Y'all... it's been a long couple days. A long, long, long couple of days. I'm sitting here writing this in the middle of a thunderstorm because why not? We have some stuff going on in real life (who's not surprised?) and a bit of craziness to handle, and at times like this, I'm never sure… Continue reading 96. How to… dip your toes into the water.
I'm back from vacation, y'all, and I survived. Unless you count the nine million bug bites and the weird urge to sleep for two days despite absolutely no time change between my grandparents' house and mine... In any case, I managed to escape with what remains of my sanity (mostly) intact, and I'm glad to… Continue reading 92. How to… recover.
I've talked about him a lot in this blog and in another I used when I was working towards getting my Seraph tag at Xaara. You ever not talk to someone in a little bit and get one of those feelings in the pit of your stomach like something is just wrong and you don't… Continue reading 88. How to… stay strong.
I feel like I've dropped the ball lately. Like my head would fall off and roll away if it wasn't attached to my shoulders. I can sit here and try to make excuses about it all day long... but that's time consuming, and excuses don't really get us anywhere, do they? But there's a second… Continue reading 86. How to… take care of yourself.
Sometimes, we are like bystanders in our own lives. We watch the world around us grow and change, and we let ourselves become stagnant. There can be so many reasons for this. So many. But you know what? That's no way to live. Sometimes, the most amazing thing that you can do for yourself is… Continue reading 84. How to… take a deep breath and jump in.
So... I have come to the realization in the last couple days that I am in desperate need of my personal space. I've been taking some of my photos a little ahead of time in hopes that our house guests wouldn't be here too long. They're using my room where my swanky new desktop is,… Continue reading 81. How to… stop and smell the flowers.
When we're little, we hear so many stories that start with "Once upon a time..." We hear about princesses locked in tall towers, dragons, and knights on white horses, love at first sight. So many things that make the world seem so wonderful. And we want those things. We want our very own story, and… Continue reading 75. How to… make your mark.
I've been doing a lot of thinking lately, as I'm sure some of you know if you've been following along with this train-wreck that is an amalgamation of blog and life. I started this blog because I've been some places and got a few t-shirts that I'd rather throw into the burn pile, and I… Continue reading 72. How to… make some (new) memories.
I had to do it, guys. First of all, I love both ducks and flamingos. They are adorable and fabulous in all ways, but this retexture of the Chrissy top from Vinyl for FLF just kind of sealed the deal for me. But... we're not going to talk about that. Not exactly, anyway. We're going… Continue reading 67. How to… be the duck in a flock of flamingos.
Yesterday, I lost my gran. We're still stuck in the house, doing our due diligence with social distancing to help save the world and whatnot, but even us introverts want to escape from time to time. In my case, this is ten-fold in light of the train wreck that has been the last couple weeks...and… Continue reading 60. How to… find things to smile about.
