When you tell your friends, in disbelief, about this post, you will say, “She’s liveblogging her nervous breakdown.” I am doing that. Because I don’t know what else to do.
I woke up on August 12th and my Twitter account was stolen. This is not a small account. I have 130,000 followers. Is it too optimistic to use the present tense? I’m not sure, because there is still a picture of a cat in the spot that should be me.
I can’t stop reading about Judge Kavanaugh. I am learning so much about how the world works. His yearbook from high school is horrifying. There were derogatory jokes about women throughout the pages.

What I’ve learned from selling stuff on this blog is that I don’t like to do it. It’s hard to tell you I’m hating myself and then tell you, “Buy my course about happiness!” So, I’ve decided to change my business model. Except that I don’t actually have a new business model yet. And while […]

And this is urgent, because all people with Aspergers […]
The New York Times has an 11-point list of questions to ask yourself to see if you’ve done everything you can to save your marriage. I coach a lot of people who are thinking about getting a divorce. Almost everyone feels that their spouse is impossible, unresponsive, and/or doesn’t care about the issues at hand.
About once a week I take my kids to eat at the Swarthmore College cafeteria. I’d say that after playing video games, this is their favorite thing to do. The boys marvel at the range of kid-friendly food choices. I marvel at the panoply of dietary trends the school caters to.
