Hi.

Welcome to my blog! I started this blog because I miss writing. And I miss being creative. And this is how I'm choosing to spend my very limited "free"time these days... writing about things that matter to me and are worth all of the fucks that I have to give. 

What Does DGAF Mean?

What Does DGAF Mean?

It's simple. DGAF is an abbreviation for the term, "don't give a fuck." 

But how it's used in context is where the benefits of abbreviating it come in handy. Before I was a mom, I might use it in a sentence like this: "It's Friday, it's 5:30, I'm DONE with my work for the day, and I just DGAF at this point. It's time to go home and start the weekend." 

Since I've become a parent, it's brought me different, deeper, multi-layered meaning. 

I've used it to describe my toddler's epic tantrums, for example: "Oh damn, he just dgafs if he looks like a crazy person right now, huh?"

I've used the term to express a vent to my fellow mom's in the struggle, "Ya'll, I DGAF anymore about 'healthy' eating because my children have not napped all day, I haven't had a chance to go to the grocery store, I don't know what's for dinner, I haven't showered, and I'm convinced the laundry just needs to stay in the drier for eternity. Bring me the thin mints." 

Alternatively: "Eff it. We're ordering pizza. I DGAF!" 

On a more cerebral level, I like to use this as a baseline for inspiration to help me focus and prioritize the things that I really do give a fuck about. Like my kids. Like my husband.

In fact starting this blog was built from a deep need to give fucks about being a creative writer, about honoring my voice as a writer, and about being authentic about what and who I am as a writer. Hence why this blog was started. 

Thanks for being a part of it.
