I Didn’t Expect The Loneliness

After the break-up, I expected the grief. At this point, I’m well acquainted with the stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I know they’re not some linear timeline, but instead a twisting cycle that can seemingly have no end, until suddenly, it doesn’t hurt so much anymore. I expected this, and prepared for it....

The “Should” List

It’s a simple conversation. They’re offering advice. “Oh, have you thought about taking a self-defense class?” “Are you streaming on Twitch?” “Have you found a doctor/church/gym/“insert a seemingly helpful suggestion here” yet?” And I always have the same answer: “I should do that.” Seems innocuous enough, right? 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.

Tessa’s a bit of... Continue Reading →

Why the 2016 Presidential Election is Already Over

It’s October 19th and there are a little under 3 weeks left until the 2016 Presidential Election, but I’d like to suggest that the election is already over.  Why?  You might ask. Is this going to be one of those “Donald Trump has run himself into the ground so Hillary has already won” pieces? No,... Continue Reading →

Anxiety and Change

The last few years have been pretty rough for me emotionally. I’ve basically been living life in a way I didn’t want to be and couldn’t find much joy in which is why change is a welcome development in the narrative of my life. However, if you’ve read much of my blog or followed me... Continue Reading →

Art, Depression, and Monsters of the Mind

I started a blog yesterday that was pretty honest and raw about the rough time I’ve been having with depression recently. But it was SO raw, that I was a little afraid to continue writing it and post it. You all know I’m an advocate for honesty in my blog and vlog, but I think... Continue Reading →
