When Lucy Merkin was young, she didn’t crush on the usual Tiger Beat poster boys. Instead she carried around a frayed copy of Time Magazine with comedian Benjamin Wright on the cover. Already in his forties when she was in high school, she knew that her crush was unusual, but his sense of humor and dashing good looks made him irresistible to her.

My big fat Roller Derby Dreams

Image
I have two dreams in this world. One is to be a best selling author who makes enough from selling books to be able to make it my career. The other is to be play Roller Derby. 
Yes, you read that correctly. I want to be a Derby Girl. I've dreamed of this for years and my main goal for 2018 is going to be to make it as Fresh Meat on a local team. Below are the basic rules of Flat Track Roller Derby.

Last year I went all out, bought the skates, pads and helmet, went to the rink to practice, read everything I could get my hands on about the game, watched bouts online and in person. I immersed myself in Roller Derby...then I let it fade away. As I do so many of my dreams.

Hello my lovelies!

So today I'm going to take a minute to share my February goals with you and show you part of my layout for my Bullet Journal. Last month, I finally shared my journal with you all and I'd like to keep that conversation going throughout the year.

 My theme for February is CandyLand. It just seemed like such a fun, bright, colorful thing to do in the middle of a dreary Michigan winter, and I've had a lot of fun creating these pages for it. A lot of journalists pick a word of the year as something they want to strive for to achieve. Their purpose when they get up every day. I get bored too easily to have one purpose every day. So I am doing a different word every month.



This month, as you can see over there, is Optimism. I have a terrible habit of being pessimistic and this month I really want to focus on improving my attitude.
My Habit Tracker (right) is honestly my favorite page every month. And I tend to just keep add…
