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. I might need a little… Continue reading 220. How to… celebrate you!
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…
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.
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.
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.
For those of you who don't know, the photo-taking process for me usually involves about 50 or so shots of the same pose with different windlights and lighting, the occasional, "hmm" and lots of cursing. Sometimes, I'll even invent new words! Most of the time, the final product you guys see is just the best… Continue reading 204. How to… get the most out of those “happy accidents”
You're going to hear about pride a lot this month. Now, my English professors would slap me silly for using the term inside the definition, but pride is exactly what it sounds like. It's being proud of yourself. Having confidence in yourself. Loving yourself for all that you are - your best qualities, your flaws,… Continue reading 200. How to… come out of the closet.
As someone who has 'It's been a rough week' as a staple in the vocabulary, I like to think I've become somewhat of an expert in the not-so-subtle art of not giving a f*ck when the world hands me lemons. This is not to say that I can't make a kick-butt glass of lemonade. On… Continue reading 199. How to… look for the positives.
