Scary Car Breakdown

My life has always been like a movie. From the invisible girl in high school who somehow managed to get the attention of the most popular guy in school, to the girl stranded on the side of the road in the middle of the night because her car broke down. My life truly is a …

Essential Car Repairs

As a single father of four, I don’t get to leave the house very often. I work from home so that I can look after the children, I do all my shopping online and I don’t have time for any hobbies. The only time I ever really leave the house is if I have a …

Endless Optimist

Today I bought my first home. It’s a great feeling, signing the documents that officially make you a homeowner. I feel more in control of my life now, more like an adult. In this economy, it’s pretty difficult to buy a house, but after years of hard work my partner and I could finally afford …

I’ve been using a communal laundry …

Last time I went to one, the location was …

The Car Escape

I’m fleeing my life as I know it. I’ve packed up my belongings and I’m moving across the state to live by the beach. I’m chasing a life that I’ve never had before, a life of freedom, a life of excitement, a life that doesn’t conform to what society deems as appropriate.  I know, for …

Hardware Store Frequenter

When it comes to relationships, I’m really weird. I have a tendency to adopt the hobbies and personality of whoever I’m dating, rather than remaining my own person. My last boyfriend, who is a really great guy despite it not working out, was really interested in building things and learning to use every type of …
