There's no clear place to start telling the story of my whereabouts over the last few months. I know that I did everything "right." I followed "the rules" and I went through the "proper channels" and I still find myself laying awake at night wondering what the hell just happened to me. I pride myself … Continue reading Sudden death
Well, it certainly has been a while, hasn't it? Life has been more than a little exciting around Casa del Thomas, but rather than try to recap everything, I'm just going to jump in with the spring news. A few weeks ago, I was asked to help out with my beloved theater club, Stark Stage, … Continue reading Triumphant returns!
The sun isn't even up yet, and I've been awake for almost three hours. It was bugging me that I didn't have a blog post ready to go for this morning, and my brain wasn't going to let me sleep until I had something ready to offer the masses. So, I got out of bed, … Continue reading Deadlines to make
You may have noticed that I skipped a scheduled post. As it was Martin Luther King, Jr Day, I knew there wasn't a lot worth saying compared to his message. If anyone should be listened to or read on this day, it's definitely Dr. King, himself. If you've never heard the entire "I have a … Continue reading Skifahren? In Schferin?

With the announcement of my 2019 goals, it only makes sense to break these things down into monthly goals, right? Let's get right to it. Write 4 short stories - Oooh, this one is intimidating, but I'm excited to jump in and get started. There are absolutely no other qualifications aside from "short story." It … Continue reading January goals
The last few weeks of each year, I spend time in my head, exploring what I want to see happen during the coming year, and setting my intentions to make those dreams reality. It's not a resolution as much as it is being the captain of my own canoe. I don't want to let life … Continue reading The hustle begins
Welcome! It sure looks a lot different around here, but sometimes the best thing for your spirit is to just burn everything down and start over, right? To help me with this reboot of NicoleFordThomas.com, I called in my favorite experts at everything.

Before I get into the NaNo update, can I just take a minute to say--I am in a constant state of awe over the behavior of other people. Just when I think we've reached the bottom floor of the Crazy-vator, another level appears. People, there are sub-sub-sub-basements to humanity, and this year has been some … Continue reading Not the whore you’re looking for
You want an update on me? I am happy. I am at peace. I am super effing excited for the future. I go Wednesday to schedule my classes for next semester at Kent. Because I've been on probation for a thousandy years, I'm only allowed to come back part-time, but once I kick the crap … Continue reading Back in a flash
