222. How to… vanquish the depression monster.

At some point, y'all are going to have to pry all my Halloween stuff out of my cold, dead fingers. I am loving it. This is my favorite time of year for so many reasons, but in large part because you get to see the darker side of creativity on Second Life. It's fascinating (and… Continue reading 222.

220. How to… celebrate you!

It's my biiiiiiiiiiiirthday. I will be spending it drinking mass quantities of delicious hot cocoa, singing karaoke into my hair brush, and... trying to survive dinner with my family without mention of politics, the gay agenda, or how things should be exactly the same as they were fifty years ago.

219. How to… do that voodoo that yoo-doo…

Okay, I couldn't help myself. There's probably a special place in hell reserved just for me based on that title alone, but it's been a long couple weeks, alright? I made myself giggle and that's what counts. So, here's the rundown: I think I'm closing on my first ever house at the end of October.… Continue reading 219. How to… do that voodoo that yoo-doo…

218. How to… use a crutch without relying on one.

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.

217. How to… hold on to the hope.

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.

216. How to… give yourself a break.

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.

213. How to… balance it all without risking a fall.

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.

212. How to… smile through the malfunctions.

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.

211. How to… get some rest.

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.
