I'm Speaking at Creative Mornings in Oakland!

UPDATE: Watch my speech below!

***Listen to my podcast about anxiety***

This Friday, Jan 26th I will be speaking about living with anxiety challenges and mental health for Creative Mornings. I HATE anxiety. Hate it. But my love for stopping mental health stigma by sharing my story is stronger. I'll also talk about facing our normal, everyday anxieties.

Registration opens this Monday at 11am. They go quick so make sure you sign up ASAP.

PMS + Moving = A Bad Combination

Marker And Tape Beside Box

I hate, hate, hate, hate moving. Boxes, tape, bubble wrap, ugh--can't stand any of it. Having PMS while moving doesn't help either. I scheduled my move around my period but Aunt Flow may visit earlier than expected (perfect timing Mother Nature). When you have PMS everything in life is amplified. The weather seems warmer than what the weatherman reports. Your boobs are sweaty and tender. Everything is crashing at once and everyone wants to mess with Y-O-U. When you're going through drawers and cabinets it seems like you have more junk in your apartment than you ever realized. Okay that's not PMS. I really did have too much stuff. Some Goodwill shopper will benefit from the tiger ears and tail I wore last Halloween. My junk pile probably would have been worse if I had a fulltime job. Where will Cocoa Fly rest her wings? I'll let you know when I get there. The process has been fairly smooth, with the exception of a little drama here and there. I'm moving soon and will not be blogging for a few days. Until then enjoy the Labor Day weekend. Mine will be super-absorbent busy with Always wings, Motrin and bubble wrap ;)
