Realities and Visions: A Birthday Post

Hello, dear readers! These are some of my favorite posts to write, because I only get to do it once a year. But tomorrow is my BIRTHDAY! So, here on the blog, I love to write a reflective post (because honestly, that's just the type of person I am), because birthdays are such a reflective… Continue reading Realities and Visions: A Birthday Post

Oh, Dear Reader

Oh, dear reader. So, this is a bit of an impromptu post, even though it's something that is always on my brain, it feels like. But after reading Destiny's thread, which has since inspired posts like Josie's (who had also written about it before) and then also helped me find another post by Kathy, now… Continue reading Oh, Dear Reader

Introvert? What Introvert?

Last weekend, I did something that I personally, as an introvert, positively, absolutely and utterly hate doing. I spoke in public. In front of 30 people. For an hour.

My Relationship With The Spooky and Scary

I absolutely love Halloween. Here's the thing, though: I'm not exactly sure why. It might be one of my top favorite holidays to celebrate. I loved dressing up as a kid and going Trick-or-Treating. As an adult, I didn't really get to do as much, but my boyfriend and some of his best friends also… Continue reading My Relationship With The Spooky and Scary
