RIP Robin Williams

Posted on August 15th, 2014

I've been avoiding writing this blog post, but I know it's one I need to write. By now, everyone knows that Robin Williams passed away earlier this week. And by now, we all know that it was suicide and that he'd had some physical and mental...

Life Update

Posted on June 24th, 2014

Ok, so I know... it's pretty much been an unfortunate amount of time since I last blogged. But I've really had a lot going on! So, I thought I would give you all a "life update" blog in case you were interested. My last update was in May, so...

Are We Alone?

Posted on April 16th, 2014

This is really just a follow up to my last post. The day after I posted it, I was listening to this song, and it really seemed to reflect some of the thoughts I had while writing that last post. Just as a bit of a disclaimer, I really don't...

Communication And The Lack Thereof

Posted on April 14th, 2014

I've been doing some thinking lately. I tend to spend too much time thinking sometimes. But lately, I've been thinking about people and relationships and communication. People are pretty interesting, especially in how they communicate and how...

What is girl vs planet?

Posted on April 11th, 2014

I started this blog because... well, I've pretty much always had a blog. Since I've known what one was, I've had one. I started out years ago with Xanga, basically writing whatever I wanted, however short or long of a post I wanted. In some...

Phoenix Film Festival Review: The Trouble With The Truth

Posted on April 8th, 2014

I'm not sure, but this could possibly end up being my favorite film of the festival this year. It's definitely in the top three. It's funny, because The Trouble With The Truth is a simple movie, but also quite complicated. The majority of the...

Flashback: Heroes In My World

Posted on March 21st, 2014

]Taking a bit of a break from the Phoenix Film Festival posts and everything else that has been going on lately. Today it’s been five years since my dad passed away. A while ago (and a different blog ago), I started a series of blog posts called...

Things To Come

Posted on March 19th, 2014

Ok, so I realize that I haven’t really blogged too much in a while, and definitely not on a regular basis for a little while. But that is going to change. There are some things in the mix that you’ll soon get to see more of around here. So far,...

Why I Quit Facebook (For Now)

Posted on January 12th, 2014

As mentioned in the last post, I didn’t really make any new year’s resolutions this year. But I do kind of have things in my head that I want to strive for this year, as well as ways I’d like to see things going or changing. They may not be...

My New Year's Resolutions And Why I Don't Make Them

Posted on January 9th, 2014

I wasn’t going to blog about this right now, because I’m afraid of talking about it to people and then failing again and feeling like even more of a failure because people knew. But then I started to make a Facebook group post about it, and it...

I Just Want To Be Me

Posted on November 18th, 2013

I’ve been going through kind of a hard time the last week or so. I’m sure if you know me well enough or follow me on my blog or Facebook or Twitter, you can probably guess at least some of it. (For a hint, all you really have to do is read my...

I Failed Again

Posted on November 12th, 2013

I feel like I’m a very honest blogger. When I blog, it’s usually about what is on my mind at the time. And I don’t usually have any qualms about sharing what I’m feeling. So that’s what this post is going to be about. I had a good weekend. I...

Yeah, I Did That

Posted on November 6th, 2013

In order to fully participate in NaBloPoMo, I decided to check out some of the blogs of other participants. There’s a huge list on BlogHer.com. All the blogs you could ever want to read! I found some good ones and some that didn’t really...

Seeking Spirituality

Posted on November 4th, 2013

This will be a very honest post, and may offend some people. It’s what I thought about posting today, and I became a little less clear about it just now based on a link I found on Facebook that a relative of mine posted. But I’m still going to...

A Time For New Commitments

Posted on November 2nd, 2013

I’m not really sure exactly how this blog post will end up, but honestly I had trouble thinking of something to write about. So at least I now have somewhere to start. If you go back to what I believe was my first blog post as “girl vs planet",...

Going Home

Posted on October 30th, 2013

When you move out of your parents’ house for the first time, you start to acknowledge a new feeling that you’ve never had up until that point. Going home is never the same again. It’s still “going home", but it’s not really home anymore,...

Why I Hate Being Fat

Posted on September 29th, 2013

I think this post has been a long time coming. I know it’s been rattling around in my head in the shape of a blog post for a couple of weeks now, and before then… Well, it’s been my life for as long as I can remember. I hate that I think about...

A Healthy Lifestyle Change

Posted on August 2nd, 2013

For years, I have tried to lose weight. I suck at it. As a teenager, I was pretty overweight, and then somehow in my early twenties I managed to lose about 60 pounds or so. In the last five years, I’ve gained most of that 60 pounds back...

I'm A Tiny Ninja Hider Apprentice!

Posted on July 24th, 2013

So today I got asked about the tiny ninja hiding. And I had a feeling that since I will be posting more tiny ninja photos on Instagram, I will probably get asked more questions about them. So… I figured the story would make a good blog post....

It's Been A Year Now

Posted on June 17th, 2013

So Ricky and I have officially lived in “the Valley" for over a year now. We first moved out here over Memorial Day weekend in 2012. It’s weird, because a lot of times it still doesn’t feel like we live here. I guess if you’ve lived in pretty...

Soundtrack Of My Life

Posted on June 12th, 2013

The other day on my drive home from work (I have about a 35 minute drive each way now), I was listening to Spotify, as I do most of the time on my commute. Well, actually, initially I was listening to the radio in my car. I had made a stop on...

Hey You.

Posted on April 11th, 2013

Yeah, you out there. Reading this post. I just think you should know something. You are great. Yep, you. You’re awesome, really fabulous. Don’t think I’m talking about you? Well, I am. I know how you feel, and I thought you should know...

In Which I Talk About Everything

Posted on February 13th, 2013

So, I’m trying to blog more. And honestly, I’m not really one to just make up something to blog about. The mood has to strike me and something has to seem right for me to really want to blog about it enough to actually, well, sit down and write...

101 Things That Make Me Happy

Posted on December 21st, 2012

I’ve been struggling with some things lately - a bit of depression, a bit of frustration about the way things are, and a lot of frustration with myself. I just have this habit of looking around me at things and seeing how other people are that...

One girl. One planet. One experience at a time.
