I don’t know how to feel about men cheating being different because of the emotional detachment.

Cheating is cheating in my eyes and there aren’t any excuses. That’s my opinion though. I just can’t wrap my mind around it being that I was raised by all women and see the hurt guys make them go through.

It sucks. What do you guys think?

Thoughts of a woman revealed

Have you ever noticed how men will go literally crazy if he even suspects his woman is seeing someone else?  This man will shut all the way down on you and act like you committed murder or something!  I know that as women we really go crazy too but its something different when a man does it.  It seems like it take his whole soul out of him.  A man can cheat on his woman time after time after time and he says oh it was a mistake or just something that happened then proceed to continue on with his day like nothing happened.

Ladies I want you all to know that a quiet man is a man who is hurt.  As women we should all understand why though and if you don’t let me explain it to you.  Most women who cheat is already cheating for a reason in the first…

Your Wedding, Your Money

Sometimes you gotta switch it up and realize how much money you’re spending on a wedding. 

Quite a change from books you say? I know right. 

This is a complete Julius from Everybody Hates Chris financial breakdown. Gotta love it.

Damn, Girl. Get Your Shit Together.

Uh oh, DGGYST has been reading again. Nothing good can come of that. I get new information and then I pass it on to you like some kind of horrible virus. You didn’t want to know about your giant clitoris, but I found out and just couldn’t help but tell you, so now you must take that information with you to the grave… or to the gynecologist where you will only think, “Zucchini clit, zucchini clit,” over and over and over again.

So when I read an article that the average cost of a wedding climbed to a record high of $35,329 last year, I was a bit stupefied and immediately felt the need to discuss it with you.

Now let me assure you, I think you are a big sexy adult who is entirely capable of spending her money the way she sees fit. There are a bunch…

Chainsaw Ridge

Author One Scene One

“Alice!”

The voice is a blend of husky and shrill, like nails on a chalkboard. Alice cringes at the sound of it.

“Alice.” It repeats. “You better answer me, dammit!”

“Yes, daddy.”

The rickety steel framed bed creaks as Alice rolls onto her side. She’s cradled by the dip in the overly used and extremely stained mattress, that she’s been sleeping on for nearly twenty years. The same bed she slept in as a toddler. A waft of her uncleansed flesh floats into the air with her movements. The sour pinch of the smell wins its competition with the week old garbage pile to her side. Alice mozies to the window of her bedroom to let some breeze in, as she listens to her crippled father’s voice. She knows full well what’s coming.

“My babies are starvin’, get yer…

My Tips for Defeating a Reading Slump

Reading Sanctuary

Reading slumps suck. If you’re anything like me, they start to bring you down after a while, and it all becomes a bit of a vicious cycle. I have a lot of experience with reading slumps. Sometimes they last a few weeks, other times months or years. I’ve recently escaped a reading slump, so while it’s fresh in my mind, I thought I’d share with you my tips for getting over reading slumps/avoiding them. This post was partially inspired by my recent Top Ten Tuesday post Top Ten Tuesday – Recommendations to Defeat a Reading Slump, which I wrote along side this one.
