Ep 16: Are you a chili cooker or a pizza orderer?

This episode and this concept is brought to you by an old boyfriend, who (I think?) made up this analogy and it contributed to the end of our relationship and also has stayed with me as a major life question and metaphor.

Ep 13: Who do you tell?

Ep 13: Who do you tell?

Today’s topic - like many of these prompts - will either give you a buzz of excitement or a lump in your throat. I am aware that lots of things that we talk about on this show can fall either way.

Today is one of those, I think, and believe when I say that I’ve been on both sides of this one.

Ep 9: 10 Ways to journal

On every episode of this show, I have encouraged you to take the topics and prompts to your journal. And maybe you glossed over that part, because you don’t keep a journal.

So this is the first in that series and we’re looking back at the formative era of pre-pubescent literature that is Judy Blume.

Ep 3: Where do you live?

This is one of the most basic, get-to-know-you questions, and the answer can vary. Our country, state, city, and neighborhood all say something about us, whether we like it or not. 

On today's episode, we're not just talking about our zip codes, we're talking about how our location is currently affecting who we are. 

I live in Los Angeles, so I have 10 Things To Tell You about my little pocket of L.A.
