Did you know today is the first anniversary of Is This Thing On?  Yeah, my baby is growing up.  I know what you’re thinking:  How did we all survive prior to its existence?  I mean, where else were you getting advice on lip gloss and a running commentary on the genius of Tina Fey?  You’re welcome.


This also marks one year that I’ve been back in California, which is pretty fucking rad, too. Some advice from me to you: if you are sitting in an airport terminal unemployed, broken-hearted and freakishly skinny and sleep-deprived, starting a blog is an excellent way to pass the time until your flight boards.  Again, you’re welcome.


The last year has had some down moments and dark times for sure, but I would say more days than not I look around and think, “Holy shit, I know some cool people!” and I am amazed at how putting my trust out there has been rewarded with new friends and incredible opportunities.  And each day makes it clearer that this is where I am supposed to be.  Where I want to be. 


Thank you for the great comments, encouragement and blog fodder, dear friends and family.  You rule.

  1. Well, being that this is you’re first year anniversary the traditional gift would be paper. However, as I am trying to promote a greener planet I will simply give you e-paper. I’m not sure what e-paper is or what it looks like but you’re welcome. Happy Anniversary!

  2. Ah, my tree hugging ways have rubbed off on you! Excellent! I think the comment/email qualifies as e-paper so you’re good to go, Kiddo.

    Thanks for the love!

  3. As usual, love reading your blog. Happy Anniversary /return to California!!! Your pep inspires me and I love reading your happiness (the obsession with the lip gloss is very funny to me – and knowing me you probably understand that). Cheers!

  4. Aw, thanks G! Your encouragement means a lot. And yes, I get why the lip gloss obsession would be a source of amusement, silly girl!

  5. It’s been over a year since I’ve seen you. Bummer. But I am so glad you have found your happy. Without out, how would I know what scarf to wear with the plaid skirt.

  6. It is a bummer it’s been a year since we hung out, but I think we “talk” more now than when we lived a few miles down the highway from each other! Sucks for planning a trip to get pedicures and wine, still great for my soul. And I am grateful for that.
