It’s Not Me; It’s You

I hate it when reality comes to kick me in the ass. My mom came for a visit a couple of weeks ago. She had a conference in town and decided to bookend it with a stay at Disney, and because I now live so close, that also meant more than one trip to my apartment. Now, I know you don’t know my mom. She is polite, gracious, smart, funny, and the mother of all perfectionists. And she has definite ideas about who I should be.

To My Mother, For Mother’s Day

On this Mother’s Day 2011, I just want to say thank you for being the best mother I could have ever had. I know you’re shining down on me, and I hope you’re smiling at what you see.

More Like Mom

I spent most of my childhood feeling distant from my mom. I want to be comfortable enough with myself that I can walk out of the front door each morning and say, “Hello World. This is me. Love me, or hate me. This. is. me.”

My Mother's Daughter

My motherhas always been an out-of-the-box kind of thinker. Don’t just send a resume, if you’re applying for a publicity position (which I was at the time), send them a PR plan. If there’s something you want and you fail the first time, just look at it from a different angle.
