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. Our newest client has very surface-level emotions that change at the drop of a hat, so I've been learning a lot about that.

2021 recap: Begining of Fearslaying

I changed a lot in 2021. It was a good year. I was terrified that it would be a repeat of the past few years but God allowed it to be one of healing and life. Yes, there were hard parts.

A De-Energized Writer, Halloween Protests, Guinea Pigs and Ketchup: Realities of Life After a Move

The day started like any other day this past month. That meant one thing: chaos. This is particularly hard for a schedule-loving writer who is in the middle of a three week writing competition.

Phases of a Caffeinated Writer

I've always loved to write. As I kid, I sat at the old broken laptop and painstakingly pressed each key and typed out the story of my limited life and experience with chickens. (And I was so proud when I spelled computer correctly). As a tween, I would write for hours a day and create … Continue reading Phases of a Caffeinated Writer

Hidden Treasures

One of the big things that I do each move is to downsize and get rid of a lot of needless junk. I am an extremely sentimental person. I still have a coffee stirrer that I got when I was like seven or eight and we were moving. Don't ask why I kept it. 'cause … Continue reading Hidden Treasures
