About the Author

About MeSarah is a twenty-something wine connoisseur, former college cheerleader, professional writer and competitive cheer coach (the only “real-life” facet in which she uses her master’s in sport psychology), and current (very proud) cat lady. She is a gregarious Vanderbilt alumna with an affinity for writing all sorts of nonsense, though she is willing to put old SEC grudges to bed for those *other* alumni who share a passion for activism, sports/ fitness or randomly lifting heavy objects, videos of persnickety felines, and/or scientific research (aforementioned requirements waived for anyone willing to cook for her).

If none of those happen to be your jam, connect with her anyway: she’s confident the two of you can find something of interest to discuss. As of late, she is working hard on writing authentically about some of the harder aspects of life in the hope that her experiences might be a source of strength and solidarity for others.

“Write hard and clear about what hurts.”–Ernest Hemingway

  1. Love the quote by Bill Nye. Aren’t we fortunate then to have so many divine avenues to meet up!

    I remember watching a Rosie O’Donnell show where she was plugging a children’s book I believe she wrote. It’s entitled…”People Are Punny.” I have heard myself repeat this to myself many times.

    Let’s add:

    ….’in the most delightful way’ from Mary Poppins.

    So, “People are Punny In the Most Delightful Way!”

    I love people with or without libation!

    1. Thank you for adding that perspective! I, too, find that I quite frequently repeat the phrase “people are funny” (along with “men are funny,” but that comes from a different set of stories entirely!). Even though “funny” may sometimes turn to “mean-spirited,””rude,” or “inconsiderate,” I believe it is this very diversity of experiences and personalities that enriches the lives of all with whom we come in contact–even if those interactions are not always as positive as we might wish.
