Realization #1 – Diane Farr is a bad-ass bitch.

I’m a compulsive researcher. Whenever faced with a dilemma, I turn to Google to impart its infinite wisdom onto me:

How do I get over my douchebag ex-boyfriend? How many calories in a tub of Ben and Jerry’s? When will my ovaries start shriveling up? WHEN, GOOGLE? WHEN!?

Just kidding. Sort of. (P.S. Chunky Monkey = 1,200 calories.)

As I perused the internet on Friday night, after establishing that I would not be out getting white-girl wasted and mingling with all the fine single men of Toronto, I stumbled across this gem:


Please watch my new heartbreak hero, Diane Farr. All I ask if for to watch it to the 1:50 mark, so you can get to this part:

Single. Picked the wrong guy. Gave him the wrong finger.

Um, how amazing is she?

This is when I realized, not even a charismatic, beautiful, famous actress can escape the reality that sometimes you’re just going to get your heart smashed to pieces if you put it out there.

I have two choices: I can go on being a bitter bitch, or I can begin my journey to becoming an independent, bad-ass bitch.

Because to be quite honest, I haven’t actually been single for more than a few days in over a decade. Which brings me to my next realization… (Stay tuned for Part 2!)

    Diane Farr handled the breakup pretty well, especially with the new announcement cards. But you know, you could give it some time before you start seriously dating again. and you know, i bet it’ll sound pretty amazing in hearing about your journey becoming an independent, bad-ass bitch.

    Thank you for sharing! I didn’t know her story either and it is inspiring. I took an intentional year off from dating to find myself too. I think it helps put things into perspective, like Diane mentioned. It allows you to discover what *you* really need and want without the distractions of someone else.

    I’m looking forward to your future posts. πŸ™‚

    I nominated you for this blog award: https://acanadianinshanghai.wordpress.com/2015/01/13/the-versatile-blogger-award/?preview=true&preview_id=708

    I honestly think these awards are just a marketing gimmick to get ur blog out there…But I have trouble saying “No” to people, so I did it.

    Don’t feel obligated to do this too! I figured as annoying as it may be, it is an great opportunity to let you know that your writing is so engaging, and I read ur blog everyday! Nothing wrong with that right? πŸ˜€

    P.S. I’m glad you’re on your way to being an independent bad ass bitch! πŸ™‚

      Thanks! I’m not really quite sure how this works although I’m honoured!

      I really appreciate the kind words and support. πŸ™‚ I’m also glad I’m on my way, although I think there may be a few more hiccups in my journey before I’m as bad-ass as Diane Farr!

    I read your Start Here, but I don’t have time in one night to read every post between then and now. Sorry about the heartbreak. That sucks. I love Diane Farr’s solution to her breakup. She took her life back in a positive way.

    Chunky Monkey is on my list of favorite ice creams. I try not to look at the calories, because I eat ice cream every day, with the rare exception for decadent chocolate cake. I love how open and vulnerable you are – putting yourself out here on the blogosphere, and I like the way you write.
