June Wrap-Up

Pride Month is over. In truth, it didn't really feel like Pride Month. It felt more like Wrath Month. Ah, well. I saw an old friend, met up with my writing group for the first time in over a year, and visited my brother. Oh, and I joined a book club and completed a mini… Continue reading June Wrap-Up

May Wrap-Up

I JUST FINISHED THE FIRST CLASS IN MY EDITING COURSE. ONE DOWN, TWO TO GO. Once again, I don't really remember the month gone by. I experienced things but I DID NOT REMEMBER THEM.

May Wrap-Up: Things got worse

I stared at my monitor for a full minute trying to remember what I meant to write. Oh right! It's wrap-up day! May was a pretty regular quarantine month until it all went to shit. Near the end of last month, cops in Minneapolis, MN killed a Black man named George Floyd. Specifically, police officer… Continue reading May Wrap-Up: Things got worse

April Wrap-Up + Extended “Chaotic Good” Rant (I hated it)

Another month of quarantine down! Certain states have decided to reopen! Armed protesters are storming the Michigan capital! I hate it here! Despite all the drama, I was able to read 13 books this month! Hooray! Other than that, there's not much to report. My friend Carrie mailed me some yarn. I cooked portobello mushroom… Continue reading April Wrap-Up + Extended “Chaotic Good” Rant (I hated it)
