Hello New Followers


It appears I had a sudden surge in followers, up to 150 new ones. I apologize for your misguided procrastination which led you to this blog. Some overviews about me:

My name is Julia.

I was widowed at 28-Years Old

Through writing nonsense and excessive complaints, my grief journey is documented pretty extensively in the first year of widowhood. I started a week after my husband passed away.

My husband George and I met at Wilkes University in the Creative Writing Program. So keep your judgments to yourself. My writings are about him, and it was the only way at the time I knew to honor the love we shared. He loved my writing, whereas I was rather lazy about it. I didn’t begin writing consistently until he passed away.

George is my muse.

Through losing my husband, I worked on myself and have fully invested my efforts into self-bettering, self-worth, self-appreciation by discovering self-love.

I’ve lost 70 pounds from when George passed away to now through exercise and living a healthier life. Watching someone I love die from cancer does that.

I am a freelance fitness and nutrition writer now. I do personal training and group exercise classes for a steady paycheck. I’m no longer involved in college lacrosse coaching, but I still love the sport of lacrosse.

The love I shared with George has propelled me to live a better life. And though I’m living paycheck to paycheck and hustling hard. I am the happiest I have ever been, and I believe having met George and his strength has led me to this point.

I also have a problem with writing in the passive voice.

I love creative grammar. It’s my favorite part of writing.

Thank you for following my blog. Please try the Taco Diet. It’ll change your life, believe me.

I also like Trumpisms.
