I Run the Boy’s Club

I Run the Boy’s Club

I RUN THE BOY’S CLUB, DON’T YOU KNOW THAT?

Yes, I’ve run it for years. I’ve run it in different industries, in countless boardrooms, meetings, events, and shops. And I’m fucking good at it.

Please don’t be fooled by the big boobs, flowing hair, makeup, and smiles.

Being kind and compassionate doesn’t mean that I am just some little girl, dabbling. Continue reading “I Run the Boy’s Club”

A Real Date

A Real Date

I was 24 before I was ever taken on a real date.

Like the guy had it planned, picked me up at my house and took me out sort of date.

Yep, 24.

I had my first “official” boyfriend when I was 16, so that’s almost 10 years before meeting someone who was actually a gentleman and planned a date. Continue reading “A Real Date”

Going Through Some Shit

Going Through Some Shit

Real talk. I’ve been going through some shit lately.

Before you get all “Oh my gosh Jamie, WHAT’S WRONG”; please let me explain, nothing is wrong.

When I say, ‘going through some shit’, yes, I mean some not so easy realizations and decisions, which have led to lots of feelings, some darkness, and a lot of stress.
None of those are negative things though, friends! Continue reading “Going Through Some Shit”

Love You Forever

Love You Forever

Basically, when I love you once, a part of me loves you forever. It’s like a piece of my heart has a string that’s attached to yours. No matter where you go or what you’re doing, it’s attached.

I used to think this was weird or wrong, like I was “hanging on to things” or focusing on “what might have been” but what I’ve grown to understand is it is the exact opposite. Continue reading “Love You Forever”

Own What’s Attractive to You

Own What’s Attractive to You

OWN WHAT’S ATTRACTIVE TO YOU AND DON’T FEEL BAD ABOUT IT.

Real talk: I have no space for people who don’t follow through.

Like… I just can’t. I don’t understand the concept or how there are so many people who just don’t do things and are just totally okay with it, like that’s just normal.

Story Time

Story Time

He cornered me in the shop. Everyone else was going inside to go to bed; the party was over, it was after 2 am. He had barely spoken two words to me the whole night, a man that I used to believe wholeheartedly was mine forever. And he cornered me saying, “I need you to answer these questions.”

I was taken back by this. I remember thinking… REALLY? We’ve been going back and forth about this for 7 years now, and we need to talk about it AGAIN? You still have questions?! Continue reading “Story Time”

Keeping the Balance

Keeping the Balance

I struggle with keeping the balance. I know it’s possible because I DO create it. I know that I operate better when I’m in a place of balance but the truth is, I must work hard at it.

You see, my instinct is to work my fingers to the bone until I can’t stand any more.

That’s what I’ve always known. I come from a world of hard working, blue collar badasses who work from sun up to sun down and don’t ever complain once because they do what they gotta do.
