30 Things To Do When You’re Burned Out Before 30

In a little over 7 months, I’ll be turning 30 years old. Ugh. Honestly, the thought terrifies me. I’ve been avoiding it for almost three decades, but here we are. Funny how time works. But here’s the rub, I’ve burned the fuck out. You might ask yourself–what problems could a 29-year-old really have? I mean,…

Rape, Romance, and New Year’s Eve

Earlier this week, I woke up to find myself completely naked in bed and spooning a quesadilla. Yeah, like the cheese-filled, delicious kind. I had zero memory of the night before, why I hadn’t made it entirely through changing into pajamas, or why I’d gone to bed with a plate full of quesadillas. What I…

I Fell in Love with the Fat Girl

[This post originally started as an open discussion in my Robinson’s Ramblings Reader Group on Facebook. To see further expansion on the topic, join my tribe of bad ass women here!]   Since foraying into the dating world after my separation and upcoming divorce, I’ve realized a few things about myself that I didn’t even…

2018: The Year of “It’s Okay”

A year ago today, I was traveling alone to Vermont. It was the first time I’d ever taken a solo trip just by myself and for myself. Honestly, it was one of the best weeks of my life.   I’d spent the previous six December’s anxiously watching the calendar tick down to December 31st. To…

Me, Too

Trigger Warning: This post contains discussions on sexual assault. Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past few days, you’ve seen friends and family members posting “Me, Too” on their social media profiles. Sometimes, that’s all they post. Sometimes, they share more. Sometimes, they share it all. #MeToo is a grassroots movement where victims…

When Marching Isn’t Enough…

I know, I know. With a title like that, this post could be going any direction, right? Well, stick with me ’til the end and you can decide for yourself. Today, myself and half a million other women (and men!) marched in Washington, DC (and millions of others around the globe) for women’s rights. The experience…

Healing In A Moment: My Vermont Trip

It’s always a sobering and awe-inspiring moment for me when I look back and see how all the puzzle pieces fell in just such a way to create our lives how they were always meant to be. It’s no secret that New Year’s Day is a tough anniversary for me. I’ve been open about why…

2017: The Year of ‘Me First’

  On the last day of 2016, I stood in the center of the Burlington Earth Clock and thought about time. Seems obvious, I know, but stick with me. In (corny) truth, it really was the perfect setting for considering the time behind me and the time stretched out ahead. 2016 was, by far, one…

I Have No Answers…But I’ll Find Them

I want to start this post by saying…I’m sorry. You deserve better from me, as my readers and my friends and my family. I also want to say that this post is going to be long, maybe sad, and there isn’t an “I’ll try harder” or “I’ll do better” at the end. There’s just me…
