There are few things in life I hate. Root canals. Puppy-kickers. Alarms clocks. But ranking on the top of the list is the word ROCKSTAR. I can’t stand that word.

I don’t cry often, but good grief… I got some dust in my eyes as I read THIS email (don’t tell anyone, m’kay?)— Jasmine, Six hours ago you changed. my. life.  I have posts now scheduled through Sunday.

Let’s be real: being on camera is hard.  Like, way hard. (Why am I talking like a 14-year-old at a Homecoming dance?)
