Mental Health and Medications

I’ve been gone for a while but I’ll hopefully come back soon. Some stuff happened in my everyday life that’s kept me super busy and I haven’t been blogging like I should. But this is something that needed to be put down. For the last 2.5-3 months, I’ve been on new medications. I had resisted […]

Covert Geekery

Recently, my office changed the dress code to limit graphic tees throughout the week. This isn’t a bad thing, of course; we’re a professional office with clients who pop in all the time, so we need to look professional. Pretty important stuff. But how am I supposed to profess my love of Sailor Moon without […]

What is Transracial?

I’ve seen a lot of people comparing the “Transracial” situation to Transgender/Transsexual and I’d like to explain a thing real quick: Transracials are kids who were raised by parents of a different race than their own. That’s because, aside from people of color not being able to shed their race when it’s convenient, race identity […]

The Dangers of LGBTQIA Representation

I was asked this last weekend a good question regarding Caitlyn Jenner’s very public announcement of her transition: how do I think this will affect pre-teens and children growing up who see people of different Gender Identities and Sexualities on TV? Will there be confused kids or kids just following a trend? I tried to […]

Self Care After Critique Sessions

If you’re at all serious about writing, you’re going to need a critique session at some point. Those sessions are what helps you pick out what’s wrong with your project before you start burning through your list of agents and publishers. But it can hurt. In fact, they might be holding back if it doesn’t. […]

Frozen and Mental Illness

I’m aware it’s been a couple years since this movie came out but I feel like I’m explaining this to too many people and it would just be easier to have an article I can give them. Okay, so Frozen! I love that movie and it is wonderful and I sing along to the songs […]

Hypocrites and Problematic Faves

I’m a bad feminist. I care about women’s issues and I do notice sexist crap, but I’m much more likely to shake my head and roll my eyes if I like everything else about the person/movie/game/etc being sexist. I won’t deny myself time with someone I enjoy based solely on their problematic views on equality, […]

The Diva Cup

This is going to be a bit of a TMI blog post, but I feel compelled to wax poetic about the silicone shot glass between my legs. The first time I heard about a Diva Cup, one of my writer friends was raving about it on her livejournal and I was so confused. Why would […]

What is Art

When you breathe, you take in oxygen put out by plants. It is a collaborative effort by all the plants to provide oxygen to the animals. As a single person, you take in some part of the collaborative effort of those plants and you change it inside you and breathe out carbon dioxide, which joins […]

Self-Compassion

One of my biggest weaknesses is being able to show myself compassion. I’m almost delusional in my readiness to brush off a friend’s faults, but I’ll bully myself for the same ones. I try to change my inner hatred but I always end up in the same place. I refuse to believe that a friend […]
