July 17th

So last week was terrible, and I missed my Wednesday WIP check in. Not much has changed since last time. Ingrid is still in progress. As I was working on it, I reached a row that was almost all popcorns, and I just took one look at the chart and immediately felt tired. So I…

Smol pleasures

One of very few advantages of a sleeping disorder is being able to get up at 4 am without an alarm to watch Critical Role live on a Friday morning. Another one is having extra crafting time. Also, if your kid is a teenager and can look after herself, you can watch the rerun on…

Health and I

Me: *wakes up with a sore throat and runny nose after looking after my sick kid, and is obviously infected* Also me: *spends half an hour barefoot in the unheated kitchen to prepare breakfast* Also me: *eats raw veggies and organic flax seed and other tasteless crap because health food* Also me: *has not eaten…

Pro tip

Life-hack for my mind

I accidentally stumbled upon the phrase bullet journaling a couple of months ago and it was a life saver for me! Because I am very forgetful, my mind rejects the idea of regular schedules, and I am, in many senses of the word, very unhealthy, I have been struggling with keeping my life organized for…

Brenna Twohy

The picture above was in a random post on tumblr and it had no comments. These words have captured my heart and gave it a big, warm hug. I went on a short hunt on the internet to find the author and I have identified her as the amazing Brenna Twohy. THIS IS WHERE you…
