The Big Bang

It's been a while.  It truly has been a while.  I am typically great about telling you when I am taking a blogging break, but sometimes, life just comes at your fast.  At the end of January, life came at me hella fast.  Had it not been for the one blog post I had already written and set up to post, you would not have heard from me when you did.  But, I'm getting back to my feet and feeling more and more like my normal self.  

I know what you are thinking - what happened?!  Well, that's for me to know and for you to never find out.  There are some things in my life that I would rather keep personal and this is one of those times.  I've told the people who need to know and it will go no further than that.  But, let's get one to some fun stuff.  

I still have been active on my Instagram and Twitter pages.  I promised to keep you all updated on my weight loss madness that is happening and I've been trying to do so.  I don't want to turn into one of those people w…


So...for those of you who know me, you're trying to figure out who irked me and some of you might be ready to go to battle.  If you are new to The Plus Diaries, you're probably thinking "this blog is about to be lit".  Calm down.  This is just one of these moments and I don't have to come here (in this rage) often.  

I've been friends with *Lisa for more than 20 years.  We met in middle school and we instantly clicked.  I truly consider her to be one of my greatest friends and I honestly can't imagine my life without her.  This is why I was so hurt a few years ago when her life took a path none of us expected.  

Without going into too much detail, her path involved drugs, sex, and money.  Of course, plenty of lies were told too.  Hell, I was even in some of the lies.  I didn't know about that part until people were asking me if I was "OK" and I had a reaction people didn't expect.

Oh, we talked.  I mean, she's my friend and I needed to …

The Outsiders

It has been too much going on in the blogging world recently.  I mean, I know that any press is good press, but this might have been too much.  Then add it on top of that, you get people who don't blog chiming in talking about you're just doing it to get free stuff or get a real job or find something to do with your spare time.  Let me answer all three of those - I've been writing in The Plus Diaries for almost five years and have proudly made 25 dollars (by accident), I do work a full-time job with great benefits, and writing is just one of the things I do in my spare time.  For you nosey people, I also do crafts, travel, and currently studying for a couple of tests in my free time.  

Blogging is supposed to be fun!  That's why I got into it in the first place.  But trust me, I salute all the wonderful bloggers out there making money off their blogs.  That's awesome to me!  You are doing what you love and making money off it?  If the quote is true and they really l…
