Challenge #1: Cruise Mulholland Drive

51. Cruise Mulholland Drive: One of the world’s most famous scenic drives, and perhaps a great opportunity to meet someone fun. Make eyes at a light, stop at many of the crowded lookout points along the way to see the views and strike up a convo or take a break for lunch and cozy up to someone new. There are lots of possibilities and it’s a beautiful drive!

Okay. Really cruising around in a car is a tip to meet a new guy? I don't really have to talk to anyone? I don't have any forced interaction? I AM IN!

I chose this one because it was the easiest...let's be real. And I have been lacking on funds and time. So I cruised down Mullholland...and I made eyes at many men in many cars and this is what I encountered:

- An angry look from a guy's wife when I did the raise my eyebrows thing at her husband. Ya know this thing....

- A scared dude who sped away when I did the raise my eyebrows thing forgetting to maybe look inviting...

- I thought I would get a little racy...but naturally I accidently did this to a police officer:

Luckily, he seemed more interested in eating the hot dog he had in his hand than pulling me over for crude behavior. Wait..can you even be pulled over for that?

- When i finally did see my potential mate next to me, the light turned green and he sped away. But as the fates would have it, he pulled next to me a few minutes later, only to find me doing this:

It seems Mullholland Drive was a bust. On a scale of 1-10, 1 being "I WOULD HAVE BETTER LUCK FINDING A DUDE AT A LESBAIN BAR" to 10 being "I FOUND MY HUSBAND HERE", I would give cruising Mullholland Drive a 2.

I love Lent. I guess it is the Catholic martyr in me. I love the ashes, the fasting, the palms, and I love how you are forbidden to say “Alleluia!”. Oh, and the colors of Lent... black, purple, red...

I have this fear. This fear that someday someone will expose me for every horrible thing that I've ever done or dig up every skeleton that's in my closet. Someone will come along and say, "Toni Anita


It is nearly 7am on Monday, and I cannot move. No. It’s not "the Mondays". It’s depression. I have battled anxiety and depression my entire life. I have always bitten my nails; picked at my cuticles.
