Well, Shit

Oh, you gotta love the rollercoaster ride that is being a writer who overthinks (which begs the question of if there is any writer who doesn't struggle with overthinking and questioning their work). Let me tell you a story. Peruse through this blog the past, eh, year or so, and you'll find a plethora of posts discussing… Continue reading Well, Shit

My Life Can Be Told By The Awkward Yeti

First off, I love The Awkward Yeti web comic. It's fantastic and never fails to be absolutely relateable to my life. This picture popped up on my newsfeed the other day and felt particularly apt. I've written about it before, how my overthinking and anxiety causes me to focus on the negative instead of the… Continue reading My Life Can Be Told By The Awkward Yeti

A Sliver of Peace

Overthinking, friends, is a bitch. It's a bitch that I've been dealing with a lot, lately. I won't bore you with all the fine details, but needless to say, I've been overthinking certain aspect of my life lately. A lot. Needlessly.
