To say I have been exhausted lately would be an understatement. I don't even really know how to put into words everything that has been going on, but it's been an incredibly long couple of days. Or weeks. The house hunt thing took a pause because we were told there was supposedly an issue that… Continue reading 218. How to… use a crutch without relying on one.
Apart from being a whole exploration of the idea of Stockholm Syndrome, Beauty and the Beast was simply just... one of my favorite Disney movies. It was when I was a little girl, it is today, and it probably always will be. I could care less about some of the more controversial ideas attached to… Continue reading 217. How to… hold on to the hope.
So... the house didn't work out. The inspection was the stuff nightmares were made of, and the seller I think was hoping that I wouldn't be smart enough to hire an inspector of my own. He refused to address any of the issues, so I walked away from the deal, and it's back to the… Continue reading 216. How to… give yourself a break.
You guys... it's been a stressful couple of weeks. I'm midway through the process of buying my first house. The inspection is today. It's been a rollercoaster. I know at this point things could still go wrong, but closing is supposed to be September 17th... assuming the inspector today doesn't find a portal to hell… Continue reading 215.

I feel like I've been a bit slow on the uptake this month. RL has been rearing its ugly head... but not necessarily in all bad ways? The issue with my leg is still a mystery, and I'm not really sure when we'll get it sorted out. In the meantime, I've not really been able… Continue reading 214. How to… take it all in.
If my lack of blog posts as of late weren't an indication, I've kind of had real life kicking me in the face a little more than I'd usually like to admit. I got the flu - not Covid, the other one - and my leg has been swollen something fierce for... weeks now? I… Continue reading 213. How to… balance it all without risking a fall.
It's been a long time, guys. I've been exhausted. Without going into a lot of detail, it's just... been an eventful couple of weeks, and I've not been around as much as I hoped to be. I think one of the most important thing when things aren't going well is to press the pause button… Continue reading 212. How to… smile through the malfunctions.
I have been dealing with some health stuff lately, and for me, that's meant a lot of rest, a lot of "taking it easy"... and a lot of personal guilt-tripping over the fact that I'm trying to do those things, because... Well, there's lots of reasons, really. Sometimes, when we need to rest, we ignore… Continue reading 211. How to… get some rest.
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.
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.
