Omg. The worst is when a stranger reaches out to let you know that a friend (or family member!!) has volunteered your time without asking you. Because then you look like a jerk for not responding or saying no.

Currently over a dozen requests in my inboxes for people wanting to "pick my brain" this week. Folks, I'm honored to be a resource, but by the time I'm done with my *paid* work for the day, I want to rest, not work more, for free.

warm take: public proposals are awful and force women into a position of saying yes when MAYBE THEY NEED SOME TIME TO THINK ABOUT IT

It looks like my cell phone number is listed for Belk Library on all the major phone book websites! So weird! I've been trying to take it down but not having much luck. Much appreciated if you wouldn't mind helping me correct the record :)

Rio found this stuffed animal on our walk today and carried it all the way home. This pupper ain’t got no time for litter.

Yesterday I changed one person's mind on NFL players kneeling. It was through a face-to-face convo, not online. I know it's hard to want to talk to people about issues in person, but white people: We need to do this. This is our burden.

Hey y’all! After chatting with a follower who’s deaf, I’ve downloaded an app to add captions to future videos. If you have ideas or requests for other ways I can help with accessibility issues, please comment or dm me. I want to do my best to make the dog team accessible to all.

Anyway, all this to say, I'm with you. It sucks. I'm rooting for you & you'll get through it. When you're done, I'll send you a very cool (but ultimately anticlimactic) popup CONGRATULATIONS!!! card (w/ or w/o confetti, your choice), even if it takes 100 years and USPS is dead.

... for hearing people get told off for doing stupid things with money. Someone will say, "I make $40,000 a year and I have $200,000 in debt, can I buy this $30,000 car?" and he goes "NO! That's dumb. Next caller." But every story about debt is so personal.

Should clarify here that I don't mean you're doing something wrong by not paying off $1 million of debt in <5 years. Those articles are so disheartening. It's funny how 6-figure income folks seem to have the most debt, no? Dave Ramsey's podcast is pretty great (cont...)

Here’s a fun question: What’s your favorite secret place you want to keep for yourself, one you’ll never write about or geo-tag on Instagram to keep it crowd-free? Describe it without…

TFW one of your all-time favorite writers makes you a video of signing your digital audiobook with her voice. Day. Made.

Oh my god. You just made my day. Also my week, month, and year. Is it too much fangirling to say that I love you and all the things you have written? Thank you :)

Could you please add Denver/Boulder/Colorado/any intermountain West city to your next tour? Will road trip for signed copies. Also, how can you autograph my audiobook? 🤔 signed my Kindle once (reluctantly, I think), but I cannot guarantee the safety of my iPhone...

Taking a trip somewhere. Travel seems like the epitome of freedom, especially when it involves breaking the shackles of student loan debt. Also, CONGRATS!

Only problem is that we don't have any real beaches in Colorado :( But we can def. do a bonfire (or at least a nice campfire) once fire bans are lifted!
