It’s a Primary thing…Indiana today

posted in: Freedom, Life | 0

In June it will be two years since I shared this photo. There was so much going on in my life and today after voting and hearing of others experiences, I wish for two things. One, I wish my Gran was here still because I would love the opportunity to sit and talk about what is going on in the world. Her wisdom was so vast and I didn’t take the time enough to ask and learn more from her. … Read More

Elocute and the Rest Will Follow

posted in: Writing | 0

I often catch myself smothering the writer in me. I take a pillow to the creature within that is pleading for freedom and exposure. I suppose this horrifying visual should be enough to scare anyone into, say, actions that would provoke the opposite practice? It doesn’t so much horrify me as make me sad and stare at the statue sitting at my desk in contemplation of why THIS behavior. Along the way to defining myself as a writer I have … Read More

Don’t trash the passion

posted in: Life | 0

I am a passionate person. Passionate. (If you’re reading that part out loud you would say, for drama, Passionate period. *wink*) Fortunately, or unfortunately depending how you choose to view this behavior element of me, that passion flows over to nearly every facet of Me, Maddie. I am passionately angry, I passionately love, I am passionate about books, I am passionate. Do we get it yet? Less we start to think I am writing this to excuse my actions behind the … Read More

The Freak Child they tried to Paint their Golden Calf

posted in: Life | 1

At this point in my adult life my backbone is straight enough and my tongue crude enough to put people in their place. Did I mention my patience is short too? The scene happens more times than I care to remember and I’m sure it will continue until people realize they are in possession of wrong information and learn their lesson. What am I talking about? The reaction to finding out I was homeschooled, for only 3 years mind you, … Read More

When all the greatest seats are taken…

posted in: Life | 1

8, August, 2015 Note: I wrote this post back in April. Whether it be a further example of the subject matter or the ‘distractions’ of life, whose to say. I am at another point in life where change, the future, and the past are playing an interesting game of chance. My strong advice to myself has been that loud clanging bell of TRUST and even though it is loud…it is not easy. My hope is still, to post this and … Read More

The Check that always bounces

posted in: Graphic Design, Life | 0

Today has been a no motivation day. I quietly sit at the shop and idle away my hours seeking ways to fill my time with menial to “no importance whatsoever” tasks. After the rough days I feel owed these bouts of laziness; of course when every other day feels like a “rough day” you begin to notice a pattern that has you battering yourself about in a single dodgeball tournament with the formidable ‘Wall’ opponent…hello solo. (insert wink) This is … Read More

You don’t have a job?

posted in: Work | 0

I don’t often embark on the story of my employment history. The reasons are numerous, but honestly? Much of it is touchy business and the two-step fox trot and boggy is not a dance I like to employ when wishing to be candid. I have remained friends with many of my previous co-workers because I did and do have strong ties with them. However, by no means do I wish my delving into the past moments to hurt any of … Read More

They kicked me off the team and why goals aren’t for me

posted in: Books, Lists, New Year | 0

Once upon a time I created goal lists. Sometimes these goal lists were vast and detailed and other times small, but yet grand in expectation. The commonality among all the lists? A resounding and overwhelming feeling of failure. The New Year would arrive and the list(s) would have little to none marked off as accomplished. I would be left feeling so much woe and I didn’t know how to handle it. I didn’t know how I could possibly commit to … Read More
