I tend to put a lot of pressure on things that really don't require that much attention. It's a habit of mine that I've been trying to break for the longest time, but sometimes the bad habits win. Often, this comes as a "I can't do x, y, z, until everything else is perfect." I … Continue reading Long story short, it’s still a bad time.
Every single time I sit and try to write, the words don't come. The need to write is there. The all consuming feeling that I must write something overrides my ability to do literally anything else without thinking about how I would write that scene. But, the words don't come. I want to have a … Continue reading just one day
We have gotten a lot of rain lately. And, on the moments when the sun breaks through the outside looks so green and so inviting. I miss long walks through the woods and carefree exploration days. Many of my days have been filled with work, lately. Long hours and lots of inside time. It's been … Continue reading a little calm and a lot of rain
Every year around the middle of April I start to take care of myself a little more. I begin focusing on the aspects of myself which I typically ignore throughout the rest of the year. Usually this means a haircut, painting my nails, and picking up a book or movie for myself. I attempt to … Continue reading a 2021 birthday

A lot of family business was brought to the surface and I'm not going to lie, it hit me pretty hard. Once an escape, my job began to … Continue reading a little mania

I wrote and watched and texted a few friends and watched some more. … Continue reading un-interrupted bliss
I spent the past few days resting and recharging. And, for once, I think that the rest did me good. Wednesday night, I slept for 12 hours, and then took a 4-hour mid day nap. Exhausted still, I barely left my bed. All I wanted to do was sleep. And, for the first time in … Continue reading February, week 1
Lately, I've fallen down the research rabbit hole and landed somewhere between container gardens and homesteading. I think it'd be a (really, really) awesome project to start a small vegetable garden. Y'know, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, broccoli, brussels sprouts, and the like. And, while I've been researching mostly during this frigid winter, I've been itching to … Continue reading a winter garden
Winter is in full swing. I'm having a hard time concentrating on anything. Self-isolation is getting to me. Long story short, I've had to quarantine in my room again. I've had a few movie nights with friends, and I've written letters and sent cards and have had virtual get togethers, which tend to help for … Continue reading Losing Steam
