About Me

Who I am:

I am a grounded dreamer who believes in herself and periodically feels insecure.   I have a PhD in procrastination.  I live in central PA.  I’m a legal secretary by day and a wife, cook, Director of Our Home, creative-wanna-be by night.  While I am sleeping, I dream about being a jewelry designer, writer, photographer, creative Martha-Stewart-worthy genius, and interior designer.  I analyze things too much.  I’m a perfectionist.  I will do just about anything to eat a piece of chocolate cake.

Why I am writing this blog:

This blog is about me finally, for real, no I’m serious this time, no this time I really mean it – getting. the shit. done. And not just in regards to writing this blog, but in doing ALL of the things I want to do, talk about doing, think about doing, and dream about doing.  It’s about escaping my jail term in the cubicle, once and for all.  I’m 43.  I think I’m eligible for parole.

Why now:

Due to a recent mysterious injury involving my hand, I had time off the dreadful day job to contemplate what I’m doing with my life.  And here are the results of said contemplation:   I’m stuck in a rut, stuck in my job, and stuck in a town I don’t like.  I guess you could say more simply: I’m stuck.  I feel like this time off work is a do or die moment.  Like I said, I’m 43 and dying is not on my bucket list.

Why I need You:

I welcome and appreciate your comments.  I would love to hear your stories, struggles, and successes with similar issues.  I want this blog to be a conversation for all of us to support each other on the things that get in all of our ways to creating the life we want.  Thank you for your support!

    Dear Cubicle Lady,

    I feel your pain. I don’t even have a cubicle! That would be a step up for me. I used to have an office. Now I sit at the front desk. As you know very well, there is not an iota of privacy and it’s akin to being in a fishbowl.
    At night I dream about not having gastritis and reminisce about the good old days of not having stomach pain. You are “43” and I am + 6 years of whatever you are today (LOL). I love 70’s and 80’s music, chocolate anything, and photography. I also have a fake tooth in the front of my mouth. I have never met you but something tells me that we may have a lot in common. Right now I need to go to the bathroom so I can leave work on time and don’t miss my bus. We are all in this together. We will rise!! Amen. and a boomshakalaka…
