A Girl and Her Cat

When I moved out of the apartment my ex and I shared in February, I worried about my mental health. I had never really lived alone up until this point.  The closest I came was during my last two years at William & Mary where I had a single dorm room where I was also... Continue Reading →

Life in the Margins

Last week I came back from a holiday at home for Labor Day and found myself surprisingly sick. It crept up on me in a way I wasn’t used to. Because of my autoimmune issues, I can usually tell when I’m on the verge of sickness and my immune system has been beat down. But... Continue Reading →

Rewrite: Prologue

Have you ever thought about rewriting your life from a different perspective? Quite frequently I fantasize about the past and how I’d change it if given access to a time machine. I’m well aware this isn’t a healthy place to dwell. “The past is the past” and all that. Which is why I was surprised... Continue Reading →

Of course, I should do all those things.... Continue Reading →

Dogspotting Love

  Last week on the blog, I shared with you my cat obsession. And this week I felt like I couldn’t leave out my other animal obsession: DOGS!  More specifically, a Facebook group called “Dogspotting Society” which has honestly changed my life for the better. Social media in 2017 has pretty much been making a... Continue Reading →

‘This is Us’ Shines a Light on Anxiety Attacks

I’m a pretty naturally anxious person. There are times when it is manageable. But there are other times when it consumes my world. My first memory of it overwhelming me was when I was 11. I became so irrationally fearful of germs after a bad bought with a stomach virus that I could barely function.... Continue Reading →
