About Unrelenting Amee

I gave up dating and karaoke for Lent 2011, and this blog is the result! I want to chronicle what occupies my time without these distractions, and so far, I’m likin’ it. A LOT.

The freedom is delicious. But even better? The accountability. Holy cats, I need a bigger life!

I’m Amee Bohrer. Since turning 30 , I’ve felt driven to re-define myself, and this blog is part of that journey.

I’m on a mission to re-define myself on my own terms, to celebrate myself. I’m ecstatic. I’m scared shitless.

I’m unrelentingly ebullient.


Now I’m 32, and I’m still blogging.

In 2012, I made a grandiose Lent promise that  I completely failed. But life went on!

This blog helped me stumble upon a newspaper column for 18 months, which I adored and loathed equally at times. I got the job in August 2011, my first column ran in September 2011, and I quit in January 2013. My last column was a break-up letter!

But I’m keeping this blog, though I wrestle with its identity.

I’m still single, and still unrelenting!

I’m still unraveling truth and learning to write it.

Ruminating about Lent 2013, and I plan to blog about that too.

Keep coming back.

Please, comment. Blogging gets lonely! I didn’t always respond in the past, but I’m resolved to change that.

I like to have a conversation with my readers. Thanks for visiting and it makes my day whenever I get new subscribers!

Until next time,  I remain….

  1. This is awesome. I love your blog!

  2. […] “works better” for younger women, and works less and less well as a woman ages.  (She’s thirty.)  I’m told that a woman’s fertility starts to decline around age 27, and that at 35 […]

  3. So I’m not totally familiar with this Blog thing yet and for some reason I can’t reply to your reply on my Online Dating article, BUT I just wanted to say that I saw the blog that guy quoted you on. It was pretty disgusting. I definitely put my two cents in!

    Going to subscribe to your blog! 🙂

    • Emily, thanks! I saw, and wrote a blog about it.:) I linked your blog in my post, quoted your comments, and subscribed to you too! This is the best day of my blogging life! And by the way, CONGRATS on making Freshly Pressed after only blogging four months, I’m so jealous!! You inspired me to work on my profile a bit, and it was awesome that you came in and charged with me. I hope you’ll both comment on that, and we can keep each other’s blog egos healthy!

  4. It’s blogging award time! I’ve nominated unrelentingamee for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. It’s like a Grammy, except for the following good and bad points:

    Good: Unlike the Grammys, there’s no Chris Brown. That’s gotta be a good thing in anyone’s book.
    Bad: You receive no trophy, no money and limited kudos. The kudos has no cash value. I checked.

    That’s a fine (or kick-ass, depending) attitude to take to the public.
    Since I am prone to imaginary realms (including the spiritual),
    the subject matter comes to me unabashed at times.
    Remaining relentless is absolutely necessary
    to the creative life – cuz good happens.

    I wish you the best of luck.
    My feeling is, you’ll do well.
    Stay enticing, Amee! 🙂 UT

    • Thanks! Although I think I’ve changed a bit since then. I may post about that soon.

      Here’s to unabashed subject matter and remaining relentless! I actually tried for “relentless”– it was taken! Thanks for the encouragement, on my Blog Day– no less. Blogging is a stupendous way to “meet” other writers, ain’t it?

  6. I misread the last sentence: I thought it said you were unrelentingly ‘brilliant’, not ‘ebullient’.

    The good news is that either adjective is perfectly apt.

  7. Each decade I feel redefines me! I make all sorts of resolutions and they stick for a while… but sooner or later I slide back, only eventually to fulfill the resolution.. or come closer to it. So now at 50 I’ve decided to not care so much what other people think about what I do on the web. If it makes me happy, and (so I hope) is in line with God’s will, then it’s just fine… 🙂

    It was really nice to meet you after hearing Andi talk about you and your blog so much. Thank you for being such a good friend to her. Be blessed.

  9. She talked about me and my blog?? Wow, that fits right into my heart. Thank you, Jen. Thank you for commenting and subscribing, I’m glad we met and get along. You obviously have a lot of stories and I can’t wait to hear more of them.

    To quote Maureen from RENT, talking at Angel’s memorial service:

    “You always said how lucky you were that we were all friends. But it was us, baby, who were the lucky ones.”
