robes, big dance balls and butter beer. I’m not saying it would be all Quidditch and Transformation, either. Hogwarts students face rigorous academics and quality professors and hard… This was wonderfully touching and amusing. You just know how to tell a good story. And I...
20 albums that will always stick
I tried to make a list of 15 albums that came to my mind, but once I got going I couldn’t stop, so I ended with 20. I had to leave out all the artists that inspire me in other genres (Joe Bonamassa in Blues, POS in Hip-Hop, Valencia in Pop-Punk), and just go with the albums that inspire me entirely. They all have different reasons for making me feel something deeper than most other music,...
The Honest Puzzle
I’ve spent much of my time thinking about people lately. I’ve seen and heard some disappointing and depressing stories this year. I’ve had my own demons to deal with, but seeing 20 year marriages fall apart and the general lying and decent and awfulness people inflict on each other has been hard on my heart. I know that people are generally selfish. I know that many of us stay...
Songs That Kinda Get Me Choked Up That You Can Be...
imaginaryrawr: With no explanations or excuses, in no particular order: Danny’s Song - Loggins & Messina Cat’s In The Cradle - Harry Chapin Something Is Wrong - Phantom Planet Dog Problems - The Format Elephants - Rachael Yamagata Landslide - Fleetwood Mac You Were Meant For Me - Jewel Fire and Rain - James Taylor No judgment, just agreement
My favorite part about my best friends is how they always seem to contact me on the same days. One lives in New York and the other in LA and yet it always seems like they are collaborating to come cheer me up after a particularly hard day. And today wasn’t hard, per say, it was just long. And I was drained both physically and emotionally. I’m finding it hard to believe in good people...
I’ve slipped a bit this week. But I’m starting to come to the realization that some people are just wrong and bad and they don’t change. I need to learn that there are times when letting go of hope is the best thing and there are times when holding onto hope that seems faulty is the best thing.
Patience is my best friend, but one of those harsh best friends that knows you...

Cool Multi-Tasking Career Mom (CMTCM) What makes our type unique is that we get up at 4:00 am not because we can’t sleep but because this is about the best shape we are in and can actually write these blogs. I love to write, create, commiserate….any of the ate verbs :-). This is my outlet…. My mom is on tumblr. I know… I know… But you should follow her! Give her advice on how...
cassusriff said: I want what you two have.
jamievallentine: it’ll find you, just when you don’t expect it to :] That’s what people keep telling me. I suppose time will tell. In the meantime, it is nice to be completely happy in every other facet of my life. It’s funny that I am probably more prepared and ready for a relationship than I’ve ever been and yet it’s the more elusive than it has ever been.
Actors Playing The Same Roles →
Interesting article. I admit I’ve fallen for the public consensus that actors playing the same role again and again aren’t great actors. But is versatility really everything? I mean, if a surgeon is really good at brain surgery, doesn’t he or she specialize in brain surgery? If a guitarist plays guitar extremely well, do we except him or her to start playing drums too? ...
I seriously love them. After geeking out about Harry Potter last night with my Aunt and cousin, today I talked with my sister for a long time about the same topic. And we talked about delicious burritos and other awesome stuff! My bro and sis may be all the way in New Jersey, but I love them all the same. So happy to have them in my life.
I live for these days. Doing laundry, watching football, organizing and finishing homework. Just relaxing at home and getting ready for the week. Idk, I guess I’m old and boring but I have a pretty exciting life, so I don’t really mind some downtime.
When you start to feel alone but run into a ton of old friends. It turns out that you are still someone people will go out of their way to say hi to. And then you see others who acted above you but are now working at the bar you go to blow off steam after working a full time job all day. You see the college grads who are still high and living with their parents and you say to yourself,...
Ever get the feeling
That everyone moved on? That you’ve been left behind? That all the important people in your life to this point just don’t exist in that framework anymore? I do.
It just wasn't mine
wickedgame: From that moment I wasn’t angry anymore…Kids, you may think your only choices are to swallow your anger or throw it in someone’s face, but there’s a third option: You can just let it go, and only when you do that is it really gone and you can move forward. And that kids, was the perfect ending to a perfect love story. It just wasn’t mine. Mine was still out there, waiting for me. ...
Thanks for the reminder...
Talking to a friend and she mentioned she missed making out. I then got to think about the last time I kissed a girl… February. Bad year for romance, good year for everything else. I guess that’s balance.

Read all a blog it!
I know, my fellow tumblrers, that I am boring. I write too much and don’t post enough indie couples kissing during a sunset or poetic quotes written in artsy ways. I know I don’t post enough cool songs that are hip but uncommon enough to be cool. But I communicate with words. It seems to be lost on people these days. I wish that for every intriguing person I met, I could read a short...

Letter to Myself
I wrote this at least 6 years ago. Maybe I did “get it” sometimes. Wow. Dear Corey, I write to you for the reason I only know. I’ll give you the love that no one else has shown. You’ve tried many wrong ways to hide your pain. Just let it out and don’t give up and live in vain. I know to understand you, is to understand myself. With that fact, I must ask, how can I...
Unpacking the Past
Whenever I move (which, let’s be honest, is quite a bit. 5 times in the last 4 years I believe?), I always go through old mementos and pictures and stuff. Every time I do this, I throw away a little bit more. But there are certain things that I hold onto no matter what, even if they only time I do look at them is when I unpack and repack them. I was saying today that when I look at myself...
Fighting Prejudice with Prejudice
I haven’t written something like this in a while, so I may be rusty but this is also therapeutic. With Prop 8 passing, I, along with many others, am very happy. I love that people are happy about it too. I love seeing equality win, more than anything. People deserve the same rights, no matter their sexual preference. What I don’t love, in any situation, is when people use...
Dear California, It’s been a crazy day, but I heard the news. Thanks CA for figuring your shit out… at least when it comes to equality. Now please go figure out your damn budget. Love as always, Lifetime resident (except one year in AZ), Corey
I can’t stop buying, building, arranging, cleaning things in my new apartment. I love it so much. It’s coming together so nicely too! But I’m going to emerge back into the world soon (I have to, I have work!). And I vowed I’d get back to swimming daily after this move weekend (I even bought goggles!) so I’m going to work out. But after that, more apartment projects!...
