As If Pregnancy Isn’t Hard Enough…

Pregnancy.  Ummm…  There are no words.  People say the funniest and the most foolish things to pregnant women, all in the name of being “understanding” or “thoughtful” or even “friendly”.  Many people just don’t know what to say to a pregnant woman, aside from the classic “congratulations!” and […]

I Don’t Want Everything

What is the perfect life? I believe it is different for every single person, but the media tries to get us all to want the same things… We are socialized to have certain expectations from life, and follow a specific pathway to happiness. We all know the pathway. […]
