Bad girls/boys club: Does it still feel GOOD to be bad?

It never gets old when I get the reaction of disbelief when I tell people I've been on relief trips or volunteer at service events because looking at me- I'm a very loud, foul language talker, inappropriate humor and tattooed girl.  I don't look like your average humanitarian worker (whatever that is supposed to look like) or the person who spends her weekends working at Moveable Fest

A lesson For My Friends Going to Honduras

 

Summer is rolling along- some of you have taken your vacations, some are coming up, and some people are planning to use their PTO on a relief trip.  Now, I had someone recently ask me, why would I take my precious and so little earned time off from work to go and do MORE work. Especially in the hottest and poorest country in the western hemisphere, Haiti?

No fear

Remember back in the 90's the cool tee shirts everyone wore with "No Fear"- like why did that ever go out of style? In the era of Von Dutch and Stussy and FUBU, I feel like that was probably the most inspirational logo of the decade...one I would very much like to bring back!

MARCH MADNESS...in love?!

Ahhh spring is here (sorta) and this season seems to be a time for many people of growth of change!   The time maybe for spring cleaning of our homes, our clothes, maybe new jobs, spring break vacations, and even cleaning of our personal lives.....which comes to mind......DATING!

What Vacation has taught me……Gratitude

Well despite walking around my office without shoes on, I would say going on this winter vacation to Costa Rica was very rewarding and needed to clear my mind and sharpen my soul after the past grueling months of work and personal stress!  That being said, I also learned how in the midst of the country being at odds either very FOR or AGAINST our new President Donald J. Trump, how truly special it means to be alive and in my own skin.

Presidential Election: Where does CityFam stand and can I at least yell at them anyway?

Presidential Election: Where does CityFam stand and can I at least yell at them anyway?

Well whether you voted for Him or Her, we are having a very interesting week with a new President and the nation either cheering or protesting on the pick.   Like many families, even our own CityFam felt the divide...so I ask the question, does one's political view affect our friendship or relationship with our family? I often read this week on my Facebook newsfeed, "Delete me if you voted for Trump! You are a racist and bigot!" or I read, "Haha you poor losers, suck it up! Get a life!" or we also have the, "Well Hey, #FeeltheBern- I never liked either candidate, don't blame me!"  I have friends in recovery who are looking to drink, friends who are therapists who post Suicide Hotline numbers, or others researching other countries to move to, or posting their tears.....all I wanna say is, "Can't we all just get along?"
