Hey there, lovelies. So, you might know that, in November of 2016, I started running, which really changed a lot of things about my life. Not only did it help me find a different way to manage stress, but it also helped me lose weight (something I'd never been able to pull off), get active… Continue reading The Only Problem Is (Probably) Myself
Hello, dear readers! As you might have surmised, last weekend was my birthday! It was a really lovely one; perhaps one of the better ones I've had since planned birthday parties stopped being a thing, like when I was a kid.

I'm in kind of a weird mood tonight, friends, so just hang on with me on this one. This week has been...kinda weird, I guess? Overall, it's been pretty good. In some ways, I've been productive: blogging, paying the bills, catching up on some backlogged ARCs. But in other ways--I'd argue two of the most… Continue reading Weird Moods, Weird Thoughts

Everything cost something, you spend most of your life working so you can afford to buy things, it's… Continue reading Another Rant About Money…
