Pressure and Expectations: Making it Financially as an Author

Hello, dear readers! This week, I wanted to write about money, but in a very different sense than what I usually do, i.e., ranting about my lack of it and the difficulty of surviving as an adult in this consistently-increasing-living-expenses-without-an-increase-in-pay society (and that's without getting into the bullshit that's going on in the White House right now).… Continue reading Pressure and Expectations: Making it Financially as an Author

Another Rant About Money…

...because it's something that I can always rant about, apparently. But let's be real. If you know me, you know that money is on my mind pretty much all the time. Because how can it not be? 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…

That hopelessness and the overwhelming, "What… Continue reading So Much More

Another Rant On Adulting

Let me start off by saying I'm really freakin' lucky. I have a good job (that's now full-time *throws balloons*). I have a reliable car. A cute apartment. I can afford groceries, utilities and Internet. I have good health and am in a pretty good mental state. For the most part, I'm completely independent when… Continue reading Another Rant On Adulting

Quest for Happiness: Week Two

Let's jump right into it, shall we? Fitness: Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier. Last Week's Goal: Go to the gym. Once. Status: Success! I didn't leave myself any room for error on this one. Tuesday was the first day I had time to go to the gym. When I got home, in-between jobs,… Continue reading Quest for Happiness: Week Two
