Remembering 2022

The best way to describe 2022 would be bitter-sweet. This year was incredibly painful and very healing at the same time.

The Hard Stuff In February, I sat down to … Continue reading Remembering 2022

Relatable Introvert Memes

Hi guys, I've been wanting to avoid people lately.

Doesn't that … Continue reading Relatable Introvert Memes

Womanhood Is Not A Curse

I wrote this post one night when I had far too much energy and a billion thoughts racing through my mind. It is muddled and goes off in random directions without warning.

Right now I'm still recovering from the flu, so please pardon me if this post is rather scatter brained. I'd really rather be sleeping right now.

Unpopular Opinions on Clothes By An Angry Human

Random Life Update: August 2022

August was a pretty uninteresting month. LOL. It was a nice, relaxing, uneventful 31 days. *shrugs* Let me think... Work Work was good.
