July is usually exciting. It's both my and Husband's birthday month, it's warm enough to go swimming and do other fun summer activities, and it's Camp NaNo, but in the midst of everything else going on in the world...well, you know. Regardless, I'm using the summer version of National Novel Writing Month to write, write,… Continue reading First Day of CampNaNoWriMo And I’m Feeling Introspective
It is finally out in the open. The truth. The freezing, solid veracity. I am a faker, an imposter, a montebank! And if you are reading this now, I must apologize, for I am swindling you this very instant. You see, you are reading these words, and I have written them, but lo, I am… Continue reading I Am A Fraud
It's weird how almost universally people can watch or read something like The Hunger Games and side with Katniss and the rebellion, but when the opportunity comes up in real life, they're rooting on The Capital even when they're not a part of it. What can I even say? Sitting here in my suburban home,… Continue reading My Heart Goes Out To The Protesters
Who I am and who I want to be are different, no doubt, but they get a little closer on the spectrum of person as time goes on. Not consistently, mind you, but on average. Someone reminded me today that I'm "doing the damn thing," and ya know what? Hell yeah, I am! I've wanted… Continue reading Warning: This Is A Feel Good Post
It's been a long time since I blogged, mostly because I have a lot of strong feelings about politics, but didn't want to share them here, so I said nothing. But this is my breaking point. Sorry, not sorry. I’ve wanted to have a baby for some time now. Husband and I have been married… Continue reading Questions On Georgia’s HB 481, The Heartbeat Bill
Oh, Dear Reader, I have made a grievous mistake. Today is Valentine's Day, and I should be happy, but alas and alack, I am not and it is all for this: I've anthropomorphized a robot. The Mars rover Opportunity is probably something you've heard of, but don't know a whole lot about. I know I… Continue reading It’s Getting Dark
Clouding up my mind today has been the people who, and the ways in which those people, made fun of me when I was younger. See, I ordered a laser hair remover from Costco, and it just arrived. Don't get me wrong, I am fucking PUMPED this thing is here--it's something I've wanted since I… Continue reading Steady
In a word, this year has been weird, and in another word, December specifically has been busy. So it all just WENT and here I am, on the brink of January, both glad and sad to see it go. Moving, in general, was the theme. In fact, "Moving" might be my title for the year.… Continue reading Where Did December And 2018 Go?
Well that kinda went to pot at the end, didn't it? Happy Post-Halloween Depression, everybody! I hope whatever you did to make yesterday special was awesome. I got up at about 4:30am so that I could do Husband's makeup for work. I think it was worth it: He was a corporate demon with Terms of… Continue reading Blogoween Day 32? A Wrap Up
"Hey, kid, why are you so into all this macabre shit?" That's what my uncle asked me two years ago just about this, the spookiest, time of year. It really struck me for two reasons: 1) it's a very funny combination of words, and 2) wtf, for real @me "Why??" Mostly people don't ask me… Continue reading Blogoween Day 7 – An Introspection or Why Do I Love Spooky Stuff?
