Hello, lovelies! I apologize to all of my international readers, as this post is very US-centric today (yet, unfortunately, the results of this election are going to have a rippling affect on everyone, I fear, so perhaps not as irrelevant as it may seem). But, I wanted to use this post to explain to any… Continue reading Why I Am Voting for Biden–And You Should Be, Too!
Hello lovelies! Get prepared for a super personal post! Content warnings for fatphobia, weight loss, weight gain, self-hatred. I was planning on posting this on Monday, but then I wrote it and now I have to post it immediately, so I didn't chicken out. I've been thinking about this ever since I spoke about it with… Continue reading How Internalized Fatphobia has Fucked Me
Hello, lovelies. Today, I'm feeling nostalgic. 2020 was the year where I had planned to travel to New Zealand for two weeks for the best vacation of my life and then go to Puerto Rico for a work conference in October. Obviously, neither of those things happened or will happen, thanks to living in a… Continue reading What I Miss About Traveling
Hello, lovelies! I hope you're all doing well, the weather is being kind to you wherever you are, you ate something good today, everyone was wearing their mask whenever you went out (or better yet, you got to stay home to protect yourself) and you got to pet puppies in your dreams or in real… Continue reading Return to Academia
Hello, lovelies! Happy Monday! It's time for another personal post (so, warning you now, before you curse at me when I lure you into reading about me as a human who emotions and struggles, instead of our usual banter about books or writing wonders). But, I apparently suffer from black and white thinking, which is… Continue reading Searching for Gray Amidst Black and White
Hello lovelies! I hope you all had a good, restful weekend and that you're doing what you need to, in order to take care of yourself. The world is still a raging dumpster fire and it's very easy to let your mind get caught up in everything. And while it is important to stay informed… Continue reading Be Kind To Yourself
Hello, lovelies! So, as you may have saw in last week's personal post, I was a little bit depressed and last week didn't really go well. I wasn't in the mood to do anything and it was just hard to constantly make the new goal each morning of trying to do certain things, like get… Continue reading New Routine, Let’s Go!
Hello, lovelies. This has been a weird week in what has been a bizarre, depressing, overwhelming, terrifying--and yet, in some ways, desperately needed--year. I'm still working from home and my day job is in the throngs of it's busiest season, so most days, I'm left drained and overworked. I'm also still working on client editing… Continue reading Seeking Advice to Help Me Win Against Myself?
Hello, lovelies! I have a really special post to write today. As you may know, right now is the nomination period of the 2020 Book Blogger Awards, hosted by May @ Forever and Everly and Marie @ Drizzle and Hurricane Books. It's the 4th Annual awards and I had such a blast writing my nominations… Continue reading 2020 Book Blogger Awards Nominations!
Hello, lovelies. This is been a hard few weeks for so many people, but especially for black people, as police brutality continues to target the black community due to the racist foundations the policy force is built upon, supported by a country which is still deeply rooted in the racist ties that began it. If… Continue reading Black Lives Matter
