For My Blog's 2nd Birthday

I can hardly believe it but two years ago today I started this blog. I cannot believe it has been that long. I am so connected to it I cannot imagine a time when I existed and it did not. I have no idea what I did with my time or thoughts. I feel like I have so much to say and such a limited about of time to share it, and that’s now. God what did I do then?

I never reread posts; once they are proofed and posted I am done. The longer time goes on the more I am additament that I do not go back in time unless I need some information. I feel awkward reading thoughts of someone else, because that’s how I feel. Once I write something I feel I have shed it and am onto the next. But when you see your growth or how you would do it differently now it can feel strange. I guess I should also see it as rewarding the changes I have made in my life and in myself.

Today I reread last years birthday blog ( which I haven’t done since I posted it. Ironically I was sick this week too. Not with a sinus infection thankfully, but with one of the worst migraines of all time that have lasted two weeks now. With that illness it has left me out of commission for all things, work, sleep, even showering on a daily basis but now that I am getting my strength back I realized how much I missed my blog. It had been a couple of weeks since I posted and I was feeling that yearning in my gut to start typing. All of the topics I had planned on writing were floating through my head one after another and as I added lines to them I knew it was not time to write them just yet. I had not yet properly reflected on this anniversary so I thought I would just sit down and see what words would flow from me.

As I look through my detailed list of planned blogs I know what I want to write, day to day, week to week, from here until the last week of April right now. Dates might change of course depending on my ability to write that day but there are some that matter because of special occasions and I will have to do whatever is necessary to get it done.

What I am doing differently this year than last, is that I am writing more and more blogs ahead of time. I am not even doing it on purpose. Usually when this happens it is for a blog idea that just popped into my head and the emotions and words are streaming at such a strong speed I have to stop to write them down before my head explodes. Ordinarily I just think things through and save it in my head until the date arrives to blog about it.

Also this year I feel I am tapping into a deeper level. I am not just sharing information about where I go and why you should too. I want to also share who I am and the things and people who are important in my life. This will become an even stronger thread in 2013. I have never thought about whether or not I would blog any more. It’s not a possibility for me. Originally this might have been something I did on the side, it was only a part of my life. Now though it is my life. It is a part of my soul. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about something I want to write or edit. I am inspired by everything and my mind is constantly working. Even when I can’t function from a migraine the blog is in the back of my mind as an outlet for me to release my feelings and share helpful information with others.

I am grateful for all of my readers and supporters. I hope to continue to surprise, entertain, and wow them. I also hope to attain a larger fan base and pass the message around. It is a very powerful feeling to know that you can share your thoughts and words with the world, however small or large it may be.

So I guess what I am trying to say is that I have fully settled into my role as The Queen of F-cking Everything and there is nothing I would rather be. 


  1. I enjoy reading your blogs and always look forward to your suggestions and reviews. Im so happy that your doing this and feel it comes so natural to you. Dont ever stop and always follow your heart on what you want to do.

  2. Happy Birthday to you and your blog. Hope you get the chance to achieve your goals and always look forward to better health and continued writing success. xoxo

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 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 a New Chain of Mexican Fast Food: “Dos Toros Taqueria”

When it comes to fast food there are the names we are familiar with: McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, and Chipotle.  In you live in New York City, there is a new kid in town: Dos Toros.  Dos Toros is relatively new to this area but with any hope there might be one in your town soon.  Started by two brothers, Leo and Oliver Kremer, from Berkeley, California, the Mexican food you find here is inspired by food they loved growing up.  In California, the brothers grew up worshipping Gordo Taqueria, a favorite of Bay Area residents since 1977 (now promptly added to my San Francisco to eat list). Much of the recipes and even decor found at Dos Toros has been modeled on Gordo. Before moving to NYC in 2008, the brothers were living very different lives. Leo was the bassist for the band “Third Eye Blind”. Oliver fresh out of college, considered working in the technology or finance industry. Both disillusioned with their lives, they decided to pursue something they have l
