Well. It's been a couple of weeks, that's for sure. I have been trying to ward off full-on panic for about a month with mixed success. As I mentioned in my last post, my brain is soup. One good thing happened last month: my niece Josie was born. She and my sister-in-law are doing great… Continue reading July Wrap-Up: Using ice on my vagus nerve 24/7
So May sucked. The Supreme Court wants to overturn Roe v. Wade. Obergefell v. Hodges and Loving v. Virginia might be next. The Buffalo and Uvalde shootings were similarly devastating. Everyone I know is sad, mad, and scared. I feel angry and helpless most of the time. (I got a tattoo about it. It helped… Continue reading May Wrap-Up: Goodbye and Good Riddance
May the Fourth be with you! I won't lie: this week has been difficult. For me, things in general have been difficult. I've had a lot of anxiety about school, COVID, future plans, and whatnot. I hope you are all surviving. Last month, I did schoolwork, went to a gender reveal party (I'M HAVING A… Continue reading April Wrap-Up: Springtime School Daze
Hello! I just got back from another month of house sitting! I listened to a lot of audiobooks, cooked some nice meals, ordered a bunch of cookies, and watched every single episode of American Nailed It. It was a good time. I also started my practicum course and learned more about developmental editing. Friends. It… Continue reading March Wrap-Up: Back to School
I said last month that I didn't have the energy to think about leaving Seattle. I lied. I thought about it and I really want to do it. My mom helped me think up a game plan so POTENTIALLY this year I will finish up my certificate program, pay off my student loans, and move… Continue reading February Wrap-Up: 24/7 Existential Crisis
I had...a surprisingly nice January? It wasn't all great. I came down with what I'm PRETTY sure was Omicron. Would not recommend. I spent most of the month, though, housesitting in Tacoma. That I WOULD recommend. I turned 29, ate a lot of cake, hung out with friends and family, and had an existential crisis.… Continue reading January Wrap-Up: A good time??
Happy December! As always, I'm not quite sure how we got here! Last month was jam-packed with write-ins, family dinners, and karaoke. It was so packed I'm going to start with some life updates. Life Updates I got my first tattoo. Don't worry about it. Originally, my writing group had talked about getting matching tattoos.… Continue reading November Wrap-up: Turning the corner
It's autumn and I am struggling. Pandemic + shorter days + going to school while working full-time tired me out. I DID finish my second editing course. So that's fun. Instead of signing up for my final class right away, I decided to take some time off from school to socialize and read. I was… Continue reading October Wrap-Up: Still slumpin’
I am exhausted. Between medication issues, difficult assignments, and work pressure, I hit a low point last month. As such, I'm in a reading slump. Behold my DNF-heavy reading stats. Reading Stats In September, I completed 15 books and DNFed 10 books for a total of 25 books. Turns out I DNFed 7 books in August. School has been weighing… Continue reading September Wrap-Up: Third quarter slump
Dare I say I had a good August? It started raining toward the end of the month. I'm wearing sweats and long sleeves again. I might even break out the beanies. I got to be really social last month: a friend I hadn't seen in a while threw a pool party, my writing buddies and… Continue reading August Wrap-Up: Cooler weather at last!
