March Wrap-Up: A Tiny Energy Boost

Another big energy drop this month! I started feeling really down around Daylight Savings Time. Talking to friends and family helped and I was able to finish a decent number of books. I also went TikTok viral accidentally, so uh...that happened. School is going well. Not too many updates aside from that. Let's do some… Continue reading March Wrap-Up: A Tiny Energy Boost

February Wrap-Up: Reading is Difficult, Friends

No one stormed the U.S. Capitol last month. Things are looking up! I had a GIANT energy drop during the last two weeks of February and didn't get much done. Then again, I am not defined by my productivity. I don't know. It's been a weird time. February Life Updates I started the editing certification… Continue reading February Wrap-Up: Reading is Difficult, Friends

January Wrap-Up: WHO EVEN CARES

WOW, I THOUGHT DECEMBER WAS BAD. PRESIDENT-SANCTIONED INSURRECTION? MUTATED STRAINS OF COVID-19? A SECOND IMPEACHMENT? CAN WE PLEASE CATCH A BREAK? PLEASE? Last month, I worked even more mandatory overtime. Oh, and I turned 28 during quarantine. This is not exactly the fresh start I'd hoped for. I'm trying to stay optimistic. "Trying," of course,… Continue reading January Wrap-Up: WHO EVEN CARES

December Wrap-Up: FINALLY

WE MADE IT THROUGH THE HELLSCAPE THAT WAS 2020. Not gonna lie, last month was shit! My great-uncle and my grandma both died during December. I don't really want to talk about it. It was just a really sad, awful time for my whole family. That leaves talking about books. December Stats In December, I… Continue reading December Wrap-Up: FINALLY

November Wrap-Up: I initially wrote “September,” so that’s where I am emotionally

I would really like for this year to end already. It took me three days to realize the month had changed. November was pretty quiet. I researched autism this month and ended up self-diagnosing. Autism explains most, if not all, of my childhood and adolescence. I also learned to love romance again, but that's a… Continue reading November Wrap-Up: I initially wrote “September,” so that’s where I am emotionally

October Wrap-up: Spooky depressive once-in-a-blue-moon extravaganza

Welp. Election Day is upon us and I'm trying to distract myself. October wrap-up time. I put too much pressure on October to be the best month ever. IT WAS NOT. There are MORE than a few reasons for this: I've been having issues with unemployment since May. In short, I'm still waiting on AT… Continue reading October Wrap-up: Spooky depressive once-in-a-blue-moon extravaganza

September Wrap-up: I think I’m cured of brain worms

It's the final day of voting for Fat Bear Week and high time I shared my reading stats for last month. September was decent (better than August, anyway.) I got to see both of my brothers and some other family members. I spent an entire weekend with a pack of dogs and spent a ton… Continue reading September Wrap-up: I think I’m cured of brain worms

July Wrap-up

Hello, it's August now and I'm hopped up on jitters. Let's wrap up July, shall we?   Political Updates Portland is on their 65th day of protests. Protestors spent the month of July being battered by federal agents, because fuck free speech, am I right? Last week, arrested protestors were banned from attending more protests… Continue reading July Wrap-up

June Wrap-up: WHO SIGNED OFF ON THE TEARGAS?

June was...a month. It's normally my favorite month, what with all the Pride celebrations. This month felt different. Washington state is slowly opening back up. Despite an ordinance from Governor Inslee, some citizens refuse to wear masks. Black Lives Matter protests are ongoing around the country. Seattle protestors took over a six-block area on Capitol… Continue reading June Wrap-up: WHO SIGNED OFF ON THE TEARGAS?

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
