There are some jobs that I just have a hard time taking serious. That's not to say I'm right, you understand. For a long time I refused to accept Social Media Manager as a vocation, and now it's how I pay the bills. But then there are times that I am right, like when people … Continue reading Internet Airball #1: “I’m Your Content Calendar for Your Online Coaching Business, and I’m Going on Strike”
For someone who is filled with anxiety and self-doubt and is irrationally self-conscious, I am really making some big things happen... in my head. If you ask my imagination I'm practically a best selling author and everyone wants to work with me. I also just hosted Saturday Night Live with Jake Gyllenhaal. Did I mention … Continue reading Internet Airballs
Here's one for you. So my husband decided to invite my FIL (you've been reading long enough to know that FIL stands for Father-In-Law, right? Cool) to dinner. Fine. He comes over and is all nice and has been being all nice lately and you want to know why? It's because he's in a fight … Continue reading 60-Year-Old Kids Do The Darndest Things
If I had to use a story to adequately depict my life, it would be the one about the time I was in high school and had a huge crush on a guy named Albert who was super popular and a star varsity basketball player but had to settle for his twin brother who was … Continue reading Dress For Whatever Job
It's no secret that I hate influencers. What's to like? Think of that one guy and/or girl from high school that you wanted to punch in the face daily. Well get ready to double up on that clenched fist because those same assholes that tricked people into thinking they were cool are now GETTING PAID … Continue reading It’s National Power Rangers Day so here’s a story about my 25+ year grudge with McDonald’s and my hometown all because of Tommy.
"Sometimes in life, you gotta eat a lotta shit." No wait, this one's better: "Life is just one all-you-can-eat shit show." I'm on a Marvelous Mrs. Maisel kick and I couldn't have started watching this show at a better time. Being an adult right now is terrible. Nothing at all like what I imagined, which … Continue reading “I’m Right On Top of That, Rose!”
Nothing makes me happier than knowing I'm not the only one who adopted the personality of a fictional character when I was a kid (it's been a long year so it takes very little). For Mia Mercado, it was Annie. For me, it was Wednesday Addams. I also enjoy relating to someone on the ridiculousness … Continue reading Review: Weird But Normal | Mia Mercado
Other than my niece, I don't like kids. I'm genuinely mystified when I hear someone say "I love kids!" I just don't get it. Kids scream. They want to touch your stuff. They have cooler toys today than I ever did and yet they still want to play with an iPhone. Wait until it turns … Continue reading I would like to give this inheritance back, please.
Hi hello! How was your week? Awesome, here's what happened to me. So, according to my husband, our roof is rapidly deteriorating. To me, that sounds like a colossal exaggeration. I don't ever look at our roof when I drive up to the house but if shingles aren't flying at my windshield then how bad … Continue reading This Week on Typical Jenn
Other than books, video games have been a much-needed escape for me, particularly the ones where I'm killing zombies and saving humanity. Video games get a bad rap, often being referred to as "time-wasting" and "mindless". Obviously, I would hardly call them "time-wasting". This is 2020; if you're not prepared for anything - and I … Continue reading Review: Ready Player One | Ernest Cline
