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 […]

Trashy Romance and Ballet

In the last few weeks, I have lost myself in a library of trashy Avengers fanfiction (I know, I need Jesus). I’m not talking digging through every piece of Science Bros fiction on AO3. I don’t have a ship, I have an armada. I’ll ship Loki with Tony, Bruce/Hulk, Steve, Darcy, and any and all […]

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 […]

To Blog Post or Not To Blog Post?

I believe that writers have a responsibility to share their truth and life experiences with their readers. Herman Melville wrote long sections of whaling history into Moby Dick and James Joyce made inside jokes in dead languages. Nowadays, we tend to write blogs, which leaves our works open for only the truly relevant information. But […]

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 […]

Solo Adventures

The best way to build a relationship is to create shared experiences. Friendships strengthen and romance blooms when you do things together. But there’s a more important relationship than the one with your friends and loved ones: your relationship with yourself. Granted, you don’t have to try to create experiences with yourself. The kind of […]

A Career in Two Parts

Lately, I’ve stopped thinking of my writing career and my web development career as two different careers. I’m starting to think of them as a single career with two different parts that are often intertwined. Every website I build has little bits of information built in for me to use. I know more about eye […]

Master of None

My parents can attest that I’ve had the drive to write since I was very small. But that wasn’t the only drive I had, even back then. My first book was about bunnies and was written and drawn on construction paper then stapled together and hidden away in my mom’s underwear drawer for 20+ years. […]

Dating Myself

This week, I bought myself roses. I cut them down and put them in a mason jar full of water. I might buy myself some of those colored beads to put in there and make fresh flowers a weekly thing. But the important part is that I saw flowers, pink roses, and I didn’t just […]

Grown-up Love and Nostalgia

Romance has always been really hard for me. People would hit on me and tell me their friends liked me as a joke throughout middle school and high school. I was the weird fat girl. I had a friend or two, but I was not a romantic resource for anyone. By the time I went […]
