Sometimes things go disastrously off course. Other times, things don't go anywhere at all. The last few months have been very blah. Not bad necessarily, but very stilted. I feel like I hit the pause button on my life, and I don't quite know how to hit play again. Even the steps I've taken to… Continue reading Oops.
hello from the other side
So uh... how about that April, eh? Yeah, I got away from this a bit. And everything else. April was a pretty empty month for me. I was too depressed to worry myself over creating blog content, or my podcast, or really anything else. All I did was watch HGTV, read a bunch of Agatha… Continue reading hello from the other side
“the queen of mystery”
Most of my friends tend to read YA, usually fantasy. But me? I'm addicted to murder mysteries. I do, I love them. I think that a good mystery is the most difficult to write. To create a plot that is wildly unpredictable yet brilliantly and seamlessly crafted, it takes a certain kind of genius. I live for… Continue reading “the queen of mystery”
tv that soothes the soul
I gotta be honest. Right now, my depression cycle is hitting hard. During the early months of the year, the depression cycle of my Bipolar I disorder rears its ugly head. I grow lethargic and unmotivated, and my world becomes really insular as a result. All I can really handle is going to work, if that.… Continue reading tv that soothes the soul
About International Women’s Day…
Yesterday was International Women's Day. Honestly? I felt reeeeeeally weird and conflicted. On the one hand, yes! Everyone is really excited about female anger right now, and it's a righteously beautiful thing. #TimesUp is bringing women's issues in Hollywood to the forefront, which is followed closely by women's issues in other industries. Not all fads… Continue reading About International Women’s Day…
“Six more weeks of hibernation” is over.
So uh, remember that time I made a bunch of goals for February? Yeah. That didn't go so well. I planked occasionally, we recorded one podcast episode, I wrote one short story... and that's about it. Hardly any other progress was made. SO. March goals, yeah! We need need need to get unpacked. I seriously want to… Continue reading “Six more weeks of hibernation” is over.
To quit or not to quit?
Unpopular opinion time... I believe in the cathartic power of quitting. Being a "quitter" is seen as weak. People love to act like sticking with things makes them a martyr, like they're somehow better or stronger for refusing to quit. Whether this be a hobby, a partner, a job, quitting things that aren't working is… Continue reading To quit or not to quit?
Queer Eye for the… Lazier Queer Not-Guy
When I heard that Queer Eye was being rebooted on Netflix, I won't lie, it elicited a massive eyeroll. The idea that gay men are fashionable and straight men are aesthetically clueless is annoying at best, and I had no plans whatsoever to engage with it. But Shila kept hearing really positive things and convinced… Continue reading Queer Eye for the… Lazier Queer Not-Guy
Why yes, I do cut my own hair!
If you look at me and wonder, "Good lord, does this girl cut her own hair, or does she just have reeeeeally bad bedhead?" The answer is usually both. For a lot of people, this subject is probably weird for a Mental Health Monday post, but for me, it couldn't be more relevant. Just bear… Continue reading Why yes, I do cut my own hair!
Maybe your thoughts and prayers should be about policy change.
I don't even quite know what to say. I am devastated for those affected by the latest school shooting, but let's be honest... you could read this on any given day and assume I'm talking about a different tragedy. It is relevant every single day in this country, because a mass shooting happens statistically every… Continue reading Maybe your thoughts and prayers should be about policy change.
