Never was a Cornflake Girl…

Who is Raisin Girl?

I’m almost 30 and sometimes that scares me.  Not because 30 is old, but because damn aren’t you supposed to know who you are and what you are doing with your life by then??  I don’t and it freaks me out.

I’m divorced and have two beautiful children.  My ex husband is a recovering alcoholic.  I have Borderline Personality Disorder.  I have started a therapy fund for our kids.  These may be topics in the blog.  Also, I’m dating again.  It’s a fucking nightmare, but in general I’ve always enjoyed the adrenaline rush I get from a nightmare and I find dating exciting and thrilling in the same vomit-inducing way.

I’m liberal.  I rant.  I live in the South.  Since the divorce I have moved back to my hometown in central Mississippi, though Memphis will always be home to me, regardless of how much time I’ve spent living here vs. there.

I love coffee and the smell of rain on concrete.  I’m not a huge fan of country music but I dig Randy Travis for some reason.  I like indie films.  I hate waking up early.

My name comes from a Tori Amos song, Cornflake Girl.  Look it up.  I love Tori Amos and if I don’t have music in my life every single day I will go insane.

Hey woman…
I’ve read your blogs, and it’s strange… I’ve missed em ha! I don’t know much about your life other than what I’ve learned from blogs and in more ways than not, you and I are complete opposites. It’s insane, knowing that, how many things we have in common. Is that completely contradictory? Anyway- I know your life is a rollercoaster right now- I hope the things that have you down soon pick you back up- and I hope something brings the zest back to your days….
Just wanted to let you know I’ve been reading. I’m sure you have close friends… but if the occaision calls… I’m here to talk to!

Thanks, Courtney. You always make me laugh and I appreciate the support. I’d love for you and your husband to drive up one weekend and go out with us! It’d be interesting to meet in “real life” – the only other myspace friend I’ve met in real life is my girl from Nashville, my BFF Beth. She’s great. I’d love to hear what we have in common as well as how we’re different. Alice Walker says we’re all more alike than we are different, no matter what we really think.

Thank you for not only reading, but letting me know you’re here!

Oooh I wanna take a photography class too! I’m fascinated by your writing. Your life is SO much more interesting than mine… lol

Oh Manna, thanks so much. I really believe we all have an untold story inside of us, ya know? Some people just like to talk about themselves more than others, and I guess I’m one of those self-centered people who just can’t stop examining herself, analyzing my own behaviors and thoughts. I wish I was much better at expressing them. Kris, he’s the one who writes so brilliantly! I envy people like that!

Also, I need to update this “about me” because it’s two years old!

it’s bad ass mofo. but yep. truth.

This is my old blog. New one can be found at

Thanks again.
