Hi! Thanks for falling in love with me checking out my blog! My name is Julie. You can call me Jules, because I sense you’re ready to take our friendship to the next level.

The Blog

I like to write about life (mostly my own, but I’d be glad to take a crack at yours) and all of the ridiculousness that comes along with it.

I recently shaved my ‘stache.

I usually only blog once a week (Wednesday mornings PST) because someone once told me you can have too much of a good thing.

The Blogger

I’m way too old to blog about celebrity obsessions in my late 30’s and known for my epic fails and my even more epic fails. Perhaps my only win is my doodle-rific dog, Uncle Jesse Every now and then, things get serious.

Have mercy!

Originally from New Jersey, in 2019 I began auditioning cities for “Home Base of The Girl Who Says Yes to Everything Just for the Blog Post.” Which might be how, in June 2019, I landed in central Oregon!

Dear Oregon: I did it all for the blog post.

By day I’m a project manager, humane educator, creative writing coach, and YouTube sensation. By night I blog about missing thumbs and saving the planet. Eventually I hope to chuck it all and open a goat yoga studio.

Oh! One more thing you should probably know. I like chipmunks. A lot.

  1. Hi Jules

    Pleased to meet you. :).

    My name is Kevin Gillespie, but I do, MUCH prefer to be called Kev. :).

    I live in Wales, & am now Following your Blog. :).

    Best Wishes. :).
    Kev. 🙂

  2. Hi Jules! Glad I found your blog – great way for this Jersey Girl (now living in the South but FOREVER from JERSEY!) to enjoy her coffee this morning – wish I could send you some chipmunks! Our yard is a chipmunk Club Med! They don’t even care that we have two dogs – oi!!
    Nice to meet you 🙂 ~maria

    1. I’m glad you found me, too, Maria! You can take the girl outta Jersey… 😀

      Why does EVERYONE see chipmunks except me?! That’s part of why I’m so fascinated – I NEVER see them, and if I do, they’re running for cover. Your Club Chipmunk Med sounds amazing.

      1. They are cute and are EVERYWHERE! I realized I can make a business out of this. You see, they are not common in Spain and are sold as pets! Except, chip&dale would have to learn Spanish 🙂
        Btw, this jersey girl stands out like a sore thumb down south and I LOVE IT! As they say, “bless their little southern hearts”
        You can spot me anywhere because I still park rear first – it was the only way to get out of a snowed in parking lot!

  3. Love your blog! Just started mine and yours is a perfect example of how I want mine to, one day, be! I would aopreciate a follow back and maybe some tips on what I got goinn on 🙂

    1. Hi Maria! I’m so sorry I’m this late in responding to your wonderful comment. (Tip #1: Reply to all comments in a timely manner, ha) Welcome to blogging! I can honestly say it’s changed my life.

      I wrote a post with some of my top tips last year that might be helpful, and I’m always available for any questions! (Tip #2: Don’t link to your own blog posts in comments… Man, I suck at this.)


  4. I think that I will enjoy looking around your Space and
    seeing as mine is Private I will try and send you an invite 🙂

    Have a lovely
    rest of evening
    Jules 🙂 😉


    1. Thank YOU! And please do feel free to laugh at my expense. Uncle Jesse does all the time. He also eats deer poop, though, so I like to think he’s full of sh**.

    1. Thanks, Tony! This explains so much. Every time Uncle Jesse is doing that dreaming/running/must-be-chasing-rabbits thing, I swear I hear him muttering, “Gabi. Gabiiii.”

  5. Hi Jules, I am not sure how I found “Go Jules GO”, but I am glad I did. It is a nice read and a good laugh. I also took your advice and got a drink, (any typos here are the resuls of that). Happy didging!

  6. Oh, Julsie, I knew you’d have a bezillion comments on your “About” page, so I hope you see this. It’s me, the former Sprinkles, now turned Disappearing Woman, but still really named Sherri. Remember me? I hope you’re doing well. I began a new blog in January. It began as my weight loss journal, but soon morphed into a blog. I’m glad I refound your blog and have followed you and tucked you securely in my reader. How are zest and zeal doing? 🙂 Hope you visit my new spot–I have Gypsy stories to tell and I ran into the human Ken doll this weekend in Manhattan! (I still love me some trash TV!)

  7. Your blog is so positive and energetic it makes me smile! I will follow it now, and do secretly hope you’ll be curious enough to check mine out too. 🙂 If you want to follow it, you have a friend for life. 😉

    1. Hi Angie! You’re so sweet – thank you! I hope the bloggy life is treating you well – there are some really fabulous folks out there. (I’m looking forward to reconnecting as I try to get my bloggy mojo back!)

  8. I just came across your blog and just feel in love with it…your energy and style…I’m a newbie but hey one has to start somewhere lol.. hope to hear from you from time to time ….keep up your amazing work…Suzette

  9. Somehow tumbled out here, while dragging myself through recommended blogs section..and wow! this place is fun! No doubt, it made me laugh… 🙂

  10. I found you today while browsing the recommended humor blogs and I love your page! Keep on keepin’ on.
    Funny ladies are the BEST kinds of ladies.

  11. Greetings, Jules… You are too funny. You seriously deserve your own sit-com. I am not kidding. What you post here and the way you present it (with your subtle internal thoughts crossed out) is priceless. You can’t possibly make this stuff up. The spilled red wax / your dad’s chopped thumb / your eHarmony happenings. And you have over 14,000 followers?!? Even satanic cults don’t attract that many people. I love your self-deprecating humor!

    1. Greetings to you! It’s curious that I like chipmunks so much, when their heads are so tiny compared to mine after such kind and thoughtful comments/emails!! Thank you so much 🙂

  12. Hi Jules, just found you and now folllwing you. You’re an incredible writer and I love your sense of humor. Too many people take themselves and this life too seriously. It’s just too short to not laugh as often as we can.
    I’m actually a comedy writer and I write sets for several comedian friends throughout the U.S.
    As far as chipmunks are concerned, I’m not sure if you’re aware of their love for Cheetos??
    I’m from Alabama and saw many squirrels growing up there but did not see my first chipmunk until after living in Washington state and taking my children to Mt. St. Helens. I turned my back for just a minute on my then 4 year old son and he then yells, “Mom! Cheetos are chipmunks favorite food!” Lol
    I think he was on to something considering the sight I turned to.
    He was surrounded by 11 chipmunks, he was handing them each a Cheeto and they were devouring them! The cutest part is they would hold on to the ends as if eating a corncob and then actually nibbled like we do while eating corncobs! It was so cute.
    After an invasion of chipmunks were upon us, I began to be concerned that they might get sick from the Cheetos so we left.
    To this day, when my son ( now 19), sees Cheetos, he says, “the chipmunks corncob!” 😂
