This is my first post this month that doesn't feature some kind of rainbow awesomeness. While I've been living it up in rainbow all month, I also understand that Pride isn't about rainbows. It's about acceptance and love and visibility. It's about freedom, and so many other things apart from what it's been commercialized as.… Continue reading 210. How to… accept what you cannot change.
We're people, guys. I hate to tell you this if you weren't aware, but behind every single one of our avatars with their perfectly-in-place-always hair and their impeccable fashion sense and lavish virtual homes are people. And people get tired. They have things to do and bills to pay and weight to carry around, their… Continue reading 185. How to… hold on to what’s important.
Sometimes, we get so utterly stuck in the way that things are that we find it hard to even fathom that we have the power to mitigate our own circumstances. Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in the things that hurt us or the things that could go wrong if we take that chance or… Continue reading 179. How to… start a new conversation.
The true secret to surviving lag lies in stopping your forward motion - even if just for a moment. See, you have to stop for a second to appreciate the fact that something has gone wrong... otherwise, you're going to careen off the edge of a cliff, or find yourself face-planting against a wall, or… Continue reading 173. How to… survive the lag spike.
Human beings are, on the whole, a hilarious train wreck of a species. We are in constant competition with ourselves and with each other. Some of us feel like we must to everything.

It's been a rough week. I don't really know how to say that without word-vomiting about everything that seems to be going on all at once and the fact that I don't seem to have enough hours in the day to account for it all. I find myself so looking forward to the weekends now,… Continue reading 168. How to… get it out of your system.
I... still feel like crap. It's a combination of stress from the move, fear over some stuff going on in real life, and just general exhaustion.

I want to start off by saying I don't necessarily apply any of what I'm about to say to all people. But... if the shoe fits, lace that thing up and wear it, I guess. I find… Continue reading 30. How to… find your jam.
I couldn't help it, y'all. This is blog post #25 here, and I feel like I'm finally getting into a routine. And, of course, thinking about the fact that I've gotten myself into a routine brought routines to mind...and I realized just how widely-helpful and healthful having a routine can be. It doesn't matter if… Continue reading 25. How to… make it a habit?
Today is five days until Christmas, and the last day that my agency is open in real life until the new year. I suppose many of you are experiencing the same state of blind, uninhibited euphoria that I feel right now. Job sucks, life sucks, pockets are filled with nothing but lint, but the end… Continue reading 4. How to… enunciate like a lady
