Six Things That Suck About Living In The City

New-York-City-Skyline

Let me start off by saying that I understand some people get bent out of shape when anyone refers to New York as “the city” because it seems to imply that New York is the only city and somewhere like Sacramento might as well have tumble weeds and OK Coral style gun fights in the streets. That’s not what I’m doing here. I wanted to call this post Six Things That Kind Of Suck About Living In The City because I felt like people from lots of cities could relate Read More…

Nine Reasons To Go To Minneapolis

MinnesotaGreetings

One of my first posts ever on this blog was called Nine Reasons To Go To Milwaukee which I started by saying: Before my most recent trip to check out my brother’s new home, anyone that I told I was going to Milwaukee all had the same response: Why? Leading up to Minnesota was no different. As everyone was packing their Labor Day bags for the shore, I was packing mine for the midwest and anyone I told couldn’t seem to understand why. Well I’ll tell you why! It’s because over Read More…

TheRheels

Remember back when going to your parents’ house was a total drag? Mostly because you were a moody twenty-year-old who made everyone miserable? Well now you’re way older and life out there in the real world is hard. Sometimes there’s nothing more comforting than packing a weekend bag and hopping on the train to spend a couple of days with the people whose job it is to love your sorry ass. Here’s why: #1 They Live In A Real House Just look at the size of this place! You know Read More…

Six Reasons To Go To Indian Rocks Beach

IndianRocksBeach

A number of years ago, one of my very best friends gave up a cherished Manhattan apartment that she had called home for well over a decade. She had a two-year-old son at the time and the rising costs of living in New York City were making it harder and harder to provide adequately for him. So rather than stay and struggle, she made the very responsible decision to abandon her beloved urban dwelling and head to Florida where paying rent doesn’t require that you forfeit other luxuries, like eating Read More…

Ain’t No Babies Up In This Crib

BeFunky_Cairo Kelly 1

Whether or not I want to have kids is something I’ve always been unsure of. My pendulum of emotions on the subject swings so drastically that in the span of a month, I can go from being one of those self-righteous assholes who dry heaves any time the subject of babies comes up, to practically scanning the subway for potential sperm donors. Being in my thirties isn’t helping, especially since I’m not in any position to have a child right now. As the time slips away to potentially mother something, Read More…

Ten Reasons I Know I’m Getting Older

15-minute-hour-glass

Getting older was never really something I concerned myself with, mostly because in my mind, it wasn’t happening to me. I mean, I still live like someone in their twenties. I’m not married, I have no kids, and I don’t know what a 401K is. However, lately I’ve been taking notice of some things that are somewhat alarming to me, and I’m pretty sure they’re signs that I’m getting older. #1 I Can’t Take Foul Language Yes, I know I use it on this site quite regularly, but six-year-olds aren’t Read More…

Going on vacation can be lots of fun, but there usually comes a point where you’re over everything and everyone around you and you just want to go home. Here are ten reasons why you don’t have to mourn the end of your holiday: #1. You Can Relax Sure that’s what you were supposed to be doing while you were on vacation, but instead, you filled every day, for a week straight, with one activity that was more insane than the last.

Nine Reasons To Go To Milwaukee

BeFunky_099

Before my most recent trip to check out my brother’s new home, anyone that I told I was going to Milwaukee all had the same response: Why? To be honest I was a little skeptical myself until Jeff mentioned that it was full of beer, cheese and immigrants, at which point I was nervous I may end up moving there. I managed to make it back, but after spending the weekend, I can now count the Brew City as one of the cooler places I’ve visited. Here’s why: 1. City Read More…
