Psycho Billy and the Meth Mouth Mafia This era in our childhood sticks out to me like a sore thumb. Maybe because it was so …..uhh let’s use the word thrilling. Enter the human who self titled himself “Psycho Billy”, this was an interesting guy. This guy was exactly what you would picture a “hillbilly” […]
I debated for quite awhile on whether or not I wanted to get into all this. I feel like not telling the whole story takes away from my blog. I think it is unfair to readers to only get the shiny parts of my life. We all know we cannot truly appreciate the good times […]
My experiences with all walks of lives in 20 different cities before adulthood When I first started writing this I had no clue where I was going with it. After writing about half of it and reading back through it came to me. This post wasn’t going to be about experiences at all. This post […]
I commissioned my little brother to be a guest blogger for me. I enjoy his colorful writing and felt that he could better explain how we all feel about our mother and how we were raised. This one is for you, Mom.
The Art of Letting Go Learning this one skill has changed my life dramatically and it will change yours as well! Like most people, I’ve had several reasons to hold grudges.

Motivated forgetting is a theorized psychological defence mechanism in which people may forget unwanted memories, either consciously or unconsciously.
