I've been working in Sydney, Australia for the past couple days. Last night while walking around with a colleague named Sue, the subject of Aborigines came about. She compared Australian's treatment of them to America's treatment of Native Americans. I took the liberty of including African Americans and Mexicans into the conversation.…

I had a bad habit of staying in relationships too long. I stayed with my philandering first boyfriend because he knew secrets about me that I couldn't bear to get unleashed. I stayed with my ex-husband because I couldn't bear people talking about me behind my back being a failure in marriage.
All of these relationships lasted because I was afraid. Of embarrassment, of…

I told Ryan a week or so ago that I would start posting blogs on BFHS. At THAT time, I had a list of topics I would blog. Welp, that was then.

I'll admit to low grade Bieber fever. I'm not saying I thought about how cute I'd look in purple or that it irritated me that his "One Less Lonely Girl" is always white (I mean it's ok to dance "black" and sing "black" music to get white chicks, right? I digress as he has the right to serenade whom he pleases.) I won't ever admit to my eyes watering 4 times though.
My niece loved it and that's all that counts. She was hyped, screaming softly, oohing and aahing and dancing in her…
