Yeah. Shit's rough!

Mornings can be deceiving sometimes. Today I woke up, got dressed…made a little breakfast. The birds were singing. You know what I mean: all was right as rain.

And then the fucking switch flipped, and I became AssasinVar. Continue reading


Our Most Gracious Thank You

18 Jun

Wow! Sara and I are chillaxing at our graphic designer friend’s house in total nostalgia.  I can’t believe it’s been a month already. How about you, Sara?

Sara: Right, and a helluva month at that! Thanks to our readers we’ve begun talking about things that really matter. We’ve begun to build a community. And thanks to our contributors, we’ve found that we’re not alone  in our struggle to navigate our 30s.

LeVar: Sara, do you remember that first post? GC33, what a brave soul you were. I <3 your face. Then we got the woman’s perspective on expectations from Kelly. I just wanna keep her in my pocket to give her x’s and o’s all day long.

Sara: It sure was nice to know that we weren’t alone in our questions.

And do you remember Alison’s moment where at her sister’s high school graduation, she realized that she was old enough to be her mother? Or when the Professor shared what it was like to be leaving his 30s? Or what it’s like for Lorrie as a mom in her 30s.

Or me, entering my 30s. All in the last month. Whew.

LeVar: Yes, yes, yes, and yes. I’m still in awe over Ryan and his commitment to not drinking. Oh, and we will definitely never forget about Party Girl. Can I just live in her shoes for a week I’m sure my legs would look great in her 5 inch heels and a mini dress.

ED, you can unleash that 16 year old anytime you want. *wink*  Adam…”I can still party like I’m 21, but for the two day hangover.” Let’s just say Sara’s 30th last weekend has got to be a testament to that.

Sara: So true! So very true. Thanks for the warning Adam, sorry I didn’t heed it.

LeVar: I don’t know. In all this rambling what we’re trying to say is that we are deeply grateful and overjoyed by all of you and the unconditional support from great friends, talented contributors and this fearless community.

Sara: So thank you, readers. Thank you contributors. Thank you Var for crafting and curating this blog with me.  We had over 3000 unique viewers this past month. Let’s see what we can do from here on out.

The Other Side

18 May

*big eyes*

Holy fuck. I turn 30 in exactly 27 days.

Isn’t there a movie about zombies and 27 days? Pretty sure there is. No, that’s 28 days. Great, the zombie apocalypse is already upon me, but I digress.

It may take a boatload of Xanax to get me through the next 27 days. Or maybe I’m just overreacting.

I’ve heard that for the ladies, turning 30 is an emotional birthday. All sorts of questions about marriage, babies, 401ks, and grand life plans come up. And I can tell you right now, I don’t exactly have definitive answers to those questions right now.

Maybe in the next 27 days it’ll all become clear. But I doubt it.

How about you? What was it like hitting the big 3-0? Was it the precursor to that impending mid-life crisis? Or was it really no big deal?
