So. My friend dared me to do something I'm afraid of while #socialdistancing. That would be a video of me singing, with no makeup, showing off my blonde eyebrows and eyelashes! I'm chillaxin during this quarantine. Catching up on cleaning, organizing and working/writing from home. If you're going to say something nasty in the comments because you don't like my messing up singing of June Carter's song. Fuck off. This is me being brave and vulnerable as we all are doing at this time. Now please excuse me, I'm late to make my boxed Mac n Cheese lunch. ❤️🧀 And yes. I have secret dimples. 😜
Hi. I have turned into a super cool cat during this staycation. I'm shouting out to Tweens, Millennials, Gen Z, idiots who think they are immune: read books, watch TV, put silly animal ears on your #selfie filter and protect our health care professionals who risk their lives to save ours everyday. #stayhealthy #stayhome #socialdistancing THIS IS REAL AND LET US ALL HEAL 🙏🏻😷
Ok. #stayhome #socialdistancing breathe. This is a photo from one of my favorite places @bigheartranch #flashbackfriday if you can donate to the ranch, it would be appreciated for all of their rescue animals. Soon we will be better we will hold hands again. #bestrong and enjoy boxed Mac & Cheese 🧀
So. It's valentines week.
Back in my day all the kids had to write a bullshit Valentine's Day card to everyone in the class. I never got one on purpose, everyone got a valentine card. No one ever gave me one and they thought I didn't need the attention. The kids and staff all laughed and thought everyone else should get one, being an actress since I was 3, apparently I didn't need one.
No one gave a thought I was helping my family pay bills. I was just the girl on the tv, it was just that their kid wasn't on tv.
This is challenging for me to post as people always contact me on social media saying oh my brother my sister went to school with you, you were best friends! False.
The kids were cruel. There is no need to harp on the past. But I still have scars from being thrown down stairs and slammed into lockers head first.
I write this to every child, teen, person, out there who is bullied. You are something. Do not put your value in someone else. Not letting them win, is your win.
So actually my valentines goes to three teachers who protected me and I think about to this day.
Mrs. Vollman (she let me eat lunch in her classroom so the kids wouldn't throw out my food or throw their food at me)
Mrs. Lighter (who helped me love learning and let me read books in her classroom)
Mr. Beckman (he saw I was a writer and challenged me, as a former college professor and wanted to see my writing succeed)
Thank you to you all. #Grateful for life.
