For a Blog’s Six Month Anniversary

Yesterday was our anniversary. It was six months to the day since I posted my first entry on this blog. I have to say it has flown by. I thought I would use this time for reflection.

Before I started this blog, people had been telling me to for years. Family and friends kept on suggesting it. I kept brushing it off because honestly it didn’t seem like something I would do. What would I say? What would I write about? It turns out there was plenty.

After my first week, I had a panic attack. Would there be a day when I would have nothing left to say? Apparently that answer is no. I currently have an enormous list of what I plan to write about based on my scheduled activities, past experiences, future plans, seasons, and overall information. Even this post was on my list.

I feel about this blog the way a new parent feels about a newborn. I am often exhausted, low on funds, breathlessly proud to show it off, and ultimately I do not remember my life without it. It has served as a way for me to live my dream even if it is not my full-time career just yet.

The blog has changed the way I view what I do, the kinds of things I want to try, and pushed me to fulfill the promises I have made to myself to “get there”, whatever, wherever there is. I want to experience great things and share it with a community I hope will continue to grow. There are days when the simple act of writing and reliving a memorable activity is enough to put a smile on my face.

For my readers, I hope I have been helpful. I hope you have learned a lot, laughed a lot, and been hungry a lot, after reading and reviewing my photos.  I have no plans to slow down, in fact I hope continue expanding. I hope you continue to follow along on my journey and share a bit of yours with me too.

Happy Six Month Anniversary to Us!!!

P.S. I believe the traditional first year anniversary gift is paper. I am so looking forward to that.


  1. A job well done. "Congratulations" on your Anniversary. I look forward to your future Blogs right along with you. xoxo

For Find Out Friday - Why Do Emery Boards Make My Skin Crawl?

You know that sound a fingernail makes when it scratches against a chalkboard?  You know that feeling the sound of that action gives you? I, like most people, hate that sound.  I instantly feel like scrunching my shoulders up to my neck and closing my eyes.  I feel the exact same way when I am using an emery board to file my nails. This annoying sensation has a name: “grima” which is Spanish for disgust or uneasiness. This term basically describes any feeling of being displeased, annoyed, or dissatisfied someone or something.  It is a feeling that psychologists are starting to pay more attention to as it relates to our other emotions.  Emery boards are traditionally made with cardboard that has small grains of sand adhered to them. It is the sandpaper that I believe makes me filled with grima.  According to studies that are being done around the world, it is not just the feeling that we associate with certain things like nails on a chalkboard or by using emery boards

For My Madness During Migraine Awareness Month

Last weekend as I sat staring at the blank page in front of me, I was still surprised and elated that I had an entire day to myself and unlike past experiences it was filled with what I wanted when I wanted it. There were a few rough moments but when I consider the previous twelve hours (and the days to come) have been better than the last week. Especially this last week even though I had braced myself ahead of time, I just didn’t know I should have braced for a more serious episode. I am a chronic migraine sufferer for so many years I don’t quite remember when they started exactly which is ironic because I can remember every special event they have ruined. I remember plays or dinners I was at where I don’t remember what happened but I could tell you what I felt minute by minute. It amazing how the mind works, especially when it’s operated by a migraine brain. In the last few years, specifically the last few years since I have been going to the Montefiore Headac

For Find Out Friday - Why is One Foot More Ticklish Than the Other?

As I sit here typing I can’t seem to stop thinking about my nails. Mainly that they REALLY need to get done. They are starting to chip and become unruly. As soon I as think about making an appointment my mind immediately returns to this question: “which of my feet will be ticklish this time?” Because I am a girl that needs her fingernails and toenails to match, I always get a pedicure whenever I get my nails done. And while this should be an activity I enjoy, it often feels like a chore, despite my going only once every three to four weeks. I know; #firstworldproblems.  Anyway, each and every time I get my toes done, as soon as they are done soaking in the bubbly water I wonder, which of my feet will be ticklish today?  Without fail one of them always seems to get the brunt of it and suddenly what was supposed to be a relaxing activity has made me all tense. So, is there a scientific reason for this?  According to most research, yes. While the answer doesn’t
