I was slated to write something about National Lipstick Day, but I realized that writing about lipsticks without mentioning shades or brands* is really of no value to anyone. It also makes me sick to think that I'll be writing drivel if I try to skew the messaging to confidence, freedom, etc. Besides, we all know it's really not my style to write Things to Make You Feel Better. I tried my best to be positive throughout this post, drawing Inner Strength and Grace Under Pressure while I wrote, but if it's not to your liking, please know that I have done nothing but love and support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each, wait.
So what happened on July 28, 2015, Tuesday, for it to deserve to be called My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day?

At this point, I have already read all of your books - Fangirl, Landline, Eleanor and Park, and lately, Attachments. Can I call you Rainbow? I think I should be comfortable in the First Name Basis territory after obsessively reading your oeuvre. But, ya know, Rainbow, I have to confess, this one didn't hit the right nerves as Fangirl did.

So I feel like I have to come clean that it's just plain laziness that's been keeping me from blogging. But please do read on; I have been doing pretty legit stuff to kept me away from blogging lately.

First off, Happy Father's Day to all dads and father figures out there! I am so lucky to have a dependable, hilarious, and very super so much hero of a father. I look up to him in every which way and he has taught me so many practical life lessons of which I want to share with you.

So before I fall off the wagon (totally out of context) of not writing again, and as much as I resolved never to mix work with this blog, here I am sharing something I wrote for work. I really was not in the writing mood over the weekend, so I hope to get a pass for repurposing content (It's what I do).
The article blurb says A young woman's narrative of finding her own meaning to freedom like Movie Trailer Guy is reading it out loud, but this is totally me. I asked my manager not to give me a byline and not show my photos because I am shy that way, but I am totally adding photos here for reference.
Please read below the cut if you are so inclined.
