I’m okay if it’s […]Continue reading "Touch aversion is valid and should be respected, regardless of the reason."
I’ll be 30 this year. Can you believe it? I’m still occasionally asked if I’m old enough to throw trash away into the cardboard compactor at work. 😅 I take Solara shopping with me and earn the minimum of one double-take, like, She has a child?? I’ll get to turning 30 later, late March. I […]Continue reading "🥳 Hallå 2021!"
To quote Avenue Beat, low-key fuck 2020. It’s been a long year. I published less than 50 posts this year, just barely 30,000 words, on the blog, and…I’m not even bothered. 2020 was comprised of nonstop hypothetical situations featuring a pre- and post-apocalyptic experience — and both, and the in-between, is the whole fucking year.

Amish fiction is the kind of fiction I read when I want something wholesome, old and filled with drama and tropes. I haven’t read it in a while, because I realized I preferred the stories based on reality that are told in movie form, because of certain common Amish fiction tropes. 1. Christian fiction Christian […]Continue reading "Common Amish fiction tropes that have little to do with the Amish"
How do mermaids have sex? Asking for a friend. Girls’ Night In is one of the few newsletters I receive these days. It’s all about self-care, which is something I’m prioritizing during this pandemic. Sourdough everything bagels. My latest app obsession is Nooddle. All the recipes are theirs, carefully curated by their Spanish team and […]Continue reading "Eat, Love, Chill vol. 2"
