Like So

Ranting, raving, burning bridges and moving forward.


Hi I’m Mo.

That’s not my real name, just a nickname that happened as a result of blogging. I don’t like to expose my real name here because I tend to be too blunt and ranty for my own good. I also have a tendency to talk about things that are way too intimate, so I don’t want possible employers to google me only to find out the latest about my digestive system or my lady parts.

I’m married to a lovely man who I call Shmerson both on this blog and in real life. We have the best dog in the world, named Luna. I live in Israel, and I currently work at home as a web content editor, and I teach high school kids film three times a week. I’ve got a Master’s Degree in Film Directing from “Grad School X” (I hate it so I don’t use its name for fear of getting sued or just looked at weird).

A little while back I realized that I don’t really want a career in film and I’m currently working on getting together the requirements for yet ANOTHER Master’s – this time in Art Therapy.

You may be thinking: “Hey Mo, if you’re Israeli how come you write and talk like a Valley Girl?” (I know you can’t hear my voice here, but I promise you that I do indeed speak like a Valley Girl).

And if you hadn’t thought about it until now, surely you must be wondering why that is now that I’ve spoon-fed you the question.

Well – I’m 32 now, and I’ve spent half of my life in the U.S. That’s Elementary School, college, grad school, and some spare  change. The result of that is that I think in English, I dream in English, and I incessantly quote SNL skits from the early 90’s.

Now I’m getting a little verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves. I’ll give you a topic: peanuts are neither peas nor nuts. Discuss.

I should probably mention that my lady parts are broken. I will be talking about it on occasion so I apologize in advance. If you really want to know the nitty-gritty of that, feel free to check out my old blog. I’m a freak of nature, I assure you.

But these days I expend most of my incessant lady-parts talk on my podcast – “Bitter Infertiles”. So if you really want to know all about cervical mucus, because I’m sure you find it fascinating, please do check it out.

Ok, we talk about more than cervical mucus on the podcast. It’s actually pretty interesting and funny for those of you interested in lady parts from the medical – or just generally non-sexual – perspective.

Hmmm… What else?

I believe that there have only been 5 good albums released in the world since 1999 (and I’m sure I’ll write a ranty blog post about it eventually). I watch too much reality TV. I have a thing for bunnies, though I don’t own any. I suffer from depression and anxiety that is kept at bay because of an awesome happy pill combo. I’m obsessed with purple – as in the color, and if I could just wear only that color and decorate everything with it I would be a happy camper. I’m a film geek but I like the commercial Hollywood stuff more than the artsy independent and foreign language stuff. I’ve read the Harry Potter series more times than I can count.

I think that about covers it. Though I’m sure I’m skipping over a lot. But everything will eventually see the light of day, in one way or another.

In the meantime, happy reading!
