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 […]

Memoirs and Life

I read this Memoir, The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer, not too long ago. I loved it and I found myself emotionally attached to many of the people she’d written about. Well, one of those people had Cancer. Even in the book, she talked about the treatments and the worry. I even knew from […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Representation

Dear Straight, White, Able-bodied Cis-Men : you’re good. We like you just fine and none of our requests for Women, LGBT or POC representation is out of hatred for you. What we’re really asking for is a culture where the main character could be you but doesn’t have to be. We’re asking for a culture […]

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 […]

How to Respond When Someone’s Anxious

From an evolutionary perspective, our brains do not like to be satisfied with what we have. Our brains also like to prepare us for things that might happen in the future. Sometimes, these two functions go crazy and a person ends up with ANXIETY. In more severe cases, an Anxiety Disorder. Anxiety is like the […]
