#Sistertips is a series for anyone who wishes they had a big sister. I’m the eldest of my five siblings. I give a unique perspective, having come from a dysfunctional family and being autistic and all, but here goes nothin’.

The good, the bad and the ugly, featuring T.C. Collins’ first novel, Hot Toddy.
“Hot Toddy” is an edgy coming-of-age novel superb for anyone who’s made (or is in the process of making) illogical, impulsive decisions. LJ’s not great with relationships and, in the heart of Hollywood, tries her hardest to make ends meet with whatever modeling jobs she can land—or at least those her friend Naomi, a fellow model who doubles as a genuine friend not out to sabotage other models, hooks her up with using her own connections. But they don’t fit the lifestyle LJ’s best friend and roommate keeps encouraging her to live, so she is forced to find a method that leads her on a path of self-discovery and redeemed self-esteem.
I know I just posted one of these a few days ago, but the latest addition to this series was supposed to go up at least a week ago. The desktop obtained a mysterious virus, “mysterious” because I don’t know how and find it a little hard to figure out what happened by talking to […]
This post is a shout-out to anyone and everyone who has ever been hurt by the church. I am participating in #ApologizefortheChurch, because I believe it needs to change.

My life lately, in bite-sized, easy-to-swallow chunks—because no one can swallow an entire steak whole…and I’m not interested in boring you to death.
(I tried to be punny. Did it work? ?)
I got kinda lazy last weekend. I don’t totally remember what I did, but I was reading and watching a lot of movies—and I discovered video works on my phone without freaking said phone out, so guess who has been catching up on her shows lately?
Kicking off my new interview series, Cool People, is Georgie Luhur. She’s designed three of my themes, lives in Sydney, and works for Campaign Monitor.
She’s also undeniably obsessed with tea.
This is literally a half-assed recap of my month because 1) I’m too lazy to put effort into it after attending a cousin’s wedding shower brunch earlier today, 2) this desktop is Windows XP (which was officially unsupported beginning two years ago) and 3) I had so much happening it’s too much to include.
I’m also pretty sure I bruised my hands trying to move my bookshelf. ?
