For all my blog posts 2014-early 2020, aka in the pre-covid world.

Are You Being Manipulated? Yes. Also, You’re A Master Manipulator.

A year or so ago I had a startling epiphany. Maybe you’ve already discovered this life truth (though likely never speak of it), but for me, the realization was profound: Every. Thing. Is. Manipulating. You. You’re being manipulated constantly by every person, every image, every interaction you have. But there’s more. YOU are also a […] Read more…

What is Joining Mensa Like? Why Moms Should Join & What It’s Really Like

If you follow my instagram, you may have noticed a couple posts I made earlier this summer. Here’s one where I was dressed up as a pineapple.

I’m big on disclosures, so I’m putting this out there right off the bat: For the first (and possibly only) time ever – I have a product in this Ultimate Productivity Bundle, my Wannabe Bullet Journal. This means that I’m a bit more personally invested in this bundle than I have been for previous bundles.
