Hello, lovelies. I don't know if it's just because my hormones are all out of whack thanks to starting my period or because I set myself up for it, but I've been reflecting a lot these past few days and getting...slightly depressed, despite living a really, really good life. Because, you know, I can't stop… Continue reading Comparison, Longing and Impatience, Oh My!
Hey there, lovelies. Last weekend, I posted on my social media accounts about how I feel in regards to the new abortions laws my country is attempting to pass; how I consider them abysmal, inhumane, absurd and as a blatant and obvious example of the government's desire and need to control women.

But I still spend enough time scrolling through Facebook and Twitter that I know I'm… Continue reading Social Media Hiatus

It's something I've personally been struggling with for quite some time, yet… Continue reading The Crave for Conversation
I've recently made the decision to switch phone companies, to cut my bill in half and minimize expenses as much as I can.

It also allowed me, as I compared… Continue reading Lessening My Social Media Intake
