I'm sat in the hall with the Exalted Council. It’s a shit show. Neither Ambassador is truly on our side and even Josephine, bless her diplomatic heart, can barely keep up with them. I can’t help but let my head slide tantalisingly close to the desk in front of me. If I just started whacking my forehead against it maybe all of this needless banter and debate would stop.
After 55 years of being by his side every day, being apart was more than she could handle when my dad became ill. The post Is it Possible to Die of a Broken Heart? appeared first on The Good Men Project.
Heather Weidmann was horrified Friday morning when she saw a footage on Facebook of a South Side cat getting scalded with boiling water. “I cried my eyes out, it’s horrible,” the construction worker said Friday night. “Who’s going to help this cat?” The Humboldt Park resident said she has 16 years’...
Q: My husband and I got married in the fall of last year, but unfortunately I have nothing but bad memories of the planning process and the wedding itself. I let family pressures from both sides get to me, and the arguments we had over...Show More Summary

Valencia boss Gary Neville says he was put through one of his "worst experiences" in football as his side lost 7-0 to Barcelona.
I mean no disrespect to my Australian hosts when I say that I've seen this all before. The details differ, but the same underlying themes emerge. And when stories are placed side by side, it can be confusing to the public.In Australia,...Show More Summary
What a time to be alive. You can now draft your three-dog side for this Sunday’s Puppy Bowl. Choose from all the competitors listed here, and I’m going to kick your ass because my team is the best. Read more...
I'm afraid. Always, a knot resides in my chest. A heaviness, a sense of impending doom that I try to control or deny. It's a daily unconscious routine of sweeping the crumbs of fear scattered wherever I walk. Sometimes I can avoid them like landmines, moving with such care trying not to disturb these fragile thoughts. Show More Summary
So we’re jumping back into our weekly DIY sessions with something on the easy side (My brain is still in holiday mode and can’t quite handle anything too complicated) so I thought I’d give this super cute planter tutorial a whirl. I’ve seen these little guys on Pinterest, Etsy and at my local markets and […]
If it wasn’t for my discontent, I would’ve stayed stuck in a job I loathed wondering what life looks like on the other side.

When you don’t see me, it doesn’t mean you aren’t on my mind. Often times I leave your side begrudgingly, at best. Perhaps I’m being forced to take five or grab a snack by a fellow nurse down in the trenches, that sees my jaw is tightened and my eyes, entranced. Show More Summary
The Iowa results on the Democratic side perfectly reflected my own fence-sitting sentiments — basically a tie with a slight lean toward Hillary Clinton. Maybe the primaries will still be important by the time I get to vote on the Ides of March! Trump’s loser speech was as short as his stubby, vulgarian fingers since […]
Throughout my entire life, I've always had a second job, and all of them have included direct interaction with other people. And I thoroughly enjoy human interaction. Not only is it additional income, but it also provides me an ongoing opportunity to observe and understand human nature. This is an...
I've already shared my thoughts on the results of the Republican contest. On the Democratic side, I think Hillary seems to have done what she needed to do - not lose. We don't know the final results yet. But it seems like she'll likely hold on to her minuscule lead. Show More Summary
All good things must come to an end. But look on the bright side, chucking your cosmetics is a good excuse to go buy more.
2015 proved to be extremely busy, it leaned so heavily on the busy side that it stretched thin my energy, motivation and inspiration. Sadly, 2016 wasn’t up for a good start either. Actually, if I had any quarrels with the past year I didn’t anticipate the beginning of the new one. Show More Summary
In the name of rescuing Illinois from a sea of red ink, Gov. Bruce Rauner proposes what was called, in the schoolyards of my youth, "a fair fight." The rules were simple: anything goes, provided neither side has a baseball bat or brass knuckles. As long as that condition was met, onlookers would...
Yesterday. Playing with reflection as I consider once again the role of alignment in composition. Also quite mesmerized by the lines in my own hands. And a little side trip, continued from here...a little longer cloth, long cloths develop differently...
