Today is the anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, so this post seemed especially fitting for today. When I was a little girl in school, I loved to read. I'd read everything, but I was especially interested in history... and still am today. We would get our little homework assignments to read… Continue reading 209. How to… remember what’s really worth it.
Some of y'all may not have heard this before, so it may be hard to believe, but... it's okay to have a bad day. It's okay to be sad, or have doubts. It's okay to question your decisions sometimes, or the decisions of others - should they affect you. The thing is, none of us… Continue reading 208. How to… cope when you’re drowning.
Last week, I ran a workshop about disability and kink at my home community. I initially did it because admittedly, I was a little salty about some comments that had been made in regards to my health and my ability to theoretically do things. The idea that real life comes first, but I should be… Continue reading 203. How to… accept it.
I think one of the most important things I learned from the dumpster fire that was 2020 was this: Sometimes, you're going to screw up. Sometimes, the world is just going to kick you in the face, and no matter how much you scream about it or how loud your tantrum is, there's nothing you… Continue reading 178. How to… learn from your mistakes.
New things are scary, guys. Almost as scary as 2020 has been... though, admittedly, I wouldn't go quite that far. Still, I think sometimes, fear makes us stuck. It's not that we don't want to act. It's not that we don't want things to change, or that we can't advocate for ourselves. It's the fear… Continue reading 146. Sometimes, you just have to go for it…
There was a time not so long ago when I thought I had it all figured out. I had my ride-or-die people and I thought everything was grand. But - and this will happen to everyone at least once in their lives - I realized that I had placed my trust and my confidence into… Continue reading 145. Who do you run to? (and don’t y’all dare say, “An alt!” either. That won’t fix it.)
There are people in this world, whether we speak of the real world or the virtual one, who will never seek to take responsibility for their own actions. In doing (or not doing) so, they will remain stagnant. Stuck. Unable to move forward, unable to pedal backward. They're simply frozen at a point in which… Continue reading 142. Reference: The backspace button is (usually) located somewhere near the top of your keyboard…
And...a new chapter of sorts begins. I was going to wait until the end of 2020, but as it approaches its 37th month and the days now seem to be 32 hours long instead of 24, I figured now is a better time than any. If I wait until the end of the year, I… Continue reading 135. Is it just my viewer, or is your butt floating two feet above your head?
Let's face it, guys: sometimes the universe is a giant douche. Sometimes, I sit back, and I watch people be ugly to each other, and petty over the most trivial crap, and all I can think is, "Really? So, we're going there? This insignificant thing is that important? Does anyone realize that there's much bigger… Continue reading 120. How to… do the scary stuff.
