25 Ways You Know You're Constantly On The Hot Mess Express

25 Ways You Know You're Constantly On The Hot Mess Express

You're always running late but you always have your coffee.

All aboard the Hot Mess Express! For anyone who is never on time, always running late, coffee in one hand and phone in the other, you’ll understand this list. Even when you try to organize your life it somehow still manages to spin out of control. You’ve just learned to go with the flow and have accepted the fact you are never going to be ahead of the game. But hey, that’s life.

  1. Snoozing your alarm until the last possible second is a daily routine.
  2. Your hair is in the same bun from last night because you woke up late.
  3. Let’s be realistic, you’re probably still in the same makeup from last night.
  4. You can’t be bothered with looking all dressed up.
  5. And you dread the days when you actually have to look nice.
  6. You probably haven’t done laundry in close to a month and you’re wearing the pair of sweatpants you’ve had since middle school because that is all that is clean.
  7. You’ve had to brush your teeth in the shower, while peeing, or while getting dressed more than once.
  8. You never realize your clothes have holes or stains until it’s too late.
  9. If you have to be at work at 4 you are running into the door at exactly 4 with a coat, your phone, your phone charger, and a coffee in your hand.
  10. You’ve probably finished getting ready in a car more than once.
  11. If you ever get stranded in a car somewhere you hope it’s your car because you have 20 half drank water bottles on your floor.
  12. None of your school work is ever in the right folder, but hey, at least you try to take notes.
  13. You have the three-minute shower down to a science.
  14. You are a strong believer in the “sniff test” when it comes to your clothing.
  15. You are never on time for anything ever.
  16. You live out of your purse because your whole life is in there. You never know what you might forget when you go somewhere, so you always have a travel size one ready.
  17. What is matching clothing? Does that really exist?
  18. Your blood is 95% coffee.
  19. “Due tomorrow? Do tomorrow” is your life motto.
  20. “Has anyone seen my other shoe?!”
  21. You swear that some of your stuff has grown legs and just walked off, because you lose everything all the time.
  22. You constantly forget to eat so a lot of the time you’re eating in your car on the way somewhere, and the trash on your floor proves it.
  23. “Shit, I didn’t realize my gas light was on.”
  24. The speed limit is just a suggestion since you’re always running late.
  25. You forgot what your bedroom floor looks like because your room is probably a mess, just like your life.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
